Official Description

The walk home from school today is going to be a lot spookier than usual... Your sleepy neighborhood’s been overrun by monsters! Werewolves prowl the woods, Gnomes roam underfoot, and scarecrows walk at midnight. But these aren’t ordinary monsters -- they’re R.L. Stine’s famous Goosebumps monsters, released from their books and looking to wreak havoc!

You’ll need to use your wits to investigate the surroundings, puzzle out clues, and outsmart the monsters before it’s too late! Survive a trek through your neighborhood, unravel the mysteries of Dead House, and sneak through the mall after hours; only then can you confront Slappy and stop his plans for revenge!

Books and Short Stories Referenced


  • There are three ghost children that the player has to make cross over to the after life:
    • The player can get rid of the female ghost (called "Angry Girl" when speaking) by knocking the year 1988 off The Cuckoo Clock. This is very similar to how Tara Webster was removed from The Cuckoo Clock of Doom. While this could be used as evidence that the girls are the same, the girl and Tara are different races and hair colors.
    • The face of the "Blonde Boy" is used as the icon of the achievement The Ghost Next Door. Danny Anderson from that book also has blonde hair, even though he wasn't a ghost in the book.
  • In the movie, Stine moved to Madison, Delaware a few years ago, and since the player had an iPhone, the game may have taken place in the year 2010.
  • The game's Opening cut scene is very similar to the movie's Alternate Opening.
  • The password to the computer, "1081943" is R.L. Stine's Birthday, October 8, 1943
  • The combination to the trunk in the master bedroom, "1992" is the year Welcome to Dead House was published.
  • In the game, Fifi is Mrs. Forster's dog (although they are from two different books).
  • Mr. Wood, Dr. Brewer's Clone, the Grool and Aunt Dahlia appear even though they have been killed off in previous stories.
  • The game refers to Cronby the Troll as "Cronby the Leprechaun".
  • If the player tries to enter the furnace in the basement of Dead House, the player is met with a message saying, "Nope! So Much Nope!" This is a reference to the "Nope!" Internet meme.
  • The Nintendo 3DS version doesn't have any of the achievements.
  • When the player enter's the kitchen of Dead House for the first time, the music's volume gets quiet than usual, and it stays that way for a while. The volume goes back to normal when you enter the living room after escaping from the Monster Blood, where you see Slappy's message on your TV.
