Halloween App(s) of the Week: Dexter Slice and more

Dexter Slice

Developers really embraced Halloween this year by releasing a variety of new apps and app updates, but unfortunately two anticipated horror titles did not make it to the App Store in time for October 31st. As we mentioned last week, Scott Cawthon's Five Nights at Freddy's spin-off, Sister Location was delayed due to it being too mature, and the 80's inspired slasher puzzle game Slayaway Camp is still waiting for its App Store debut. The good news is that both games are currently available on other platforms. Cawthon is releasing an unofficial mature version of Sister Location in chapters to Game Jolt, and Slayaway Camp is currently available on Steam.

Here are some games that did make their way to the App Store in time for Halloween.
