8-Bit Halloween is a short but sweet platformer that's in the style of Castlevania and Ghost & Goblins, created by Lionsoft just in time for the All Hallows' Eve celebration. You play as Jackie-Gun, a buffed-up grunt who happens to be stuck in a cemetery with the exit door mysteriously locked at the start of the game. A friendly apparition appears out of nowhere and offers to help our hero escape, but before it can do so Jackie must find and rescue five of his other ghostly brothers (who somehow can't pass through the bars of the cages holding them in).
The game doesn't feature any sort of checkpoint system, so you'll have to play through the entire adventure in one go. Freeing ghosts also reward you with just one point of health, but you will lose it just as quickly if you don't watch your step when walking on a dead man's grave. 8-Bit Halloween is available to download from YoYo Games...it's safe, and better yet, its FREE!
