Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Despite the title, the town of Brimstone is definitely inhabited, chiefly by a wicked Sheriff and his captive damsel. You get to rescue her, while pocketing valuables. Lots of padding, GAGS monsters, occasional bad spelling, no puzzles of note, and a sick prurience surrounding the damsel's abuse. Given its flaws, it's a surprisingly cohesive world, with a past revealed by tangible evidence rather than exposition.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

SynTax
Ghost Town is a standard level game of 88 locations, including several pseudo-mazes, and quite well programmed apart from the fact you can't score full points due to the over-weighting of some of the treasures that you should be carrying at the end.

However, it suffers, as did Deena, from several 'Cheneyisms' - basic grammatical errors and punctuation, spelling mistakes and typos. Some more notable ones include two different spellings of prospector in the introduction, paths which 'twist an turn', a location 'bounded buy a deep canyon', a '12-guage shotgun' and a bottle of whisky which must be spelt 'whiskey' if you want to do anything with it.
