Codex Gamicus

Beetlejuice is a game released for the NES. It is based on the movie of the same name.


Meet Beetlejuice, the "ghost with the most", the bio-exorcist who is expert in getting rid of any unwanted living people in a house. The Maitlands have just joined the dearly departed, and their house has now become the home of the wildly eccentric Deetzes. It's up to you as Beetlejuice to scare the pants off the Deetzes and send them running out the door.

The game is a side scrolling action game where the lead character can run, jump, and stomp his way through the house while collecting "scare points" to help in his ultimate goal. The house is equipped with all manner of traps including incinerating lasers, and even the torches hurt.
