What was that? You awaken to find your once quiet house is full of noisy party guests! Can't a ghost haunt in peace?

Possess items around the house and scare everyone out! The more you scare, the more powerful you become. Don't frighten them too much though, they might freak out and do something stupid...



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good game, missing some features...

Fantastic game overall. Beautiful art style and wonderful controls. The premise is a little played out but executed well. The music and mechanics of the game are both charming and fun. The only place you get docked are on the complete and utter lack of a pause and the lack of an ability to adjust the in-game volume. If you were to fix these issues then you would have a relatively perfect flash game.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not bad

The game is simplistic, the controls are decent. My only complaint is the way scares are detected. It seems that detection is based purely on visuals, since it is possible under certain circumstances to have one person standing directly in front of a scare and not notice it because they are facing the other way. Perhaps noise could come into the equation?

Also, a relatively easy way to scare multiple partiers out is to build up the 'scare meter' until it is high enough for you to use the second scare effect of the mirror above the fireplace (the lightningbolt effect), which has high enough scare value for its speed to scare anyone out of the house if you spam the down or up buttons when they enter the room. I've got an average of twenty people out with that tactic alone.

Well done

Its a good game, however it took a lot longer than I had thought. And it's hard keeping figuring out if someone committed suicide or ran away. Oh well, great job on the game!

Read before playing, please

Haunt the House is an original game and has a crazy (in the good way of speaking) objective.
The graphics are funny and it feels good to float with the ghost around the house because it provides us a nice feeling of freedom.

Despite all of this, I don't think it deserves a 10 star rating because it isn't very entertaining.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


Fun game I thought it was really great lots of options and stuffs to keep me busy.
The graphics were great and alot of idea went into this I like freaking them out.
Somewhat it could be a little TO hard and get very difficult and hard for me anyway.
The Game mechanisms were good but some of the control choices could've been better.
Great game really addicting I'd play this more times just not for to long.
