Molly and Tom brave a haunted house to rescue their friend Ed, who was taken by a band of Halloween baddies. Armed with a flashlight to see and garlic, players use the arrow keys to direct the duo through the house, picking up the life-giving garlic, extra batteries and keys that help them unlock doors that get them close to Ed. This adventure does have ghosts and ghouls but they're not very scary, they just wander around stealing your garlic... when you run out, the duo runs out of the house!
Always wanted to play a Halloween-themed version of Bejeweled? Well Halloween Smash is a simpler version of the gem-popping game with candy corn, witches, skulls and bats in place of the regular brightly colored gems. While it has a timer, it's a good spooky-free way for kids to pass the time.
Nope, it's not a possessed Prius. In Haunted Hybrid, players control a witch slash inventor who has come up with a new broom that runs on high mileage pumpkin juice. To play, you control the hybrid and witch around bats while picking up candy corn points and pumpkins for fuel. If you're on the hunt for a simple spell, you might enjoy the little magic that Haunted Hybrid delivers.
Just because they're scary and furry doesn't mean they can't dance. If you're little candy eaters like dancing games like Dance Dance Revolution, Monsters Gone Wild lets them use the keyboard's arrow keys to match up with the on-screen arrows. With five heavy beat songs and faster pace, it's great for rapid little fingers.
Kids love matching and the classic tile matching game gets a spooky spin with Halloween Mahjong. With over 20 holiday-related tile images and a peppy soundtrack that sounds like something you'd hear at an ice-skating ring, there are multiple levels of fun here.
Truly original puzzle games are hard to come by but Halloween Pumpkins is pretty unique. Rather than merely stack colored pumpkins until three of the same color burst, you're given two pumpkins that launch from the sides of a pumpkin column. While it's double the fun with spooky tunes and occasional thunder clap, Halloween Pumpkins scoops out a refreshingly challenging adventure.
