It’s that time of the year when all that is dark and spooky is celebrated, and kids dress up in their weirdest best to trick or to treat. Halloween is now not only in the neighborhood but also on our devices!
Halloween, also called All Hallows’ Eve, falls on the eve of All Saints’ Day. While it has religious significance for some Christians, nowadays, it is observed mainly as a secular celebration.
Most of the game applications are getting a themed update and offering a considerable discount on Halloween-themed titles. Steam is offering up to 75% off on its spooky titles, Dead Trigger is getting its own Halloween update, and new games are being added, such as Zombiewood.
In all this spookfest, the bird-slinging franchise Rovio couldn’t be behind! It’s trick or tweet time for the Angry Birds with a new episode being introduced called “Angry Birds Seasons – Haunted Hogs.” The latest episode has 30 additional levels and is “never seen before ghost bricks”.
Added to this extravaganza, there’s also a tournament that Rovio has decided to put up. The Angry Birds Friends Halloween Tournament is held from October 29th to November 4th, featuring six new levels and demented zombie pigs. Here’s a video you can enjoy which features the “never seen before ghost bricks”.
Also, the Finnish game developer has published the first-ever gameplay footage of the upcoming Star Wars edition. The 50-second video features Luke and Leia, where the red bird tries to impress the pink bird with its lightsaber antics.
After this, the video then cuts to the red bird flinging itself towards the pigs and using its lightsaber to cut the wooden structures; it looks cool; watch the video to see for yourself!!
Before this, Rovio had published another video, a 21-second trailer that starts with the iconic Star Wars monologue, “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…” followed by a blackbird in a Jedi avatar holding a lightsaber shaped like a slingshot.
Yet another trailer shows the iconic Millennium Falcon, which might feature in the game. Getting back to the Halloween Fest, Google, in line with honoring its company tradition, had released a spooky interactive doodle on its search page.
The doodle was of a haunted mansion complete with skeletons hanging, scary monsters, and eerie sounds to add to the spookiness! Do tell us what you think about the Halloween-themed apps and which one’s your favorite in the comments below.
Now, this Angry Birds Seasons Ham’O’Ween is available online on iOS and Android.
