Freeware Garden: Ghost Wheel?

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.

    They all look nice, and a handful look really interesting. I wonder where that theme came from.

    If Robert Jordan had a ghost writer (or continues to write as a ghost), we would have a Ghost Wheel of Time.
