Bones of Halloween from Ratalaika Games and Petite Games is an arena-style first-person shooter where you must defeat the evil pumpkin skeletons. You wake up in a dark forest and quickly realize that the aforementioned pumpkin skeletons are hunting you down! You’ll have to avoid them and dodge their attacks as you try to defeat them as fast as possible, as you collect Fortune Cards that can introduce random good or bad effects during your run.

There are two options for playing the game: Survival Modes and Challenges. Survival Modes is plural because it includes five different options: Classic Mode, Arcade Mode, Hardcore Mode, Money Dripper, and Explosive Mode. In Classic Mode, you can collect money, purchase weapons and obtain Fortune Cards. In Arcade Mode, weapons are free, and there are no Fortune Cards. For Hardcore Mode, enemies will be harder to beat, but Fortune Cards will be available. In Money Dripper, you get more money, but you’re constantly losing it, so you must spend it as soon as possible. The last one is Explosive Mode, in which you’ll have a mighty rocket launcher to make enemies go boom.


In Challenges, you’ll have to complete a series of objectives after selecting the Easy, Medium, Hard, and Extreme difficulty settings. Each of said difficulty settings will have different ones to work on based on what you can do in the Survival Modes. These include things such as defeating 5 enemies in Classic Mode, unlocking a Fortune Card, finding an Ammo Box in Money Dripper Mode, or blowing up 10 enemies in Explosive Mode. The controls are simple since you’ll move your character with the left analog stick as you aim and look around with the right one. You can shoot with the R2 button and can switch between weapons by using the L1 and R1 buttons as soon as you obtain a second weapon.
