TrickyHalloween ShooterAfter a long night of haunting and spooking, there's nothing that your average vampire/mummy/witch likes more than going home to the comfort of their own coffin/sarcophagus/cauldron. Wouldn't ya know it though? It seems that some sort of anti-monster conspiracy has constructed all manner of girders and obstacles to prevent their homecoming. In Halloween Shooter, a physics puzzler by GameShot, it's up to the player to blast all the creatures to their proper home for a good day's sleep.

Very polished in presentation, Halloween Shooter has a cool retro aesthetic and some well-designed set pieces. The size of the game window does limit some of the shots you'd like to make, which is a flaw. Also, bits of the game do feel a little generic: one might think that the only thing needed to make Thanksgiving Shooter or Chanukah Shooter would be a change in sprites. That said, it's hard to dislike any game that lets you knock over Frankenstein with a well-aimed Dracula. It's a treat as good as a full-sized Snickers.

I dont understand why this has got such a low rating. its one of the most entertaining skill games i've seen in a while. Its difficult, but do-able!

Just as an off topic comment: I like these shorter reviews more. I mean, shorter but more direct to the point! It used to be like this a few years ago.

Nothing against long reviews, but when 20% of it is unrelated to the game in question it becomes a tiresome reading. Even when it's funny!

Is anyone else having trouble with the link? I'm on Google Chrome, and after the ad, I'm just staring at a black screen.

[I'm not having any issues with Chrome 15.0.874.106, Flash Player 11.0.1.152, on Mac OS X. Try updating Chrome, and if that doesn't work try emptying your browser cache and reload the page. -Jay]
