LTTP: Ghost Trick (iOS) & Finally Some 999 Impressions?

posted in: Reviews | 0


LTTP or ‘late to the party’ pieces are opportunities for me to catch up and write about games I missed out on the first time around. They may contain spoilers.

After finishing Capcom’s Ghost Trick, I am finally able to articulate why I didn’t enjoy 999. Both titles share adventure game elements and both asked me to retread scenarios but only Ghost Trick fabricated an in-fiction reason to tie everything together.

Ghost Trick is Coming to iOS for N.A

It looks like I spoke too soon! The North American version of Ghost Trick is coming out for iOS today at approximately 11:00 PM EST! It’s a universal app and the first two chapters will be free. The full game will be available via in app purchase for $9.99.

I could not be more pleased by this news. I’ll be sure to pick it up as soon as I get an iPad 3.

I’ll also take this time to address the perception of price for iOS games. I have no problem with paying $10 for a downloadable game with substance like Ghost Trick. It’s what I pay on the PlayStation Network and I’ve paid $5+ for games with much less. Games do not need to be $0.99 to be an attractive proposition for me.

Update: Now with gameplay trailer!

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is the latest piece of work coming from the creator of the Ace Attorney series which I adore very much. I don’t know much about it aside from the fact that I’ll be playing as a ghost named Sissel who’s trying to foil evil doers through the use of manipulation or “tricks”. Yes, there will be puzzle elements.

The screenshots don’t show much gameplay, but it does show off the neat art style.

Ghost Trick is coming Winter 2010 exclusively for the Nintendo DS.
