Sliding, jumping, and collecting candies. In Hallows' Eve the Game, you want to collect as much candy as you can. However, you have to watch out for the Scaries.
Timing is everything. Timing is crucial, because if you jump at the wrong time you could end up dying.
What is it about?
Hallows' Eve the Game is a casual and simple side-scroller endless runner. You take on the character of Janet, Sally, Ruben, or Doug, kids with costumes who just want to get some sweet candy.
Why we love it
This game starts off slow, perhaps too slow. It's aimed at ages four and up, and that might be why it moves at a snail's pace at first. However, the longer you play, the faster your character walks and the quicker the Scaries come at you. Timing is everything in Hallows' Eve. The candies are often placed high in the sky, requiring a double-jump to get to them. If you don't time your jumps just right, you'll miss most of the sweets. Of course, poorly timed jumps can also send you careening into the Ghosts, and thus your death. What's really cool about Hallows' Eve is the research that went into the game. The characters are based on a collection of vintage Halloween masks from the 60s, 70s, and 80s by Ben Cooper. The environment and backgrounds are based on the buildings and streets of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with graffiti by various old-school artists. The music is inspired by 1970s Italian horror movie soundtracks.
