You play as an animated skeleton that wakes up in a haunted castle. In order to escape you need to overcome challenging levels full of enemies and traps while also racing against the clock to complete the levels as fast as possible. Spikes, fireballs, lava, timed platforms…everything in this castle is trying to kill you – will you have what it takes to survive?

Key features:

  • 4 different chapters with 10 levels each: a total of 40 levels full of madness and challenges!
  • Dangerous traps and enemies: spikes, fireballs, lava, timed platforms, skeletons, and more!
  • Timed levels: replay the levels as many times as you want and try to beat your previous score.
  • Classic arcade platformer playstyle: old school difficulty of classic NES platform titles.
  • Simple and accessible controls.
  • Easy to play, hard to master.
