Fantastic game with a beautiful style. One complaint/feedback: I messed up my first slingshot in the tutorial and couldn't access another ghost :( It might also be worth considering putting the ghost jump mechanic on a separate key to jump as I also accidentally used my ghost numerous times and had to backtrack to get a new one which was a little frustrating. Overall I loved it though!
[Arrow Keys] to move.
[Z] to Jump. You can double jump once for each ghost you have following you around.
Hold [X] and pick a direction to shoot a ghost, like a slingshot.
Ghosth is a puzzle platformer in which you have the ability to attract ghosts. After getting stuck in a ghost house, your goal is to escape by manipulating the ghosts in your favor. However, they have a tendency to follow you around everywhere and can be very annoying in large groups.
Made for Ludum Dare #40 Jam.

Really enjoyed this one. Aesthetic was nice, game play was interesting, and it had an cool mechanic. It's a fun experience playing a platformer with a mechanic that I never really saw before. Good job!
Cool little game! The only issue I had was sometimes the hitbox for the character seemed a bit big when I got hit by some obstacles. But other than that great job! Fantastic pixel art as always!
The player hitbox ended up being larger than it should unfortunately, something that I've overlooked after implementing the graphics. I'm working on fixing that along with other issues and I plan to upload a newer (and better!) version once this Ludum Dare ends.
Thanks a lot for playing it, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
