Not bad. Gets really hard really quickly; had to quit in the level with the big tall corridor.

The concept is really fun, though, and as soon as I saw the name I knew I had to try it. Nice job!

This game was pretty fun and the mechanics were quite creative even though it was a platformer which surprised me. I really like the artwork for the character and that's the only reason I played this game to be honest. The first level with like 4 ghosts was a bit too much for me and I stopped there. Great job!

Entered for the name, stayed for the face! :D. Quite fun the game, although I had quite hard times with the CD (getting stuck, unexpected turns).
Overall, the idea is good, keep improving it!

I went in expecting in just pure silliness, but to my surprise it was not only incredibly silly, but a coherent game too! The mechanics are pretty creative.

One issue I ran into was the ghosts bunching up until they might as well just be one ghost. Maybe add some random variations on their AI.

A silly yet smart and incredibly fun game with cute graphics. Extra points for stylizing it after my favourite films.

I just came here to say that the "music" alone is worth a comment from me...

The game is also funny and very well coded, it's just that I find it too hard using both hands on the mouse and the wasd while my third hand had to press space...

(Just don't tell my third hand he doesn't really exist...) :)

I had a lot of trouble dealing with the ghosts but everything else was good. I liked the feel of swinging the floppy disk around.

The game is great! Good job! It is fun with little puzzle action. The thing i would recommend is to make jump be on W and you can enter doors with space or same w, it would be way more comfortable. Great work!

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Many solo participants enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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 ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
