New iOS Games and Apps of the Week: Halloween Edition

Sister Location

If you have been hoping to play the Five Nights at Freddy's spin-off, Sister Location, for Halloween you may have to wait until November. Developer Scott Cawthon has delayed the official version of the game due to its mature content. However, fans who do not want to wait can download an unofficial version of the game in chapters.

After receiving criticism for delaying the game, Cawthon decided to release a mature version of Sister Location to Game Jolt. The mature version of the game does not continue the story of Five Nights, and it is not recommended for fans who enjoy following the official canon of the series.

New iOS Games and Apps of the Week: Batman The Telltale Series and more

Batman - The Telltale Series

The long awaited episodic video game series starring Batman from Telltale is finally here, but shockingly the first user reviews are overwhelmingly negative. Batman - The Telltale Series has received a disappointing 3 stars on the App Store due to glitchy graphics, bad controls and slow loading times. This may be due to the game being recommended for newer devices, such as the iPhone 6 or later, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.

If you have a newer device and want to give Batman a spin, the first episode is available for $4.99 on the App Store. You can also purchase the entire series for $14.99.
