How to Play
Move around the graveyard while avoiding & shooting skeletons. Use your coins to purchase gun upgrades. See how long you can survive.
Starting the Game
Tap the green and white START button at the bottom of the game’s welcome screen.
To the left of your character there is a green button with a golden arrow on it. After you have played the game and collected coins you can enter this area to buy upgrades.
Your web browser automatically stores your longest survival streak and purchased upgrades.
Use your mouse left click button and drag your mouse around the screen to move.
Your character will automatically shoot at the closest skeleton.
Tap the screen with your finger to move.
Controls & indicators
The upper left corner of the screen has buttons to pause the game and control game sounds.
At the top center there is a meter which shows which percent of the skeletons you have killed.
Your health is shown in the top right. You start with 3 hit points.
An icon on the screen shows where a treasure chest containing gold coins is. You can move in that direction to collect the chest and gain more coins.
Most skeletons drop coins & some skeletons drop pickups which you can grab.
In the lower right if you have a high-powered assistant weapon available an icon will appear. You can select it to enable it.
If almost all the skeletons have been cleared from the level a purple indicator will show where the last skeleton is located.
The goal of this game is to survive as long as possible without getting hit by the skeletons.
Try to stay in constant motion to make it harder for skeletons to trap you.
You can use tombstones and buildings to block skeletons.
Be careful with being too close to the boundaries of the graveyard as more skeletons can come from any direction at any time & you want to be able to leave yourself multiple ways out.
A virtual joystick appears on the screen showing your general movement direction.
Try to keep your mouse cursor near the center of the screen as it is easy to accidentally move the cursor offscreen out of the browser if you do not watch where it is & then you lose control of your movement.
If you lose location of your mouse or character control then release the left click button, re-center the mouse on the screen, press the left click button and start moving again.
Most skeletons are white and are fairly weak, only taking a shot or a couple shots to defeat.
Colorful skeletons are more powerful than white skeletons.
Purple skeletons run faster than white skeletons.
When lime green skeletons are destroyed they leave colorful ooze on the ground which harms your health if you run into it. This ooze also slows down any other skeletons which run through it.
Each day is its own distinct battle.
At the start of each day you can choose to obtain a temporary gun upgrade which lasts for that day. These include options like spreadshot, freeze shot, flame shot, and improvements to critical hit rate, attack speed, and attack power.
Between days you go back to your hut, where you can use your collected coins to buy upgrades.
You keep playing day after day with each day getting progressively harder with more skeletons on it.
You start each day with 3 hit points.
If you lose all 3 hit points it is game over and you start back at the first level.
If you lose some health but do not die on a level then you will start the next level with full health.
You retain any purchased upgrades when restarting on the first level.
Coins can be used to upgrade your attack speed, attack power, and critical attack rate.
These upgrades last between games.
The game is suited for people of all ages who like Halloween or simple shooting games.
The game has no adult themed content.
