Halloween Heist

  • Generic Company Place Holder Halloween Heist

Want a simple little game to waste time while you're waiting for the doorbell to ring this Halloween? You could do worse than Halloween Heist. This freebie is a fast-paced Pacman-like arcade game. The graphics are simple, and the music and sounds effects are too.

In Halloween Heist you control your pumpkin-headed scarecrow by clicking your arrow keys. You'll need to collect Jack-o-Lanterns and avoid ghosts, spiders, and other monsters. One really annoying thing: The game does not save your progress, so you continually need to start back at the first level.

Note: Though Halloween Heist was written for Windows XP and earlier OSes, it runs fine on Windows 7.
