I really liked the idea here and the ghosts giving you powerups was such a great addition. This is a well polished game with lovely mechanics like the bouncing bullets and the radius blast bullets. I had a lot of fun playing this one! Great job!

This was great!  Cute art style, really loved the upgrade choices.  Nice variety of spoopy enemies.  Excellent execution of the focus and theme.  I really have no advice or critic to give for improvement.  I could seriously sit and play this for a long time - one of the few games in this jam I feel like I could do that in -  it's overall really fun.

Nice game. I love upgrades and at the moment first upgrades popped up it got interesting. I think it's a little bit easy but it makes sense since it's game-jam.
Well done

Love the little characters! I looked up the ghosts I thought I had seen before and this wasn't them. I think you did a great job with a really cool premise.

Wow, I loved the risk of rain type upgrades with the bullet hell gameplay. I kinda wished the ghost tail wouldn't contribute to your hitbox but it makes sense since the more powerful you are with a long ghost tail, the more vulnerable you become.  Like treemolo said though I got a little overwhelmed picking 3 upgrades at once but the upgrades did feel really good how they increased your speed/power/hitpoints. The enemy art was also super solid with a simple but effective soundtrack that gave it that spooky vibe. Well done!

Original concept here with the ghost theme!

I like that the ghosts that you collect are actually really useful.

I think that the powerup system can be improved, 3 per round it's too much, maybe less powerups and more interesting ones.

I liked your color palette selection too.

Good job!

I'd love to know what do you think of my game! :D
