Halloween is slowly creeping up on us, and if most of you are planning a busy weekend with parties, trick-or-treating or games, you might also want to take a look at some of these iPhone app’s that will get you in the mood.
In each title listed below, we will provide a link to each game via the iTunes App Store so you can easily download it just in time for Halloween. If this was trick-or-treat, consider this our “treat.”
Pumpkin Ninja – In all honesty, i’ve never heard of a pumpkin ninja before, so that must mean they are good at keeping in the shadows, although this game could potentially force them out in to the wild this Halloween. Anyway, the idea of this game is to swipe your fingers at falling pumpkins on the screen to become a “true ninja.” 3 fails and it’s game over.
iDrakula – This quite innovating application once downloaded, will send text messages and voicemails to your iPhone that re-tell the story of Dracula, but in a more imaginative kinda way. For instance, one morning you might wake up to find a text message from your “friend” Lucy Westerna complaining that after hanging out with the Count last night, she woke up with “a wicked hickey.” Maybe not one for the Bram Stoker enthusiast, but fun non the less.
SceneIt? Horror – If you don’t know what SceneIt? is, you must have been living under a tombstone for the past decade. SceneIt is a movie triva game that uses media, quotes and puzzles to test you on your film knowledge. This special halloween version will test you on all the greatest horror flicks ever made. Perfect for you horror fans and also great for parties.
Halloween Soundlab – This one is great for those of you who are hosting your own halloween party this year. Forget searching around for last years ‘Halloween Sound Collection CD’ or spending hours finding and downloading a compilation of sounds from the internet. This nifty little app comes with loads of spooky sounds from screams and boiling cauldrons to scary organs, rocking chairs. All you have to do is hook it up to your stereo and you’re done.
Parents Carve-a-Pumpkin – For those of you new to pumpkin carving, you can try out this new app which will show you how to mix and match several design ideas via a virtual pumpkin before trying them for real. You can also send and share your ideas via Facebook and Twitter when you are finished being creative.
True Blood Comics – Currently only a limited series of six issues, the True Blood comics are based on the HBO vampire series and have been adapted for use on the iPhone and iPad. If you are a fan, check these out.
Zombie Smash! – Probably one of our favourite picks this halloween, ZombieSmash! is a survival comedy game that does exactly what it says. You use a range of destructive implements to smash the “living” daylights out of zombies. A perfect stress reliever, or time waster. This one has fun written all over it.
DOOM Resurrection – For those of you who remember DOOM and how much of a big game it turned out to be, this one is for you. Remade for the iPhone, this FPS will have you blowing away all sorts of menacing enemies just by using your smartphone. What a long way we have come since DOOM first appeared on our PC screens.
Halloween Postage – Great app for sending photo’s with a Halloween themed ‘postcard.’ Capture all those glorious moments over Halloween, whether it be your child s first trick-or-treat or a rather embarrassing moment at a drink-fuelled party. This app certainly adds to the occasion.
HauntFinder – If you don’t want to stay at home this halloween and would rather do something a little more ‘realistic,’ look no further than the HauntFinder. An application that hordes an entire online database of the best ‘haunted’ tours or haunted hayrides. Made especially for the halloween extremists, this app will give you haunted locations within a 200-mile radius of your current location.
