In the Games Corner – MEMORY CARD EDITION – Ghostly Adventures With Caspar

Welcome to a new sister article to In The Games Corner that is about computer games but with a different spin. I have been playing computer games from a very young age and I find that some games when I think of them are attached to very strong memories. So, I thought it would be fun to share memories that I have attached to some of these games as there are a few. I wanted to call this feature Memory Card because a lot of my memories that i have strongly are around the Playstation 1 and there will be a few around that particular card. Today we take a look at Caspar.

The memory card, the object in which this spin off series is named after, if you had a PS1 you may have distinct memories of it. My memory cad was purple and because of the console being pretty new, it had limited saving spaces. I think I still have mine in one of my PS2 games as they came with memory card holders. It is important to be reminded about the memory card for PS1 as it pays an important role in todays story.

We had the Playstation 1 game of Caspar, if you were not familiar with the game, it was a quest where you would explore the house as the friendly ghost to find certain items. Throughout the game you have to travel through vents and pipes to find keys to unlock doors of different colours throughout. You also have to fight off the brothers that are ghosts as they try and stop you get to the keys and solve the problems. It was a fun game for all the family even though it was hard. Other family members got further then me but it was always fun to see where the game would take you.

We used to rent a lot of games from Blockbuster as there was so many fun games to check out, the problem with doing that with a limited memory space meant that you had to be tough with what you would overwrite. The problem with limited space meant that sometimes accidents happened and that is what occurred to Caspar, all our hard work got saved over, it was so sad and also so much work that had been lost. Gutted.
