Madfinger Games recently celebrated their 6th anniversary as a games development company.  Since their inception they have released 10 games on the App Store, including some of my favorite FPS games.  They’ve even released Shadowgun: DeadZone Game Master’s Kit on the Unity asset store, which is basically the entire Unity project for their standalone multiplayer version of Shadowgun.  This demonstrates a strong dedication to their user base, as does their efforts in making top notch mobile games.

Almost 13 iOS Games To Play On Halloween 2015

It’s that time of the year when creatures go bump in the night and devour all the excess sweets in sight.  Thankfully if you’re not into that there’s plenty to keep you busy on your iOS device.  For the first couple of years as I was doing the roundups I put together a special Halloween edition as well, but that sort of fell by the wayside.  Now it’s back, though I figured since everyone is covering the spookier side of the holiday offerings, I’d take a look at the lighter end of things.  I also tried not to make the subject matter in terms of featured creatures fairly diverse, because I’ll begrudgingly admit that Halloween is NOT zombie-centric.  Finally, you might be wondering about the title.  I wanted to get this published before Halloween, but I like the idea of 13, since that is kind of Halloween’s number.  So check back over the next couple of days and you might find an addition or two to the list.  Hope you enjoy it and find something entertaining to play over this Halloween weekend.
