Ghost House is a great little game and has plenty to offer for even the most modern gamer, a feature you don't find very often in older titles. The only issue that really affects everything is the control problem I mentioned above, but other than that this title is nearly flawless. It has a heaping helping of variety and a difficulty setting the most advanced of gamers will have problems adjusting to. It was actually released in two formats, one in cartridge the other in card, but there is no difference in the actual content. Not sure why they did that either. Regardless, this is a core title every Master System fan needs to own and is a prime example of where to begin if you're just starting out.

N'ayez pas peur, il ne s'agit pas d'un film d'horreur, les personnages de Ghost House sont plus drôles que terrifiants.

In closing, Ghost House was one of my first Sega Master System experiences. Though incredibly difficult, the game didn’t feel “cheap”. I felt compelled to play, and try to get further each time that I died. I’d recommend for anyone looking for a challenge on the Sega Master System.

Cette cartouche est assez attrayante quoique fort enfantine. Le graphisme du personnage principal est en effet stylisé à outrance. Toutefois, les décors sont agréables et signalons la parfaite imitation des toiles d'araignées... Animation et bande sonore sont de qualité et le seul réel point faible réside dans les commandes pas toujours évidentes. Cela à cause des manettes, bien entendu.

Aber nichtsdestotrotz sind beide Spiele ganz lustig und hektisch. Insgesamt bleibt eine Bewertung, die sich etwa um durchschnittliche Werte herum bewegt.

Un platform che vi divertirà solo nei minuti iniziali, poi a causa della eccessiva ripetività vi stancherà presto. Un'occasione persa.

Power Play
„Ghost House“ ist für eine Weile recht unterhaltsam, fällt dann aber im Spielwitz stark ab. Dazu gibt es einfach zu viele ähnliche Spiele, in denen wesentlich mehr geboten wird. Da ist man von Sega Besseres gewohnt. Hauptsächlich läuft man herum, schlägt auf Fledermäuse ein und sammelt Schlüssel auf, um an die Blutsauger ranzukommen. Zusätzliche Extras plus mehr spielerische Abwechslung und Ghost House wäre sicherlich ein interessantes Spiel. So bleibt das Spukstück ein flacher Flattermann, bei dem niemand abheben wird.

Un titolo veramente scarso in tutti i suoi aspetti. L'idea di fondo, cioè quella di cercare le chiavi ed uccidere tutti i "Dracula" presenti, non è male ma l'implementazione lascia alquanto a desiderare. Segnalo inoltre che in alcuni rari casi si può rimanere incastrati tra il muro ed un nemico. Se proprio siete interessati a questo titolo vi consiglio una lunga ed approfondita prova del gioco prima dell'eventuale acquisto

Certo a qualcuno potrà sicuramente piacere, ma se volete un consiglio lasciatelo perdere.

All systems deserve to have one good, scary game, but Ghost House isn't scary OR good. It's just a generic platform game with stupid-looking, cartoon monsters. The ghosts look a lot like Kirby of Nintendo fame, which is not a good sign! Your job is to collect the five "family jewels" by defeating five Draculas. Five Draculas? That should set off some alarms right there. And guess how you defeat these five vampires? A wooden stake? Garlic? Holy water? Nah, you just punch them! C'mon, if you're going to make a game about vampires, you have to at least follow the rules! The game has no atmosphere at all and the music is as goofy as the graphics. Control isn't so hot either. Why do I keep falling through the floors?? Ghost House also features some annoying slow-down, and sometimes it will even freeze up for no reason.
