Posts tagged Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
There are a couple of posts on Kotaku that are well worth checking out. The first is a video that looks at all the rivalries in Street Fighter x Tekken – it will definitely spoil things if you want to see the story set ups and cutscenes when you get the game, but it’s good to check out just why certain characters are teaming up.
And the second is a huge review of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective which is available now for iOS. If you missed out on his instant classic when it appeared on the DS last year then now’s your chance to grab it. Here’s a little of what Kotaku has to say on it: “But Ghost Trick’s real draw is its story, and boy is it a page-turner. I have been monumentally sucked in by this game—I’ve played it every day after work, on the bus, and I regularly put in time before going to bed. I have missed bus stops multiple times simply because I’m enjoying myself so much. Take this as an endorsement: I’ve been blowing off even the highly enjoyable Resident Evil: Revelations just to play more Ghost Trick.” Pretty glowing really.
The Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective App is now available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Previously released on Nintendo DS to critical acclaim, the beloved mystery adventure game jumps to iOS. The game features intuitive touch screen controls for easy play, enhanced graphics in a wider viewing area for more immersive puzzle solving and is fully localised in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
Created by Shu Takumi, the father of the critically acclaimed Ace Attorney series, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective combines his signature style of quirky humor, logic puzzles and an intriguing story wrapped in a unique art style. Players take on the role of Sissel, the ghost of a murder victim who has lost his memory and must solve the mystery of his suspicious demise. Gamers guide his blue-flamed soul through dynamic environments, possessing and manipulating inanimate objects found in the world to solve the captivating puzzles he encounters.
The Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective App is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore. The first two chapters are free with the download of the game. Subsequent chapters will be available in three different packs for £2.99/€3.99 each or £6.99/€7.99 for all chapters through In-App Purchase.
Or buy it, because it’s really good!*

*of course we would say that, but check out the reviews Ghost Trick has been getting:
“This clever adventure game from the makers of Phoenix Wright provides one of the last great hurrahs for the Nintendo DS.” IGN Editor’s Choice – 8.5
“Ghost Trick is one of the most original and compelling puzzle-oriented adventure games to come along in recent years. Nearly every facet of the game is outstanding: the unique gameplay concept and the puzzles you solve, the great characters and dialogue, the terrific animation and visual design, and the strange mystery, full of surprising twists and shocking revelations, whose threads all come together in a memorable and rewarding conclusion.” Gamespot – 9.0
“It’s a completely fresh experience on Nintendo’s handheld, or anywhere else for that matter, and certainly not one you’ll want to skip.” Destructoid – 8.5
“The only thing that gives Ghost Trick away as being from the same creator as the Ace Attorney series is how much heart the characters have. Because of that, we’re hoping this isn’t the last we see of them.” GamesRadar – 8.0
See? It’s amazing! And we have five copies to give away! To win one all you have to do is answer this question and PM me on the forum (and include your name and address so we can, you know, send it out to you). So! In which Peter Jackson film did Michael J Fox play a Ghost Detective?
Closing date for this will be the 17th January.
Brought to you by the creator of the Ace Attorney series, Shu Takumi, you play as Sissel a murder victim who has lost his memory and returned as a ghost to solve the mystery of his suspicious demise.
During Sissel’s search for the truth about his suspicious demise he finds himself in a restaurant. Who has fate gathered together tonight for what could be their last meal? Can Sissel find a way to save them from this evil fate? It’s up the player to possess and manipulate items from the real world and compete against the clock to save their lives.
Using the stylus players will need to carefully choose the path for Sissel to travel, possessing objects in order to trigger the correct item that when manipulated will alter the fate of others and begin to unravel the strange truth about who Sissel is and why he was murdered.
Sissel has another unique ability which will help him on his search for the truth. He can possess corpses and rewind time to four minutes before the victim’s death. Not only this but Sissel can talk to the deceased. Surely they’ll have something important to reveal? With the help of these two amazing abilities Sissel is bound to get closer to finding out what really happened in the hours before his death, as well as being able to save the lives of others.
