Halloween is just a few short days away (scary noises) and we have a few treats we thought we'd share before the weekend gets under way. First off we have some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich carved right into a pumpkin directly from our friends at Google thanks to their @Android twitter page, then we've spotted a few more Android pumpkins and even a few Halloween games and deals. Be sure to follow down past the break and see all the spooky details.

The photo above was sent over from our good friends Google as we mentioned above, it was posted right on their twitter page at @Android, then because we are cool you can also follow us from Android Community at @Androids (with an s). Then thanks to the @Android page we've also spotted some Android fan art that goes right along with Halloween and you can see that thanks to @atrain729. Check out his neat pumpkin below then feel free to share your own Android spirit or carvings this Halloween with us from Android Community at our twitter account linked to above, or in the comment section below.

Then our friends at droidgamers pointed out that while there wasn't an official announcement all of the games from the extremely popular developer Polarbit are currently on sale for just $0.99 for Halloween. Most of these are usually $2.99 and up and they offer some of the best games for Android.

Then for all of you gamers hoping to get into something a bit more scary this Halloween we have an awesome game called Twisted Lands: Shadown Town that is also on sale for just $0.99 in the Android Market. With twisted lands we have areas from the beach to the woods but people don't usually return from either in this spooky town. You've crash landed and your wife's gone missing and you can find creepy hidden objects and puzzles to find your way back but watch out for ghosts.

Get Twisted Lands: Shadown Town in the market right now while on sale for Halloween by clicking here.

We didn't stop there either, we have one of the best Live Wallpapers to help get you and your friends and family into the Halloween spirit and it's called Haunted House HD. Feel free to check out our full review of that awesome live wallpaper by clicking here.

Then last but not least we have two more quick applications for the holiday. First, is the extremely popular Angry Birds that I'm sure you all know plenty about but now with a little Ham'o'ween flare as they call it. Full details about the new Halloween edition Angry Birds can be seen here. Second, is SwiftKey X and their neat new update that brought plenty of bug fixes for one of the most popular 3rd party keyboards for Android to date. And they've added an orange theme just for Halloween too. Get all the details on the latest creepy crawly Swiftkey X and download it now right here.

We truly hope you enjoy some of the applications and pictures above and that you all stay safe this Halloween. We would love to see your Android costumes or pumpkin carvings this year or from the past so please feel free to share them with us in the comment area below.
