Ratings and Reviews
Charming and entertaining
This is a fantastic little game. It’s a simple, casual puzzler wrapped in a spooky story about a ghostly rocker who is being bullied by another ghost, and calls in a human ghost hunter to get his guitar back.
The game involves exploring haunted houses, solving simple puzzles, trying to find the secrets, and snagging mischievous spirits along the way. The game is easy enough that kids will be able to get to the end of the levels without getting frustrated, but the added layer of finding the secrets will provide challenge for the adults who play. And the environments are fun to explore.
Overall, the Phantom PI is just straight-up charming. Though it’s got a theme of ghosts and haunted houses, it’s done in an entirely kid-friendly way, with humor and a light mood. (If you’re looking for survival horror, this isn’t it.) I found it to be very engaging and fun. Thumbs up!
Good but too many gameplay bugs
I like this game a lot but have had to replay levels too many times due to bugs. Some of the achievements don't activate (how can I be on level 13 and not have the achievement for completing level 1?) and I have had to restart levels because I put down an item but couldn't pick it back up again. I've just finished level 13 and I can't find one last item which I'm pretty sure is bugged also. I still recommend the game but be warned you'll run into some bugs. On the plus side I've never had it crash. The graphics, music and controls are excellent.
Smart, original, and fun!
I love this game, it's addictive. BUT, there is still a bug at the end of level 17 that prevents moving on in the game. This bug was mentioned back in July. Why wasn't it fixed with the latest update? I plan on replaying levels to find out every detail of the story but I'll be very disappointed if I can't finish. It's like reading a book with the last two chapters missing. Please fix this. It's still a great game but it would be perfection if I could finish it. Thank you.
