Each year at this time, we gather around carving pumpkins, collecting candy, and choosing our costumes. Halloween is almost here and what better way to celebrate it than with a spooky Halloween game to keep you or your child busy.
Halloween Match is a fun, simple, and, of course, easy to play match 3 game. Similar to the developers previous release, Breakfast Saga, instead of arranging different types of breakfast treats to create combinations of three or more, you are playing with spooky bats, skulls, pumpkins, spiderwebs and even Dracula himself makes an appearance. Tiles may be swapped vertically, diagonally, and horizontally, to achieve the desired effect but as of now the only mode of play is survival mode. Here you have a set amount of time with which to make as many matches as you can.
As with the prior match games, there are controls to pause, restart, and adjust the volume level. Players must also avoid obstacles that appear such as the white halos that block your view when trying to swap tiles. They last for only a short time but prevent you from making important moves thereby losing time. To help you clear the board, there are bombs that do appear from time to time.
This is a fun little game that everyone can enjoy. Nothing like having a Halloween theme to help jumpstart the festivities. It offers a smooth interface, is entertaining, is great for passing the time, and is $0.99 for BlackBerry 10.
