Disney Magic Kingdoms

Every October we normally look at the most interesting Halloween apps each week, but due to outside circumstances we missed the beginning of the Halloween season. In an effort to catch up, here are a few spooky apps to help you have a scary and fun October.

Return of the Zombie King ($2.99) Zombie King is a classic platformer where you can upgrade your undead king by collecting his body parts. You begin the game as a "sad bag of bones" and upgrade your way through over 100 Levels across 4 environments. The game supports all devices running OS 5.1.1 or later, and it promises tons of upgrades.

Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat (unknown) Developer Layton Hawkes, formerly of Halfbrick Studios, has released a trailer to the sequel of his popular puzzle game, Puzzlepops!. The follow-up has a Halloween theme where players must slide candy around to make spooky lollipops. Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat has some new tricks for fans of the original, and promises to be a fun and challenging puzzler for new players too. The sequel will land on the App Store on October 20th, but for now you can download the original by hitting the link above.
