A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Play notes. Fight ghosts.

When a fabled disaster causes ghosts to spill into the human world, an apathetic reaper and a fearless young girl with magical powers must use their musical abilities to fight ghosts and save the world from an endless night.

SPOOKULELE is an action-adventure combat game where you play a pair of ghost reapers and use musical abilities to fight ghosts.


SPOOKULELE features innovative gameplay, especially in its music-based combat system, where you cast devastating spells by playing certain combinations of notes. The game also offers the opportunity to switch between the two protagonists, Spooky and Haru, in order to access their unique combat styles and abilities. 


Whether you’re investigating the jazzy, multicolored French Quarter or scouring the debris-ridden, abandoned areas of New Orleans hit hardest by ghost attacks, exploring the city offers the chance to take in the arresting visuals that give this world vibrant life.


With dangerous ghosts with their own unique abilities haunting the streets of New Orleans, you must use your melee weapon and powerful spells to “reap” the ghosts and save the city!

This is GREAT! The fighting style is cool, graphic looks cute. I wish there was a keyboard control tutorial, kinda confused on what I'm doing.

Hi there, I am DragonExplosion and I am a Youtuber. If you like my videos, please leave a like and subscribe at my channel.

This was a really cool action-packed horror game about how 2 different characters meet up and work together against ghosts in a world that has become different due to various supernatural elements. I enjoyed playing through the game and I loved the visuals for the game. 

The world is well-designed and the abilities of the characters are well-designed as well. I loved the voice-acting involved in the game as it really adds on to the amazing storyline that the game has and definitely makes the player feel more hyped up as the game progresses. I enjoyed figuring my way out of each scenario and fighting the monsters strategically to complete each fighting level. 

The game also had an amazing introduction scene and I also like the fact that each character has their own unique abilities and weaponry that compliment each other. The boss battle scene was definitely a really funny and interesting scene and I really enjoyed the comedic interaction between the main characters and "Pumpkin Head".

Some issues that I faced in the game was that I didn't know what were the controls for the game as I was using the keyboard so it took me quite some time to figure out the controls before being able to complete the demo for the game. Also, when you run out of mana in the game (If you fail the spell twice), starting a new game does not allow the player to regain mana for some reason. Moreover, during the boss fight, I dunno if it was supposed to be a glitch or not but when I am using the reaper while running, he bounces non-stop in a really weird way during the "FLOOR IS LAVA" attack. (No idea if it is a bug or not) Most of the issues I had with the game was mainly the boss battle part so creators can skip to the part where I fought the boss and just watch how I fought it. (Bugs and finding weird ways to beat the boss)

Thank you for reading my comment and I will definitely be looking forward to the full game if it comes out. Would be cool if there was a multiplayer/ co-op mode for the game too. Would be pretty insane.

Amazing game the combat style , the mechanics , the story and these guys are so cute
