Golly! Ghosts! Goal! (found PC puzzle game; 1996)
Golly! Ghosts! Goal! (ゴーリーゴーストゴール Gōrī Gōsuto Gōru) is a Japanese puzzle game for PC developed and published by Namco on March 29th, 1996. It is a spinoff of the light-gun arcade game Golly! Ghosts! and is essentially a clone of Color Lines with very few non-aesthetic differences.
The main goal is to connect 5 or more balls of the same color in vertical, horizontal, or diagonal lines and erase them. If you get jammed by the colorful balls that appear one after the other and the balls get stuck, it's game over.
The game is considered rare, and despite being listed on Bandai Namco's game catalogue, the game can not be bought commercially or downloaded online.
