Haunted Dorm: 5 Reasons to Play this scary tower defence game

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 23rd, 2022
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Set in a haunted school dorm where players must stave off the attacks of a ghoulish Dream Hunter, Haunted Dorm is the nerve-wracking, horror-themed tower defence game from indie developer, Mihuan. Released on the app stores this February, Haunted Dorm has been gaining a steady following thanks to its original take on the tower defence genre, which departs from the standard button clicking mayhem we’re so used to, to deliver a more chilling experience.

Here are five reasons why we think it’s worth a try, if you dare..


A genuine fright

The origins of Haunted Dorm began with a nightmare suffered by its producer, Meiyu Lei, in which a ghost was trying to enter his home. After a futile attempt at staging resistance, the ghost eventually managed to break in.

Because they never learn, Kirito and his friends log in to investigate the stories but find themselves in the middle of an ambush.

T3 Arena announces to release of its hotly anticipated Ranked Mode

Posted by Shaun Walton on November 22nd, 2022

After a few months of making the commendable decision to stay purely unranked to ensure its gameplay was fair and all players balanced, T3 Arena has introduced a brand new Ranked Mode. Hopefully, this long wait for a ranked mode will pay off with an enjoyably unbroken experience.

There will be three of the big modes available in Ranked; Control, Payload Escort and Clash. This gives quite a nice spread of objectives to pick from, and the choice of their Clash mode over Team Deathmatch is pretty smart and will encourage a more tactical approach to ranked over the hell for leather charge and shoot that deathmatch brings.
