Not satisfied with the ending of Ghost Master? There is an additional bonus scenario with a more "conclusive" finish that you can download. Class of Spook 'Em High is a 144M level that gives you a chance to unleash your veteran haunting force on (you guessed it) a high school. Along the way, you might also earn eternal peace for your haunters.

There is a catch however. The scenario is only for the UK release of the game (although it apparently works with some US versions also). You can find the bonus level with a web search for "bonus_Scenario.exe" (and other Ghost Master related terms).


Some U.S. editions of Ghost Master came with a coupon for a free copy of the movie Ghostbusters on DVD. The offer cost $3.95 for shipping and Handling and expired at the end of 2003.


Has references to popular horror movies like Evil Dead, Poltergeist, Ghostbusters, Sleepy hollow, Amityville Horror or Blair Witch Project. Also to TV shows like Emergency Room.
