OverviewOverview

Tres-Bashers is a running jumping and ghost-batting game. You play a ghost busting mouse on a mission to find and dispatch ghouls. The retro visuals are designed to look like a Game Boy game and adds to the nostalgic action.

Play involves exploring each area by jumping on platforms. Your flashlight is used to reveal ghosts hiding in the halls. Your baseball bat is used hit the ghosts into oblivion once they are revealed.

This starts with simple one-hit enemies but soon gets more complex as tougher multiple target foes appear. As you deal with them you gain coins or key that grant you access to new areas. In this way you explore and clean up different locations, starting in a local high school teeming with manifesting spirits.

As you progress you not only find new areas, but also gain upgrades that enable you to access new classrooms and hidden passageways, like is familiar in Metroid games. You can use the coins you've collect to buy items occasionally as well.

The result is a really unusual ghost hunting challenge that's full of sentimental retro fun. With 40 different monsters (including jersey devils, mothmen, yetis, apparitions and cassowaries), lots of upgrades (back flip, wall climb, and double jumps) and 7 challenging bosses there is a lot to do here.

There's no difficulty option but you can choose which order you tackle the bosses which impacts difficulty. When you pause you can view a map that indicates locations of monsters.

You can use both keyboard and gamepad at the same time to gain extra options for control. On smartphone you can use the touchscreen like a joystick and buttons.

Blood is disabled by default, but can be turned on if you want. Subtitle size is generally good, although the homemade font is a little tricky to read.

Although you can't save any time, the checkpoints are generous.

When enemies are hit they flicker. When they are defeated the word "Bashed" appears on the screen.
