Garters & Ghouls Preview

I’ve had a few days now to play through a preview version of Garters & Ghouls, the first original IP that Namco have created for the iPhone. It’s great to see one the the giants of the video game industry developing new games on such a new platform as the iPhone.


The story of Garters & Ghouls is very fitting for the Halloween season. You have been brought back from the dead to fight the Thrum (think multi-species zombies). The game is a dual stick shooter with various weapons and enemies to hunt down. Your goal is to clear each level by destroying the portals and the evil creatures that come from them. You do this through 25 different levels set in many different scenes including graveyards, churches, and various carnival-like areas. There are of course power-ups that can be bought with gold collected from the dead Thurm.


The game itself, while a little rough around the edges still, has done something that most games of this genre haven’t, it’s held my attention. I’m not sure what that says about the game or me, but it has interested me. Could be the garter belts.

Garters & Ghouls is expected to launch right around Halloween. We’ll let you know as soon as it has launched.

In a teaser trailer released tonight, Namco gives us a first look at a new game coming to the iPhone. Garters & Ghouls is the first Namco game specifically created for the iPhone. Their other releases are franchises that we all know and love. Some we’ve loved for 30 years. But Garters & Ghouls is different, it’s new, it’s well, we don’t really know yet. Take a look at the teaser below and let us know what you think it will be in the comments.

Well, it’s got zombies, how bad could it be?
