Link Dump Fridays

DoraHalloween is just around the corner, and this week's Link Dump Friday serves up three seasonal games that are juuuuuuuust a little bit creepy without actually being scary, and a whole bunch of stuffed animals to cuddle up with in case they freak you out anyway.

  • Monster ManorMonster Manor - Ain't much spooky or even spoopy about this charming little Halloween advergame where you play a series of reverse hidden-object scenes, figuring out where each item in your inventory belongs on the screen before you. Minus some unintuitive object placement and the misplacement penalties, but it's got a great style and charm for Halloweenies looking for something seasonal without much scare.
  • PlushPlush - You can't save in this free version of redheadgames' charming physics puzzle, but that's just fine. The goal is to rearrange each stuffed toy on the bed so it's happy before you can sleep, but the catch is that certain toys have different specifications, such as only being near another type of toy, or not having anything around it at all. It's a little slow to escalate, and the physics can feel overly fiddly at times, but it's just the ticket if you want something simple and cuddly rather than demanding.
  • Zombie Goes UpZombie Goes Up - Neutronized delivers a simple yet ghoulishly cute arcade game about guiding a zombie around hazards as it tunnels up from its grave to the surface where luscious brains await. Man, if this is the sort of thing a zombie goes through to finally claw its way out of the soil, it almost makes you feel bad for immediately double-tapping them and sending them back down. Almost.
  • Vortex Point 3Vortex Point 3 - Blink and you'll miss the third installment in Carmel Games's point-and-click adventure game series, but any excuse to solve a mystery, even an easy one, is a good excuse. When people begin spreading rumours about a monster in the local lake, you'll need a cheeseburger, a clogged toilet, and an enormous fish to get to the bottom of things. Though a little too short and easy, the game features logical puzzles and the quirky sense of humour you've come to expect... just not a lot of bells and whistles.

Monster Manor has an annoying habit of starting the clock while the Restart countdown is going.

In Monster Manor room 2, where the HECK does the

flashlight

go?

So apparently

the flashlight goes on the owl.

This is frustrating, because I had tried that spot several times. The placement was rather picky.
