I love that spooky ectoplasm

I love that spooky ectoplasm arm and the delightful smile on the ghost. Using the arm to both spook and collect your candy is a really fun mechanic. (I can just imagine the little green ghost greedily stuffing its face back in the safety of its grave.)

pushin that candy

I liked the movement for the candy a lot. It moved really well, all bouncy and far. I tried to optimize by attacking a lot of kids at once and then trying to move the candy at the same time but I think that just screwed me up. The ghost was so cute, too.

Candies

Yep, a lot of candies on screen will increase your score, but they serve as obstacles when you want to throw your candies in. Watch out. :)

Happy to hear you all enjoyed it!

If they don't want to lose

If they don't want to lose their candy then they should come near my GRavEe!

Sometimes it feels like I'm slinging the candy with my arm, but I can't make it happen. I like it when it feels like I am slinging the candy all the way to my grave.
