|Campfire Legends: The Hookman – Get ready to be frightened…and entertained all at once. Just in time for Halloween, Campfire Legends: The Hookman delivers a hidden objects, point and click adventure that will keep you at the edge of your seat, and you’ll love every minute of having the daylights scared out of you. Christine and her sweetie take a short trip for a romantic getaway at her parents’ cabin in the woods. Upon their arrival they find the cabin ransacked and their belongings and other items scattered every which way.

|Plants vs. Zombies – In a war between plants and zombies, you’d imagine that the little vegetation soldiers would not have a chance. Not so, not so! Well, not necessarily so. It’s up to you. The cutest zombies you’ve ever seen are heading towards your house to invade it, and you need to mulchify, confuse and weaken them before they reach your front door. Use your arsenal of pea shooters, cherry bombs, purple devourers and more to fight the undead. Watch out for the pole vaulting zombies and do play the mini game of Zombie bowling rolling potatoes.

|Princess Isabella A Witch’s Curse – Every single room in Princess Isabella’s castle is cursed. Not only that, but also everyone in the castle has been turned into mirrors, except Princess Isabella. She was lucky enough to be out while a wrathful witch snuck in and put an evil spell on the entire château. That’s a royal pain, so now you’re on a quest to reverse this most unfortunate series of events and release your friends and family from their glass menagerie. The game features marble shooters, logic puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, adventure quests, even a quiz – the game will keep you happily occupied wandering around this enormous regal home, solving, playing and ultimately defeating the wicked witch.

|Whack The Dead (a free game) – Halloween is one of those holidays that I get really excited about, even though I now live in France where no one knows quite how to celebrate it like Americans do. That’s okay, though, because I’ll simply celebrate it with Halloween-themed games. Why not fête this year by whacking the dead? C’mon, it’s fun. This tiny, silly game on your desktop is perfect for a one minute game play of not only whacking zombies with shovels, but also with revolvers, shotguns and grenades. Beat my score of 1001! I dare you. Download it|
|Sweetopia – What is Halloween without candy? No candy corn, mini Snickers, cute bags of M&Ms? Halloween is not Halloween without candy, so I’ve included this excellent orb shooter that I’d say is one of the top five of its genre. Consider it a cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Zuma. Kate Gainsborough is re-opening her grandfather’s old candy factory, but runs into problems. One disturbing hurdle is the two sherbet sizzle candies if they should collide will blow up the building and destroy all of Kate’s hard work. Your job is to keep these two orbs away from each other by matching three or more like color candies to pop them with sphere launchers. Download it|
