Why we love this
  1. 1This sequel to a frantic, horror-inspired zombie favorite is ideal for short bursts of action gameplay
  2. 2The first-person point of view keeps things fraught, and a newly introduced narrative adds urgency to survival
  3. 3Collect weapons parts and craft new additions to your armory over time
Score-chasing arcade game Into the Dead shifts into a story-based pilgrimage through zombie country in this good-looking sequel. Shorter, delineated levels give a greater sense of progression, and while simple to pick up, the challenge intensifies quickly. Sadly, the new narrative bent also introduces lackluster voice-acting.

Why we love this
  1. 1This ambitious adventure is the newest in the long-running Rusty Lake escape-room style series
  2. 2The striking, hand-drawn art style is an oddity in the horror gaming genre
  3. 3Puzzles are challenging but not overly difficult (tune into “Rusty Lake TV” on the old TV set for hints!)
When amnesiac detective Dale Vandermeer wakes up in a mysterious, contraption-filled room, his goal is clear: to break free and recover his memories. The Rusty Lake universe’s brand of horror is more “sinister” than “zombies and jump scares” – and the strangeness is doubled this time around, with a short film (accessible in-game) that augments the story.

Why we love this
  1. 1Play as horror icon Jason Voorhees in this cartoon-like puzzle game based on the well-known movie series
  2. 2Stalk and murder your victims through all sorts of locations, from ski resorts to high-security prisons
  3. 3Scale your gore: Go PG for an “almost family-friendly” experience, or turn up the gruesomeness in R mode
This playful take on the slasher franchise pokes fun at horror tropes. Swing your weapons (including toilet brushes and shish kabobs) about in over 100 levels’ worth of simple, grid-based gameplay. Fans of gore need not worry; it’s still grisly, in spite of the humor and cutesy cube-shaped graphics.

Why we love this
  1. 1This tense phone simulation excels at slow-building psychological horror
  2. 2Learn about and interact with numerous characters, each with their own personality and secrets
  3. 3Your ending depends on the choices you make and the relationships you develop
Through a smartphone interface, you’ll uncover aspects behind a series of teen murders – and find a surprising connection to your sister’s disappearance. The spooks ramp up quickly once you begin receiving anonymous calls and messages. The minigames may feel incongruous with the choose-your-own-adventure gameplay, but if you persist you’ll be rewarded with an engrossing story.
