How to Play this Game ?
Game Description & Reviews:
You take on the role of someone who has died and lost all their memory. You learn that you can manipulate objects and also reverse the deaths of people by traveling back in time to 4 minutes before their death. Thus begins the quest to figure out your identity, but there's one catch... You only have until dawn.
The story flows from beginning to end, and every mystery is solved. The animation is fluid and the characters are all quirky and lovable. Though, it is expected from the writer and producer of the original Phoenix Wright trilogy, Shu Takumi.
The gameplay pits you with puzzle like situations, where you have to use your 'Tricks' to manipulate objects into your bidding. It sounds simple enough, but as the game goes, the puzzles start to become more complex, and each puzzle carries its own split-second decisions with it.
Overall, a great game, though it's not well known.
Ghost Trick: just hearing that title piques your interest, doesn't it?
You play as the protagonist Sissel, and he- hang on. Who is he? No-one knows. He's just died. He's now reliving as a ghost. Not just any normal ghost. A ghost who has the ability to manipulate still life objects- Ghost Tricks. The Ghost Tricks also allow Sissel to travel over phone lines and back in time, to 4 minutes before someone's death.
Back to Sissel. He's just died in a junkyard, and apparently his memory died too. he sees a woman, Lynne, get shot, so he goes back 4 minutes before her death, and that's how the chain of events of Sissel's night begins. He has this huge curiosity of his identity, and he's got until dawn to figure out as much as he can about himself. To do this, he has to make new friends and save them from the brink of death- with his Ghost Tricks.
This game was the best game I had played in a long time, and by a long time I mean a LONG, LONG time. Created by Shu Takumi, creator of Ace Attorney, Ghost Trick lives up to its creator's name- full of suspense, twists, wit, totally awesome and catchy music and high brain power requirement. Fortunately, this game isn't too hard and can be beaten without a walkthrough, though just because it can be beaten without a walkthrough doesn't mean it's hard. Fortunately, if you fail to save a person you can keep going back 4 minutes from their death as much as you like, so you have more time to work out what to do.
Beware- I did mention this game is full of wit, and I mean the funny kind of wit. Depending on what you manipulate, you can create hilarious results and endings. Hours of fun (and sidetracking). Seriously. If you don't play Ghost Trick now, you're missing out on some great fun and enjoyment.
The best reason to play Ghost Trick is for the amazing animation. The 2D sprites move more fluidly than even some cartoons and it's a joy to simply watch characters dance around onscreen. It's probably the most impressive animation I've ever seen in a video game
Ghost Trick is a story of mystery and intrigue that blends fun logic puzzles with the world of the supernatural, making for an entirely new and unique experience in the handheld gaming space. Part adventure game, part puzzle game, Ghost Trick's gameplay will challenge player's brains while its distinct art elements and character designs will deliver the fun.
