Welcome to our latest apps and games roundup! It’s Halloween season, so we’ve picked a couple of spooky apps to get you in the mood – alongside a retro pinball game, insult simulator and more. Read on for details!
Price: FREE ($1.99/£1.49 for Pro) • Version: 1.0.1 • Size: 118 MB
From the makers of the excellent ball-bouncing Smash Hit and car driving time-travel fest Does Not Commute comes a new take on an old arcade classic. PinOut! is pinball reinvented, an endless flipper of sorts in which you race against time to climb your way through a series of neon pinball tables. With awesome retro graphics and matching audio, this is one addictive ball game.
Price: FREE • Version: 1.0 • Size: 72.4 MB
This new alarm clock app rewards you for getting up on time with collectible stickers and animations. It’s a cute, colorful alternative to the standard iOS alarms and its system of achievements might just incentivize you to avoid that snooze button!
The Forgotten Room
Price: $1.99/£1.49 • Version: 1.0.1 • Size: 439 MB
It’s the spookiest time of year, so why not get stuck into a nice scary mystery puzzler? Explore a creepy house as a paranormal investigator, using the in-game camera to keep track of clues as you try to solve the case of the missing Evelyn Bright.
Price: $1.99/£1.49 • Version: 1.0 • Size: 85.5 MB
If you’re hosting a Halloween party this year, look no further than TaoMix to supply customizable soundscapes to create a spooky atmosphere. Choose from a range of scary noises, and throw your own voice into the mix (complete with filters) for a personal touch. See our review of TaoMix 2 for an idea of how it works!
Oh… Sir! The Insult Simulator
Price: $1.99/£1.49 • Version: 1.0 • Size: 370 MB
Oh…Sir! is an often hilarious duel of wits, in which opponents craft insults to hurl at one another. With online and local multiplayer, plus a “loner” mode in which you can insult the computer, this is a refreshingly bizarre combination of sentence-building, fighting games, and Monty Python humor.
Toca Life: Farm
Price: $2.99/£2.49 • Version: 1.0 • Size: 237 MB
Toca Boca’s superb range of educations apps for kids expands to cover a new setting. We’ll let them explain: “Work and play the farmer’s way! Milk your cow, gather eggs from your hens and raise your crops. Have a picnic, play the fiddle and hit the hay!”
