I was into a ghost game back then too...but I can't remember the name now. You assembled a squad of ghosts and scared the crap out of sorority girls, etc. I want to say GhostWrangler, but Google is drawing a blank.
That sounds familiar. I vaguely recall reading a review of it. So...

.. Found it! I went to IMG's historical archives, clicked on Reviews, then searched for "ghost". The game was Ghost Master, published by Feral Interactive(!)

Two more old games I'd like to play again, whether on desktop or mobile:

Freedom Force

I believe both were turn-based during combat so they'd be well suited to a touch interface. They are probably both too obscure now for anyone to really consider porting them, but I'D buy them. ;-)

Thimbleweed Park free on Epic Store until the 7th.

Thanks! I have the iOS version in my backlog already, but I'll pick this up as insurance, just in case the iOS version breaks.

For those who don't know, Thimbleweed is a point and click adventure throwback by Ron Gilbert, reuniting him with other LucasArts veterans like the ground-breaking 8-bit artist Mark Ferrari.
Richard Moss has two interesting interviews with Mark: https://lifeandtimes.games/ (eps 3 and 5.5)

If you could have any desktop game on mobile, what would it be and why?

Why: I enjoyed the iOS version of XCOM (1) so much that I played it all the way through even though I'd already finished it on Mac.
(Plus, I own XCOM 2 for Mac already but it requires Metal and therefore I can't play it until I upgrade my desktop.)

You mean The Swapper?

Boy that would have been an embarrassing error for me to make! Good thing my original post SAYS The Swapper, I edited the post, true, but that was for some typo or other. COMPLETELY unrelated. Nothing to see here. Moving on... :glare:
