Spooky Bonus is out now!

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

I’m pleased to announce that our latest and best match-3 game is now out for PC/Mac. It’s called Spooky Bonus and you can download it here.

It’s a Halloween-themed match-3 game in which you find and buy spooky items to decorate your house with and those items have a direct effect upon gameplay.

So far it’s had a really great reception with a 5 star rating everywhere it’s on sale and has been doing well in various portal bestseller charts. People have gone as far as to say it’s “a perfect” or “the best” match-3 game :-O Wow.

The graphics look really good and the musician also did a great job. I spent a lot of time getting the sound effects and particle effects for the bonus items just right as well and a lot of people seem to be noticing that. Lemon Moose Games also helped with some of the programming including the new powerups and the house decoration screen.

So far I’m very pleased with the game’s launch on my site and other portals and it’s on track to be my best-selling game ever!

Please take a look and tell your friends and family who might be interested, thanks!
