Ghost Grab is a puzzle game where you shoot a beam of light at ghosts to chain them together before popping them to score points. It's simple to start with but soon gives way to a frantic score-attack challenge with it's unique way to score points.

The longer your chain of ghosts, the bigger your score multiplier. But leave it too long and risk getting killed yourself. As things progress you must destroy increasingly difficult waves of enemies.

You can earn power ups to your weapons like the EMP shockwaves or rocket-boost. Choose how these powers are applied differently in each of your runs. You can also fine tune your robot's abilities: hit points, speed, battery power and more, with over 100 possible combinations.
