When anything vaguely noteworthy occurs in the world, you can rely on iOS developers to take advantage, slashing prices like opportunistic cockney market traders.

And Halloween, in this country at least, definitely qualifies as 'vaguely noteworthy'.

Here, then, we've rounded up the best iOS games in the Halloween sales. Mainly so that you don't have to.

Some of these discounted gems are suitably spooky, while others are just ruddy brilliant. Who are we to argue with a good sale?

Most of these games will no longer be on sale after the jack-o'-lanterns come down, so act quickly.
