A downloadable game for Windows

You ain't 'fraid of no ghost!

Challenge yourself in this arcade game! 

Don't let the two characters fool you. It's a single player game!

Take control of ghost hunters linked to each other with a beam capable of destroying ghosts. 
Don't separate them too much or the link will break!
Run across the room to kill as many spirits as you can.

Compare your score with other players in the online leaderboard!

The game can be played with the keyboard or a gamepad.

Gamepad : use the left and right stick to control each character. Press LB to trigger the current power up you may have collected.

Keyboard : use wasd/zqsd and the arrow keys to control each character. Press space to trigger the current power up you may have collected.


There are two powerups you can collect after destroying orange ghosts:

1. Time Freeze: freezes enemies for ~5 seconds to help you clear the area without danger. Display turns to black and white.

2. Attraction Trap: A trap is dropped in the middle of your beam. It attracts all enemies near by and destroy them on contact. Beware: this one is a double edge sword, it may give you a lot of points but don't get in the way of enemies being attracted to the trap!

Try to keep the small guy on the left and the tall guy on the right

Congrats on making top 20 in the GMTK Jam! I wanted to reach out to ask if anyone on the dev team would be interested in participating in an interview about your experience during the jam? Interviews are conducted over Discord and presented live on Twitch.
