Description of Adventures of Beetlejuice: Skeletons in the Closet

From MobyGames's description of this zany action game based on the cult horror movie: "A truly bizarre game which was rather popular at the time. It's an action game of sorts, in which you play Beetlejuice himself and you have to kill (?) all kinds of skeletons with weapons -- you start with the ability to shoot a single loogie at the skeletons and, by collecting bonuses from destroyed skeletons, you may get additional loogies per shot or completely different weapons. Also, after you hit a skeleton, your friend Lidia has to collect the skeleton's remains with a vacuum cleaner; however, if a skeleton find Lidia she becomes imprisoned in a cage and you have to release her by hitting another skeleton and taking a "lightning bonus" from his remains. Another nice touch is the worm, which comes out of the playground every now and then and, should it hit you, kills you."

In short, Beetlejuice is a fun arcade game that is very repetitive, but strangely grows on you after a while. It's also notable for being one of better games from Hi-Tech Expressions, who's known for producing lackluster action titles based on cartoon and movie licenses.

Another game my wife wouldn't stop playing despite my obvious wood.

DosBox 0.74 + Win7 (64 bit) - Works Great

The description says it all - simple - fun - amazingly SMALL digital footprint! LOL - It's a fun game - especially for kids maybe who want something engaging and not overstimulating - younger kids or anyone else who just wants to try a novel game. Not my cup of tea really - but worth having handy for occasional sillyness. :)

Just so everyone knows, I am now to level 160, and this game is coded beautifully because it never glitches and it is extremely well-thought-through.

Love this game. Used to play it on the old computer from '93. I have been playing it but can't see any foreseeable end, as I got to level 116 and they stop giving passwords for multiples-of-10-levels at 100. which is blammo, if you wanted to know.
