  • Summary: Ghost Mania is an original puzzle game for players of all ages, offering a new twist on the falling-block genre. Build and expand colored stacks of ghosts and blocks in any direction and any number. The game features multiple single- and two-player modes, including a relaxed and thoughtful puzzle mode, an arcade mode and a variety of two-player modes such as Battle and Enduro. The game centers on the misadventures of Becky and Tim, a pair of ghost guardians who've just lost their jobs. Having fallen asleep on active duty, they accidentally let all the ghosts escape from the Spirit World. Help Becky and Tim get their jobs back so they can return to the Spirit World. Catch the runaway ghosts before it's too late. Expand

    Ghost Mania is a fun, challenging, and well-developed puzzle game.

    Ghost Mania is a strong product and a solid addition to your WiiWare library, especially if you're running a little thin on the ground when it comes to puzzlers.

    Ghost Mania is a puzle game, a crowded genre in WiiWare, which has something to offer, thanks to its gameplay peculiarities. These can make Ghost Mania become an addictive game or a boring one, depending on the user taste.

    As it stands, Ghost Mania is a diverting but non-essential 500 point purchase.

    While it has its moments, it ultimately fails to give enough incentive to spend 500 points on a so-so game, especially when there are many, far more competent examples of the genre on the market.

    Ghost Mania provides its audience with a charming visual presentation and some admittedly catchy music, but the gameplay experience is subpar, and the puzzles are not all that engaging.

    We find the randomness of the block fall - the low spirit count, in particular - can, and often does, leave the game unwinnable. [Mar 2011, p.93]
