Grabbed by the Ghoulies on XBL

Rare's first Xbox game joins Xbox Originals

The next release in the Xbox Originals download line has arrived this morning in the form of Grabbed by the Ghoulies, the first Xbox game developed by Rare which even it admits sold bugger all.

Game director and Banjo man Gregg Mayles explains: "For all those discerning games connoisseurs who somehow managed to miss out on playing Ghoulies the first time (and I'm sure there must be a few million of you somewhere), I highly recommend you spend a few lazy evenings (or a lot if you're rubbish at games) inside the Baron's delightful Ghoulhaven Hall.


"Imagine a game you really like and then visualise Ghoulies as a stylish haunted house version of that. So, if you like Halo, pretend that the main character is Master Chief and the hilarious DJ Mummy is a terrifying Covenant alien. It works for me."

We bought it, at least. If you fancy saving Rare' blushes spend 1200 Microsoft points (£10.20) on it now.
