Application Systems’ Spookick is now available for download and purchase at the Mac Game Store (www.macgamestore.com). It requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later and costs US$1.99.
Here’s how the game is described: “In the small, dark and eerie town of Spookville, the people are being terrorised by the dead residents of 17 Chester Street. Only you can save them from the hell of haunting this Halloween by keeping the ghosts amused with the one thing they love the most – a good game of pumpkin passing. Use your bat to flip the flesh-creeping fruit over to each member of the ghostly gang and up your points by clicking on the letter-stealing spirits that help you spell out a spooky theme. Time is running out for the townsfolk of Spookville, so watch the clock as you exorcise the phantoms in this fun-filled ghostly game.”
