Halloween Live Wallpaper v1.61

  - Bug Fix: shader error on some devices
  - Update: Nicer ghost rendering
  - Update: More triangles on jack-o-lanterns
  - Google Play Link

This is mostly a bug fix update, as some folks were getting shader compilation errors on their device.  I was surprised to discover the problem here -- the pixel shader was using a varying that was no present in the vertex shader.  I would have expected that to just blatantly break on any device, but apparently it's so tolerated that only some Galaxy Notes and things with the same chipset demonstrate the problem.

Beyond that a few minor improvements were added.  In particular the ghosts do a z-prepass now so they don't overlap themselves when rendering, which makes their arms cleaner.
