Ghost Town by Virgin/Marex is a side scrolling
shoot-em-up. Basically, it's High-Noon meets Operation
You control a crosshair
and have to blast all the enemies and avoid shooting the
goodies. There are nine levels of enemies to blast
before the game is beaten. The graphics are very nice
and the game plays very smoothly. The western themed
backdrops and buildings are excellently drawn but the
levels lack variety.
never a fan of these types of games, but this is
probably one of the neatest.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used an infinite lives / bullets cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
If you make it through level nine, you are sent back to
the start with less ammo. If you complete it again, the
same thing happens. I completed it numerous times to see
if anything different happened but it didn't. So the
ending is a simple message. At the end of level nine the
message reads 'CONGRATULATIONS!! YOU CLEARED THE TOWN
OF EVIL!! LEVEL 9 COMPLETED. NOW TRY WITH LESS AMMO!!!'.
The game then loops back to level one.
