  • Summary: A mysterious agent, capable of becoming a digital ghost, sneaks aboard the Nakamura Space Station. This is where the fun begins: the station is well-protected with its heavy defences, never-ending arsenal of weapons, and mysterious artifacts. It will all have to be destroyed.

    It's probably not going to get the recognition it deserves, but it's one of the best metroidvanias we've played in the last few years. If you like the genre, give it a try.

    A competent and brilliant metroidvania, that demonstrates Francisco Telléz's talent once again. There are some nuances here and there, and the difficulty curve is not always perfect, but it's still a game that should be played by any fan of the genre.

    Ghost 1.0 is a great Metroidvania, with some defects as an irregular difficulty curve and some game design choices that do not always work well. However, the plot is well-written and the gameplay is extremely functional.

    If you've never played "metroidvania" type of games, Ghost 1.0 is an excellent entry point.

    Ghost 1.0 is the top arcade in almost all of its parts. It offers thrilling action and puzzles for thinking. Game experience, which aptly follows the old times with Metroid and Castlevania. It iis just slightly crippled by unbalanced difficulty.

    Francisco returns on the scene with another metroidvania, adding, in order to renew the genre, rogue-like elements. The result is satisfying but imperfect, especially as regards the balance. It represents a shooter inspired exponent of the genre, with a slight irony that lies underneath and involves the player. If you’re a fan, you’d better have a look at it.

    Ghost 1.0 is a great game with a great visual style and interesting story and characters, that has moments of huge frustration because of the insane difficulty increases.

    The game is pretty fun itself. How about some other ghost other than protagonist herself?
    Of course, could be better if more boss fights,

    Of course, could be better if more boss fights, and more places to visit:)

    Less ambitious but much more polished than Unepic from the same author.

I did not like it very much, though it is a good quality indie game. Plot/dialogue is underwhelming, and the plot tasks are very repetitive. Most of the game's actual gameplay is about collecting/applying many items of the same type and surviving security alarms while locked in a room, that become progressively harder, when triggered repeatedly. And puzzles that can become very frustrating because they require too much precision at times. There are some issues with controls too.. Expand
