In the game, the player is Peter and you battle ghosts that are trying to land on bottom of screen in one of three spots. All the player needs to do is shoot them (shmup mechanically). The ghosts come down one at a time and can switch between the three spots with the two inbetweens. They move faster as the game progresses.
