Plants vs. Zombies 2
The Plants vs. Zombies 2 mobile game is like Halloween year round. But the horror-filled holiday will be celebrated with a special Lawn of Doom upgrade. Here, “players can join frighteningly fun piñata parties to win six collectible Halloween-themed Plant costumes.” The update will include Ghost Pepper, which can attack zombies but can’t be eaten by them. Also, Jack O’ Lantern spews a strong flame to do serious damage. (Both the pepper and pumpkin cost money, though.)
Quick Boy game
In the super fun Quick Boy game, you’ll save the world and enjoy Halloween to boot. Here, you’ll find new Halloween costumes, zombies that appear in the story mode, Halloween gift boxes and a special Halloween drone.
Try Toca Boo, a free game, if you want to play as a ghost. You’ll explore a house and scare the occupants, too. And in the just released Toca Life: School, out on October 29, you’ll discover witches and scarecrows — and stink bombs to throw around.
Pee Wee’s Nightmare
Have you checked out Pee-Wee’s Nightmare? It’s a Flash game right here on the Boys’ Life site. You have to guide the little guy though some devilishy difficult levels. Creepy music somehow helps you platform your way through 20 cool environments. Watch out for those spikes!
