Flashlight is a game created by 3 people in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 31 game jam under the theme “Entire Game on One Screen”.
It is a game about catching ghosts in a haunted house. The player uses a flashlight to catch the ghosts, because ghosts are afraid of light. The player needs to use the flashlight smartly, for that ghosts coming in from different sides of the house, and their behaviors vary. Besides, if a beam of light catches more than one ghost, the player gets a score bonus. There is also a BOSS in the end! Try to get a higher score!
