Gobble a Ghost is packaged very well. Looking at the cover, I thought, 'This could be the one.' Boy, was I wrong! The game is no way a close Pacman. It has poor graphics, no fruit and stupid ghosts. These poor spectres seem to like getting into a chain, making them easy prey after eating a power pill. Playability is not very high at all - an average to poor version.

C.D.S. come up with a conventional style game but have failed in reproducing arcade-like moving characters. The maze is well drawn though. The characters are small but quite colourful. The ghosts give no indication that they are about to become invulnerable again after eating a power pill. The game plays quite well but the ghosts don't seem really eager to get you. Sound could have been better used but the keyboard play is quite good with fairly positioned keys that are responsive.
