For the past throwback reviews this Spooktober, we discussed titles that dabbled in horror as a mere component of their multifaceted tones.

When I first booted up the Halloween hack about two years ago, I expected the regular Halloween fare: palette swaps of areas to make them either Autumn-themed or spookier. Altered sprites for enemies to either give them a Halloween theme or a creepy aesthetic. Words or images meant to…
