Bubble Ghost: Supernatural arcade-action that'll blow you away!
Please don't shake this box. You'll wake the dead.
Within the confines of this cardboard crypt rests the Bubble Ghost - a phantom destined to travel the halls of an eerie castle, forever blowing bubbles. And the only way his wandering soul can be put to rest is if you can help him blow his fragile little bubble through 35 trap-laden rooms of the macabre mansion, without it popping!
But just who is this "puffergeist?"
Legend has it that the Bubble Ghost is the long-winded spirit of Henrich Von Schtinker - a mad inventor who met his end while testing his now infamous "electric bubble pipe" in the bathtub.
Obviously, his death came as quite a shock!
But a bigger jolt was yet to come. For on the night following Von Schtinker's demise, a nightwatchman reported seeing a mischievous little spook floating amidst the catacombs of the inventor's derelict old castle "...blowing a shimmering bubble in front of him!"
And now he needs your human hand to complete his "breathtaking" journey.
It won't be easy. Around every corner, in every creepy room, lurk fiendish "techno-traps" just waiting to burst your bubble. Spikes, knives, pins, needles, scissors, shears - plus a host of other gadgets, gizmos and ghouls - are situated in the most inconvenient places.
You'll not only need dexterity to gently negotiate the bubble past all of these prickly situations, but ingenuity too. For many rooms in this multi-level madness hold secrets that can keep you from "blowing it," eh, so to speak.
Accolade's Bubble Ghost. See how a single bubble can raise one's spirits!

European box blurb:
"I am an old castle, a ghost is floating from room to room above his soul, light and fragile - like soap bubble. Nothing can obstruct this spiritual being, yet the bubble will burst at the slighest touch. Can you guide the ghost through the castle's numerous traps?
An arcade game with superb graphics, which subtly mixes, humerous animation with fantastic sound effects. Hours or fun and suspense are guaranteed."
