You are Cecil Sparks, paranormal investigator, and you’re charged with the task of helping those who’ve passed on keep from having a less-than-peaceful afterlife. Such is the concept behind The Phantom P.I. Mission Apparition, a puzzle-adventure game from Rocket 5 Studios. As Sparks, you explore a large, trap-filled mansion owned by the late Marshall Staxx, a rock star who quickly rose to fame and then died shortly after buying said mansion (Ravensmaw Manor). Staxx is now being bullied by Baublebelly, who is described as a “larcenous ghost” by the developers. Solve puzzles and make your way through the mansion to save Staxx’s hereafter.
With whimsical animation, and a release set for both mobile and desktop devices, The Phantom P.I. Mission Apparition looks to be a good time, and a fun game for puzzle-game enthusiasts of all ages. Rocket 5 has submitted their game to Apple, and it should be releasing for iOS devices soon (no word on a price, yet). The Phantom P.I. Mission Apparition is a game to watch, and you can do so with regular updates being posted in the IGM Forums, where Tim, one of the developers, is quite active.
