 +You move Harry around the colourful mazes and the aim is to eat up all of the garlic, while avoiding the four ghosts that are trying to catch you - unlike Pacman however, the ghosts move quite slowly but they can glide over the walls, so you need to use tactics (and the holes in the walls) to avoid them! Level 4 is night mode, where you do the same but cannot see the walls of the maze. Eventually you will reach the level with Dracula, who has to be killed with a stake. 
  
-We have now managed to preserve a copy of this game (which has meant we have had to fix some bugs to get it working).  You move Harry about the maze eating up all of the garlic, whilst 4 ghosts try to catch you - unlike Pacman however, the ghosts can glide over the walls, so you need to use more tactics to avoid them!  +The original cartridge is copy protected and includes a clone program to create backup. This program makes one working copy of the original cartridge before deleting itself on both the original and the copy. So you only get one backup. High-scores are also saved to a separate file called names.
  
- +Compware also listed a program at the same time called [[qlwiki:Hungry Harry]] - it is unknown whether these were both the same game.
-We have only tried the first level and there are no power pills either, so it looks as though you can only run away from the ghosts. +
