Monster Ghost Sports Day features the cast of Monster Ghost Academy in a school race between two rival gangs. The eccentric Count Vincentius Nocturno has declared a race in which the leaders of the rival gangs would race against each other in order to win the coveted Golden Candle. Play as either Slurpie (Monster) or Chilly (Ghost) as they race across the streets of Shadow City.
The game is a race against time in which the player has to collect items while moving using the iPhone's / iPad accelerometer. Players can only move left and right while the vertical movement is automated. Obstacles and objects would appear and players have the choice to either collect or dodge them. Certain objects have benefits while certain objects have negative effects.
