Reviewed by Philip Chan

Is Halloween your favorite time of the year? Looking for a game that can cure your fix of all things spooky? Then the Dead By Halloween app from developer Joan Roca is just the app for you! It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad, and runs on iOS 3.2 or later.


The Dead By Halloween app is similar to other popular building apps out in the market today in the sense that you get to create your own town the way you like to. Instead of normal human inhabitants, you will instead have goblins, mad scientists, vampires, werewolves and other frightening creatures employed and dwelling in your town. You can utilize various sources such as bones, brains, candles, and coffins to create numerous kinds of buildings such as a Mad Scientist’s Lab, a Werewolf Lair, and a Vampire Lab. You can also make candy to offer to the kids that come by your town during the night hours.

The twist is this: You get to control when it will be daytime hours and night time hours in your town. During daytime hours your town and everyone living in it will seem normal. Yet, when night time comes around, mysterious things begin to happen such as tourists disappearing and so on.

Appearance and Layout:

The overall appearance of Dead By Halloween is pretty well done.  With Halloween inspired graphics and background theme, users will get into the Halloween type of mood no matter what time of the year it is. Orange, black, purple and green color schemes dominate the images in this app, and detailed miniature town buildings, inhabitants, visitors, and materials all enhance the game play. To be able to adjust the hours of your town and see the changes that can take place is also another nice plus.


Since Dead By Halloween is offered for $1.99, it does not rank as an inexpensive app since most game apps these days are either offered for free or for 99 cents at most. There are several building type game app such as this one that are offered for free, so some users might be put off a bit by the price. However, the concept and theme that it offers is unique, and the actual building game play is a bit more detailed than other popular building type game apps in the market today. For those who have a fascination with goblins, cauldrons, and all things spooky, then this app will be a better suit for you.
