This week has been a ghoul filled week with all manner of scares and terror. I have brought some of the best horror games around and with some really inspired and interesting ones I feel it has been a rather great week for horror titles.
This weeks round up comes from my brother computer and as this thing still relies on steam I have no chance of sorting out the usual featured image. As always click the title for the article or the image for the game link and enjoy this Halloween scare fest.
A fantastic little title that involves dancing on people’s graves to Irish folk music. Talk about a Halloween title that has it all. Very amusing and a great deal of fun.
A very well made and interesting title going around killing octopuses with a shotgun really should be more people s idea of ideal Halloween games. With a fantastic narrator over the top of the game Cephalopods plays, sounds a looks the part for this Halloween.
This is a fantastic retro take on Halloween platforming, really bringing us back to the good old days of games. Taking inspiration from the early Castlevania titles along with a few others 8-Bit Halloween is a load of nostalgia fun.
Body Ladder takes a lot of inspiration from the typical horror scene with a mad professor developing an army of clones (not unlike Star Wars in many ways than). You therefore have to (in all your top hat wearing glory) fend off these foul beasts and escape the only way you know how, on a ladder… Made of bodies.
A fantastically constructed title all around with great visuals and amazing audio this one will really set off the horrors of Halloween. What is more creepy than children? And I don’t mean because they are indeed a nightmare most the time. Shadow Tag plays well and will be sure to bring the fear this Halloween.
A week of tricks and treats, horrors and delights is down and although Halloween is still no here this should give you plenty of spooky games to keep you busy until the day. Be sure to check back tomorrow for an all new week of all new games.
