App description: Haunted LCD is a throwback from the good old days when LCD games reigned. In Haunted LCD you are trying to defend your house from being overrun from the evils of the night. Armed with only your trusted flashlight you must keep the monsters at bay till the morning comes. Don't get too comfortable as your batteries won't last the night. When they get too low you will be powerless against the enemy in the dark. Fortunately you just installed the Super Charger 3000. It will charge your flashlight batteries in the blink of an eye.

I've been enjoying the old Game&Watch style games... but this one seems to be totally missing any background art.

I agree, it is too plain. Some background like a moon, and some indication of a ground is needed.

Agree, looks weird on an iDevice. I cannot find words for it's artwork, i guess it looks cheap and with a big lack of talent. Even for an oldstyle game could've used some color

I gotta give him bonus piunts for including the "shadows" of the characters movements even when they aren't occupying that space. That's a really nice touch and totally realistic to games from that era.

As far as gameplay is concerned, I'm not sure what a video would do for you. Either you get these kinds of games or you don't. Just by looking at the screens I can tell that the Ghosts and Skulls will move toward you horizontally and you, the "hero", will have to be there when they reach the last space in order to zap them with your flashlight beam. I would asume if you're not there, they make it into the house, you get "scared" and lose one of your lives. As the level progresses, the ghouls will move faster.
