All stories and images are copyrighted © and registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office, and they are based on the original characters and stories by Bill Shook

Walldo started off as a happy guy who lived in a black-and-white world of comic strips. He just liked hanging out on his local wall, and watching the world walk by.

Suddenly, his uncle from Russia showed up and gave him a mysterious letter, that changed his life forever!

Later, he became the reluctant leader of a wacky group of defenders of the Galaxy!


Now you can play the new version of The Haunted Galaxy, available on the GPT Marketplace. The Haunted Galaxy is based on stories and characters from “Beyond the Walls: Adventures in the Galaxy”.

Here is an example of gameplay:

You can choose to either start the game by searching for treasure, which will help you fight the armies, and find a secret way out of the Haunted Galaxy. Or, you can choose to play one of the main characters.

You have the option to choose between several characters, each with their own unique abilities and weapons. Please choose your character:

  1. Walldo: The team leader with a Cosmic Ray Gun, a funny sense of humor, and a recent discovery of his alien heritage.
  2. Shadow Cat: A beautiful cat woman ninja warrior with the Super Scratch ability.
  3. Ava: A brave, tall, athletic Amazon Space Ninja warrior with a Star Staff as her weapon.
  4. Birdhead: A rare bird with the ability to change size and speak thousands of languages. His weapon is the Super Peck.

Who will you choose to embark on this quest to find treasures and protect the galaxy from the Pigman army?

My answer: #3

As Ava, you stand on the brink of an alien forest filled with mysteries and dangers. The path before you leads deeper into the unknown, guided by a mysterious light in the distance.

What will you do next?

  1. Follow the path towards the mysterious light.
  2. Explore the area for hidden treasures or items.
  3. Prepare for potential threats and set up a defensive position.

My answer: #2

As you explore the alien forest, your attention is drawn to a shimmering object hidden beneath a cluster of glowing fungi. Upon closer inspection, you discover an Ancient Alien Artifact, pulsing with a mysterious energy.

You have found an Ancient Alien Artifact! This item has the power to enhance your Star Staff, increasing its damage output against the Pigman army.

What would you like to do next?

  1. Use the Ancient Alien Artifact to upgrade your Star Staff.
  2. Continue exploring the forest for more treasures.
  3. Head towards the mysterious light you saw earlier.

… … (further on in the story):

You take a moment to study the holographic map one more time, paying close attention to every detail. The map shows a clear path westward, with notable landmarks such as the Crystal Falls, which you must pass before reaching the Caverns of Echoes. You also notice smaller paths branching off the main route, which could serve as shortcuts or lead to resources that might aid your journey. However, these paths could also hold unforeseen dangers.

By memorizing the landmarks and considering potential dangers, you feel more confident about navigating the terrain ahead. The knowledge of where you’re headed and what to expect provides a strategic advantage, allowing you to plan your moves carefully and avoid unnecessary risks.

With a final look at the surroundings of the Whispering Willows, you:

  1. Begin your journey towards the west, heading for the Crystal Falls, with the map’s guidance fresh in your mind.
  2. Take a short rest, using this time to mentally prepare for the journey ahead.
  3. Check your surroundings for any useful items or hidden paths that might not have been marked on the map, just in case.

My answer: #1

Later in the game:

In the hidden alcove, you find a rare crystal artifact resting on a natural pedestal, its glow inviting yet mysterious. This artifact pulses with an ancient power, similar to the energy of the stone from the Whispering Willows but unique in its properties.

You have discovered a Crystal of Insight. This artifact offers the ability to see through illusions and reveals hidden paths or truths that might otherwise remain obscured. It’s a powerful tool that could be invaluable in navigating the challenges ahead, especially in a galaxy filled with ancient secrets and deceptive enemies.

What will you do next?
