Freeware Garden searches the corners of the internet to highlight one free game every day.
Ghost Wheel? is not an oddly named game, but it is an odd theme for a game jam. The result is a downloadable, freeware bundle sporting nine games, each starring ghosts and wheels in different formations.
Walk below to find out what they are called (and what they are all about).
AGPPBP – Stands for A Ghost Porno Page By Page and, though disappointingly SFW, is an excellent little thing to, uhm, explore. Excellent!
Invasion – A shoot-and-avoid-‘em-up with you starring as the chunky, ghostly protagonist. Fun for ten minutes, but it really looks lovely.
A Walk In The Rain – A walk through a 3D effect.
Everyday Ghosts – More of an exploration thing with some vague goals, a few interactions and aesthetics that should remind you of Kentucky Route Zero. Actually, I’d call it beautiful and filled with delightful things (I won’t spoil) to run into.
Ghost – In which you play as a cute little ghost trying to not-so-cutely scare two children, mainly by switching lights on and off.
Spooky Ghost Wheel Town – It’s not just the terrific and lovingly animated pixel-art. It’s the great platforming and early Mario-esque action that had me playing this little thing for a couple hours. And then another.
Carnighoul – Nice static shooter utlizing the GameBoy’s palette.
Music for Decay – An isometric endless runner that looks a bit like something you’d be playing on a NES. Ghosts are implied. Subtly.
Prowl – My absolute favourite offering of the nine and a slightly interactive car ride accompanied by some brilliant jazz music. You can do only two things in this one, but your enjoyment of the musical, atmospheric ride through a misty town is guaranteed.
