Top 10 Halloween Games on iPhone

Best of the Halloween-themed iOS treats

For many, Halloween represents trick-or-treating, dressing up as the villain from Scream, carving ornate pumpkins, and bobbin for apples.

To iPhone game developers, however, this particular pagan festival appears to be an opportunity for some themed updates and welcome price cuts.

So, which are the best games on iPhone for Halloween?

From tower defence to match-four puzzles, baseball to twin-stick shooters, we've selected an extra scary Top 10 Halloween-themed iPhone titles, so that you can go finish that costume.

Protect your home from PopCap's onrushing hordes of zombified pole-vaulters, bucketheads, and disco dancers, by strategically planting undead-mashing flora. Supplies are limited, of course, so seeing off those pesky phantoms won’t be quite as straightforward as first thought.

Homerun Battle 3D marries perfect presentation with a faultless online matchup system to create a slugfest worthy of Babe Ruth. If you happen to hit one out of the park in an over-the-air scuffle, you can now sport a jack-o'-lantern as a symbol of victory. Enough to put off even the most composed of pitchers, Qi would imagine.

Lima Sky’s intrepid hero Doodle has been subjected to the kind of experimentation normally reserved for Mary Shelley characters, and, alas, the Doodlestein was borne. The perpetually climbing Doodler must dodge vampires, witches, and zombies, making use of the ultra-responsive tilt controls and, of course, the jet packs.

Pro Zombie Soccer swaps goals for ghouls, combining corpses and comics for lethal shooting of the footballing kind. And while it often felt like the England 2010 World Cup team resembled a pack of living dead during the summer, the staggering masses on pitch in Chillingo’s violently satisfying story are genuine zombies.

If 200 scenarios spread across 15 major campaigns aren’t sufficient to occupy your brain matter this Halloween, cross-platform strategising – v PC, Mac, and Linux gamers – brings some human challenge to proceedings. As an extra treat, Battle for Wesnoth has been updated with a special undead campaign.

Charged with keeping Chillingo's maniacal monsters at bay behind some graveyard gates, your only form of defence against the likes of Frank Stein and Chainsaw Hewitt is all-out attack. Kill enough of the critters then in the brand new Pumpkin Fever game mode, for instance, and you’ll unlock sabers and machine guns galore.

Substituting cannons and flame throwers for sunflowers and cacti, IUGO’s polished tower defence title taps into the more traditional motifs of zombie lore, namely an apocalypse, a lone survivor, and a worryingly isolated shack. Carefully place your plucky hero right next to the field guns and inflict some major damage on the evil dead.

The aim of the game in Superblox is to complete four block squares of identical colour by tilting your handset in the appropriate direction. Simples, huh? Well, no, because a host of spooky enemies have it for your fragile tetragon, and will seek, destroy, or simply implode inconveniently given half an opportunity.
