Lately I have had a recurring problem with the Gobble the Ghosts in the Pet Maze game. I will have the gobble the ghost active, and run straight through one or more ghosts, and it will have no effect. The ghost will not be gobbled. I will not be frozen either, and the gobble-effect has not worn off.
And this is not a matter of me missing the ghost on the edge either -- I will run dead through the middle of the ghost, and nothing happens.
It is not consistent -- sometimes I will go through one ghost, and then be able to gobble the next one..
This happens almost every time I play the game. It is very odd. It never used to happen either.
(FYI, this is my usual pet game, as I can consistently get four points out of it. As for ghost gobbling, I can usually get at least two ghosts off the gobble star -- my record is four. So it is not like I don't know how the thing is supposed to work.)
