Halloween is quickly approaching, and it’s likely that many of your favorite apps have been updated with content to celebrate this spooky time of year. Here’s a look at some of the frightening new apps and content updates you can now download on your mobile devices. Happy Halloween!
Airport Scanner developer Kedlin, in association with Pocket Gems Publishing, has announced the release of Meter Maid City on iOS devices. The game asks players to take on the role of a rookie parking enforcement officer, as they place tickets on vehicles, or even have them towed to the impound lot. The game is about more than simply ticketing illegal parkers, however, as players will need to avoid traffic, enraged citizens and more while on duty.
Game developer and publisher Ninja Kiwi has announced the launch of SAS: Zombie Assault 4 on iOS and Android devices. The latest installment in the zombie shooter franchise introduces a new class system, and offers what Ninja Kiwi calls “an unprecedented level” of character customization to players. The game takes players to the distant future, to a planet overrun by a virus outbreak. Players can experience the game through single-player story missions, or join forces with others in the up-to-four-player multiplayer mode.
In early September 2014, game developer and publisher Zynga released a new and improved version of Zynga Poker on mobile devices. The game was completely redesigned with a modern, “sophisticated” look, better animations and improved sound effects. The app offered a new table design with all new cards and a smarter betting system, all in an effort to better mimic the real-life experience of playing Texas Hold ‘Em with others.
While the company’s intentions were good, player feedback has been mixed. While some users liked the game’s improvements, others preferred the original style of play. In an effort to please as many players as possible, Zynga has announced the upcoming launch of Zynga Poker Classic, the original game, which will return to mobile platforms later this year.
Just a few weeks after releasing Pokemon TCG Online on iPad, The Pokemon Company has released another new mobile app in the extremely popular universe of these lovable critters: Camp Pokemon. The entertainment app is categorized as being made for ages 6-8, and takes players to an island filled with Pokemon-themed activities.
2K has today announced the launch of NHL 2K on mobile devices. The game was developed by Visual Concepts, a 2K studio, in partnership with Virtuos, and introduces players to multiple gameplay modes, including a new My Career mode for shaping and living the career of a custom hockey player (this mode lasts multiple seasons). Another new mode, Mini Rink, allows players to compete in “competitive and fast-paced” three-on-three matches.
Some magic has come to the world of EA’s The Sims FreePlay on mobile, as this year’s Halloween update is now available to download on iOS, Android and Amazon devices. This update comes along with a new store, new pets and new hobbies for players to enjoy during this spookiest time of the year. There’s even a new storyline here, as players must earn the help of Sim Town’s resident wizard, who will help them save the neighborhood from “impending doom.”
Zero-trace camera and photo platform Hidely has launched on iOS devices, giving users access to a secret gallery and secure camera for protecting their private photos. Photos taken with the app, or imported into the Hidely gallery, are protected via double encryption technology, and users must enter a passcode before ever entering the app.
