Haunted: Halloween ’86 – The Curse of Possom Hollow
Haunted: Halloween ’86 from Retrotainment Games is a completely unadulterated nostalgia head butt that gives gamers a chance to play a game that will transport them back to sitting down and popping in an 8-bit NES game in the 1980’s. It is an action platformer featuring some awesome beat ’em up mechanics set in a spooky town on Halloween night full of zombies and other monsters!

Creepy Brawlers from Mega Cat Studios is another creepy entry into the Switch eShop library. It’s gameplay is reminiscent of other 8-bit boxing games, such as Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. But, instead of your normal boxing ring with regular human fighters, you are taking on various monsters in a multitude of locations. One round might have you face off against the Frankenstein monster, the next might be Dracula.
