Ghost Mania is a fun, challenging, and well-developed puzzle game. For 500 Wii Points, gamers get one of the best falling block games on the WiiWare service.

Ghost Mania is a strong product and a solid addition to your WiiWare library, especially if you're running a little thin on the ground when it comes to puzzlers. The developers could no doubt have done more with the quantity of content, but there's no denying that the content that is here is quality.

Ghost Mania es una propuesta dentro del campo de puzles, muy nutrido en WiiWare, que tiene algo que ofrecer gracias a las peculiaridades de su jugabilidad dentro del sistema de fichas. Pero eso mismo es lo que puede convertirlo en algo muy adictivo o en una propuesta poco interesante, según nuestras preferencias.

In short, it’s a shame that Ghost Mania’s Arcade Mode is being trumpeted as the core gameplay choice for the puzzle title as the replayability necessary for the genre is inhibited by an unfair block generator. Perhaps if the gameplay was as refined and polished as its presentation, we would be talking about a must-have puzzle title gracing the WiiWare. As it stands, Ghost Mania is a diverting but non-essential 500 point purchase.

All in all Ghost Mania is a pretty standard puzzle game with some technical issues that keep it from realizing its full potential. While it has its moments, it ultimately fails to give enough incentive to spend 500 points on a so-so game, especially when there are many, far more competent examples of the genre on the market.

Ghost Mania provides its audience with a charming visual presentation and some admittedly catchy music, but the gameplay experience is subpar, and the puzzles are not all that engaging. While there are bound to be those who are satisfied by this title, it's certainly not going to distract most gamers from their favorite examples of the genre for long. For all of its positive aspects, Ghost Mania fails to instill that "one more round..." feeling that the best puzzle games provide, and this download is destined to haunt your WiiWare collection as the grim and lonely specter of what might have been.
