Traditionally, Halloween stands for fear, spookiness, ghost and ghouls and on Halloween night people try to test the fear factor by organizing scary games and getting up in spooky costumes. However, in recent times, the age-old traditions of Halloween games have shifted from party games to online games and people in general, love playing Halloween online games with their friends and family.
Seeing the addiction of the internet among people, it is not surprising that online games have completely taken over home games. Everyone finds it less cumbersome to organize these games physically when a good time can be had at the click of a mouse. Halloween's popularity has spilled over to online games with a vengeance and children and adults alike enjoy staying up playing games on the net.
A plethora of online Halloween games are available and most offer the usual jigsaws, puzzles and memory games. Some are specifically designed for pre-school kids and are bright colored to attract the children's attention. These may include, scissor crafts, jigsaw puzzles, story boards which are all related to the theme of Halloween.
A large assortment of links and free games suitable for children are readily accessed online. Interactive games for both adults and children are all over the net. Some may have to be downloaded for a small fee while others can be played for free.
For those who are raring for a 'spooky' time, there are endless games to delight even the 'darkest' of hearts! Games like Super Mario Halloween, Bashing Pumpkins, Halloween Pumpkins, Kill the Witches and Grave Robber are only some of the popular games to send a delicious shiver down your spell.
Children find Halloween Pumpkins an awesome game because they get to shoot all the ghouls and ghosts before they get you and you have to really fast to shoot. Zombie Infection is not for the youngger players. Girls specifically can enjoy dressing up in the scariest costumes in the Dress Up game. Smaller children can enjoy Feed the Hungry Ghost while older ones will probably freak out on Halloween Hangman.
Headless Havoc, Tomb Chess, Phantom Mansion Red, Hidden Zombie and Revenge of the Stick – the names of these games are evocative enough to admit a spine-chilling thrill on Halloween night. The Ghoul Academy recreates the classroom atmosphere where the classroom has to be protected, the things collected while simultaneously zapping the baddies.
On a lighter note, there is the Halloween Carver which lets you personalize a greeting for Halloween and send it to your friends and family. Your very own Jack-O -Lantern can be carved and a message written. It is good fun and a less scary way of getting into the festive spirit. In the true spirit of Halloween, many online gaming sites offer 'trips' at the end of successfully playing 'tricky' games. The games may range from really scary to outright silly.
So, all you're would-be ghouls and ghosts', dress up in your scariest costumes and get set to test your mettle against real online witches and spooks on the dark, dark night of Halloween!
