A Halloween endless runner! 

Featured at PAX East 2018 at the WPI IMGD booth!

Collect candy corn, phase through stuff, and in general be a ghost!

This was made over the course of October 2017 for the PICO-8 3-Color Jam. The jam's restrictions were to make something spooky and/or spoopy, and to use no more than 3 colors on-screen at once.


  • Arrows: Move
  • X: Continue/Phase Out


  • Phasing out makes you invincible and lets you pass through walls, but also drains energy.
  • Candy corn scores points and restores energy.
  • You can phase through the ground, but don't run out of energy or you'll be trapped!
  • You can change the color palette from the pause menu. There are 5 to pick from!

Hello! I really enjoyed your game, the colour schemes were super nicely done and the game play was great and I'm glad I could survive all those spooks! I made a let's play of your game  alongside another game here-

Hey, thanks for the kind words and the video!

I had made the game in time for Halloween (and released it on the PICO-8 site around then), but I didn't get around to properly setting up my itch page till recently so I posted it way out of season here.
As for the music being reminiscent of something specific, if it is that's completely unintentional. I was just fumbling around trying to do what I could to make something sound Halloween-ish.

You're more than welcome! Ah I suppose we were both a little out of season with this game :D

Maybe my mind was just over thinking the music as it might have just sounded halloweeny like on some 80s horror.
