Ghostly Apps

Turn Halloween into a spooky-fun time with these creepy apps for your tablet.

With Halloween looming, we are anticipating a high turnout of ghosts, wizards, and witches on the streets of Kansai this month. Homes and schools are prepping for parties replete with jack-o’-lanterns, cobwebs, and scary costumes. Trick or treat? Let’s go for the treat and download these fun and spine-chilling apps.


Halloween Party

•Cost: ¥100

•What it does: Halloween Party is a fun party game meant for up to four trick-or-treaters. This game will have your little ghosts and ghouls madly tapping at the screen trying to become the Halloween Party Master. It’s got scarily cute Halloween artwork that will send your spirits soaring. Your group of monsters will play sixty-second, quick-fire rounds matching monsters to words and answering spooky trivia.
Why it’s great: It’s an ideal app for a group of kids to play during a party. It’s an incredibly easy way to bring kids together and has an educational slant, however it’s probably better for kids from 10 years old and up as the font is tricky to read. With eerie jokes, spine-chilling trivia, and creepy, fun music this app is perfect for you party.
