The Casper brand is now owned by Classic Media, which helped make the game with software developer and licensee Mindshapes.

In Casper's Scare School: Costume Closet, kids have to use shape-recognition to correctly dress Casper in a variety of Halloween customes.

James Peak, education consultant for Mindshapes, said: "Short-term memory is a critical element of mental agility. We wanted to create a game using a character that children know and love, and Casper the Friendly Ghost is the perfect character to engage children in this scarily good app."
