Description

Like his father before him, Garret "Ghostfighter" is a professional exorcist, born with a special ability to see all the demons and souls occupying haunted places. On a dark night, he receives a letter from his arch-enemy Mephisto, where this mysterious character challenges and teases him with information about Margo, his long-lost love. Garret embarks on a journey to hunt down his nemesis, hoping to gather enough clues and finally discover what happened to her.

Exorcist is a hidden object game with adventure elements, where the player has to find and click on all the items listed at the bottom of the screen, on locations filled with assorted paraphernalia scattered around the scenery. List entries written in blue are hidden from view, usually concealed behind other scene features, and require some sort of interaction to become visible and available. A few of the items are stored inside the inventory, a sack at the bottom-right corner that can be clicked to show its contents. Pieces of a letter from Mephisto have to be found and reassembled to finish each chapter.

The inventory objects have to be used to solve puzzles and perform certain actions, by dragging and dropping them from the inventory to a logical portion of the scenery. The hint button is a skull at the bottom-left, that shows the position of one of the required items when activated, but takes some time to recharge after use. Mini-games appear on some locations, taking place on a separate screen where the player has to piece together the shredded Mephisto letter, reassemble a scrambled picture, set gears on a lock mechanism, restore a damaged painting, and complete other similar challenges.
