In Fear I Trust is the first game of its kind from Chillingo, but it feels a bit like playing through the third or fourth sequel in a horror movie series. That apex point in a cinema franchise tends to be when the production is nicely polished, but the concept begins to feel bland and generic. In Fear I Trust is similarly a well-made but somewhat forgettable thriller. Most of that responsibility belongs to the story, which feels unfocused and scattershot even within the short span of these first two episodes. Without a clear indication of what exactly is going on, it crams in spooky clichés by the bucketful.
While the week isn’t packed with long-awaited releases, you’ll still find a handful of potentially interesting new App Store picks — including Chillingo’s horror-tinged In Fear I Trust, free-to-play racer Motocross Meltdown, and a free port of role-playing classic Tales of Phantasia that purports to be free of mandatory in-app purchases.
