ZX SpectrumCrash! (Aug, 1990)
Woooo! I bet that scared you? Yeh, another cute cartoon adventure. I’m a real sucker for these, you know. Blinky's Scary School is fab. You play the part of Blinky, a little ghost with big boots on and star pupil of the Scary School! Your job is to rid the castle of all the ghost proof defences set up by that rascal of a ghostbuster, Red Laird McTavish. To do this, various objects must be collected and dropped into the cauldron to cast the magic spells.

The C64 version looks very swish indeed, and it doesn't have the control problems of the Spectrum version either. Super.
ZX SpectrumComputer and Video Games (CVG) (Jul, 1990)
Controls are a little difficult to get used to, but apart from that the Spectrum version of Blinky's plays well and looks great.
Atari STComputer and Video Games (CVG) (Mar, 1991)
This cutesy platform romp puts you in the shoes(?) of Blinky, a ghost who is out to stop the threatening, ghostbusting activities of Laird McTavish. With it's cutesy graphics, addictive gameplay and attractive price, this is a very good game indeed.
ZX SpectrumYour Sinclair (Jul, 1990)
All we've got here is just another platform-and-ladders jobby, splashed with colour and cutsie baddies. It does look very budgety, but then we are down in the basement after all, so why bother looking too closely? Nope, a tidy little number methinks. (And, boy, is he cute!!)
Atari STST Format (Dec, 1990)
Great for kids, if less riveting for adults, Blinky is graphically excellent, and well worth its budget price.
Commodore 64Commodore Force (Oct, 1993)
The game's a fairly standard platformer given a little extra polish by some nice graphics and decent toons. As it is progress is just too irksome to keep you interested. Silly innit?
Atari STASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Oct, 1990)
Wer behauptet, daß Gutes seinen Preis hat, wird sich eines Besseren belehren lassen müssen. Zeppelin Games hat dies wieder einmal eindrucksvoll unter Beweis gestellt. Bei einem Preis von sage und schreibe 35 Mark kann man bei der Anschaffung des Programms sicher nichts falsch machen.
Commodore 64Commodore Format (Sep, 1993)
An arcade adventure with a ghost for a star, a school for the location and no surprises.
Atari STRaze (Jan, 1991)
The sound and graphics are identical to the Amiga version, and subsequently very good. But unfortunately the gameplay is just not up to scratch, even for ten quid.
AmigaRaze (Jan, 1991)
Some lovely, vivid graphics, reminiscent of Code Masters' Dizzy series. The screen is full of super little characters, all cutely animated. It's a pity the gameplay is very shallow, requiring little strategy.

Jeśli lubisz tego typu gry, Blinkys Scary School nie powinna Cię rozczarować.
