Memorise a sequence of numbers and then say them back. Why? Well, GHOSTS, that’s why. Ghosts will get you if you don’t. They’ll put a slime in your face.

Ghosts (Amstrad Cassette 50 Game 34)

This game is called Ghosts? Wy is is called Ghosts you ask? I see by looking at the list of things in the instructions that you can’t eat that Ghosts are just one of the three elements you shouldn’t go near. Why not call it Poison? Or Spines?

Well it’s not called Poison or Spines because it’s called Ghosts. So just shut up and play it.

Another poor Pac-Man clone, very much like Maze Eater from this very same compilation! Why do you need two clones of the same game on one tape Cassette 50? Why?

Ghosts. OOOOOoooooOOOOOOOOooooooo. Spooky.

Somehow I’ve gone and got myself trapped in a house with an evil ghost (although the instructions do later claim that, depending on the difficulty level chosen, it is evil on a sliding scale of be ‘spine chilling’ to ‘almost friendly’. An almost friendly evil ghost).

I’ll tell you why I’m NOT in this scary haunted house. I’m NOT here to try and have a rude time with the ghost, like Steve Guttenburg in the film High Spirits where he is desperate to get his bits covered in spooky Darryl Hanah’s ectoplasm.

No. That’s not why I’m here. At all. Honestly.

Let me out.

Ghosts. Woooooooh! Ghosts are scary! Is this a scary game? Am I going to do a little wee of fear in my pants when I play it?

No. Because this game doesn’t involve anything supernatural at all. it just involves you remembering a string of numbers and typing them back in. I cut the video below short, but naturally of course I remembered  a sequence of a thousand numbers. I am Rain Man.

And that’s all I have to say about Ghosts.
