Atari's Haunted House was one of the first games I bought for my Atari 2600. Looking at it through rose-coloured spectacles, it's amazing how atmospheric and spooky it felt to play a game that mostly just consisted of a pair of square eyes and some trademark 'Woody' white noise.

Atari has revived the franchise for its 30th anniversary (30 years, holy crap I really have been playing games for a long time) and will be bringing a new Haunted House game to the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii this Halloween.

Picking up the story of the mysterious Graves Mansion some 30 years after the original incumbents spookily disappeared, the new game has had a bit of a cartoony makeover but hopefully will retain a smidgeon of the atmosphere the original game had.

You can find out a bit more about the game by visiting the official website here.
