"Ghostscape"

This title, released November 30, is the port of the original PC title created by Psionic3D. He details it as "a ‘scary’ point and click adventure where you have to collect evidence of paranormal activity in a spooky old house, find diary pages to reveal the backstory and perform an occult ceremony with 5 red candles to escape the house!!" The game was released in 2008 and 100% created by Psionic. To play the PC version, follow this link: http://www.kongregate.com/games/Psionic3D/ghostscape

It has been updated and altered for the Window's Phone version, but in my humble opinion, I believe for the better. This seemingly simple point and click title has lots to offer, especially a great, creepy soundtrack, some alarming visuals, and a detailed plot. For the achievement and completion hunters out there, it can be 100% completed in under an hour, granted you are skilled at multiple puzzle styles, patient, and can manage your phones' tilt function well.

The story is simple: you are a (insert whatever) with a camera and you find yourself at the threshold of a very spooky house. As you search for clues to what happened their, you will be enticed by stereotypical haunted house sounds, such as creeky floorboards, howling wind, and the occasional distant scream. You are tasked with your camera to collect evidence of the paranormal - but as you enter the house, you are locked in, and must escape the dangerous poltergeist within.

As you progress, the sub-story, or, what happened to the previous owners, becomes more clear as you discover diary pages that will only hint at the happenings. You'll notice blood smears all over the house, and the ending will be expected, but still entertaining and surprising.

Psionic has created a great little game for your Windows Phone, and I highly recommend it.. It's only a few bucks, and even if you want to breeze through it for easy gamerscore and a completion, I guarantee you will enjoy it.

I give it a firm 4 stars. I can't give a max score because I found the duration and difficulty lacking, the replayability near minimal, and some of the puzzles can be redundant.

However, the ambiance, the great frights that will make you at least jump out of your seat, if not drop your phone, and the story are delightful.

This game is a must buy for completionists and gamerscore hunters.

Vr English Whilst I feel this is a decent review. There are several game breaking bugs that you haven't mentioned. The ones that I encountered (and have looked for others having seen it) are: No ghost appearing in cupboard. Unable to photograph remains, too many orbs collected so can't unlock exorcist achievement and finally eyeball puzzle locking or not giving out the item.

porschephiliac In the many times I played it, I have never run across any of those.
