Beeline Interactive and Sony Pictures announce development of Ghostbusters game for smartphones
Beeline™ Interactive, Inc., and Sony Pictures Consumer Products today announced the development of “Ghostbusters,” a new free premium game for smartphones based on the Ghostbusters series of films.
The game, which is expected to be available in early 2013, puts the player in the role of a fledgling Ghostbusters franchisee. When New York is once again infested with paranormal activity, it is up to the player’s team of neophyte Ghostbusters to bust ever last spook, spirit, and specter they can find.
Armed with an arsenal of proton packs and ghost traps, players will be able to upgrade their gear by running experiments, capturing ghosts and acquiring all kinds of strange and exotic slimes. Better gear will give the player access to higher paying jobs and more prestige that they can invest back into their business. Players will also be able to upgrade their employee roster to create a crack team of specter stomping Ghostbusters.
“Ghostbusters “ is the newest addition to Beeline’s growing library of “freemium” mobile games which has included Smurfs’™ Village,” “Snoopy’s® Street Fair, Monster Pet Shop™, and Zombie Cafe™. Smurfs’ Village has ranked as the number one top-grossing app in 79 countries and consistently ranks as a top-ten grossing app worldwide on Apple’s App store. “Smurfs’ Village” regularly maintains a user review rating of 4 1/2 stars or higher on the U.S. App Store.
