RETCON GHOSTLY CAPERS - A great game by Lee Chops Stevenson and team is available for the ZX Spectrum

Halloween is fast approaching as more and more creepy games with pumpkins, ghouls and ghosts will start to appear on Indie Retro News for your horror enjoyment. One such game that has been recently released via itch io that fits the horror theme, is MICROCHOPS arcade platformer of 'RETCON GHOSTLY CAPERS' for the ZX Spectrum. A game in which you must dodge the ghosts' devilish traps, find all the hidden items, retrieve the gate key and open everything up before everyone arrives at Super Hero Steve's Retro Convention!

Here's the latest from the website. "Super Hero Steve is your host for the much anticipated Retro Convention, full of exciting computers, consoles and arcade machines. A fantastic day is expected to be enjoyed by all, but there's one tiny problem... the venue is haunted by mischievous and pesky ghouls. They are not best pleased about having their home invaded and are determined to put a stop to the fun. They have snatched and hidden all the awesome retro gear, locked the main gates and thrown away the key. The success of the event up to you now."
