The idea has some potential. Killing ghosts for life, and limited amount of damage balances well with the enormous number of ghosts.

However, the collision with the doors in the rooms is a bit harsh - I would get stuck often when trying to move between rooms.

Also, ASWD for moving does not go very well with Space for shooting: the keys are too close to each other.

Keep battling on! :-)

@The Jahn: I added a 64-bit .dll, it should work now (I don't have a 64-bit system to test it)

My window manager for GNU/Linux seems to have a problem with all Java games and can't play your entry (I can't press any key…) I'll try later with a Windows box if I can't find one.

@summaky have you tried the web-version? I'm going to test it on a Linux system

Managed to get a Windows box (the Web version neither doesn't work for me in Linux, but this is again due to my environment.)

The first time I didn't read the instructions and wasn't sure what to do :-P Then, I tried to kill as many ghosts as I could, but ended always being the "worst ghostbuster"... It is, perhaps, a little too hard for me, but fun nevertheless. It could use some background music to spice up things a little. Not too original, though, but it fits the theme.

Nicely done.
