Hey there, I played through your game in this video at 13:25 

Very cool idea. The graphic style actually makes me feel like I'm in an N64 game which is pretty cool. For such simple graphics  the game did really well at building tension, I was genuinely pretty jumpy at points! The tension between using a flashlight and the camera was effective, but could probably be even further heightened if even more was taken from the player without the flashlight, you can still see the ghosts more or less with the camera out. I also couldn't really tell how close I had to be in order to effectively kill a ghost with a camera and I wasted a lot of my battery the first time around just trying.

I like the low res style. The one battery mechanic works well to create tension.
