Had trouble playing. This game assumes a very tall monitor—I couldn't see the health, oil, and sanity meters because they were off the bottom of the screen, and scrolling to find them is a pain. They could have been much smaller Also, the game is laid out on the page with's buttons on the upper-right overlapping, making it impossible to click anything under tham. In this case, scrolling was no help and I was just screwed. Only having left/right/up/down movement was frustrating. There's a good basic idea here, but it needs a lot more development.

Thank you for the feedback, another user expressed similar concerns which is why the fullscreen button is enabled despite not having great support for fullscreen play.

One suggestion I have is if you press control and scroll up or down (In Chrome, not sure about other browsers) you can zoom the window to make the game screen smaller so it can be played on your monitor.

Thank you for playing!  I really appreciate the feedback!

I am using Firefox on macos. I used Firefox's zoom command to make the game smaller and that showed everything, and made the overlay buttons not overlap the game any more so I could play without those hindrances.

I've done a couple runs now. It's pretty tough but I am figuring things out. It's very easy to run out of oil and have no way to restore sanity. I managed to get several levels in—past the one with 9 oil and 3 hearts. I didn't actually need the hearts but since there's no way to go back, I took them. I keep getting killed by the blue flames because they move in real time instead of on turns, and by the time I move my hand from the arrow keys to the trackpad it's too late. It seems I run out of both oil and sanity so that's moot anyhow, I've no resources to fight the blue flame.

I noted that the vampires just disappear on being struck. There is no animation or sound to indicate they've been killed. The ghosts do hiss when they die so that's good. I was surprised the ghosts don't go through walls. Kind of like the old arcade game Gauntlet. :-)

It took me a while to figure out that if I press space, the enemies will move to a square I can attack them in. I had the impression on early runs that I was getting attacked on diagonals but that turned out not to be true.

I decided early on that throwing the lamp to attack is a bad idea. In a comment below it looks like throwing the lantern can take out multiple enemies? I might try that on another run, if they are lined up, but so far I have been able to position myself so they just line up and come at me in a queue like polite British moviegoers.
