I was browsing the list of popular games that are currently available on the Kindle, and noticed that several of the old favorites are featuring Halloween editions. What a great idea to add holiday editions to the rapidly growing Kindle game collection. Hope to see some others come up as the holiday season approaches.
The original edition of Blossom is a pipe connection game where you connect a series of pipes to irrigate flowers from a watering can in the center of the grid. The Halloween edition is the same thing, but instead of irrigating flowers, you’re irrigating pumpkins with potion from a witch’s pot. Make sure you don’t leave out any flowers, I mean pumpkins, or the level won’t be complete. If you get stuck, don’t worry, there are hints available to help you out.
Futoshiki is one of the highest rated games on the Kindle. The game consists of a Sudoku grid, but with a twist. Futoshiki includes greater than and less than symbols between the numbers. Don’t let these intimidate you, they can actually be quite helpful in solving the grids. Futoshiki Halloween Edition is the same fun puzzle game, but instead of a basic grid, you’re playing in a graveyard. Watch out for the zombies lurking around!
Mahjong Solitaire is a fun, addicting tile matching game. The tiles are stacked up in stairstep fashion, and you must match the upper level tiles before revealing the ones underneath. The tiles have basic shapes and dots on them. The Mahjong Solitaire Halloween Edition has a few pumpkins, scary faces and cauldrons and more floating around. The Kindle’s black and white platform is such a natural fit for graphics like these.
Ultimate Halloween Quiz joins the collection of trivia games for Kindle. They include nature, math, literature, movies, music and more. The Halloween edition includes topics related to Halloween (obviously) that include horror movies, scary books, Halloween history, and other miscellaneous scary questions. The questions can either be answers all at once, or in rounds of 10. What a fun activity for families! A Halloween themed trivia night perhaps?
All of these games are great for all ages, and are for the most part, quite inexpensive. They include easier levels for kids and beginners, and provide a good challenge for adults. More in depth reviews coming soon on the Kindle Apps Blog.
All of these games are compatible with the newest version of the Kindle.
