Neko Ghost, Jump: Complete Controls Guide for PC

Here’s what you need to know to play Neko Ghost, Jump! on PC in its current form.

Neko Ghost, Jump! is a cute puzzle-platformer with an interesting twist: you’re able to change from 2D to 3D perspective and back. It’s necessary to switch between the different camera perspectives to progress in the levels.

The game is still under development, so some aspects detailed here may change. However, a Demo Update suggests that, while tweaks are being made to the demo’s area, most of the work is on finishing the later levels.

Another core aspect of the game is that you can turn into a ghost, leaving your body behind for a while to fight monsters. If you die as a ghost, such as if you fall off of a platform, you will go back to your body.

Below, you’ll find the Neko Ghost, Jump! controls needed for playing the game as well as some direction as to how to navigate the PC game as a whole.
