[Update] Warning: Slender spin-off for iOS is an unofficial knock-off

Don't be fooled by the App Store description for "Slender-Man", which claims that the Slender series is "finally available on iOS".

It is actually a clone, and definitely not endorsed by the series's original creator.

Slender, if you've been living under a rock, is an indie horror phenomenon for PC. In the game you traipse around a dark forest, picking up scraps up paper while being pursued by a faceless man in a sharp suit, called Slenderman.

The game's reputation as being one of the most scary games around has helped turned it into something of a viral hit, and a number of games is now being made in this new, super-scary series.

Slender-Man for iOS, however, is not one of them. "This is not by us or Mark Hadley, so we do not officially endorse this in any way," a spokesperson for Blue Isle Studios - which is helping make a sequel called Slender: The Arrival - told Pocket Gamer.

So - don't waste your money on this shameless, 69p / 99c knock-off. If it's even available anymore, that is - Blue Isle told Pocket Gamer that it will seek legal action and try to get the game pulled from the App Store.

Updated on September 29th, at 19:40: The developer of this iOS game has since changed the description, to remove the statement about the game being "finally available on iOS". Now it focuses on the fact that it's a "brand new survival horror game", that's "based upon the Slenderman urban legend and Der GroƟmann myth".

You can play the real Slender: The Eight Pages on PC, here.
