It isn’t just another Monday early in the morning surrounded by zombies in the metro. Today’s actual Halloween and all of that finally makes sense. Werewolves, vampires, homework, bats, zombies, tidying up, ghosts, rats, taxes, guts… Today is the day to face our inner fears by making them fun.
Most of us we aren’t kids no more, but we cannot lose Halloween spirit: we have to laugh at our daily monsters and enjoy as a kids doing it. Halloweenize yourself, that’s the treat, OK? Let us show you some Android tricks:
Let’s start by Halloweenizing your Android. The best way is by setting a wallpaper that matches Today’s festivity. We’ve discovered a really nice one developed by Pimpdroid: Free Halloween Live Wallpaper. It contains up to 16 free Halloween-related live wallpapers (there are even more in the Pro version, €1.23). It’s made up by a simple green figure set in a black background and a live scanner-effect. If you want to change theme colour or the structure (surface style) you will need to upgrade to the Pro version. In the free version you can adjust brightness, hide/show surrounding grid, choose refresh rate or hide/show structure. The live wallpaper has been optimize for a low battery consumption and proper CPU perfomance. Pimpdroid has also released another similar live wallpapers with Android figures.
According to this Halloweenizing mood, there’s a way to fully change your Android icons, dock, wallpaper and app drawer: by applying a Halloween theme to your launcher. If you’re using GO Launcher EX you can try this one. It’s set in a comic-layout in which the icons are mainly surrounded by ghosts. Its appearance is childish. However, that’s just our opinion, that’s a matter of taste.
Perhaps you feel too older to dress up as a zombie (although there isn’t age limit for that). If you want to get a smile out of your kids anyway, here you are an app to do it: ZombieBooth. Take a picture of yourself or use a photo from your gallery. Crop the photo to the face mark. And that’s it! That’s the way you look as a zombie! Tease your zombie twin, tap the screen quickly and he will try to bite your finger. Shake your device to change the zombie style. Your kids and friends will love it.
Finally, a Halloween game: Pumpkins Vs. Monsters, a puzzle game in which you have to avoid monster catching you by killing them using rows of pumpkins. Don’t let them reach you. In order to achieve it you’ll need to put three same-color pumpkins in a row and throw them to the monsters. The pumpkins are your main weapon, but since you have to wait them to appear, you have another resources to kill the monsters. You can put on their way mines and dynamite while you’re waiting for the pumpkins to show up. Although gameplay and graphics are simple, the game is challenging and high-addictive. Beat’em all!
