Phantom is a fun little macabre murdery puzzle adventure where you possess objects in a theatre and use them to kill the cast members that murdered you.
In Phantom you are the ghost of a recently deceased actor who was murdered by the rest of the cast from the play you were performing. You may no longer have a body but you’ll make them pay for their treachery with their lives as you possess various objects within the theatre and use them to wreak vengeance.
The way you jump between objects in Phantom is a little similar to the hacking mechanics in the Watch Dogs games. Most of the objects are inanimate, but if you have line of sight with another posessable object then you can jump to it instantly, allowing you to traverse the theatre and possess some more useful objects. Some objects you possess can move in specific ways and you need to figure out how to use them to dispatch your backstabbing cast members in a variety of gruesome ways.
The solutions to the various puzzles are fairly simple, but it’s a fun little game. Figuring out how to traverse the theatre is a puzzle in itself and the ways you murder the cast are hilariously brutal. A great little puzzler that gives new meaning to the phrase “dying on stage”.
