[prMac.com] Warsaw, Poland - With Halloween being just behind the corner Apple's Appstore is crawling with hundreds of Halloween applications for iPhone and iPod Touch devices. Those apps range from spooky sound players, virtual pumpkin carving tools, scary prank toys to Halloween themed games. Most of them are really fun to play and are great time killers while waiting for our favorite holiday.
One of these games - 'Halloween Mayhem' just got released on iTunes by a European company - 'ofijo'.
'Halloween Mayhem' is a small but very funny and addictive game in which your goal is to crush with your finger as many skeletons as you can before they reach the Halloween Pumpkin. The task sounds simple enough but the sheer number of skeletons that you need to deal with and the fact that they act quite intelligently for a pile of bones makes your job quite difficult.
Here is some additional information about the game from the developers:
It is Halloween, year 2009. You are the very proud owner of the award winning, biggest pumpkin in town. You keep that glorious monster of a pumpkin in your backyard, watching over it from your porch, waiting for the sun to hide behind the horizon. Suddenly you hear a macabre noise coming from behind the hedge - the sound of dozens of bones rattling against each other. Something has awaken and now it's after your beloved pumpkin! You cannot let anything happen to it!
Press and hold your finger over incoming skeletons to crush them. Scare them and make them flee with a swipe of your finger. Destroy grouped skeletons to maximize your efficiency. Your goal is to crush as many as you can before they reach the pumpkin. Save The Pumpkin, Save The Halloween!
