So you've just finished college, and now it's time to pay off that student loan. So, what's a girl to do? Get a job managing the local undead mall of course! That's just what you'll do in Alawar Entertainment's new game Spooky Mall.
It'll be your job to manage the mall's five food stores by stocking stands, servicing customers and upgrading equipment. It won't be as easy as it sounds, though. You'll encounter many other obstacles along the way such as shoplifters, confused customers and time limits.
The casual customers in the game are ghosts, but you'll meet a variety of strange people during your shift like superheroes that graciously stock your shelves for you and clowns that keep your customers happy. Just don't let the clowns juggle the merchandise!
Spooky Mall is a quirky little game that almost anyone can appreciate. The story might not always make perfect sense, but the total bizarreness of it all will keep you laughing the whole time you're playing. It seems the undead have to eat, too, but they do their shopping at midnight.
You'll want to keep coming back over and over to play the game as there are 100 different stages to complete and numerous upgrades to purchase. Plus the bonus games are tons of fun; you'll really get a thrill out of working the store during a sale. It's like Black Friday all over again! Oh, the Terror!
You can purchase the game on the Alawar website, or you can download the free trial of the game there as well. There's really no reason not to play Spooky Mall, unless you're too scared that is. If so, then step up and grow a pair!
