I know, I know. Work is getting in the way of your Halloween preparations. Or perhaps your school work is taking your mind off more important things like ‘what to wear when trick or treating’.
Well, after a bit of searching, I have found 5 games that are guaranteed to keep you entertained and get your mind back onto the important stuff – Halloween!
Get your gaming fingers ready for some seriously scary gaming action.
I think I might have played the first game, but wasn’t overly impressed. However, this little bundle of amusement was quite entertaining and sucked me right in.
It’s a nice, simple platform game, very much in the style of Mario, but your character has the ability to bite and ultimately kill people. I never knew that being a cute little vampire could be so much fun!
Avoid the stakes and flaming torches as you run (and fly) about the place collecting items and ultimately looking for your lost teddy.
It’s great fun and really nicely put together. Have a go now!
Definitely one for the more serious gamer, Sonny 2 is a very complex and challenging RPG, and if you allow it to, it will get you really absorbed.
You control Sonny, a zombie, and his friend(s) as they travel around generally looking for answers and kicking butt. As you progress in the game, you gain new powers, find new weapons and equipment and develop your character in order to make yourself even more bad-ass.
I got really into this one for a while and finished it. You can save your progress which means that you can always come back later!
You’re sent into a laboratory somewhere to find out what has happened to an experiment that went horribly wrong. What you find is a hellish environment where weird little headless piglets try to nibble you and crazed scientists try to shoot you. Okay, so it doesn’t sound like the most exciting of games, but it is actually pretty cool.
There are lots of good weapons for you to pick up and use, and being a platform shooter, you have to make sure that you’re timing your jumping and running right too.
It gets pretty tough, and has some scary bosses to beat. Plus, there is blood and gore just about everywhere. Just the sort of thing to relieve some stress in the office!
It looks cool, it’s easy as anything to pick up, and it’s just straight forward, old fashioned, skull bashing fun! Welcome to Monster Bash.
You control a rather cute monster in an impressive 3D environment. You task: to smack skulls with a club as far as possible. It might not sound like much, but I was instantly hooked.
“What do you mean I should be working” I said to my boss, “what do you mean my time is up” I told the people in the internet cafe, “what do you mean I’m married” I told my wife. No matter how hard you try, you’ll want to keep going at this one, to see just how far you can hit those bones.
The graphics are very cool, and there is even an excellent spooky soundtrack.
Okay, not the greatest game out of the lot, but still good fun. This game take a nice normal sport like basketball and turns it into something really halloweenerrific!
You control a Frankenstein’s monster type character and you task is to dribbe around the court, avoiding skeletons and collecting jack-o-lanterns.
When you have collected the pumpkins, you’re free to shoot for the hoop, and when you do, you get to the next level.
It’s simple, it’s fun, and it looks very cool. Might not have the staying power of the others, but it’s still worth checking out!
