"Rock the nurses to death."

Warning: Playing the Easy Mode is strongly recommended.

"Known only to a select few, on Halloween Night opens a portal to the realm of the dead. Creatures of chaos, cursed souls and nightmarish abominations step inside our world and wander in search of prey, blending in the crowds of costumed kids and grown-ups.
On that night, a group of gifted, brave elementary students set off on a wild hunt. Speeding through every corner of the city, they must find and banish hordes of malevolent beings before the day breaks."


Halloween Wars is a fresh, fast-paced arcade-style RPG that parodies many elements of horror fiction.

Features
-Pick your favorite character to fight the creatures of the night in 5 different stages.
-Collect and use tasty candies to create offensive or defensive power ups in battle, or turn them into Score points to buy upgrades.
-Enemy strength increases as you defeat bosses for a constant rise in challenge.
-Multiple scrolling backgrounds, cutscenes and animated custom sprites bring the game's world to life.
-Over 700 custom images including funny, spooky monsters and more.
-Secret enemies and cheat codes to find.
-Average length: 1 to 3 hours depending on your skill and the difficulty setting.

-A Series of Unfortunate Events

Cheat Codes and Potential Prequel

Leaves have already begun to turn yellow and the cold is creeping in.
Soon, October will be upon us. The month of Halloween, one of the funnest holiday of the year :)

I want to share here the cheat codes that can be found in the game.
These cheats consist of three numbers that must be entered when you see the Title Screen and will only take effect when playing the Normal Mode.

Triple Experience Mode: Type "555" at the Title Screen to receive 3 times the Experience from enemies.

Triple Score Mode: Type "666" at the Title Screen to receive 3 times the Score from the candies you don't eat.

Final Stage: Type "123" at the Title Screen to skip the first 4 stages and begin with a bonus 50,000 Score.

Gallery: Type "987" at the Title Screen to view the art from cutscenes.

While the Normal Mode is much more difficult than the Easy Mode, using these cheats may make the game more enjoyable.

Halloween Wars has its flaws but I am very fond of its core concept, its setting and, most of all, its characters.
In the last few months I've been writing down ideas and drawing for a potential prequel to this game.
It is too soon to reveal anything about it, but I'm steadily making progress on this new project and hope to be able to share more information about it before long.

In any case, I want to wish a happy upcoming Halloween to everyone. Make sure to avoid the cold and flu!

Indeed the levels are linear, having the player literally run on rails... Even though that was the original intent, I wondered if the random monster and candy encounters would counter the linearity enough to make the levels enjoyable...

Thank you for your comment!
i think game is good. if random system of enemy spawns not ruin fun of game and level basic ideas...some exploration levels extra with these nice characters in more open spaces - standard rm view but another type of gameplay as extra type of levels in game - could make more non linear and make atmosphere of game more deep. anyway i still think this is nice game.
