Hola chaps!

I hope you're all well, thought I'd show my face again here. Absolutely bonkers last couple of months, with life in general and being driven crazy by our puppy!

Anyway, I thought I'd start a thread here for our latest and greatest, Ghost Mania. I'd love to hear from those of you who've taken the plunge!

Hi-
Can you explain what makes this game unique from the many falling block puzzle games available on the service? It's not clear what makes it unique from watching the game play or reading the description.

Thanks.

Hey eripmav. I'll be reviewing this one, but I haven't had the chance to download it yet. (And may not til tomorrow.)

Is this the same as Spooky Spirits, your iPhone game? Or am I totally off the mark? Again, I haven't gotten to play it yet, so don't think I'm too foolish for asking. :P

Heya CB, I hope you're well. A few points below, essentially it's a 'spritual successor' to Spooky Spirits:

  • Complete New levels
  • Entirely new music
  • New background graphics
  • Additional game modes such as the 2P Party Mode
  • Rebalanced

For only 500 points, it's definitely on my list to get eventually. Looks like a really neat concept.

Cheers WesFX. I'm stunned by CB's review but then if we all liked the same things, the world would be a boring place:)

lol hey a 5 from CB is not bad. This is much higher than a lot of games that have suffered his wrath in the past. You should read the Incoming review or there was some dragon game on Wiiware that also was a memorable one. After reading those reviews you might feel better about this one lol.

THERE... ARE... 4 LIGHTS!

I didn't realise you guys made this game and Pearl Harbor as well (only need The Three Musketeers: One For All! to complete the hattrick, but not sure about that one).

I downloaded Ghost Mania yesterday the second it came out and I love it. I don't understand the mediocre to bad reviews, I think it's a great game and it takes some strategy not to get an enormous stack without a ghost block. I love it and it has gorgeous graphics and music and the multiplayer is fun as well so far. I love it, awesome game.

Cheers Sneaker, very kind words. It's a sub-genre that's really like (British slang, means you like it or hate it) marmite. Some people get horrendously addicted, whilst others just can't stand it:)

I will probably download this later. I was impressed by Pearl Harbour, such a great little gem on the service.

Good to see you back aswell eripmav

There are some big bugs in the puzzle mode I think. Like finishing a level while there are still normal blocks in play.

By normal blocks, you mean ones that are coloured? Cause the grey ones are supposed to be there.

I hadn't encountered that myself. Interesting. Is it happening on particular levels, or just randomly?

Multiple levels, not sure which ones (have to remember ever encountering another one). But I believe the last level of the first world and multiple in the second.

Yeah, that is interesting. I didn't encounter this issue in the last puzzle in World 1. Still working on clearing World 2 but I'll keep my eyes open.

Now in 4-4 is an interesting one. I finished the puzzle with one turn left.

Hey, eripmav, were is Pearl Harbor part 2? Are you guys still making it or is canceled? I loved the original and I want to see more!

Retro Studios, go reboot Star Fox. The franchise needs it.

Watch my creation! http://youtu.be/ZSt_6oFZajk
