Controls & indicators
The upper left corner of the screen has a back arrow to return to the welcome screen.
The upper right corner of the screen has buttons for music and sound control.
The current level number is shown top center.
Across the bottom are buttons for more games & follow us.
This game has 15 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
If you make an error on a level you can restart it.
This game offers an unlimited number of continues.
You can’t go back and replay previously beat levels unless you restart the game over from the first level or play the game in speedrun mode.
Your goal is to exit through the level portal.
The portal is only unlocked when you capture the soul of all creatures on the screen (with the exception of the bunny on the final level).
If you capture the bunny you will lose & will be forced to replay.
You must assume the roles of characters in the correct order.
Grim Reaper can move left or right, but can not jump. Other than capturing a soul & taking the form of a body Grim Reaper can not interact with the environment.
The bat can fly, which can be helpful for pushing boxes into position or reaching higher up platforms.
Mice can run side to side & can fit under small areas, but can not jump. If you need to convert a mouse into a bat you will need to drop a box on the bat first to move it down to ground level.
Humans can walk side to side & can jump, but can not duck. Humans can only jump one square in height at a time.
You can push boxes into position to:
create a higher platform to allow a falling animal to catch on before making the rest of their jump
reduce the needed jump height from 2 squares to 1
move the level exit off platform onto a lower platform (by pushing it through the box)
Boxes can land on another character.
a box that lands on a bat will move the bat to the ground.
a box that lands on a human will stay in place without impacting the human, though can create a temporary platform to jump across to other humans on higher platforms before collecting the lower human.
The game is suited for players who like room escape platformer games.
While the game has Grim Reaper in it, mentions souls, and has a bright red screen between stages, it does not show any blood or gore when you shape shift.
This game has a sequel, which we also offer. If you enjoyed this game check out Soul Hunter 2.
The game has no adult themed content.
