this game was a mixed bag. i loved all the pixel art and animations: the fake reddit page, the cute menu animations, the creepy enemies, petting cats. it was all attention to detail that pleasantly surprised me. unfortunately the game was soured by really bad music and tedious gameplay. the platforming itself was fun and had tight controls, but using the gun was tedious (regardless of difficulty). it's weak, slow, and has poor range. the charge shot helped, but enemies still felt like bullet sponges. if there was some second upgrade that helped this problem, i didn't have the fortitude to find it. that all said, i'm eager to check out candy trail and any future games because your art truly is wonderful.

I've seen your comment on some post on qoura

nevermind I fixed it, so in linux:

chmod +x SpookyGhostsDotCom

I'm playing with a keyboard and I'm not comfortable with the default controls. How do I change the controls on the menu? I can't assign any new keys for any actions, no matter how many keys I press, it just doesn't register somehow. I've noticed that when I hit F I cancel the change and go back, but that's about it. Is there a key that confirms assigning a specific key to a specific action?

EDIT: Since there isn't a manual or any instructions on the description, I have to ask here in the comments.

Hello! Sorry if its confusing!  At the top when you have "Controls Type" selected, you can press right or left to switch between controller/keyboard layouts, keyboard cant add changes to controller layout and controller cant add changes to the keyboard layout.

Oh shoot, I hadn't noticed the "controls type" at the top. Thx for the help.

Exploring the mansion and petting the cats is a fun time, and learning the patterns of enemies (and especially the bosses) is rewarding. What a cute and well-designed little game! 

thank you i am glad you had a good time!

I really love this super-pixely minimalistic graphic. My best compliments! :)

Thank you! 😊

You are very welcome ^-^

Este metroidvania me encantó bastante, es sencillo, corto y bastante adictivo. He elaborado una review completa aquí: https://retroorama.blogspot.com/2019/02/indie-review-spooky-ghosts-dot-com.html
