Halloween is just around the corner, and if you’re like us, then you probably can’t wait to get spooked! There’s no need to wait around for the horror marathons to start – you can get started with the scares by playing some of these excellent horror games on your phone!
Games on mobile sure have come a long way. Remember when we used to play Snake, and the only thing scary about the games we played on our phones was the fact that we never really understood what those creatures in Space Impact were? Well, thanks to the advances in mobile computing, and the fact that so many people prefer to play on their mobiles now, we can expect to see some truly amazing games on our smartphones – yes, even horror. Gaming Realms, the company running Spin Genie, has said that growth in mobile internet is one of the most powerful trends in the internet landscape and that the global smartphone and tablet install base exceeded the PC install base during 2013. Standards for mobile games have become much higher, and now we have games like the ones listed below:
Bloody Mary Ghost Adventure
This urban legend is a staple of Halloween sleepovers, and Bloody Mary Ghost Adventure truly sets the scene for a unique mobile horror experience. It’s said to have elements of “real paranormal scanning” and could end up invoking Bloody Mary herself!
With the latest season of The Walking Dead having just aired, it seems timely to get started on some zombie gaming goodness! The Hunting is a three-part immersive, interactive zombie movie app claiming to be the world’s first, shot entirely with an iPhone. It’s an amazing attempt and is one of the better indie games out there.
Dark Meadow: The Pact
If you’re a true horror fan, you’ve probably already tried Dark Meadow: The Pact. It’s already been called one of the best games to hit the App stores in recent memory, and it’s a brilliant masterpiece that shows just what mobile gaming is capable of accomplishing.
