From rune divination to a creepy retelling of the real-world Salem Witch trials, we’ve got some early Halloween apps that are sure to entertain. Toss in a Battleship clone and a medieval shooter, and you’ve got yourself a solid collection of fresh iPad game apps for the week.

Midnight Mysteries: Salem Witch Trials ($9.99)

Salem Witch Trials is the perfect app to get you into the Halloween state of mind. Nathaniel Hawthorne has died during a blizzard, and his ghost has returned, asking you for help. You can free his spirit, but only after spending many hours examining the clues in a multitude of locations, using the iPad’s pinch and zoom feature to get up close and personal with dozens of objects. You’ll travel through time back to the Salem Witch trial days, interview pasty ghosts, solve puzzles, and collect objects.

Rune Magic Plus ($6.99 for a limited time)

Beyond tarot cards and the usual psychic readings in dark parlors, there’s runes. For generations, these inscripted stones have led people to a better understanding of their destiny, complete with details about love, health, business and even fortune. Maybe. Rune Magic Plus will help iPad users study rune divination in the comfort of their home. Rune meanings are clearly displayed, and you can cast runes to give you advice, see your future, and solve pressing problems. An entertaining way to delve into a potentially revealing universe, just in time for Halloween.

Battleship for iPad (Free)

Hey, you sunk my battleship! Grab this free app and start attacking your opponent’s fleet. Battleship for iPad is certainly basic, but considering it’s free, it’s a solid addition to any iPad gaming app collection. Avoid one common frustration, and use two fingers to pivot your ships into a vertical position when placing your boats. One quibble — who thought adding two one-square boats would make this classic better? It’s certainly harder, and adds more luck to each win.

Medieval HD Lite (Free)

Put on your chain mail, pick up your helmet, and prepare to get downright medieval. Medieval HD Lite is packed with top-quality graphics, and offers iPad owners a unique castle defense game that’s playable by newbies and veteran gamers alike. Upgrade your weapons as you progress, recruit fighters to help defend your castle, and stay alive through wave after wave of baddies. Four levels for nada bucks — plus (gasp!) fireballs launched from catapults — equals a must-have little gem of an app.
