Halloween is here, and we gave you three themed reviews yesterday. Below are three more reviews of Halloween games that were worth covering. Just the verdict is included for all three as well as my videos of the games in action. So now that's six Halloween games for you to decide between, plus we have full reviews of Eyegore's Eye Blast, and Undead Attack! Pinball all ready on the site, see the links at the bottom. Also at the bottom is my rankings of all Eight Halloween games I've reviewed in October to help you choose the cream of the crop. Tons of games are released, and we can only do an in-depth review on so many. So we have come up with a new format we will use for a few games that go together from time to time. If you would like a full review of any of these three titles, please let me know in the comments. Please give any feedback on this format of reviews. Monster Kill is one of the best Halloween themed games I’ve yet to play. It truly is the iPhone take on Castle defense. You get to use different finger gestures to dispose of the monsters. It’s feels great swiping the screen to cut them in half, or drawing a lightning bolt to electrocute, or drawing an arrow point for a fireball. The game is just so much fun, and it will keep you coming back for more and more and more. Go against the mummy, dracula, wolf man, and frankenstein doing all sorts of things to them just with the swipe of your finger. Maybe the best aspect is that the monsters come towards you rather than moving side to side like in all the other castle defense games. Open Feint is also included for your high scores as well as having tons of achievements. The game looks absolutely spectacular exemplified by the remarkable design of the monsters, blood squirting, and electrocuted bodies. The horror theme sound track is actually a joy to listen to as well. A weird omission is that you can’t see the health of your fence during the rounds, only after a level. The one problem is that you only get four gestures to kill the monsters. It’s a top notch game for Halloween, and really one of the better games overall. It is a must buy for $1.99.
Halloween Rankings1.) Eyegore's Eye Blast 2.) Monster Kill 3.) Zombie Pizza 4.) Scarecrow 5.) Mystery Mania 6.) Undead Attack! Pinball 7.) Horror Racing 8.) Vempire To sum up, if you want a halloween themed game that will still be great a year from now you can't do better than Eyegore's Eye Blast or Monster Kill, or even both. Also Zombie Pizza is definitely right there in terms of worth buying. Hopefully you picked up Scarecrow yesterday for free, but its still easily worth $0.99. Finally since its Halloween what better way to get you in the mood than seeing my halloween decorations at my house in 2007, and 2008.
Happy Halloween!Bwah Ha Ha Ha Ha.
