Carve those pumpkins, load up on candy, and get into the spooky autumn mood with the best casual Halloween games! I tend to stay away from horror games, so if you’re like me and looking for more wholesome games that are still spectrally spooktacular, check these out! Here are my favorite short and simple Halloween games I love playing every October.
Magical Mishaps at the Magic Cat Academy 2016
Taking it back to 2016 comes a free game brought to you by the Meow-loween Team from Google Doodle. Help the little cat wizard, Momo, exorcise the ghosts haunting the Magic Cat Academy. With simple and easy to learn controls, you will quickly get in the groove by drawing shapes above the spirits’ heads to spell the specters away.
This is a personal favorite, not only for its fun factor but because I have a black cat at home too. It delights me to learn that this adorable game was inspired by one of the developer’s cats. There’s no higher honor than being immortalized in a game, and I think it’s so heartwarming to know Momo was the muse. Play Magic Cat Academy 2016 to experience a magical game that was clearly made with love.
