Description

As a child I would lie awake in the dark for hours. Sometimes imagination can get pretty scary, I’m trying to capture this sense of spooky make-believe…

Future Improvements:

  • Re-making it in say Unity 3D with movable camera, wouldn't be thaaaaat hard.
  • More ghouls popping out behind stuff scuttling around, Labyrinth style.
  • More narrative with parents turning out light, coming up and telling you to cut out the monkey business…
  • Big ass boss monsters
  • Throwing pillows and smashing stuff…

The music is just placeholder stuff from the internets, I think the intro is from the immortal “It Came From the Desert” And the win anthem speaks for itself… Oh, you haven’t heard the win anthem yet? You mustn't have played the game hard enough….

Cheers

mattstruble (Matt Struble) 8 9 8 8 2 7 7 3 7 I absolutely loved the art style of this game. Everything just fit nicely together, the effects on the ghosts, the title screen effects. The game was fast paced and fun. Ended up hurting my hand after awhile, got 37 ghosts. However, when I was playing it I think the orange skull's hitbox was a bit off, which was rather frustrating. All in all a great game.

    Tip: You can wrap the .swf in html and dropbox will allow you to play it in-browser.

    Simple but very nicely polished and looking game. Nice job.
