Ghost Town is a game in which the player searches a Western ghost town for treasure. A player receives points for depositing treasures and bonus points for performing additional deeds.

The game was reviewed briefly in The Dragon #44 by Mark Herro. Herro said that this was the toughest game he'd seen so far in the Adventure series. He also commented that "Scott [Adams] has really outdone himself on this one."[1]
