“Soul Trapper is basically an interactive radio drama for the 21st century. It sports a surprisingly great story, phenomenal voice acting and some great touch based mini games. It’s all great stuff and easily the best gaming experience I've had on my iPod touch so far. My only complaint is that it's over too soon. (…) I was still itching for more. Highly recommended. Can't wait to see what Realtime Associates cooks up next.”

There’s a techno-occultist working the dark supernatural streets of Los Angeles and he needs your help. Learn more about the 27 year old Kane Pryce and the mysterious Soul Trap device he wields.

Your imagination is running wild, drumming up images of the man, his supernaturally charged contraption and how he’ll fulfill his mission. As the story unfolds through your headphones, it grabs you and draws you in.

If anything else exists, you’re not aware of it right now. You’re fully engaged, pulled back in time and caught up in the rich voices that are captivating your brain as you listen to the skeptics, nay-sayers and – wait! Is that a ghost or a demon you hear?

There’s a sense of evil in the air and it sends a chill down your spine. You just knew that the reporter is trouble, the church is haunted, that the rich recluse is somehow involved! The drama and intrigue continue to hold you as you progress through the storyline. Kane’s plight stirs your emotions as he experiences danger, mysteries, and yes, love. He can’t go through it alone, though. If you don’t help, the dark ghost forces will roam this realm forever more.

You’re thinking, “What can I do?” The answer is, plenty.

Start by getting comfortable with your earphones on then get ready for a more than three hour interactive audio adventure. Listen intently and follow instructions. It won’t be hard to do; the vintage radio drama format totally captures your interest and when it’s over, you’ll want lots more.

Soul Trapper is a totally unique and amazing gaming experience. You’ve never played this way before. The app is richly produced, seamlessly interwoven with interactivity, navigation and audio puzzles. Memory, stereo perception, audio pattern recognition and mastery of action sequences are all called into play as you help the story progress through chapters. Get it right and you’ll work side by side with Kane Pryce to hunt down, capture and send ghosts to the afterlife, where they belong.

The Soul Trapper audio game has some awesome features:
* 3+ hours of headphones-only, interactive audio adventure
* Top quality, spellbinding audio drama production
* Unique audio-based puzzles
* Challenges your memory, stereo perception, and pattern recognition skills
* Catches and holds your interest, from start to finish
* Game can be played in chapters or all at once

Comments and Ratings for Soul Trapper: Episode 1 - Ollie Ollie Oxen Free!

Good good game (1.4)
22/03/2012 10:11:00 5/5 By Wendywoo545
I really like this game, there isn't anything else like it ok app store, highly original. Its a choose your adventure style game with audio puzzles and a good, if a little cheesy story. Gameplay is good I didn't get stuck on chapter 5, probably because I had headphones which made it easier to hear where the sound is coming from. I think it is worth the money, hopefully there will be future additions and more stories. Overall if you want a game to get your teeth into this could well be the one for you. A +

Fantastic! (1.4)

Spent roughly 10 hours trying to complete this - couldn't figure out the best way to complete the last level, but finally managed to get my fingers in a position where by they were in the right place just over the buttons. Keep up the good work - I look forward to seeing future versions.

Innovative and fun (1.4)

This is a brilliant concept. I very rarely bother to write reviews, but feel compelled to tell everyone to have a go at this. Can't wait for the next episode. As as for the sexism comments - rubbish - get a life! The characters fit the story for goodness sake.

Brilliant! (1.0)

Of all the games I've ever played, this has to be the most original and absorbing. Put a pair of decent headphones on(the right way round!), and you're "sucked in". Very high production values. You listen to a well written narrative, acted story, with very good soundscapes, and every so often you get the chance to intereact with (mainly stereo) audio games. Could have been less repetitive sound loops on the interactive bits, less sexist, and a bit more graphic animation would have been good. But overall, a highly unique, polished product- wll definitely watch out for the sequel!

Excellent game (1.0)

I would defo recommend this game. Good RPG. Can't wait for episode 2. Hurry up and release it

Great Idea (1.0)
09/02/2009 00:16:00 4/5 By Pricklyleaf
Great game, although it could be better. It is a bit expensive. I enjoyed the story, although I did find it a bit sexist, which it really didn't need to be. I really liked the concept, though there needs to be more interaction and less repetition of tasks. You think you've completed an action and then find you have to do it again another 3 times which can be frustrating. I would recommend this game, and will be eagerly waiting the sequel, but hope there will be more interaction and less sexism in the next one.

Can't wait for the next one (1.0)

Brilliant game, fun (although sometimes frustrating).

Hmm... Not bad at all... (1.0)
25/01/2009 11:52:00 4/5 By ohdannyboy1974
... This is a well-polished product and has been made with very high production values. It's unique as far as I can tell, and is quite enjoyable. It's not really as interactive as it should be, with very few actual 'choices', such that whilst you appear to be presented with several options within each chapter, in reality it's a linear progression, with 'loops' occuring until you make the correct 'choice'. I'd give it four stars if it were cheaper (say £2.99 at the most) but as it is it's a good 3 stars. It's advertised as discounted at the moment, but I wouldn't pay more than the current asking price.

Great concept, brilliantly executed (1.0)
09/01/2009 20:57:00 4/5 By Demonaka
What a fantastic idea. This is a cross between an audioplay and a point'n'click adventure game, and it actually works. The idea is that you interact with the game through its soundscape, listening to the world around our hero and acting accordingly. The audio production is top-notch, and quickly pulls you into the story. As for the story itself; well, it won't change your outlook on life, but it is absorbing. By the end you will care about the protagonist - something I wish I could say for every book I've ever read - and it does its best to tug at the heartstrings in the last few chapters. I definitely look forward to Episode 2. Now, if like some reviewers here you get stuck on chapter 5: Go left to the food stand, then right and down to the round-up ride (check the map), then just follow the screams and manic laughter! (Wait until Cain stops talking to himself, then if you hear the clown off to your left, go left, etc. It shouldn't take more than ten moves.) Oh, and you really need to be using headphones. Just in case you weren't.

Chapter 5 did it for me too.. (1.0)
22/12/2008 23:16:00 2/5 By Fizzbox
The concept is good (even though I have no time for the usual supernatural nonsense) and I too was getting into it until Chapter 5. Can't get past it. So quite unhappy really. Three stars for effort.
