Scapeghost review

"The puzzles are all nicely done, though with some of them there's a feeling that you've been there before in earlier games like Knight Orc and Gnome Ranger. What a shame Level 9 are bowing out of text 'n' piccies style adventures with this good, but not brilliant game." - Zero Magazine (1989)
