Ghostly Matter: List of Weapons

How does your adventure go with Dr. Penderghast?
Fighting aganist zombies, monsters and demons can be a difficult job, but not impossible when you have the right weapon in your hands.
Here is a brief description of all the weapons you can find inside Ghostly Matter, use them well depending on the situation, but remember: nothing helps more than a good shot!

Here is the list that every monster hunter should have.

Polterblast: not bad to start making some undead, very useful for ghosts. Train well with this weapon and then move on to heavy artillery!

Flamethrower: do you like the flambé of demons? So this is the perfect weapon to warm up the situation.

Laser Gun: similar to that used by Ghostbusters, with only one difference: Ghostly Matter doesn't take prisoners...

Teaser: the best version of Laser Gun, with greater damage to ghosts and undeads.

Plasma Rifle: when you get this weapon there is nothing that can make you afraid. Shoot and destroy any entity in a few strokes.

Sonic Cannon: the top of the top, now even the demons have to be scared!

About This Game

Professor Penderghast, the world's leading expert in the capture of ghosts and other supernatural creatures, receives a desperate cry for help over the radio: it's Melvil, his old friend and colleague.
All clues lead to the mysterious Blackwood mansion: an estate located in a remote area of northern Scotland, which is said to be afflicted by a terrible curse. Guide the professor through the darkness and solve the mystery of the haunted house as you try to find out what happened to your missing friend. Solving puzzles, exploring, collecting items and uncovering a mystery form the basis of the game; but there will be no shortage of deadly weapons and explosions, disgusting enemies popping up everywhere and frenetic action.
The first game from the Small Bros studio and developed by single person, Ghostly Matter is a typical metroidvania where mechanics borrowed from graphic adventures combine for an exciting genre crossover.
