Simple, silly Halloween fun, November 1, 2008

Released by The Escapist videogame website as a Halloween treat, Phantom of the Arcade is a sparse, simplistic adventure in which you traverse an abandoned games arcade busting ghosts. Implementation of scenery nouns is minimal, and there is no interaction with the ghosts beyond examining them and giving them the the thing they require, but as a Halloween diversion it works great. Plenty of pokes at videogame culture, some sharply amusing responses to unnecessary actions, and at least one clever lateral-thinking puzzle make this a winner.
