Ghostbusters World is a game introduced by the publisher FourThirtyThree at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 Columbia Pictures, now officially available on Google Play and Appstore. When looking at the name, we can know that the game is based on the Ghostbusters movie, the supernatural comedy of the United States about a group of scientists hunting ghost was produced in 1984 and there is a remake version in 2016. Like Jurassic World Alive and The Walking Dead: Our World, this game uses AR (augmented reality) technology, which allows players to catch ghosts in their house or at a McDonald’s store around where you live. Before downloading the game to your phone, if you do not want to be attacked by the ghost, let find out some interesting things about this game with me.
Join the ghostbusters
In Ghostbusters, after losing their job because investigating a ghostly case in college, scientists studying mystical and supernatural phenomena including Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Egon Spengler formed the Ghostbusters – a service to investigate and handle cases involving supernatural phenomena. They use proton weapons to find and attack ghosts. They later hired a fourth member, Winston Zeddemore. You will follow these scientists to find the ghosts that wander the city, conquer and collect them on your collection.
The game is very impressive with over 100 different ghosts, which are the ghosts that have appeared in the Ghostbusters universe. Just like other AR-based games, you’ll play by moving in the real world, looking for places where ghosts appear and then use weapons to capture them. They can be anywhere, appear anytime, so be ready!
The gameplay is very simple, touching the screen where the ghosts appear to destroy their energy, and then use the trap to catch them. Evil is an object with special powers that humans can not know. No one can be sure you can catch them if you do not have the weapon and trap well enough against the ghost.
Three Proton weapons
Ghostbusters World offers you three different proton weapons that have appeared on the movie such as Boson Caster, Meson Collider, Partical Thrower. Gold and gems are the two main types of money in the game. Gold can be earned by ghost hunting, but you have to use cash to buy gems. Gems are important ingredients in upgrading your weaponry, so you should consider this. I often use original Proton weapons that reduce ghost power, but it’s hard to catch them. The number of traps you have is not infinite, they may appear scattered anywhere on the map or you can buy them from the store.
The power of AR technology
Unlike Pokémon GO, Ghostbusters World uses ARCore framework for Android and ARKit for iOS, which bring a great experience to the players. The ghosts appear on the ground with shadowy effects very similar to reality. Maps of the game use the new Google Maps APIs. Instead of using flat maps like previous games, this game creates another 3D block that symbolizes high-rise buildings that bring a lively feel to the players.
Many interesting modes
The three major modes of Ghostbusters World are typical map-based AR, free-roam gameplay, and structured story mode. In story mode you will move on request of the game, meet the characters and catch the familiar ghosts in the movie. Besides, in Co-op mode, you can create a team of four, use a ghost in your collection and fight the giant ghosts of the game.
