Island Paradise: Celebrate Halloween in tropical island style

Island Paradise Halloween
Island Paradise is one of the original island-themed games, and Meteor Games is not going to let Halloween pass them by without decking out the game for the holiday. Players who enjoy Island Paradise will be happy to see a slew of fun celebrations going on, starting with a new Trick or Treat game. If you log in right now, you'll be granted a Jack-O-Lantern in your gift box that you can place anywhere on your island. If you click it, you'll see the screen above that tells you how many of each treat you have collected. Treats are collected by clicking on your friend's Halloween pumpkins in their islands. This is all fine and dandy, unless your friends no longer play Island Paradise. If that's the case, you'll have a hard time collecting treats.

Another neat addition is the new scary Haunted Barn. If you upgrade your barn to the maximum size, it will turn into a Haunted Barn which looks nice and creepy for the holiday. Buying a barn costs only 500 coins, but you'll have to ask friends for materials several times in order to upgrade the barn to the maximum size.
Of course, Halloween in a Facebook game wouldn't be complete without tons of decorations. The Island Paradise store currently has many different decorations to celebrate the spooky holiday, including the following new items:

Skeletal Chicken
Black Cat
Cursed Apple Tree
Blood Orange Tree
Gothic Fence
Gothic Post
Owl Tree
Flying Witch Tree

Since Island Paradise is really a farming game with an island theme, there are also Halloween crops that you can plant. The pumpkin crop is pretty self explanatory, and will let you grow your own pumpkin patch. More interestingly, the Zombie Attack crop allows you to plant brains, which end up spawning zombies after 12 hours that give you out brains for treats. This is a pretty neat concept that we haven't seen yet, and we like it!

Are these decorations spooky enough? What else do you hope to see before Halloween?
