What would a psycho slasher do when happy campers are nearby? In this brooding, comic ode to classic 80s horror, Skullface – the main antagonist excited about slaughtering sprees – needs to solve his way through the camps to eliminate his victims. No one is safe, not if Skullface has your skills to help him with his evil plans!

There are 11 gut-wrenching videotapes you can find yourself in, with over a hundred puzzle variants that are never the same. To move Skullface around the camps, you must swipe tactically towards the direction you want him to go to. He can only move past open spaces; thus, you will have to think of a fast way to get him around all sorts of obstacles. Advanced levels will feature tricky traps like land mines and SWAT teams, so always be on your guard!

▲ Campers in certain levels will move away and cower in corners, making it harder for you to complete the puzzles. Take this as an opportunity to refine your solving skills.

▲ If you wish to play without the bloody effects, then go for Puzzle Game. If you want to splurge on ultimate mayhem, then choose Rampage.

▲ "Gorepacks" can give you more solving advantage in future levels.

You have finally landed your first acting role on television! Even though the role is a little unusual, you are still determined to impress your producers and your would-be fans. The only way to maintain great ratings is to annoy your ill-tempered neighbor without getting caught; thus, use your solving skills to set up the meanest pranks just by using the little resources that you have within every airing episode.

Move around or to and from rooms by tapping on anywhere you want your character to go to. Focus on the rage meter of your neighbor – this is crucial for rating maintenance, as the angrier the neighbor is, the funnier the episode gets. Make sure you move out of the room when the neighbor makes his way towards you – you can check the probable places he is going to visit next by tapping on him directly. Do whatever you can in your power to make your neighbor's stay nightmarish, but remember, don't ever get caught or risk having your show taken off air!

▲ Pesky, witty, and cunning - these are what you are in the show. Prove these to your audience by getting the highest ratings!

▲ Don't rush into new episodes just yet. Read the episode description so you will know what to do first.

▲ The farther you go into airing, the more tricks you will have to provide for your audience. Use this as an opportunity to refine your creativity and solving capabilities.
