Home » Scare your Friends with the Scary Prank Windows Game

We all remember that maze game where you had to look really close at the screen in order to solve it and at a point, the scary face from The Exorcist showed up with a terrifying scream. That game was priceless, and the reactions of those who played it, also priceless.

Well, now you can enjoy those same reactions on your Windows 8, Windows 10 device with an app called Scary Prank. Now you can once again scare the life out of you friends and have some great laughs.

Scary Prank for Windows 8, Windows 10


The game itself is very basic, you are given a choice between three modes of gameplay and all you have to do is kick back and let the player freak out! Also, the app allows you set two of the games to the Modern UI start and let players start the game by their own.


The first game is the Color Blindness Test which shows players a number of cards before the scary face appears on the screen and starts screaming. The second game consists of a list of optical illusions and also ends in the same way as the first.


Last but not least, the Time Trigger mode allows you to set a timer for the face to appear and until then it shows a black screen. You might fools someone into thinking the game is loading while the countdown goes down and then watch the reactions of your friends. Also, in the settings charm, you can choose between the two scary faces that the app has.


Although the game might be fun, remember not to let anyone with heart disease or pregnant women play it. The shock might trigger a reaction that might not be beneficial for them.
