Description from the packaging.

Bubble Ghost: Supernatural arcade-action that'll blow you away!

Please don't shake this box. You'll wake the dead.

Within the confines of this cardboard crypt rests the Bubble Ghost- a phantom destined to travel the halls of an eerie castle, forever blowing bubbles. And the only way his wandering soul can be put to rest is if you can help him blow his fragile little bubble through 35 trap-laden rooms or the macabre mansion, without it popping!

But who is this "puffergeist?"

Legend has it that the Bubble Ghost is the long-winded spirit of Henrich Von Schtinker- a mad inventor who met his end while testing his now infamous "electric bubble pipe" in the bathtub.

Obviously, his death came as quit a shock!

But a bigger jolt was yet to come. For on the night following Von Schtinker's demise, a nightwatchman reported seeing a mischievous little spook floating amidst the catacombs of the inventor's derelict old castle "…blowing a shimmering bubble in front of him!"

And he needs your human hand to complete his "breathtaking" journey.

It won't be easy. Around every corner, in every creepy room, lurk fiendish "techno-traps" just waiting to burst your bubble. Spikes, knives, pins, needles, scissors, shears- plus a host of other gadgets, gizmos and ghouls- are situated in the most inconvenient places.

You'll not only need dexterity to gently negotiate the bubble past all of these prickly situations, but ingenuity too. For many rooms in this multi-level madness hold secrets that keep you from "blowing it", eh, so to speak.

Accolade's Bubble Ghost. See how a single bubble can raise one's spirits!

In Bubble Ghost you must help a mischievous little spook blow a delicate bubble through a castle filled with diabolical devices and demons.

The Bubble Ghost can blow himself red in the face trying to puff his bubble down tricky hallways.

Is our ghostie taking trumpet lessons? Remember, many of the 35 rooms contain secret passageways and "mysteries" that might help you save your breath.

Should the Bubble Ghost "blow it" and burst the bubble on an object, he'll give his human accomplice a shake of his ghostly fist.
