With Halloween coming up so quickly we decided to treat you to a little bit of fun with a Halloween themed round up for this week! So, let's hit the break and take a look at some of our favorite Halloween flavored apps!
Sean Brunett - Classic Horror Movie Ringtones ($1.65)
It’s Halloween time and what better way to get in the spirit than to put scary ringtones on your phone. With this app, you can easily set your ringtone to have the sound of one your favorite classic horror films. The films included are: A Nightmare on Elm Street, Dawn of the Dead, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Hellraiser, Jaws, Phantasm, Poltergeist, Pyscho, Scanners, Scream, The Exorcist, The Fog, The Omen and The Shining. It should be noted that the Friday the 13th ringtone is the theme music and not the frightening sounds heard when Jason is stalking. To set the ringtones, simply open the app, press the theme you want in order to hear a preview. Then, long-press to either set as a ringtone or notification. You’ll certainly be scaring people with this app, particularly when you’re watching scary movies in the dark. [Market Link]
Anndrew Vacca - Bubble Blast Halloween (Free)
Bubble Blast is one of the most frustrating games I have ever played, but that's part of its charm. You get a set number of "touches" and within that number you have to pop all of the bubbles on the screen. Sounds easy? Well it's not. The Halloween theme ups the ante and replaces bubbles with scary characters including skeletons, jack-o-lanterns, and other traditional ghouls. Their carved faces are only there to mock you when you've spent the past hour on a level and cannot figure out how to move forward. Or maybe that's just my interpretation. [Market Link]
Jerry Hildenbrand - Creature Lite Live Wallpaper (Free, $0.99)
What's more Halloweeny than weird, creepy, organic eyeballs in places they shouldn't be? Creature Live Wallpaper does exactly that -- places disembodied (and totally yukky) eyeballs on the screen of your Android phone or tablet. They blink, they dilate, and they twitch. The full version ($0.99) has a few options -- like changing the eye and skin color to look more human (and doubling the gross factor), and has a setting for shadows and "breathing" motion of the skin itself. Both the full and free version have a frame-rate limit setting to be kind on your battery if needed. If you love Halloween (and who doesn't?), and have a phone running Android 2.1 or higher that can use Live Wallpapers, grab it and check it out. [Market Link]
Chris Parsons - Halloween Slots (Free)
I always used to love playing slot games before I was old enough to gamble, so I always like to have one or two of the better ones installed on my device to waste some time. Keeping in line with the Halloween theme here -- Halloween Slots is a free slots game available in the Android Market. Take a spin, hear some spooky sounds and if ya get three pumpkins in a row -- Jackpot! [Market Link]
Richard Devine - Carnival of Horrors (Free)
So it's halloween, but that doesn't mean everything has to scare the living daylights out of you. Carnival of Horrors is a tower defence game that if you've played Plants v Zombies, you'll feel right at home with. Instead of plants, you use things like batteries and tesla coils to zap the ghosts that have overrun the carnival.
It's not too heavy, but like all tower defence games I can't seem to put it down. The graphics have a real nice cartoony look to them, and the sound effects are spooky, but not scary. All in all a fun little game for our halloween theme, and best of all it's currently free, so why not give it a try. [Market Link]
