Great game, however I feel the final boss is a bit unbalanced. Namely because it sometimes appears right on top of you when you're moving, so that you have no way to stop before running into it. Also the positioning of some of the hands makes some jumps impossible.

Cheers Zen! Great points: the small resolution constraint of the Low Rez Jam (64x64) made that boss very difficult. If I could do it again, I'd definitely make the boss appear more "off screen" and move a little slower. I also agree that the hands were a bit too "sudden" to account for the player's reaction speed. 

Thank you for the feedback!

Sweet little game :D I liked finding the ghosts.

Thank you! Super glad you liked it :)
