With just a couple of weeks to go before Halloween, it appears that Mikey Shorts is all set for the scary occasion.
Mikey Shorts is, of course, the title character in the superbly entertaining iOS platformer released last August by BeaverTap Games.
The game proved to be such a great success for BeaverTap that the developer decided to come out with some Halloween-themed levels as a thank you to players. The thing is, Mikey Shorts had reached the maximum number of Game Center leaderboards. So, BeaverTap settled on packaging the new levels into a separate game instead.
The result? The suitably named Mikey Shorts Halloween.

Mikey Shorts Halloween offers the same superbly entertaining casual 2-D platformer gameplay found in the original game. Except that it’s now steeped in fear and trembling.
All right, not exactly. There are plenty of zombie bots, petrified spirits, and perilous platforms, though.
Mikey Shorts Halloween contains four new levels in two Halloween-themed environments. The game also offers over 90 disguises to wear, in keeping with the costume craziness of the occasion.
In addition, Mikey Shorts Halloween lets you race against a ghost of your best score so far. Spooky!
Designed for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Mikey Shorts Halloween is available now in the App Store for free. The original game, which has been updated with 12 disguises from Mikey Shorts Halloween, is available for only $0.99.
