Developer: SFB Games
Format: Android, PS Vita
Genre: Platform, Puzzle
If you've always felt that Slimer was the real star of Ghostbusters, then there's something arriving on PlayStation Mobile today that could well tickle your spooky fancy.

Haunt the House: Terrortown is, essentially, a possession simulator for PS Vita and PlayStation Certified Android devices (Xperia Play, HTC One X, etc.). We suspect it's designed for those who find Ouija boards a little 'old fashioned'.

Haunt the House: Terrortown is a port of a Flash game released by developer SFB Games back in 2010. In it, you are cast as a ghost, who must float around a creepy town and attempt to put the frighteners on the local residents.



Using his post-mortem mojo, Haunt the House: Terrortown's ghostly protagonist can possess a wide range of inanimate objects.

By shaking furniture, rattling pipes, tinkling piano keys, and making gramophones chase their owners, you can empty a house of its occupants, cackling ghoulishly as you go (or not... whatever).

Visually, Haunt the House: Terrortown's bisected buildings and bold, colourful backgrounds echo the backdrops in 2012 iOS hit Beat Sneak Bandit.

However, the environments - which include a theatre, a hospital, and a clock tower - are, rather fittingly, inspired by locations used in classic horror movies.

If you live for the sound of shrieking townsfolk, set aside £2.79 / €3.49 and download Haunt the House: Terrortown for PS Vita and PlayStation Certified Android devices from PlayStation Mobile.
