While it isn’t the genre of games most heavily focused on by the service, there are a number of options available for anybody looking to try out some spookier games after getting a subscription to Apple Arcade.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

7/7 The Get Out Kids

While it isn’t the most terrifying game in the world, The Get Out Kids is an almost Goonies-style adventure set in the 80s. A pair of kids & their dog sneak out to try & see a late showing of a new movie (named Ghostblasters in a not-so-subtle nod to Ghostbusters) & get caught up in a mystery when their dog goes missing.

Involving a creepy groundskeeper & a series of puzzles & hidden object searches, the game is a nice piece of nostalgia for players as well as a fun & unique-feeling game that doesn’t have many rivals on Apple Arcade.

6/7 Castlevania: Grimoire Of Souls

A franchise that is almost synonymous with the horror gaming genre, Castlevania has long pitted players against the forces of Dracula. This side-scrolling action game takes place after Dracula has been locked away, & retains much of the appearance of the original games which will make this a fun adventure for fans of the franchise.

The game was originally pay-to-play & thus there are some aspects like weapons needed for later stages of the game, which players will have to work to unlock. This isn’t a problem for most players but can be a grind for players looking to quickly zoom through a variety of games on the Apple Arcade platform.

5/7 Murder Mystery Machine

Fans of story-driven visual novels may like the style of Murder Mystery Machine. Treated more like a game version of Law & Order than anything else in the gaming world, players have to explore crime scenes & interview suspects along their way toward solving a variety of murder cases.

The game isn’t the easiest to solve, though the player detective’s partner will give clues occasionally if a difficult problem persists in not being solved. It also releases in an episodic format similar to the style of Telltale Games, which fans of that style will appreciate greatly, & the mind-map puzzle style is something a little different from what players are used to, which many have already praised as a great addition to the game.

4/7 Neversong

A fascinating game that tries to delve into some darker & deeper themes of games like Little Nightmares. Neversong is about a young boy who wakes up confused & seeks out the secrets of Blackfork Asylum as he is forced to traverse the terrifying halls & puzzles within. Dealing with the creatures & many bosses situated through the levels of this game is an unnerving experience.

Alongside his trusty baseball bat & several friends, Peet has to tackle the reasons behind the violent nature of adults. These themes & the hair-raising locations help make this feel like a true horror game, though the puzzling side that players expect this sort of game to have falls a little to the wayside & isn’t as unique as in some similar games.

3/7 Survival Z

Without as many jumpscares or puzzles as many of the other horror games available on Apple Arcade, Survival Z nonetheless belongs in the horror genre. A tower defense game that features multiple hordes of zombies charging at a pair of kids trying to survive & reach a location filled with resources.

The game doesn’t have much story but has been a huge success for Apple Arcade. The fun art style & capable mechanics make it worth the time for fans of tension-building waves of enemies or tower defense games.

2/7 Creaks

For fans of classic puzzle platformers that use a creepy, dark world such as Little Nightmares, Creaks is something that will intrigue & delight. The player character is sitting in his house when he hears mysterious noises behind a secret door & finds himself in a cavernous underground world filled with strange bird people.

Shape-shifting monsters & a creepy atmosphere make this a great piece of fun for horror genre fans, but also for anyone who loves a great puzzle because there has been huge praise for Creaks ability to create unique, intricately designed puzzles that will keep players guessing.

1/7 Inmost

Possibly the best horror game of all the Apple Arcade ones available so far is Inmost. This is another puzzle platformer that focuses on a creepy, atmospheric style & manages to deep-dive into an intriguing story about a little girl, a knight, & a w&erer. All three are playable characters in this cinematic work of art.

From luring enemies into traps to solving puzzles around the environment & finding ways to utilize the tools at the disposal of the various characters, players will get a huge kick out of this if they enjoy similar games. Inmost is also available on Steam for anyone looking to try out some Apple Arcade games on their PC.
