Developed by David Crane and published by Activision in 1984
From one of the greatest movies of all time, to one one the greatest video games of all time, Ghostbusters on C64 is one of the defining titles for the system. This was one of my all-time favourite C64 games, so creating a QHD recording was a real no-brainer!
David Crane took the carcass of a game he already had in development – Car Wars – and introduced elements from the movie, fleshing it out to create the game we have today.
Taking the concept of running your own Ghostbusters franchise and letting you loose in New York city to bust spooks to earn cash is as brilliant as it is simple. Everything from the graphics to the SID rendition of Ray Parker JR’s classic theme tune just gels together to create something magical.
