We're approaching that spooky season, and what better way to get into the spirit (ghostly or otherwise) than by playing a Halloween game full of witches, mummies, ghosts, jack-o'-lanterns, and broomsticks!? "Halloween Drops" is a recent release from Bullbitz, and is available now for just 99 cents.

In this game, you swap and swipe Halloween tiles to line up three of the same images. Obstacles can appear in the form of brooms and crates, which can only be cleared if an adjacent match-up of 3 tiles is found, or if you've found a "Power Up." You get a Power Up by matching four tiles in a row.

Some items are trapped behind a web; you can't swap those tiles. They can be cleared if you match two other adjacent tiles with the image behind the web.

There are intriguing features, like firecracker "bombs" to be defused, bats that have to be removed, and mystery flasks. See more about those on the game's Amazon page.

As we've seen with other Bullbitz games, the app is generously featured with 300 levels, five difficulty modes, 15 power up combinations, and enough special obstacles and power-ups to keep the game challenging and interesting to play.

"Best new thing yet!! There is a timed piece you have to get or it turns solid! Just when I thought match 3 games could not get better! I am so happy to have a new twist in this style of game. Keeping the traditional power-ups and adding the timers creates a new gaming experience! LOVE LOVE LOVE QUADRUPLE LOVE this game for Halloween. Still great for kids and my all time favourite: NO IAPs EVER!! Midnight App Smith, you have outdone yourself again!!" -- Amazon reviewer
