The game's programmer, Damian Yerrick, coded everything in 6502 Assembly language. The game's art style is reminiscent of River City Ransom.

The game starts with this text:

Let me tell yinz about Halloween.. In 1985.. The things I saw and creatures I battled.

My name is Donny ~
Donny Johnstown ~
at least that's what my friends call me...
Cause I'm Donny...
From Johnstown.
I just moved here to
Possum Hollow and I'm
the reason this town
is no longer haunted!

I saved everyone from
the haunts that were
destroying this town.

This is how it all
went down......"
