Ghostory is a 2D platformer based on switching between a human form and a ghost form to pass various puzzles. It is underlined by a light-minded, yet engaging plot and retro-styled pixel art graphics.
In human form, the player can interact with levers, keys or backpack. In ghost form, the player can fly or pass through walls. The player has to cleverly use both forms to get the backpack out of the cave.
Throughout the game, you pass through dozens of carefully-crafted levels which test your logical thinking. New mechanics and unique puzzles get introduced the deeper you get into the cave, making the game easy to get into, but always challenging and non-repetitive.
- Puzzles: Loads of unique levels and complex puzzles
- Story: An engaging and deep, yet a little bit crazy and pun-heavy storyline
- Atmosphere: Well-suited music for each level, multiple detailed environments
- Gameplay: Smooth and responsive mechanics
In Ghostory, you take role of a lone traveller who got lost in the woods. He drinks from an unknown lake and gets affected by a curse – he can transform to a ghost and fly. However, he is slowly dying.
Thankfully, he meets an old lady (with her own sense of humour) which can help him prepare an antidote – but she needs a special mushroom for it. Even though he finds the mushroom pretty fast in a cave nearby, a very unlucky earthquake occurs, trapping him inside. Will he find his way out? What secrets await him in the cave? Will the cure even work?
Find out yourself!
