Choose your fighting style
Combat is one of the fundamental pillars of Death or Treat. Choose your favorite weapon style (fast, heavy or ranged) and face a real horde of enemies in the purest hack’n slash style: fly through the air and attack the crowd with force, move nimbly and look for their weak point.
Collect valuable hidden treasures to unlock new terrifying weapons and spooky skills that will help you in your journey.

Meet the spooky but friendly neighbors of HallowTown, they are a coffin of surprises!
Each one of the stores that you will find in HallowTown can provide different profit for your enterprise. You can create new weapons at Frank’s Forge, or buy healing potions at DetoxBucks.

Finally, go to Pumpkin© to trade your ingredients for more candies!
