New side-scrolling game, Ghostie for iPhone, now available

Ghostie is a new side-scrolling iPhone game that has got me hooked. In this game, you must help the little square shaped ghost, Ghostie, get past various obstacles and pits to complete each level. The screen is constantly scrolling and you have only one control - jump.

I am experiencing both an intense amount of fun and frustration with Ghostie! The concept is so simple, but the gameplay is actually rather challenging. It is possible that I suck more than the average person, but the first level took me 25 attempts to pass.

The first level is free to play, so go pick this one up and see if you can do better than me. I was convinced I had a better grasp on the game, unlocked the next levels, and took 37 attempts to beat the second level. Man, that's embarrassing.

Resting in peace is hard work! For Ghostie, it's one thing after another - literally - as he dodges obstacles, leaps over pitfalls and avoids other spooky surprises on his path. Customize your Ghostie and help him safely cross to the other side of each hauntingly addictive level. And frequent updates will provide new challenges, obstacles and surprises sure to keep your spirits up! It's the most fun you can have without a pulse.

  • Chilling graphics
  • Challenging obstacles
  • Addictive gameplay
  • Amazing music
  • And much more!

Ghostie is available on the iPhone for free.

This game is a typical case of "graphics before gameplay".

Dangerous game ... almost had me throwing my iPhone. It's got the feel of a cool game, but it is waaay too difficult. They need to balance it in a hurry. Something like the first bump or two doesn't kill. It's along the same vein as Tiny Wings in that it's a single action, timing based thing. But Tiny Wings is better game play.
