Definently worth the cheap price of $5 it's currently listed at.

A strategical game where your target is to scare everyone until they run away in fear. You control a set of ghosts with different abilities & properties, you unlock ghosts as you progress and can upgrade them in different ways.
It gets increasingly difficult and you need to use your wits, imagination & curiosity to solve the different little puzzles on the levels in order to get a human to do the tasks you want it to do :)

It challenging enough for not get boared, makes you laugh your pants off and overall great game. So, if still don't own it, I suggest you to buy one right bloody now.

I've had hours of fun playing this game and I was very glad to see it on steam so I could enjoy replaying it. At its heart the game is resource management, you manage your ghost's power's from a shared meter, which you can increase by scaring mortals, which in turn you manage so that they are capable of being manipulated to fulfil your goals while providing you with enough power. However, despite that sounding somewhat dry, the game is wholeheartedly fun. Your ghosts are fun, their powers are fun, the mortals are fun and terrifying them out of their wits is always fun!

The game does have pop culture references that are probably a bit out of date now, and the graphics won't even manage to stand up to those of a modern tablet but the game is emersive, challenging, funny and intuitive to control. I will confess that I probably am wearing rose tinted glasses when I play this game, and probably shouldn't give it such a glowing review, but I'd still recommend it ... just because it's fun!

Beautiful game, certainly a masterpiece of the twenty first century.

Graphics:
Beautiful game, I can't praise it enough. The makers did an outstanding job creating the graphics. There's so many elaborate details, it's mesmerising! I really feel like I am being spooked by the ghosts when I play the game, it's atmospheric.

Sound:
Musa Ali, the sound effects in this game make me stay up all night. They sound so realistic and they really terrify me. It's amazing how spooky it is.

Music:
The music is absolutely great. It's so original, there are a lot of different songs and they're all extremely spooky!

Overall:
This game is one of the best games of all time. It's simply... THE BEST!
10/10

Ghost Master is an absurdly old game and kinda reminds me of the Sims of it was crossed with Evil Genius. You are a Master of Ghost, they are yours to control. You have spesfic locations that require your hauntings and the peramaters change between locations from 'Scare everyone' to 'Scare no one and compleate this objective' Each ghost has a spesfic 'fetter' or requirement to place, some are as loose as Inside and Outside, some are more spesfic like Electrical, Violence, Murder, Corpse, Child, meaning you have to better adapt for each situation, levels are replayable with ghost you have unlocked, the story is alot of fun and this is one game that truely deserves a sequal. You should stop reading and be buying this right now.
