As in the olden days with this release for the Nijmegen fair finally Mr. Ghost gives up its secrets . Find out what happened to him as you progress through the game. Great music, graphics and level design await. Do you stand a ghost of a chance to reach Enma while going through 7 levels full of frightening creatures? Will you find out what has happened to Mr. Ghost? Only one way to find out. Say "I ain't afraid of no ghost" and download the translation patch, which includes amongst other things:

  • full translation of the game, title and level names
  • turbo mode
  • reinstated extra bonus level which wasn't accessible
  • improved screen splits
  • minor other improvements
  • details on how to access easy mode

Next up: Androgynous

Looks like a great, high quality translation!

You guys who have never played Mr. Ghost, definitely do, it’s a great game! Smile.

And looking forward to the Androgynous translation (which is a game I have never played).

p.s. The guys from Pixelated Audio did a podcast on the music of Mr. Ghost, it’s very interesting, and quite a sad story about the composer who left so much legacy behind despite dying way too young.

If you are interested in some background information on the game and its makers:
The webpage also has maps and info on how to get through the game.

You may need google translate though :-)

Thanks for the kind words! If people are interested in the soundtrack for Mr. Ghost:
apparently at least the first song is longer than we got in the msx game as you can hear on the egg music section of yuureikun. I wonder if originally the intro demo at one point was planned to be longer...

I always played Mr. Ghost because it's wonderful music and did't noticed there has to be a story behind...
Now I'm did´nt get the catchy tune out of my head, but thanks for the additional infos.

This was one of the last games I played on floppy disks in the MSX 2 golden age. I applied the patch last week and it worked like a charm.
