Gobbleman - Remastered Edition

Originally released in 1982 by Artic Computing, Gobbleman would have been a rather familiar game to those who had spent the last few years stuffing their ten-pence pieces into cabinets at their local arcade. Taking influence and inspiration from games on other systems of the time, Gobbleman brought pellet-eating, ghost-avoiding action to the ZX Spectrum.

This lovingly remastered version published by Pixel Games is entirely faithful to the original, offering retro fans and casual gamers alike a chance to experience the same thrill as the first generation of players had back in the day.

This modern version can be controlled through a number of different methods, including using the on-screen controls and using a game controller connected to your device via Bluetooth.

Gobbleman: re-live your fondest memories!

According to the original instructions:

You find yourself in a haunted maze in which you are doomed to roam until you are eaten alive by the occupants – a pack of hungry GHOSTS! You have three lives in which to run from your hosts. To survive you must eat the food. The magic dots allow you to eat the ghosts – for a short while.
Points are scored for eating Food (1 Point), Magic Dots (5 Points), and Edible Ghosts (1st – 2, 2nd – 4, etc.).
Beware however of the Inedible Ghosts - - - - - they eat YOU!
An extra man is gained after every 1000 points.
Special features of this game include personalised high score display and continuous personal score.
