The Ghostbusters pinball experience captures the humor of the movie, while keeping the ball wild. Players explore modes and features that are straight from the original movie including the punch lines as call outs. Ghostbusters is easy to play, difficult to master, and is both dangerous and intuitive – the play is dangerous because the game fights back.
The game features two single drop targets in the middle of the playfield that are high risk but high reward. The game clearly leads the player from one goal to the next. All 5 GHOST lights begin to blink, making it clear that the goal is to hit the GHOST target. Once it is hit, the molded Slimer toy appears and it is obvious what to do next – hit Slimer. After Slimer is defeated, three mode lamps blink rapidly to show what to do next. When players shoot any of the indicated shots, the mode starts. Just like that, the player learns many of the fundamental game rules.
Ghostbusters has many ramps, two different Newton Ball features, a control gate, iconic toys including a color-changing Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and, of course, the movie’s iconic theme song by Ray Parker, Jr. The game features four multiballs and nine modes, including two wizard modes, plus many other features and mini-modes. The Pro, Premium and Limited Edition models each feature unique, hand drawn art packages by Zombie Yeti. They also contain custom speech and narration by Ghostbusters actor Ernie Hudson a.k.a. "Winston Zeddemore"
