Visuals are really good! Too bad there isn't music, it would give a really sweet atmosphere.

The game mechanics is quite ingenious, and it feels great to play. Although I don't know if it is the fact that ghosts don't move a lot, or can't be seen from far away, but I did more relying on luck than establishing an actual strategy to shoot them. Still, it was a bit fun.

Making a shooter without bullets through the use of a camera is a solid idea. Having to use the zoom to get a better shot is great too. I think if the ghosts were more of a threat it would add a bigger risk/reward situation to picking your shots. Also, the levels are fairly empty; obstacles are another thing that would add more challenge to composing your shots.

It's a shame you weren't able to add music in the jam version as it would really help with the game's atmosphere (being set in a graveyard and all). Good transitions between levels. I liked the way you implemented your tutorial as well.

Good idea - I assume this was a shooter without a gun? Reminds me of Fatal Frame with a charming twist! Would love to see this expanded for Halloween.

Yeah Im glad you get it. I just checked out Fatal Frame and it's quite hard to see the connection besides the vibe of being trapped in a place. Thank you for the suggestion, I didnt realize Halloween is coming! ;D

The idea and game were quite good. Great achievement for two days of development.

Interesting idea, i like the concept of getting the most optimized shots, it's pretty satisfying getting a whole ton of ghosts lined up. I think the game bugged out for me (my battery was dead so i couldn't take pictures, no way to restart or progress) but I liked what I played.

Developer

Yeah I saw that coming. It was the result of my ambition to implement picking up upgrades and batteries, one can just do so much in 2 days T_T. Im glad you liked the concept!

I wish the game ended...

Developer

Yeah I was thinking that it could be fun to try to find the last ghost, not a wise choice. Thanks for the feedback!
