Last night, Atari released a re-imagined version of Haunted House, turning the game into a free-to-play endless runner. Developed by Kung Fu Factory, who also developed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, the game drops players into the shoes of a boy lost in a scary place. In order to help him on his way home through a creepy mansion and its graveyard, players will need to a clear a path for him as he runs, jumps and maneuvers around traps.
Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer of Atari, had this to say of the re-imagining:
From enthusiasts of the original Haunted House to today’s on-the-go mobile gamers, players of all ages and generations are in for a completely new and fun gameplay experience. As we look to celebrate and refresh classic titles like Haunted House and RollerCoaster Tycoon, we will continue to extend fan-favorites to new PC, digital, social and mobile versions, as well as expand the Atari brand to online gambling and other gaming platforms.
Haunted House is available now and is free to play.
