Unless I’m mistaken, this is poorly designed, with cheap hits from things like jumping down onto offscreen spikes you have no way of knowing are there until you’ve already done so.

I've been endlessly fond of this for a while it captures my particularly halloween spirit perfectly! is there anywhere to buy or download the soundtrack?  

What's the name of the intro song?  Cuz I want it too.


Very well polished platformer with a lovely aesthetic. It would have fit in the NES era of platformers with the style and difficulty. Loved playing it! Great job.


Loved it, super fun 8 bit game with the difficulty to match.

I purchased this game about a year ago along with other games in a bundle and where do I find the steam key to play the steam version?

If you bought it in the bundle, you don't get the Steam key.


Loved that game! Awesome work!


What a cute spooky Halloween game, I love it! Just starting out it's tough but I'm excited to play through more :)

um, is there a way to make the game run in windowed? taking up my full monitor, especially with a game with low res graphics like this, is really bad


alt+enter duder

any chance of a mac version?

I purchased the game through the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, and I can no longer download the modern edition.

HMM?? I don't know how we can fix this. I'll raise a ticket with itch. Thank you for the report!

I purchased it for $4.99 way back before the price was updated and i do not have access to the modern edition...

Sorry to hear this. I will ping the support thread with itch again.


We've updated the pricing scheme which may fix this issue. Please let us know!


It works! Thank you!


It's ok.


u are too :)

The new free update is amazing! I’m played my again with the new characters this weekend!

I love this game. The controls, the animations. Amazing! Please do a sequel of sorts ( I haven’t completed the game so don’t tell me how it ends :)

Thanks a lot~! <3


Really enjoyed the game! I couldn't seem to figure out the easy continues option, no matter what I did I would end up back at the beginning of the game after a game over, but I really enjoyed what I played! It has an awesome asthetic.


Please try the new update!!

Is it somehow possible to keep the unlocked characters after you exit the game?

If you exit to the main menu you can save your game, or if you get a game over.

I feel super stupid but I can't find the option to save. I only see 'save and confirm' in the config but I don't think that's for game saves, only for saving settings.

The game features auto-saves! 


Thanks. Something must have went wrong the first time I played it. Now it saves as it should.


Challenging retro platformer in the vein of Ghosts 'n Goblins. It has several unlockable characters, a few secrets, some cool boss fight designs and best of all: A ton of accessiblity options. I really enjoyed playing this once I turned "Friendly Continues" on, which allows you to restart at the beginning of an area instead of the the whole level. Or just go all out and turn on 99 lives so you can brute force yourself to the end. If you enjoy the retro style platformers, you will love this one as well. 4/5

What are the controls? I can't seem to jump :(


Z, X, C, V and Arrows -- if you are playing on keyboard!

Is this game playable with a controller?



Dude, the song from the trailer gets stuck in my head constantly. Friggin rules. That space between punk and NWOBHM. Is there a bandcamp link or anything? Or even a band name? I haven't seen one... maybe I'm looking in the wrong place...






I dig it - gives me Monster Party vibes for the NES!



Any chance your team will add windowed mode to this game? Pretty solid little arcade title.

Press Alt+Tab!

That just minimizes it on my end.

Edit: I've found that alt+enter works. Maybe that is what you meant.


it is lol sorry (also hello, 8 months later)


Looks great but it needs controller support. Or does it already?


try using x360ce

Hi. Thanks but it would be nice if it was built in.

Xinput devices are supported!


This game gives you the REAL DEAL classic arcade feel with a ton of really cool characters! I love it!


We are working on an update this year as well. Thank you!



I seriously found this game in a certain arcade I'm sure you're aware of. And I played it there and fell in LOVE with it in just a few minutes.

It's dripping with personality and just feels so good to play.
