This game is part of the Museum
This game was made by Hishnak

Samhains the ancient Celtic word for Halloween. I did a little research to come up with some facts about Halloween and thatís what I based my game on. This was originaly made for the KA halloween compo.

Its about a man who gets accused of being possessed by a spirit but hey doesnít buy in and tries to escape from the druids who want to burn him. The only way he can prove his innocence it travel to the druid temple and put out the sacred flame.

The game includes
-Custom movement
-Three magic books to pick up
-Five differn't types of enemies
-Original Graphics

Looks awesome. Anyone would think you made this especially for me ;)
Posted by The Chris Street 30th October, 2005

Heh, easy as pie to finish, but I enjoyed it :) Front page time I think.

Nice! Thumbs up. Looks like I've got a strong opponent in the halloween compo. I got to the level with those endless pits and lava thingies, and then that annoying TGF sample bug happened, and I had to quit =/

Very nice little game,but TOO short and easy.At least a boss battle in the end
Posted by Jason Dudie 30th October, 2005

Good game, I enjoyed...
Posted by hishnak 30th October, 2005

Yea, I know its really short but I had basicly one day to make all the levels and thats all I could do. I would have added a boss battle but I ran out of time.

fantastic pixel art and very solid gameplay. I liked the dark atmosphere too. But i think it needs something to make it stand out.

Good pixel art with okay animations. The game looks good, but it didn't really have any depth to it. Like andy said, it really needs something to make it stand out.

Seriously this is one of the best click games ive played for awhile that i actually enjoyed and got into, Awesome Retro-ish pixel art you have going, gave me a NES/SNES/Old Skool DOS games feel and i was loving it! Very different how you used the arrows for Springs and turned out the better.

All-In-All fun little game, one of the better Click games ive played for along while, my type of game Good Work!

Awww guys, it gives me the warm and fuzzies to hear all these positive comments. Thanks.
Posted by hishnak 31st October, 2005

Wow yea somethings mest up...
Posted by AndyUK 31st October, 2005

i liked the music too.
Posted by alibaba 2nd November, 2005

a pretty game with good music. fun to play - my only query is with druids chasing after somebody who is supposed to be possessed by a spirit! it is my understanding (i may be wrong) that on Samhain, the druids tried to contact the dead for predictions and offered them animal sacrifices, so the idea of chasing spirits away seems strange. Anyway, a good game, if not a littel short.-worth downloading
Posted by hishnak 2nd November, 2005

hahaha, yea, I don't proffess to be some sort of scholar on the subject but from the info that I got if they did find someone who was possesed they did burn them. Whatever, the game isn't really that historicaly sound. thanks for the comments though.
Posted by alibaba 2nd November, 2005

yeah its good. i really like the graphics style and music
Posted by Metal Maiden 3rd November, 2005

fun little game with nice graphics. I was really hoping I could have fought that druid at the end though
Posted by steve 3rd November, 2005

this is excellent!
I recognise the music though... from castlevania on GBA?
Posted by Noyb 3rd November, 2005

Fun game. Just wondering, is there any point to the coins?
Posted by hishnak 3rd November, 2005

Lets see...I think one track came from castlevania and the rest from Golden Sun for GBA.
Posted by AndyUK 4th November, 2005

I own Golden sun but didn't recognise any of those tunes, lol
Posted by hishnak 4th November, 2005

I believe they were from the golden sun the lost age.
Posted by AndyUK 5th November, 2005

oh, i don't have that one.
Posted by Justin 6th November, 2005

Ok I loved this game but I had to vote stun n run. If it weren't for that this would have gotw.

Anyone know where I could download the bullet.mfx. I'd like to look at the code for this since it's there. It looks really good.
