Introduction

Olli & Lissa: The Ghost of Shilmore Castle is a platform game developed by Ionis Software International (with D&K Software Developments), and published by Firebird Software Ltd. It was released in 1986 for ZX Spectrum, and in 1987 for Commodore 64 and Amstrad CPC.

In this game, you must guide Olli on his quest through Shilmore Castle. There are 8 stages in total, all increasing in difficulty. On each of the stages, there is an ingredient needed to make the potion. You have to avoid various enemies, while making your way to the item needed, pick it up, and make your way back to the cauldron (where Lissa is stirring the brew). You can only move onto a new screen once the particular ingredient you're after has been collected. Sir Humphrey then will tell you the next item needs to be dropped into his cauldron.

There is a time limit for each task, and if you eventually run out time, Sir Humprhrey will approach Olli, and battering him with a broom. The bar graph in the bottom of the screen shows the energy of Olli. The energy decreases each time you touch the enemy. Olli will die when the energy drops to a minimum, if he fall from a great height, if he fall into the water, or if he run out time.

Plot

Amongst the barren heights and rugged rocks of the Scottish Highlands, there is situated Shilmore Castle. The Castle is under threat of being purchased and shipped stone by stone to America by Eugene Port-Cullis the third (Jnr), a mega-millio-naire. Alarmed by this, Olli and Lissa rush to help their friend Sir Humphrey, the Castle ghost, who was somewhat upset by the prospect of forced emigration to the New World.

Sir Humphrey decides that today, Human Beings are only scared by invisible ghosts. You must collect eight ingredients for a potion to make the ghost of Shilmore Castle invisible and save the day.
