A Fun Change
Sometimes it's great to take a break from the serious HO/A games and just relax with an easy free flowing Match 3. This was a particularly fun one as you got to collect items to decorate your yard for Halloween by earning as many gold coins as possible within each level. Each level offered a different item to match as well as bonus' for dropping skeleton heads off the board. There were lots of other incentives as well and it definitely puts you in the mood for trick or treats, goblins, witches, pumpkins etc. that this time of year always brings. I totally absorbed myself with it all and suddenly poof it was over. I just might buy this little gem cuz you can keep going back to it when you are needing a break. It was full of new things to work towards and you could also time each level if you wanted a little more challenge. A fun game for the family or one to simply escape to on one of those dreary weekends. It will definitely cheer you up!

CUTE and FUN for all ages, even 51yr olds like myself :-)
I ALWAYS look forward to the holiday themed games, and this M3 doesn't disappoint, a MUST buy for me!!
Spooky Bonus is good for children, and the young at heart, I'll never be to old to celebrate this holiday, it's one of my favorites :-)
The game play is FUN, love the different icons on the boards, black cats, witches hats, you name it, perfect for Halloween.
AND...THANK YOU developers for giving us the option of relaxed mode, great for a relaxing M3 experience, inbetween playing more difficult games. And you can switch to timed mode, anytime before playing a board..YAY!!
You also get items you earn by playing the M3 boards, to decorate with, who doesn't like to decorate for Halloween.
The power-ups are very helpful also, and they are FUN to use, my demo time just flew by.
If you are a M3 lover, who loves a little spooky now and again, you owe it to yourself to at least try the demo, and maybe you will enjoy it as much as I did, THANKS developers, what a HOOT this little gem is :-)

Looks Great, Plays Well Too!
BASED ON DEMO
This is my reward for checking out a whole lot of spooky games in honour of Halloween. This one is the gem. A Match 3 game, its mechanics is very much the same as we?ve seen a dozen times before (more than a few dozen, actually), it?s the atmosphere that is such fun in this game.
The graphics are very cartoonish but also very nice to look at, creepiness and all. The objects in the boards are all beautifully drawn, there are loads of different ones, and great animations with some of the power ups.
The same goes with the music, nothing outa this world, but appropriately spooky. The sound effects are quite amusing.
This is one of those Match 3 games where almost every level brings you a Halloween decoration for your haunted house. And you can set the pic as your desktop wallpaper. I didn?t like the fact that you can?t pick and choose your objects or their location on your house.
I did like that you can choose timed or relaxed mode. There are different goals for each level, so you may have to get several different items to beat the level.
For example, you need to collect all the gold plates beneath each image, as with most games. But you must also get, say, 4 Gold Skulls, and 30 regular skulls. It gives a bit more variety to an otherwise run of the mill Match 3 game.
I also like having you progress shown on a map, the way build games do it.
This one is my pick of the Halloween themed games for this year.

just a few minutes of the demo were enough for me to buy the game :-). It is really relaxing playing this game after a somewhat hard day. Just fun !

Relaxing Halloween Match 3
Themed games for the holidays seem to always be awful but this is a rare gem among them! Spooky bonus brings match 3 players a delightful scary realm of witches, ghosts, bats and other things that go bump in the night and each level offers something different.
Boards range anywhere from finding 50-160 cats, bats, ghosts etc to having to get all the gold tiles to having to get rid of spider webs and blocks to having to get skulls to the bottom of the screen.
There is a relaxed mode as well as a timed. I played timed and until level 99 I did not need to replay a level but since 100 is the last level, 99 and 100 were pretty tricky to try to get 200 bats while trying to get the skulls, spider webs and concrete to move. So the relaxing version is relaxing and the timed version was really relaxing too until the last few levels. I always had enough time. Sometimes it gives 12 minutes a level! The powerups come in very handy at that point. Watch out for the glimmering items on the board, when connected in a match 3, they will refill your powerups which you get throughout the game.
You are trying to find the evil in the city and make your house look pretty at the same time by decorating with items you find or items the witch has you buy for trick or treaters.
I really had a great time playing this game. Its quite addictive with its sound effects. Great scare fest for halloween or any other time if you like this time of year and want it around more often. Kid friendly but also for adults. I gave it 4 stars because the boards do get kind of repetitive after awhile but then take a break and come back a few days later and keep having fun!
I recommend! and thank you developer who thanked me at the end of the game~!

What a cute match three game. Played the demo on relaxed so I could get a better feel for the game. There were power ups and you can purchase items to upgrade your own haunted home in Old Town. The visual was fantastic and so appropriate for a Halloween game and the music did not annoy me though I do have to admit it didn't feel spooky at all. A fun game for all ages.
