Ghostwatch was an online game published on the BBC's Doctor Who website. The video game was based on the episode Army of Ghosts, where the ghosts of dead people seemed to come back to Earth, but it turned out that they were Cybermen.

Scenario[]

Level 1[]

Ghosts appeared everywhere around the world. Suzy Monroe wants to go to the Powell Estate in London to film some of those.

She wants to capture some scientific info about the ghosts and tape them on video, so that they can be shown on the Ghostwatch TV show.

To get more information of the ghosts she has a automatic Electro Mag scan on her camera which gathers data on the ghosts.

She films ghosts in a flat, outside near the Bad Wolf graffiti, in the hallway and in front of a gate with several cars behind it. She also gathers data with her Electro Mag scan about four ghosts, one in each location.

Level 2[]

After Suzy has successfully captured ghosts on camera she leaves the Powell Estate and wants to have a look at some viewers' sightings. She uses a GPS map to find the ghosts.

End[]

The ghosts turn out to be Cybermen. A Cyberman attacks Suzy Monroe and says she is going to be deleted. Then the broadcast of the show stops. A sign "technical fault" appears. Winning and losing the game both ends this way.

How to play?[]

Level 1[]

You have to watch out for the ghosts and film them. Use the arrow keys to move the camera.

You need to use the automatic Electro Mag scan to gather data on the ghosts. You scan the ghosts by clicking on them for long enough.

When the green Spectral Data meter fills it means that there is a ghost nearby. The higher it gets the closer you are.

Level 2[]

Level 2

Use the arrow keys to move to navigate the GPS map. When a ghost appears on the map use your mouse to click on it, so that Suzy knows how to find it.
