I love how you have incorporated the theme on this one. Peeking through the doors to find the cheeky ghost is a great way to interpret the theme.

Thanks for playing!

cool game :)

i like how there are different types of enemy, mixes up the gameplay.

it's really cool how you give the player the decision of how long to watch the ghost for, encouraging risk taking. the vignette effect when enemies appear is a good way of alerting the player to danger. 

Developer

Thanks for playing!

I enjoyed the concept of watching the ghost through the key hole, but I couldn't really tell how to get mana and I would just kind of take damage randomly. Great job on getting this done though.

Thanks!

Fun game, the spying for a little more while in danger was especially fun but it feels like you are certainly dead with no mana when ghosts appear. Well done.

Developer

Thanks!

Cute little game.

There are several game mechanics at once that fit together well. It's sad that with no mana when the ghosts appear, you can't do anything and still die.

But otherwise this is a very cool and fresh game! Thank you!

Developer

Thanks!

I like the stress athmosphere the background music makes with the chants. Fun game!

Developer

Thanks!

It's a bit hard at the beginning to understand the rules but after some time it's really nice game

After that it was fun.

Pretty tough but still fun, was neat once I figured out the ghost moves in the direction of the next door to look through, that was a nice design touch.

Developer

Thanks!

Cute game! Game design is innovative and the graphics are quaint. The difficulty is very high though. I agree with others that the player could use a health bar.

Developer

Thanks! In future version i'll put the health bar.

Submitted

nice game and graphics!

Developer

Thanks!

A fun time! reminds me of playing joust or old mario for some reason. It is a little difficult and could use a health bar, but overall well executed for the time you had. Good job man!

Developer

Thanks!

Submitted

Okay.. cute game :D :D :D

Took me a while to figure out what to do. Definately innovative. You're basically a peeping-tom for the undead and apparently you get a magical boner from watching the Ghost King lurk around.

Good fast fun. Thumbs up!

Ahahah, thanks!

I really like the look on this but it was a bit too difficult for me. You might want to adjust it so that ghost don't spawn until you've gained some mana as that feels like an unwinnable situation.

Developer

Thanks for the advice!

Submitted

it's preety hard, I would consider giving player more hp, the controls feel nice!

Developer

Thanks! 

Submitted

Cool game!

It took me a while to figure out what was going on. And how to get mana.

Quite difficult game for such cute graphics and sound! )))

Thank you, I enjoyed it!

Neat little game with a solid game loop, it's very enjoyable but way to hard for me. Still fun though, great work.

Developer

Thanks! 

Submitted

This is a neat game!

Developer

Thanks!
