There’s a hair-raising app in this roundup for everybody. So, get ready to have a Franken-tastic good time with these top spooky Halloween games!
#1 – DERE EVIL EXE
AppSir Games’ Dere Evil Exe is a terrifying meta-horror pixel platformer that has been haunting the charts all year long. In the game, players must guide their hero named Knightly on an eerie journey through a pixelated world of mystery. Deadly monsters called corruptions use fear as a weapon. This challenging game is filled with plenty of scares.
Creator of the game and founder of AppSir Inc., Darius Guerrero, was inspired by the ‘Saw’ films for his games’ unique plot-twists. Dere Evil Exe is just the most recent in his horror theme series. There’s also Dere EXE, Sorority Rites, and The Last Yandere A Visual Novel.
#2 – Dream On A Journey
Dream On A Journey is nightmarish platformer by Adam Rogan of AD Designs that plays much like the indie classic Limbo. With two challenging nightmare modes that players must try to make it through: Journey and Playground. In Journey mode, you have to try to get your character through the hellish nightmare, avoiding danger and collecting keys along the way.
In the Playground mode, players have to be quick as a deadly mist is chasing you. Players have to outrun the fog to survive. It’s somewhat similar to Stephen King’s The Mist, very eerie. It’s a lot of fun to play. Also, Dream On A Journey was featured by both Apple and Google. Like Dere EXE it’s one of our All-Stars.
#3 – Halloween Smash & Run!
We all know it’s just not Halloween without pumpkins and candy corn right?! In Chris Trudeau’s Halloween Smash & Run game players have to explore a spooky graveyard as cool pumpkin characters, collect candy while trying to avoid the deadly traps and spiders that await. Test your skills and see if you can escape true evil.
FUN FACT: A Halloween poster inspired the entire game! Oh, the things you can do with Buildbox!
#4 – Spooky Mansion
Another must-play on our Halloween games list is Spooky Mansion by Adam Rogan of AD Designs. Help guide a grumpy Frankenstein through a haunted mansion with danger lurking behind every closed door. It’s a fun light-hearted game with awesome sound effects. It’s hard not to get into the Halloween spirit when you hear that evil, wicked witch laughter in Spooky Mansion.
#5 – Horror Hop
GameAnax Inc.’s Horror Hop gives Halloween mobile games an update with glowing emoticons as the main characters. Players have to guide their bright emoticon through haunted woodlands avoiding obstacles and deadly traps. Throughout the game you’ll hear bone-chilling sounds, it’s perfect for Halloween.
#6 – The Dark Forest
The Dark Forest by Primal Apps and Games asks one question, “Can you survive in the forest?” In this simple, minimalistic horror theme game, players have to tap to make their monster fly while avoiding incoming obstacles and creepy enemies. You can collect coins to help you unlock new flying monster characters. Play as a flying bat, Frankenstein head, witch, ghost, demon, and more.
#7 – Skull Sugar
Conrad Schmidt’s Skull Sugar is one of those Halloween games that you’ll find yourself playing all year long. This ghostly game transports players deep into the underworld. In the game, you have to help Skully the dangling spirit collect Sugar Skulls for the coveted ‘Day of the Dead.’ It’s no easy task. Luckily the creator, Conrad Schmidt, left a playing tip. Try to ‘stalk up’ on skulls, near the end of the last level. If you can make it that far?
#8 – Tiny Bats
If bats are more your thing, Tiny Bats by AppTout / KonigStudios is definitely for you. Players have to fly and survive in an endless forest full of portals, shooting fireballs, spikes, and other deadly obstacles. As the title suggests, your character is a tiny bat but here’s the part that’s cool. Each unlockable bat has distinct characteristics, whether its speed or control to give you that extra edge.
#9 – Dark Spirit Journey of Soul
No Halloween games roundup is complete without some ghostly adventures. Maurizio Di Giovanpaolo’s Dark Spirit Journey of Soul does just that as he takes you deep into the trenches of your inner spirit. In the game players must survive the haunting spirits within that reside in the darkness. The game has stunning hand-drawn characters and a chilling black and white minimalist ink art style that will haunt your dreams.
Happy Halloween from the team at Buildbox! 🎃
