Help Hannah's Horse is a child-oriented arcade game, described as „a cross between Pacman and the Dizzy game "Fastfood"“.

Story[edit]

Hannah’s horse is ill and desperately needs certain pills in the fields, but there are ghosts (three of them) of some dead jockeys which don’t want her to get the pills.

Gameplay[edit]

Usual collectables[edit]

The player controls Hannah in a maze, collecting pills which lie all of the place.

There are also carrots moving around the maze; they also must be collected.

If Hannah touches a ghost, she dies very shortly.

Some pills, when eaten by Hannah, make the ghosts vulnerable to her touch.

Other items[edit]

There may be other items, which can:

  • freeze the ghosts;
  • switch left and right controls;
  • make Hannah invisible for the ghosts.

Barriers[edit]

There are three kinds of non-wall barriers:

  • Jumps, which can only be passed by ghosts.
  • Wooden gates, which be passed by both Hannah and the ghosts, but only in the top direction.
  • Gates, which can only be crossed by Hannah.

Availability[edit]

Debian: since Lenny.[1]

Release history[edit]

The game has been developed since at least 2006.
