Can you Kill the Ghost?
You can but it is extremely difficult because Ghosts are immune to most types of damage. Trust me, it is not recommended and you will waste your precious time trying to do it. Since the main goal of this enemy is to force you to take quick decisions, it won’t take you into a boss battle. And even if they did, it would be the shortest boss battle ever because of their one hit kill power. So, you can’t really get rid of them but you can run away from them.
How to Run from Ghosts
The Ghosts will chase you which will ensure that you move to the next area. Hence, what you should do is know where exactly you need to go. When you see a Ghost, run towards the exit as soon as you can to avoid them. It’s just a way to remind yourself to ‘abort mission!!!’, you know? So, make your way towards the exit and you’ll be all set.
