There's something sinister happening in the graveyard! You and a friend can help Spooky and Scratchy fight off the forces of the evil Wizard. Pounce on Skeletons, Zombies, and Demons while avoiding the Wizard's spells. Can you get the highest score?

Scratch Bros was made over the course of a few weeks for Halloween 2016. It was originally conceived as a Mario Bros. clone set in a house with two black cats chasing mice. Since actual work didn't begin until late September, the setting was changed to a graveyard to fit a Halloween theme. The game is dedicated to my real-life scratch brothers, Toothless (Spooky) and Hans (Scratchy), as well as my lovely wife, Alicia.

Had a score of 34000

It's pretty fun, looks like it would be cool with a 2nd player (unfortunately I have no friends).

I was a bit sad that nothing happends when the fire ball touches the skeletons and zombies, though !

Nice little game !
