Manic Panic Ghost available in Europe

May 15, 2007

I am not sure how long this has been there, but on Sega UKs website they have Manic Panic Ghost listed as an available title under New Releases. It doesn’t have it’s own mini-site like many of the other games do, but you can check out the flyer at the very least (which I’ll place at the end of this post). It does look like it could be a fun game but I really wonder how well the screen is going to hold up over time considering you have to hit it and when it comes to physical games like this one you never know what may happen. We all remember how Nintendo was surprised that their wrist straps weren’t strong enough for certain people – I get the same feeling here. Of course this game has gone through testing so hopefully it will withstand real-world arcade forces.

The Inspiration of Manic Panic Ghost?

March 5, 2007

Saw this in the Trocadero last week, and it reminded me a lot of Sega’s Manic Panic Ghost. The game is called Critter Crusher which is also made by Sega, and is essentially a whack-a-mole redemption game but with a touch screen and a rubber mallet. It was good fun to play, but just reminded me of how much I’m looking forward to MPG.

Sega @ ATEI 2007 – Part 3 – The Rest

January 29, 2007

In the final part of my Sega round up I have got; the kids games which are Mushi King, Dinosaur King and Love & Berry, which to be honest I have not so much interest in, but I guess the kids will love them. Coming soon though, the Love & Berry dancers video! One game I could play all day though is Virtua Tennis 3. This game really does have to be seen because it has some of the best graphics I’ve seen in an arcade, and I can’t wait for the console version of this! Also there was a game on a Naomi cabinet called Asian Dynamite, which if I’m not mistaken is the follow up to, what was called in the UK, Die Hard Arcade. Unfortunately this game was not on free play. Finally there was a fairly original and fun game called Manic Panic  Ghost. This was a touch screen based game, where you had to whack all the ghost with you “wand”. Believe me when I say it really is Manic. Of course my favourite, but the frighteningly addictive game WCCF was there. Shame I  couldn’t get anywhere near it to have a game. I also heard there was a tournament the day before so hopefully I will be able to get some pictures of that off the Unofficial WCCF Forum.
