Extreme Exorcism is a running, jumping and fighting game set in a series of haunted locations. The graphics are retro but the gameplay has a novel twist. Each enemy ghost you hunt mimics your moves on previous lives.

You play Mae Barrons and myst use supernatural skills to rid houses of their ghostly squatters. You have an arsenal of weapons, from rocket launchers to razor sharp boomerangs.

In the Arcade mode the game is played in rounds in the same location, each harder than the last. Each new round a new ghost appears that mimics your move from the round before. Soon there are a whole series of ghosts chasing you, but if you can remember your previous moves you have the advantage over them.

To clear a wave, you kill the crowned ghost. Each ghost is worth a single point, while the crown-bearer is worth ten. If you're confident in your skills you can knock out the crowned ghost repeatedly to quickly boost your score, but you'll also be multiplying the number of opponents you face in the process.

Engage of the 10 different rooms have a unique hazard. Like the winds on the balcony or the fire in the kitchen. In addition to arcade, there's a death-match and challenge mode.
