Ghost Motel 8: Virtual Reality Training

Game Programmer: Istvan Orosi
Art/Animation: Violet-AIM
Joseph voice: XwaynecoltX

Quick Instructions (for more info, look in flash)

"Ctrl" = Attack with Sword
"Shift" = Block with Shield
"up arrow" = jump
"left arrow" = move left
"right arrow" = move right
"q" = change quality for slow computers
"m" = turn music on/off

There are 5 total levels to play, but in order to play level 5, you must collect 20 blue crystals (5 blue crystals per level).

Ep.8 is different because it is a "game", unlike the usual interactive puzzle solving story. Hope you guys like it!

Absent from flash after this was made. Any posts or reviews made by me from May 2005-Jan 2011 was not by me. Somebody broke into my account and made posts without my consent.

Just some notes...

try to avoid using SHIFT as a button in the game. It activates sticky keys. Also, the black thoughtforms were impossible to see sometimes. But besides that, thumbs up!

Good platformer

This is a good platform/jump 'n' run game. It's quite a nice change from the other episodes.

The graphics are very nice and the level layout is very interesting. It's good that I have to go back serveral screens to be able to reach the blue crystals sometimes. This increases the difficulty level of the game a bit. Otherwise it would be too easy I guess.

However, the end bosses are a bit too hard because if they hit me/run through me I am not able to hit them. It's a bit annoying to run after the boss of level 1 and if I get a bit too close to him I got hit and lose energy.

Also, the lip syncing wasn't done that good this time. The voice already finished the text and the speech bubble didn't even show the rest of the text. This should've been looked over before submitting this to the portal.

Yeah the voices are always hard.

Randomizer is wrong.

You can easily turn of the sticky keys request function in the ease of access center of any windows-based control panel. At least, you can in Vista. Oh, and the game was really awesome.

I liked the sidescrolling style of gameplay!

~The Pros~
This game was really, really fun! It was a really fun change from the other interactive style of gameplay that was featured in the other games. The sidescrolling was really fun, and it reminded kind of like a Mario game. I even tried to jump on the guys head, but then I found out that it was CTRL. The backgrounds were definitley one of the simplest, but really well done backgrounds in the series. THe gameplay itself was pretty simple, but it flowed so smoothly that it made up for it. The new song was a complete change since it wasn't a haunted house sort of song. Also, the voice acting that was in it definitley showed some improvement and you could tell that there was more emotion put into the voices. As usual, there was a lot of interactivity since the controls worked perfectly, and they were pretty easy to control.

~The Cons~
Even though the background was really well done, it was still way to boring. First of all, the only difference between the frames was the placement of a tree or plant. It would have been cool to have birds flying by or something along those lines to improve how the background looks. Also, there weren't enough enemies that moved. When you died, and there was a enemy that could shoot on the top level, he would shoot you right away, and you would lose some life.

Overall, I really liked the change in gameplay in this flash. It was a good change from the clicking style. I hope you benefit from this review! ~Review Request Club~
