Just in time for Halloween, Smash-O-Lantern is an arcade game for Android.

How to play:

The object of Smash-O-Lantern is to smash every jack-o-lantern that appears on the screen. You score points for each pumpkin that you smash - the quicker you smash it the higher the score. You start each level with 5 lives. Each time you fail to smash a jack-o-lantern you lose a life. The timer behind each pumpkin turns red just before it expires. To advance to the next level, you must clear all the pumpkins before losing all your lives. After completing each level, you score bonus points for each life that remains.

Bats fly randomly across the screen. The faster they are moving the higher the score you earn when hitting them. If you miss a bat you lose a life.

If you manage to clear the first 10 fixed levels, there is a final set of randomly generated levels which get faster and faster.

How many levels can you complete?

The game ends when you lose all 5 lives before completing the level.
