The Corpse Party [$17.99] franchise made its debut on iOS back in 2012 in Japan. The original hit the App Store and had no support for English at the time, but thankfully we now have two of the three Corpse Party games localized. If you’re ready for some absolutely creepy horror and genuinely scary moments, you might want to check out the two localized releases here, as 5pb. is having a sale on the App Store for the full franchise. This sale is on until August 20th, with some great discounts on the included titles. While the games are available on multiple platforms, there are some cases where the iOS version is the definitive version, such as with Blood Drive. I’m a big fan of playing adventure games and visual novels on portable devices, so having these on iOS is fantastic.

Corpse Party [$17.99] - Reduced all the way from $21.99, this is the first entry in 5pb’s Heavenly Host series. Corpse Party is a very special game for me and one that I can easily recommend owning on any portable platform. I've played it 4 times so far, across every platform it has been released on in English. While I’m still annoyed that the iOS version is iPhone only (it plays on iPad, but isn't optimised for tablets), any horror fan will find something to love here. This is also the lowest price I’ve seen it at on any platform ever, so a definite bargain.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive [$31.99] - Blood Drive is the end of the Heavenly Host series. If you’re wondering where the second game is, well 5pb. haven’t localized the iOS release yet, but it is discounted to $3.99 if you’d like a Japanese version of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows [$22.99]. Blood Drive was made for PS Vita and unfortunately suffered a ton of performance problems on that platform. Shaun reviewed the iOS version and, as you expect, it is the definitive version of Blood Drive. This is also quite a hefty discount, bringing it to $9.99 from the high price of $31.99.

    I only need Book of Shadows so for 3.99 i may grab it now. my main question is will it work with ios11 because it hasn't updated in a few years.

  • Milotorou

    Never going to play this again.... It scares me so much for some reason 😂

    I did finish the first one though and its very good

  • chuckfinley

    More importantly 32 or 64 bits?
    Getting tired of Devs putting apps on sale when they're soon obsolete.

    • Dailon Huskey

      That's what I want to know
      I have two of the three but I don't even know how to check the ones I have ha
      Okay I can confirm for you that blood drive and corpse party the original are good to go on ios11 just no sure about book of shadows

      • Milotorou

        Settings > General > About > Applications

        There you will have a list of the 32bit applications on your device if youre on iOS 10.3 or higher

        And the games are 64bit since they were updated in 2016, nothing to worry about

      • Dailon Huskey

        Book of shadows was last updated sept 23 2014 is that bad news for it?

      • Milotorou

        Someone would need to clarify for this one I guess

      • baconcow

        It is not available on the iOS 11 App Store and has a note that the game requires a developer update, so it is currently 32-bit. A good rule-of-thumb is that almost anything updated in June 2015 or later will be 64-bit (Note: there are a few 32-bit apps that were delayed and have update dates in June 2015; e.g. Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition).

  • SoraXSky

    Just wish Book of Shadows was in English on iOS.

  • Shari Morehead

    What is the Corpse Party BloodCovered Repeated Fear? It's on sale for $3.99 too.

    I have "Corpse Party" but still need to play it. Wasn't sure where Repeated Fear comes in. Oy these names haha.

    Tempted to buy Blood Drive too, even through Book of Shadows is in between and my Japanese is not great for gaming yet.

    • Dailon Huskey

      Blood drive is very good

    • Milotorou

      Repeated fear is just the japanese version of the first.

  • Boobi

    Shaun gave corpse party 2 stars and commented on the crashes, I get its on sale but if its still crashes, Shaun can you clarify ( I do see the iPhone only is annoying)

    • Shaun Musgrave

      The crashes have since been fixed, buy without fear.

  • Mariko

    I've got the Vita version of Blood Drive, does this version have the same audio mix as the Vita version? Is the first one only SD, and Blood Drive is HD? I ask because I'm on a 12.9" iPad Pro, and it's frustrating as hell to play SD stuff since I've got small hands, and have trouble with controls that go further inward, since they aren't made for that resolution.
