Ghost Lantern: (Tangoranima)

After perishing you find yourself in 8-bit heaven where you must reap the fallen Buddhas in search for the legendary Ghost Lantern. Beware their are jealous-reapers and that yikes demon Oh Gwad! The only escape is Tangoranima Tag where you sever the heads of fallen Buddhas statues and drop them at the back of the mysterious space temple.


Align the swirly head to one of the statues in the game map and tap space several times.

The screen should wobble and the head should obscure the character.

Look at Budhas third eye, thats where your character is centered and navigate to behind the temple in heaven and a strange house in hell to place the severed head there.

Do this for all the fallen Buddha statues and you will open the door to the next world.

You get a point each time. You can trade this point for money and buy upgrades in the store or you can follow the story and escape, find the fangs or hire a bodyguard bog dude.

Weirdest Video Game Ever...(I Don't Even) | GHOST LANTERN

Wierdest Video Game Ever, AGAIN! GHOST LANTERN.

I updated the download and fixed the strike file issue! Thanks for your feedback.

I seem to be having the same problem as gregormat. When I try to launch this it just comes up with the message 'RPG Maker 2003 RTP is not found.' Any help would be super appreciated. This games look awesome and would love to check it out.

I can't seem to be able to run the game... It says RPG RT but it says i dont have RPG Maker 2003 meanwhile i have it installed...

How long is this game?

There are two parts in the game, heaven where you start and then hell where the game ended. You can either skip almost all battles and just stack up your urne and get to the next stage and do the same there to finish the game which should take about 30 minutes or 1 hour to finish (if you are unstoppable!) or you could spend time with some of the side stuff like helping a lady off a cloud, finding "diekiru" or stealing stuff and selling urne to get better weapons. There are also some additional characters that can help you fight for some of your Urne. Then the game would probably take up to 2 or 3 hours to finish.

I beat the game a few time both ways but apparently most people complained that the game was difficult to understand and the map was confusing (it wraps around both ways like in Yume Nikki games) .

Please comment if you get stuck, I might make a walkthrough.

Quick Tips: for the flying character you can only land on black floors and you need to press space relatedly when you match the swirly head on screen to the one in the map to get the head thing over the character, then you avoid others to get to the back of the castle. You can cash in your Urne for money in the Urne bank and buy equipment to fight and become stronger but you need Urne to advance to the next stages of "Tango-Ranima".

Some features where left unfinished so there might be a few bugs, It's barely playable as an RPG, I advise that you find a clever way to avoid combat at all costs, the level grinding is brutal.
