Genre: Platform, Puzzle
When you think about it, being dead isn't all that bad. Assuming the afterlife exists in one form or another, you could come back as an ethereal spirit, and have the power to scare the living daylights out of passers-by.
That's the scenario you find yourself in with Haunt the House: Terrortown. You're a cute ghost who is expected to rid several locations of people by possessing a dazzling variety of different objects.
These include furniture, musical instruments, toys, and even dinosaur bones. You can possess an object by tapping the X button when you're close by, and once you've done this you're presented with a range of options, allowing you to move, rattle, or perform special moves depending on the object you've chosen.
Although it's limited in scope and replayability, Haunt the House: Terrortown is enjoyable and charming enough to make you forgive its shortcomings
