What with it being Halloweek and everything, it would be wrong to not find some spooky Apps to make you literally crap your pants with feces. First up is Babaroga Eats Children, a game that does exactly what it says on the tin by letting you... eat children.
Cast firmly into the role of the baddie, players step into the filthy shoes of Babaroga, a nasty old woman with a penchant for plump young kiddies. Unfortunately, her security isn't very good, and the children are escaping into the surrounding swamp. It's up to Babaroga to jump from lilypad to lilypad, catching children and gobbling them up.
It's remarkable just how macabre this game actually is. Babaroga really does eat children in this game, and the gruesome crime is represented with a generous dose of blood and juvenile screams. It's played for laughs, but it really is quite nasty when you get down to it.
The game isn't one you'll keep returning to, but it's absolutely free for the duration of Halloween week, so snap it up. You'll at least get an off-color laugh about the whole thing, and since when was it wrong to make children suffer the fate they truly deserve?
