The se days it seems to be getting harder and harder to find developers who are prepared to risk their necks, not to mention a great deal of cash, by releasing genuinely new ideas into a fickle marketplace. OK, so they might be pushing the envelope when it comes to graphics, but as far as gameplay is concerned, it’s surprising the number of envelopes that get lost under the fridge. Enter Ghost Master, a spook ’em up sim from Oxford-based developers Sick Puppies and one of the most innovative games at E3 this year.
It’s impossible to put Ghost Master into any specific gaming genre as it takes bits and pieces from practically every arena, bar FPS and sports. 'The beauty of Ghost Master is that it appeals to both hardcore and casual gamers,' claims Sick Puppies founder Greg Barnett. 'God game, resource management, sim, . strategy or even adventure gamers k looking for something a little different will love Ghost, as will players of The Sims looking for something with a little more edge to it. Even non-gamers who like reality shows may enjoy it, and almost certainly those that don’t like reality shows will too! It’s the sort of game everybody should try because you just never know who it will appeal to.'

Whether it will appeal to fans of The Sims is yet to be seen, but it should certainly appeal to those who hate them: this game is about as anti-S/m as you can get. Ever wanted to drive those bland little simmy characters insane? Scare them out of their three-piece-suite loving minds? Bugger up their relationships and send them screaming into the night? Well that's what Ghost Master is all about.
You play an undead civil servant, sent to the town of Gravenville to sort out some problems of an other-worldly nature. You play through a series of scenarios which revolve around haunted locations all titled with suitably ghoulish puns - things like Deadfellas, Train Spooking and Ghoul. Interrupted. Each of the locations contains various mortals, be they a family, mafia bosses or scantily-clad young women in a sorority house. The locations will also have a number of 'local' ghosts, which are the spirits of people that have died there. The object of the levels is to use your team of up to eight ghosts and try and scare, manipulate and trick the mortals into helping you lay the local spirits to rest, usually by solving some mystery surrounding their deaths. Once they're at peace, they’ll join your team.
The Unusual Suspects
To achieve your goals you’ll have to resort to a lot of general scaring.After all, where would ghosts be without fear? The more you scare people, the more plasm you'll build up. which allows you to cast bigger and better hauntingspells. Plus it also allows you to gradually upgrade your ghosts to the level of superghost. There are between 50-60 spooks in the game, which are split into 21 ghost 'families’ including Frighteners, Disturbances and Reflection, and they have some 150 haunting powers between them. Most of the ghosts can only inhabit or be 'bound' to the mortal world in certain areas, such as electric objects or murder sites. Certain ghosts such as poltergeists can even bind to children, so that everywhere the child goes strange things happen and the parents start getting that 'Perhaps we shouldn't have called him Damien’ feeling.
The various ways you can scare people and manipulate them look like being one of the most ingenious aspects of the game. You can make rooms go cold or possess a toaster, both of which are child’s play compared to the ultra-scary stuff such as making walls bleed or creating hordes of ghostly insects.
However, there are some threats to your ghosts in the mortal world. These include sceptics, who do their best todecrease belief in the paranormal, and student witches who will try and ward them off. But you can fight back, and a well-timed ghastly apparition at a student witches’ seance will have them chewing their black nail polish off. It’s all deliciously evil.
There are two things that there aren’t enough of in gaming at the moment, and that’s innovation and humour. It doesn’t seem a lot to ask for, but Ghost Master looks like it’s going to deal us a healthy hand of both. This could be the start of a ghoultiful relationship.
Thereâ€™s nothing particularly scary about Ghost Master. While itâ€™s true you employ the services of various creepy spooks and sprites in an attempt to complete 15 hauntings, itâ€™s more Ghostbusters than ghostly. While it has elements borrowed from role-playing games, The Sims, and other management strategy games, at its heart itâ€™s a relatively simple puzzle game. While itâ€™s incredibly playable and entertaining for 10 or so hours, itâ€™s also limiting and linear.
You command ghosts and need to use them to complete a series of scenarios, from scaring the occupants to releasing ghosts trapped in the environment. Each of your ghosts has a set of powers and can only be â€œfetteredâ€ to specific earthly objects. Powers cost plasma, and thatâ€™s generated by human fear. Thereâ€™s no balancing of resources in each scenario, since you donâ€™t actually â€œspendâ€ plasma. Instead, each deployed ghost reserves an amount for its powers, and once youâ€™ve used up your reserve youâ€™ll either need to scare some people to increase the plasma reserve or remove other ghosts from the haunting.
And in general, the game isnâ€™t particularly challenging. While thereâ€™s a lot of information to look atâ€”bios of mortals in the haunting detailing their fears and suchâ€”you can pretty much complete each scenario by taking the recommended batch of ghosts and employing them in their very specific ways. Thereâ€™s no sandbox mode or random scenario generator to add some longevity, so once youâ€™ve blasted through the hauntings, youâ€™re pretty much done with the game.
You should be able to uncheck the 'FPP Zone' field. Start from zone 16. Astro 25 r20 cps. I don't know why Motorola decided to do it this way, but you can't just take any zone in the middle of the codeplug and make it FPP or non-FPP.Starting with a codeplug that has all 16 zones set up for FPP (meaning you also have 128 personalities - yikes), the procedure to get to a single FPP zone is as follows:.

Despite these limitations, itâ€™s still a blast to get through. There are superb production values throughout, with appropriately bouncy music that channels Danny Elfman with a serious Theremin fetish, and thereâ€™s clever writing with a lot of terrific jokes. The hauntings are all parodies of various movies, with names â€œPoultrygeist,â€ â€œFull Mortal Jacket,â€ and â€œDeadfellas.â€ The voice actingâ€”particularly that of the narrator that introduces each hauntingâ€”is very over-the-top in the right kind of way. And thereâ€™s just something undeniably entertaining about watching those wacky sorority girls or frat boys get scared out of their wits. They wander around in a daze, blathering on in Sims-like giggerish.

There are a lot of terrific details. The interface is simple but functional. The 3D camera gets in the way, due in large part to the combination of small rooms and a lack of cutaway walls, but the ability to possess mortals and track their movement through the house gives the game a particularly voyeuristic thrill. Itâ€™s a sharp-looking game, with lots of colored spell effects and suitably silly ghost animations, with incredibly good cartoon ghoul sound effects. In the end, the game is a good example of a great implementation, complete with solid production, of an only marginally interesting idea.
