Konami's Silent Hill has made it to the App Store... at least in European stores, for now [App Store]. U.S. customers will have to wait until it appears in the U.S. store, which we would expect to happen shortly.

Silent Hill - The Escape is a first person action game set in the mysterious surroundings of Silent Hill, the cursed town where your worst nightmares become reality. Ready your gun under the guidance of a dull, flickering flashlight. Encounter fearsome creatures only found in Silent Hill and fight your way through 10 threatening environments

Konami recently announced they would be brining a number of titles to the iPhone including Silent Hill, Dance Dance Revolution, and Metal Gear Solid.

App Store Link (Europe Only): Silent Hill, £3.49

Thanks, ipressbuttons

Update: iPhoneGameNetwork offers this gameplay video, and commentary:

Overall it’s a pretty average game with some good presentation and graphics, but the controls and lack of depth disappoint.

    looks horrible ;) one review in the german itunes store recommends the game and points out that it's pretty well worth the 4,99€. think i'm gonna get it just for the sake of having a nice fps...

    its so interesting to see how all these devs do controls in a different way, this works but i wouldnt be able to say how well without spending longer with the game, looks nice and framerates are good though. also cheaper than most new big name games.

    It's not available in the Swiss store...

    @bob: how are the actual controls working? how do you move, shoot, ask the nurse for aspirin?

    So it's not an "on rails" shooter?

    @aen: wherever you place a finger on the screen a 'dpad' appears, fine movement can be done with tlt for aiming and tapping the crosshair fires, also turning seems to 'snap' making it slightly more usable.

    when you say "we expect to see shortly"
    Do you mean like later today, or like this week?

    Trying it now - looks a little cheap to be honest - more time needed to assess

    What is it with KONAMI, its like they just can't think outside the box, the graphics look great, but the gameplay and AI looks horrible, and the control scheme? did any of the Devs at KONAMI pay any attention to hero of sparta or other games that use Virtual analog sticks?

    Hope this bombs so badly that Konami won't even recoup the $23 it took to develop it.

    The graphic looks great but really, are they going to scare me to death with this kind of game play or put me to sleep?

    The control looks difficult and I hate it when I have to tap the enemy to shoot. They should take a look at Alien Mangle by phart games. Now, that's the kind of FPS for the iphone I'm talking about! Doh!

    Why in the hell is it in portrait mode? I'd rather it be in landscape.

    people you have no idea! this game is great! the video is very shitty and the guy playing it has no idea how to play it. the controlls are one of the best for iphone, forget about virtual analog stick! wh0otf said that? this is touchscreen!

    you actually aim by moving the phone, and there are different fire modes, one is triggering the iphone like a gun, very funny, play the game with headphone in your bed and ull have nice dreams, the game got a very good atmosphere, but didnt play much yet...

    I somehow agree with him

    • Lulz

      I agree as well... at first I was like, wha? why is there only 4 ways to move? but if you look at it like a game on its own, not comparing it to the others in the series, you will find it to actually be really fun.if you wear headphones and sit in a dark basement with the TV off, you can actually be startled by something sneaking up on you or being cornered by Pyramid Head while struggling to quickly reload your gun before he kills you. It has scared the crap out of me before if I was walking and a nurse caught up to me from behind and made a loud grunting noise. Very good game if you have the right mood.
