Mini Ghost Hunter

by 7Soul - Competition Entry

In this game you are a Ghost Hunter and you must explore a mansion to find the ghost who is responsable for the other ghosts appearance.

Keys:
Z - Confirm
X - Cancel
Enter - Menu/Pause

To save you must press Z on a blue orb
To increase your stats, you must press Z on a purple orb (i think there's a bug there u.u')

You can only use skills if you learn them, but the menu shows them all anyways. You get a skill every 4 levels up to level 24.

EDIT: I uploaded a new version with corrected stats and with a better way to calculate exp, so the game has a better dificulty scaling

Well, besides all problems, I hope you enjoy playing

it's impressive how much there is here in terms of content and mechanics.

From my playthrough, tuning is a bit easy. I seemed to level up very quickly while the enemies got tougher more slowly.

Highly impressive! Love the pixely graphics, love the RPG elements. In fact, I love the whole thing! Although it did lag a little for me at times. Amazing that you did this all in 48 hours. The only problem was the difficulty curve; I started 1 hitting all the enemies after a few minutes, and it took me only 3 hits to kill the boss :)

Great game!
The tuning turned out a tad too easy, I had no trouble beating everything to a pulp. Until the boss. Looks like with the boss you need to use a spell, hits seemed to randomly heal him.
Other than that, a really good game, esp. for 48 hours. I love the little pixelled details.

Thx for the comments. As I said, I had no time to playtest so I randomly throwed numbers for the enemies stats. Also the exp gain is kinda off

That's a pretty small window! I guess you weren't kidding when you called this Mini Ghost Hunter ..

The difficulty curve seems a bit uneven at the start. After the first two ghosts I had big problems surviving anything else, which tended to kill me in only a few hits since I was injured from the ones before and there was no way for me to heal yet, and there wasn't enough magic to kill them faster with a spell. After the random number generator decided the first two ghosts mostly missed, I managed to survive and completed the game without any trouble..

Music got pretty repetitive after a while.

Oh also, ran into a couple bugs. After I got a game over and started another game, I got two instances of the music playing on top of another. Also, when upgrading my stats at the purple orb my money display got bugged and suddenly said I had more than 7000 coins (although I couldn't use them to upgrade, so I think it was just a display error), and earned several thousands for battles afterwards. Might have been a few orders of magnitude more actually, as it went off the right side of the screen. Also ran into a couple invisible ghosts, not sure if that was intentional or not.

Anyway, apart from the issues, it's a nice game =)

Seems like a very nice game, though from reading earlier comments you may have overcompensated when fixing the difficulty, as I can't kill more than a few enemies before dying. Really dig the graphics and audio, the music in particular reminds me of the old game boy Final Fantasy Legend series (which is a good thing).

Might be my advancing years, but the window seemed a little small. Nice graphics from what I could tell with my magnifying glass and box of Wether's originals.
