Ghostsweeper - A horror puzzle game inspired by Minesweeper

Hi everyone,
We are making a ‘horror’ puzzle game, inspired by the classic Minesweeper and Find Your Star.
Instead of clearing the entire board, however, you will just have to find a Holy Cross in one of the cells. So how is all this horror, exorcism-like content related to each other in the game’s context?

...Story time!
Lost. All you hear are pleas, voices. You just about make out an undying whisper “Mercy...find the Cross, release us...beware of our sins…”. Find the Holy Cross to release poor souls or reveal their sins and turn them into ghosts. Bad news: The ghosts will haunt you.

Here’s a screenshot of the ‘releasing ritual’

Gameplay screenshot

This is one level of ghost sweeper after playing a few steps.
Numbers show how many of ghosts there are around a tile.
Arrows help you find the key.
Can you guess where is the key?
