It reminds me of Ghostbusters I used to play on Atari. Is it from some newer version?

Alright ya nerds, you want nostalgia? Have some nostalgia:



I wanted so bad to love this game, but the insane difficulty combined with the clunkiest controls ever made it impossible for me to ever finish it  :~(

Oh hey, you even got the accent in "abadía" right! ;-D But nope, it's not that one (La Abadía del Crimen used isometric perspective, with a very similar aesthetic to Fairlight.)

Is this possibly an educational game played in schools in the 80's? Shoot, I think the name was Math Caves or Math Castle?

Yay again.

How about this rather obscure game on an even more obscure platform.

yep, but it also got a home release with a different name. And the anime it's based on, has a completely different name  :=

Nope and nope.

Hint: It's one of the few decent games on a home console which is known as one of the worst.

Is it a 32-bit console?

technically yes, but it's Motoroloa 68k based, so it's more like 16/32 bits.

I'm thinking CD-i, but I don't know any games for it. The video quality looks too good for anything that was cheaper and also using 68k.
