As the title suggests, there's a decidedly spooky theme to this arcade type game, Halloween.

On Halloween night, five children are happily having a party in their garden when in the nearby castle the ghouls awake.

In the first attack wave, witches on broomsticks fly across the screen from the castle, at various heights.

Unless fired upon by your gun, which may be moved between castle and house, the children will be picked up one at a time and carried back to the witch's lair.

Successfully destroying a witch, however, gains points and a score and high score are displayed.

When 10 witches have been obliterated, the attack is continued by devils who lance each child with their spear - very nasty!

The game progresses with the ghouls becoming more terrifying until all the children have gone, when you have the chance to play again.

There is optional use of keyboard or joystick to move and fire your gun.
