Spook

Packaging for Sinclair QL Spook Cassette Inlay for Sinclair QL Spook

Spook was one of the better implementations of a Pacman clone and was written by Damon Chaplin. it is very similar to MCrunch, but closer to the original Pacman concept.

Featuring excellent graphics and background sound (which can be turned off) and the game is controlled by cursor keys or cursor emulating joystick.

The original version was copy protected by means of a colour coded card pasted to the inside of the cassette inlay, and you had to specify the colour and letter at a specific co-ordinate given on screen (which was not easy!).

This has since been removed.
