How To Play

  • Move Around with WASD
  • Launch Bones with the Mouse
  • Summon Skeletons with 1,2, and 3 keys

Gameplay is simple; kill all enemies in the level, pick an upgrade from the chest, continue to the next level, and repeat!


Halloween is upon you once again! As a Necromancer, you'd think you would be feared, but instead you are belittled for only being able to raise skeletons. It's time you prove to the world that Skeletons are the definitive Halloween monster!

About the game

Spooky Scary Skeletons is a fairly short and casual game. Just have fun watching those little guys go! Upgrade choices are randomly selected, but there are a few powerful ones that require one or more pre-requisites to unlock. Try out a bunch of builds and let me know which one is your favorite!

Some Notes

  • If you're unable to start the game, be sure to try using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge as your browser, as these are tested and confirmed to work. Firefox and Brave are confirmed to not work.


This game was made entirely by myself, TheRetroPaul ( But I could not have done it without starting with the amazing and generous work of some talented creators, many of whom are right here on itch:

cute game, really wanted to love it but the mapsize(too big), the low base movementspeed (just remove those upgrades and set them a little higher to have a satisfying movementspeed) and the challenge wasn't there. The bosses kind of just..melted without me doing anything :< Would also have loved more upgrades c: but it was very cute


I got "Exception Thrown" error.

Would you mind opening up your browser's console and letting me know what sort of message it's giving? I'd really appreciate the help. Otherwise, be sure you're using either Google Chrome or Firefox. Safari and Edge may also work, but other browsers have been known to just not work.

Here you go


Thank you. I've tried myself and unfortunately it seems like it just doesn't work on Firefox. It does work on Google Chrome as well as Microsoft Edge, though I wasn't able to test Safari as I'm on PC. So either try Chrome or Edge and it should work.

If anyone else is able to try Safari or any other browser, I'd appreciate if you'd let me know if the game can run.

Oh Well! but I haven't played it yet. it's fine.


Entered the third room in the brown level the screen started shaking super hard and then game just crashed. Loved the game otherwise! 

Thanks for playing and I'm glad you enjoyed! I believe I've fixed the issue so give it another shot!

The last boss proved to be surprisingly challenging but with 70 arrow bois nothing could stop me from claiming the victory, thank you for the experience.  

Now that's a proper skeletal army!
