Stickman Ghost is a stick man that must run through different levels, avoiding obstacles and enemies to survive. You can jump over gaps and duck under blows. There are also objects that you can use as weapons against your enemies, such as stones or sharp axes lying on the floor.
In certain parts of the game, there is a point where the player must fight by pressing buttons in a specific order. If he presses them out of order it is an automatic loss for him resulting in having to repeat that section again until he does it right or admits defeat.
