After making it it half way through Square Woods, a ghost wearing a red hat and holding a book comes charging at him.
"BOOOOOO!!!" he yells as he starts attacking Owen. Owen successfullty defeats him and learns that he was cursed. Gaston joins Owen on his quest but is cursed to attack at any moment.
The game is a 2D platformer with some 2.5D elements meaning the character can only move left, right, jump and duck. Items are scattered over the levels which can give the player a special ability. The player can also use blocks which are scattered around the levels as ammo or to their advantage, the most common way being to get across lakes and lave pit. Stamps are also hidden in levels which you can use on Miiverse and need to be collected to complete the game fully.
