Good job . Just felt like what @theo said about health  bars and maybe make the bullets for the ghost smaller or the player . the camera is kind of small compared to them making it hard to avoid shots


Good effort for your first jam! I really enjoy the art and the music. The gameplay could use some improvements such as adding a health bar for the ghost, and reduce the difficulty a bit :)


it was fun! pretty hard to kill the ghost though.


Good concept but there needs to be more polish, I know this is your first game jam and I can relate because this is my first one too, but I feel like this game could have been greatly improved with some visual feedback like little animations or a health bar for the ghost (that I never defeated).  I also feel as if both the player and the ghost were smaller, there could have been movement on the x axis of the game which would have improved the game drastically. Overall there is a good base but it needs to be expanded upon because the way it is it feels incomplete and rough around the edges. Good for your Game though, as it is a learning experience.


It feels very unfinished, more player feedback is needed and the music is very repetitive so it gets annoying quick, there's also no real way to "escape" the ghost because we're locked on the Y axis. I feel like it could definitely be improved.


Thanks for the feedback! I'll try to take this into consideration! This is my first game so I am still learning.


"Failed to load mono"... But it looks very cool on the screenshots. I wish I could have played the game


I tried to play your game, but it says "Failed to load mono"


A lot of people have had trouble with this and I'm trying to fix it! I am so sorry!


I dont know if this is the same for every one else but when I tried to launch it it brings up this error 

Application folder:
C:/Users/sl18g/AppData/Roaming/itch/apps/escape-the-ghost/Escape The Ghost
There should be 'S2DJ2020_Data'
folder next to the executable

try ot fix pls


sorry about that. This is my first time doing something like this. Sorry!


Its ok, I can relate its my first time too


I tried to run the game on windows but I got an error that "UnityPlayer.dll" is missing.. 😢


Ok thanks! I'll try to fix that.
