Shadowgate App Icon Halloween Adventure Game on iPadThe renowned point-and-click adventure game, Shadowgate is now re-imagined with stunning visuals, cinematic storytelling, and customizable controls and is spiced up for Halloween with the Dread Pumpkin Quest. The gameplay mechanics are now designed for touch-based gameplay for iPad users (released Oct. 22) and Android users in November.

There is the traditional game play but for Halloween the developers have made a special attraction: the Dread Pumpkin Quest.  The design of this quest is loosely based on a certain beloved classic that we all grew up watching. It is a search and find mission that requires the player to find various new items littered throughout the game, dress up appropriately and free the Dread Pumpkin.

There are four difficultly levels throughout the game so even the Dread Pumpkin quest changes from one to the next.  What works on the easy level may take additional effort on a more difficult level.

A few Tips!

To get started with the easy level, you may want to find and take the skull and key. Try to open the doors, specifically room 1.

In the anteroom use the lever on the floor to right to open the compartment and take the key.  Open room 2 (far door) to exit forward.

Then, as you open the book on the alter (don’t take the book) look and learn spell Invokan.  Hit the unique looking rock to the right of the alter.  Go to the hallway on the right and open all the doors but exit to the left hand doorway and enter the cellar.
