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.
