AFTER 30 YEARS, A GHOST FROM THE PAST RETURNS!

 

Avenging Spirit (Phantasm in Japan) debuted in arcades in 1991 and found modest success amongst the popularity of beat 'em ups and fighting games.  It would arrive on the Game Boy® a year later with a limited physical release in the West.  Although it was an action platformer, it also had a unique game mechanic - possessing your enemies!  How you proceed depends on who or what you possess, be it a gangster, a guru, a vampire, or a robot.  A young man's life was taken away by gangsters kidnapping his girlfriend.  With the help of her father, this little ghost must get into the spirit and end the crime syndicate's plans and rescue Gennifer before it is too late!

MEDIA REVIEWS

 

Your own enjoyment of the game is going to come down to how much you enjoy the character possession mechanic, but we found it to be both addictive and deliciously dark.

Overall, though the arcade version of Avenging Spirit is still fun, the Game Boy port is far more enjoyable, and you would probably be hard-pressed to find someone who prefers the arcade original to it.

- Louis Smith

Hardcore Gaming 101

 

Its appeal lies entirely in its inventive ghost-possession mechanic, which was the kind of slick idea that felt way ahead of its time when it was first released 20 years ago.

- Lucas M. Thomas

Avenging Spirit isn't easy, so don't expect to go "ghost to coast" right away. It's definitely fun though and it will entertain all intermediate players until they're mere ghosts of their former selves.
