You guys like quirky puzzle games starring the recently dead which document their attempts to discover the truth about themselves while also saving the still living, right? Of course you do, which is why Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective came to iOS today. Just for you.
Starring the freshly murdered Sissel, players guide the spirit through an investigative adventure, attempting to unravel the mystery of his death with the help of a living girl, Lynne. Unfortunately, everyone around Sissel has a tendency to die, most of all Lynne, so his ghostly abilities of object possession and time travel are needed to steer them in the right direction.
Created by Capcom and lead by Shu Takumi, the guy responsible for the Ace Attorney series, Ghost Trick was promptly ignored in sales when it first released in January 2011. Fortunately, this spunky standout in the Nintendo DS library refused to die quietly (pun intended, yes) and now haunts the App Store in both trial and full versions. $9.99 for a full priced DS game shouldn't be overlooked, especially when the game was a hidden gem of last year.
