Now, that's a scary pumpkin! If you're on the East Coast of the U.S., you might already have kids knocking at your door, donned in the goofiest and most garish costumes you've ever seen. For those out west, you still have some time to throw those miniature bags of candy together. But when it comes time to wait between the hordes of tots in totally awesome outfits, you'll need something to do.
That said, we've gathered the top five spooky social games to play this Halloween night. We generally stuck to new releases this year that specifically revolve around popular Halloween themes and tropes. So, expect a few zombie games--everybody is doing it these days. Without further delay, here are our Top Five Spooky Social Games for this Halloween:
Zombie Misfits This interesting, gory take on tower defense--an already under-served genre on Facebook--by Nexon and Antic Entertainment is a smoothly animated and one of the more robust games we've seen on the platform recently. With a number of unique, upgradable defense units with lively animations and personalities you'd find in any given Cartoon Network show, Zombie Misfits delivers the scratch for your Halloween itch.
Pioneer Trail: Ghost Town Sure, this Zynga expansion is not a Halloween game at heart, but the Ghost Town feature is certainly content enough to qualify as its own Halloween game. Ghost Town is essentially like the original expansion content, but within one giant map with an large amount of quests. Players use their friends to navigate the haunted town and uncover just what happened, encountering some of the most gruesome critters ever seen in FrontierVi--err, Pioneer Trail.
Dexter Slice of Life Seriously, is there anything more scary than a serial killer movie? (Come to think of it, a hidden footage movie from the perspective of one would be pretty terrifying.) A recurring serial killer TV show, that's what. Sure, some of the bite goes away when you end of rooting for the guy, and perhaps even more so when you're in control. But there's still something that scares us about ourselves when we end up deciding to allow Dexter's Dark Passenger to take control in EckoCode's Facebook game.
Zombie Lane Another zombie game? Yes, another zombie game--it's Halloween, people. This game by Digital Chocolate has players literally living in a zombie-invested world in protest of the encroaching hordes. You'll do normal things like farm your garden and decorate your home, all the while taking a shotgun to nearby walking dead. There's something about the game's ability to make living in a zombified world normal that's ... admirable.
Bubble Witch Saga This final selection by King.com is definitely the most tame, and you might need something to break the tension after romping around as a serial killer tonight. A fun, Halloween-like take on the popular bubble-bursting genre, Bubble Witch Saga has players matching similarly colored bubbles to fill a cauldron with enough magical ingredients to impress the coven that spectates. Not everything about Halloween has to be terrifying, you know.
