The proper Ghostbusters game

The lack of good taste and memory is sometimes astonishing. Shocking even. I mean, really, how can people get all excited about a video of what seemed like a generic Ghostbuster-ish 3D shooter and forget all about the classic 1984 Activision Ghostbusters action-game? Tsk, tsk… Thankfully though I have come up with a remedy: repeatedly playing the emulated C64 version of Ghostbusters and memorizing the game’s MobyGames entry should: a) enlighten you b) bring back fond gaming memories c) help you appreciate Dali. Then again, on the visual arts side of things, you might also notice that aging 8-bit visuals are not exactly brilliant. Better grab the excellent Ghostbusters retro-remake then. It’s free, it’s faithful to Activision’s opus, it looks good, it plays better than the original and it’s available right here.

  • This is a really great remake, it seems to be a real labor of love. One of my *only* complaints about it is the speed at which the Ghostbusters walk during the busting portion of the game. In the C64 game, they moved much faster than they do now. Besides that, fantastic remake of a great GB game!
