Ghostbusters (1990)



Quote
"Buying games in the early ’90’s was tough. Nowadays we have instant access to the internet, so it’s easy to spot a game on the shelf, Google search reviews, and make the decision to purchase. Back in ’92 all I had to go by was the box art and the few screenshots provided on the back. Being a huge fan of both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters, it only made sense for me to seek out the Genesis titles those franchises provided, and boy did I strike gold.

Unlike NES fans who were stuck with the often derided Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters, SEGA fans were graced with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist and Ghostbusters, by SEGA and Puyo Puyo developer Compile. I picked Ghostbusters up used at a store humorously named “Gamebusters”.
Booting the game up for the first time was an aural delight – a near perfect 16-bit rendition of the Ghostbusters theme song! the game that followed was excellent, featuring fun platforming, light RPG elements, and a spooky soundtrack." - Barry

Ghostbusters: The SEGA Soundtrack



Quote
If you don’t have fond memories of playing this game as a kid, well… we feel bad for you.
From the colorful ghosts, an original storyline, upbeat music and even a boss battle that looked lifted from Little Shop of Horrors, this game had everything (but Winston).

My Life with SEGA ain’t afraid of Ghostbusters



Quote
It’s been years since Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters graced the silver screen on June 8th 1984.
Has this relic of cross-promotional tie-ins aged just as well as the movie, or should it be cast aside along with Extreme Ghostbusters?

Developer Retrospective: The winning combination of SEGA and Compile



Quote
Believe it or not, Compile also developed Ghostbusters for the Genesis/Mega Drive!
While Nintendo fans suffered through lackluster Ghostbusters games developed by Activision, Genesis/Mega Drive owners enjoyed an action platformer that continued the story of the original Ghostbusters film and featured inventive bosses, catchy music, and challenging gameplay.
Compile also handled the Master System port of Ghostbusters, which was based on Activision’s NES version but thanks to Compile, featured improved graphics and gameplay.

It might have something to do with that first-person Ghost Busters game I've heard about. "Spirits Unleashed" I think it was called.

May be.. No gameplay shown but it'd most likely first person view game.

I just hope "Rookie" is playable again, or at least have a story mode like the Ghostbuster game he's from.

Social games are only popular for sociable people. Not much so for those who prefer single-player.

There's also single player who use social media to post his photos of his game he completed / collected.
Because if he kept the photos only on his smartphone and somehow his smartphone / memory card became broken / corrupted, he could lose all of his photos.
