Hello, Newgrounders.

As a test, I wanted to program a simple yet fun game in ActionScript 3. I hope you'll agree my attempts were successful.

The game is simple - the Boo can be either just looking ahead, or closing his eyes. Clicking him switches between those. While he is looking ahead, you earn points but the light will instantly end your game. While he is hiding, you don't earn points but the light won't harm you.

For your enjoyment, I attempted to include some Newgrounds Medals. After quite some time, they still haven't been approved, so maybe my game's just too simple to deserve them. Ah well...

So yeah, this is also my way of celebrating Halloween. I drew everything besides the obvious Newgrounds elements, and even composed the background music. If you wanna steal it and put it on your site, that's fine, but a note would be polite.

This game working? I clicking on ghost something he close eye and sometimes nothing happends... i guess its bugged.

Nice, simple and very addictive. What more can be asked of a flash game.

If I was too be picky I would say that the graphics could have done with more work for example a slight gradient fade on the light would have been nice though the character had great style to it and i like that the amount of movement you gave it.

Not much to comment on. It's a really good waste of time.

Thanks a lot. It's a really old game at this point, but I'm tickled people are still playing it today.

Cute & Simple

This was a cute little simple game you made for Halloween,it wasn't much but the basic avoid the moving target from hitting you by clicking on your character but i really liked the idea of controlling a cute little Boo ghost to avoid light cause of course Boo ghosts don't like the light :p,the game itself wasn't that difficult and usually concentration & relaxes are my specialty,overall i had fun with this game and think you made a nice contribution for Halloween 2010. :)

Mariofan9 responds:
