As for the hunter, the goal is to prevent the survivors from escaping and send them back inside the manor.

What’s scary about this game is its environment and atmosphere. The game is set during a foggy night in a large estate with a haunted-looking manor. If you’re playing the role of a survivor, you’ll likely feel as if you are a part of a scary thriller movie trying to escape from a killer psychopath monster.

Death Park 2

The second-ranked scariest Halloween game for 2021 would have to be given to Death Park 2. It’s the second installment of the Death Park series and the continuation of Charlie’s story. He is the kid who was trapped in the nightmare world in the first game. But in this game, it’s his sister who’s trapped. The game features many elements that you’d find in a typical horror setting. An abandoned-looking town, scary monsters, switching between the real world and the nightmare world, and an evil scary clown.

It’s a game that mixes many of the elements that are found in nightmares. So, don’t be surprised to find yourself at the edge of your seat as you play this action-adventure horror in 3D graphics. We give this game a rating of 8 out of 10.

Specimen Zero

Another scary game that is actually tied for second in our rankings is Specimen Zero. It’s an arcade horror 3D multiplayer game published by Café Studio. It’s a game where your goal is to escape from an unknown place. After being kidnapped, you woke up in a place that looks like an abandoned hospital. But it’s not just a typical abandoned hospital, as something seems out there lurking and waiting for you.

It’s an exciting game that’s full of jump-scare moments, especially as you encounter the hideous-looking monsters roaming around. Aside from dealing with them, you also have to solve puzzles to unlock doors and escape the terrifying place. With its scary gameplay and premise, this game deserves an 8 out of 10 as well.

Ice Scream 3

Another game that also involves kidnapping and evil scary beings is Ice Scream 3. But instead of being the one kidnapped, your role here is to investigate and help free kids who are kidnapped. You will play the role of a kid in this arcade horror game and your goal is to solve the mystery involving the evil ice-cream seller. The game also features a spooky setting with lots of jump scares.

The environment itself is not that scary since the ice cream factory doesn’t look abandoned. But it does provide a creepy and unsettling feeling as you explore and try to find ways to solve the mystery and save the kidnapped kids. This first-person 3D game from Keplerians Horror Games gets a 7 out of 10 rating.

Ice Scream 3



This horror game is not full of jump scares like the other games ahead of it in the rankings. But it doesn’t mean that Distraint is not scary. It’s a casual adventure 2D side scroller where you play the role of an ambitious young man named Price. What he does is seize properties from other people who couldn’t pay. But his encounter with an old lady affected him mentally and psychologically. That psychological impact will manifest itself throughout the game.

What makes Distraint scary is that it’s a psychological horror. You’ll encounter many demons and monsters along the way, which are all manifestations of what Price is feeling inside. It’s a very relatable game, especially if you have your own inner demons. And because of that, it’s also getting a score of 7 out of 10.



100 Doors Horror

Probably the simplest horror game on this list is 100 Doors Horror. It’s an escape puzzle horror game where your goal is to open the door in front of you to escape. To unlock and open the door, you’ll need to solve a puzzle first. The puzzles, in the beginning, are easy, but as you progress further, they become more difficult to solve.

What makes this game scary is the atmosphere it provides along with the music. It provides an eerie and scary feeling while you try to solve the puzzles in front of you to open the door. It makes you feel like something sinister is up ahead. Despite the scary atmosphere, there’s really nothing that special about it, which is why it only gets a score of 5 out of 10.

Horror Show

The lowest-ranked scary Halloween game you can play is Horror Show, a multiplayer survival horror game. The gameplay is actually a bit similar to Identity V, with 5 players playing and 1 of them being the killer while the other 4 are the survivors. For the killer, the goal is to hunt and capture all of the survivors before they can escape. For the survivors, the goal is to escape the cursed town before the psycho killer captures all of them.

The 2D game features a scary setting and you have the option to choose the environment. The only reason why it’s last on this list is that it’s not as scary as the other games above it. It also gets a rating of 5 out of 10.
