Spooky Bonus is a match-3 game with a Halloween theme. Swap two items to create rows of three or more of the same item. Each level has certain goals that must be met to clear the level. There is a time limit but the clock can be turned off before the level start. Later levels have you collect gold tiles by matching over them or gold skulls by getting them to the bottom of the board. Obstacles will appears later like cobwebs that hold an item in place, rock that must be matched next to twice to clear and steel plates that must be matched over to clear.

Random helper items will appear like crosses that clear an area like a plus sign, silver bullets that clear one vertical column, flashlights that clear one horizontal row, Jack-O-Lanterns that clear the tiles adjacent to them, etc. There are level 1 and level 2 items. The level 2 items clear more area. In addition, there are items that you acquire as you progress that renew themselves when you make matches. These are a wooden stake to clear a non-locked tile, the hammer to clear a rock, the broom to clear a cobweb, the lightning spell to clear random tiles around the board, the crystal ball to randomly create a helper item on the board and the Tarot card to shuffle all non-locked item.

All this matching is being done to gather Halloween decorative items or gold. The decorative items you find are free to put in your yard. Other items require you to spend your earned gold to buy.
