Oct. 31st is quickly approaching, and with it, some of the best horror-themed games on the market. Don’t bother with bobbing for apples, as these titles will fascinate and provide enough ghoulish entertainment for the whole family.

Trains vs. Zombies

“Trains vs. Zombies 2,” a standalone game in which intrepid train operators must navigate the zombie-ridden city and carry a load of passengers to safety. Featuring five scenarios of frightful fun, this chilling challenge does not require Train Simulator 2013 in order to play.

Here’s the story: New York City has been overrun by toxic slime, turning normal humans into mindless zombie-like creatures, and it’s your job to rescue passengers from the Halloween nightmare that is taking over the Big Apple. With everything not quite as it seems, be careful who you let on your train as anyone caught in the zombie’s slime is instantly turned into a ghastly ghoul. Abandoned trains block your escape route and the zombies are causing havoc ahead of you, but a few broken rails shouldn’t stop you ridding the City of the green monsters-or will they?

As night falls, the zombies become more devilish and help is needed to restore calm to the City. As you find ways to rid the city of the evil zombies, there are still plenty of surprises in store before reaching the safety of Penn Station. Are you ready to save the world one platform at time?

 “Trains vs. Zombies” is available as a Stream download. For more information, visit railsimulator.com

The Grinns Tale from Nexon

Platform: Browser

Genre: Role-Playing / Adventure / City Building

Price: Free

The Grinns Tale is the next great game from Nexon, and it’s a rare breed of “social” game that has a story and doesn’t really make you do “social” things. The game is a mix of RPG, adventure and city-builder, and the fun art style makes it a great fit for Halloween articles. If that’s not enough, Nexon is also adding some Halloween-specific costumes this week; I’ll send news about those your way on Thursday. (that’s my current character above… isn’t he awesome with his mustache?)

The game is currently in open beta on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thegrinns) and Kongregate (http://www.kongregate.com/games/nexontgt/the-grinns-tale), and will be launching soon, for free!
