Don the spiffy buckled hat of Hopkins - a Puritan novice witch hunter. 

Keep the crowds (and Father Horatio) appeased with a steady stream of heretical souls, cleansed by raging flame.

How will history judge your actions? The hero of today is oft the villain on the morrow...

-Burn as many Witches to death as possible on the Pyres placed throughout the village to earn Purification Points.
-If left long enough, Witches will escape. Escaped witches will reduce your Piety. If your Piety reaches zero, game over!

Controls & Tips
-Use the arrow keys or W,A,S,D to move about the village.
-Use P to pause the game.
-Stand close to Pyres to start a fire and accelerate fire growth. The Pyre must have wood (and a Witch!) to start a fire.
-Witches cannot escape while the Pyre is burning. Fire will diminish over time if left unattended.
-Burning a witch to death or letting her escape will consume all wood from a Pyre. Gather extra wood from convenient Wood Piles at several locations.
-Make sure to keep each Pyre stocked with wood so you're ready to start each fire when the Witch appears.
-Righteous Speed power-up will help you cover more ground.
-Holy Fire power-up will increase all active fires, and light any valid Pyres.
-Chain together several completed Witch burnings to increase your Purification Point multiplier.
-Banish the Goat Warlock for bonus points!
