Ghostupby leafo - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You're a measly ghost strapped for cash. Head to the human world to haunt strangers and earn some extra ghost bucks. Be careful, you're not very strong so you'll only have a single haunt before you evaporate. Buy some upgrades with your ghost bucks to go deeper into the human world.
Watch out for red ghosts, they can suck your life away. Dodge them or try to haunt them to oblivion.
X to haunt
Z to open doors (if you have a key)
How to play:
You only start with one haunt, but you can keep replaying the game with accumulated upgrades. Try to haunt some humans to get some cash, then buy additional health and haunts that will allow you to advance further in the game.
Red ghosts will hurt you if you touch them. If you are careful you can kill them by haunting them, or you can just avoid them.
Cool sound effects
Health and haunt upgrade system
It's not as done as I would like (which you'll see if you get to the end) but I hope you enjoy it regardless.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
