Product: Costume Quest
Developer: Double Fine
Format: iPhone, iPad
Double Fine's Hallowe'en-themed RPG makes an unexpected - if timely - return on iOS, with this fine port. It's a welcome opportunity to revisit a simple but enormously likeable game that captures the glee of a night spent trick-or-treating.
Of course, such a mundane activity needs a little extra narrative spice, and it comes when sniping siblings Wren and Reynold are suddenly separated, with one of the two (you have a choice of either as your playable character) kidnapped by goblins.
Your job, then, is to rescue them - though you'll still need to ensure your bag of sugary treats is regularly topped up along the way.
A sticky toffee pudding of a game, Costume Quest is warm, sweet, and satisfying
