GOBBLE A GHOST
PUBLISHER CDS MicroSystems
DESCRIPTION The title says it all - it's a PacMan clone!
CONTROLS Cursor Keys Cursor Joystick
INSTRUCTIONS Do I need to explain PacMan? Alright, briefly then. You guide a small yellow ball with a big mouth around a maze eating dots. Four ghosts chase you and will kill you if you are caught. The only way to turn the tables is to eat one of the four larger dots, which makes it possible for you to eat the ghosts for a short period while they remain blue. Once all of the dots are gone, it's the end of the level and you progress to the next which is a bit faster.
CHEATS Use POKE 30597,0 for infinite lives.
SEQUELS/PREQUELS None. A million other PacMan clones, though!
SCORES RECEIVED Gobble a Ghost was DEFINITELY released before any games reviewing magazines were about. I guess that makes it kind of old.

GENERAL FACTS Gobble a Ghost is also one of those rare beasts - a 16k game! It has only very simple graphics and sounds, but then again so did the original PacMan!
As a conversion, it isn't bad, but it's far from the best Speccy PacMan game. PacMan himself is a little too thin, and there are no "fleeing eyes" when you scoff a ghost, but the maze is faithful to the arcade original even though the highly amusing "intermission" screens are missing.
CDS did a number of other Spectrum titles very early in its life, but then seemed to disappear.
NOTES Gobble a Ghost is fun for a while, but you'll soon be aching for a better Pac-clone. Probably your best bet if you've only got a 16k Speccy though!
