Free the Friendly Ghost

What do ghosts and spectres eat? Hot air with pebbles? Cauliflower chocolate? No thanks! Little yellow socks, of course...

Poor Willy, trapped in the castle with nothing to eat, is only a ghost of his former self and needs some yellow socks to restore his powers badly.

Help Max to find every spectre’s favorite food in a truly spooky adventure: meet genies, poltergeists, jinxed pictures and - hooah - the most ghastly of all ghosts: Cruella Gruesome - an apparition with an attitude!

FamilyPC

"This is a sweet colorful little game that should keep younger children happy for hours...Max is an adorable character and the castle's various rooms are teeming with silly surprises. My favorites are the hippie ghost who plays air guitar and a painting full of moving stampeding pigs."

School Library Journal by Kate Houston, March 2000

"Using this educational and fun program, young children will learn counting, color recognition, and sequencing through repetition. Throughout each step of Max's mission to find 12 yellow socks hidden in the castle for Willie the ghost, sentences are read aloud and shown to users onscreen. These sentences can be repeated or stopped with just a click of the mouse...All the while, talking pcitures, animals, and ghosts praise and encourage Max during his mission. Attractive watercolor illustrations provide artistic diversity. Each room provides countless clicking opportunities leading to secret passages, hidden rooms, and Willie the ghost. Children will enjoy helping Max on his mission while learning basic skills."
