For those who enjoy runner-style platformer games on the iPhone, one of the most popular releases to emerge recently in the genre is Ghostie by Pinc Studios. Ghostie is a challenging and captivating iPhone app that will likely leave players addicted for more.
The plot of Ghostie revolves around a ghost who has recently died and is on a quest to “rest in peace”. Unfortunately, the ghost must overcome enemy ghosts and many other obstacles in order to reach his goal and finally be able to rest in peace. One favorable aspect of the app is that players can customize the ghost in many ways in order to create a unique character. This ability is rare to find in a mobile application and adds to the appeal of Ghostie.
As with the vast majority of runner-style games, Ghostie involves a character who moves across a screen at a set pace as players tell him when to jump in order to overcome obstacles. The app incorporates many popular elements of runner games and although the genre does not appeal to everybody, those who do enjoy this style of app will derive great pleasure from Ghostie. Unlike some games that are played on the iPad or iPod touch , Ghostie has excellent controls that allow players to effectively maneuver the ghost without difficulty, which is an essential component of these types of games and is unfortunately rare.
Another advantage of Ghostie is that it is incredibly challenging and will require a significant amount of time invested in order to beat. Although some players may prefer short games that can be finished in one sitting, those who enjoy challenging games that require hard work and much time before they can be beaten will find Ghostie incredibly appealing. In order to add to the length of the app, updates are regularly being released, adding new levels and challenges. This is incredibly advantageous compared to many games which are completely forgotten about by their developers and never updated after their release.
One additional facet of Ghostie that is incredibly enjoyable is the appealing graphics and media. The graphics of Ghostie are an absolute work of art and are significantly better than most mobile games. This alone is reason enough to play the app simply to enjoy the artwork. Additionally, in order to accompany the amazing graphics, Ghostie also contains an appealing soundtrack as well.
Overall, Ghostie is an incredibly enjoyable game with nothing but favorable aspects. For those who enjoy runner-style games, one of the best games in the entire genre is Ghostie.
