Hop’ in your jumpsuit, strap on your proton packs and get ready for some serious ghostbustin’ action!
With the launch of Ghostbusters, XMG is once again pushing the envelope of mobile games. By paring an exciting augmented reality battle system with location-based features, the gamer is fully immersed in real-time battle against ghastly ghosts. Equipped with proton guns and other amped-up equipment, the player can capture paranormal menaces like a true Ghostbuster. The location-based feature enables the players to interact with their surroundings and catch site-specific ghosts, like library or subway ghosts. The deep social integration will encourage players to get active and involved with friends and other Ghostbuster fans. For example, team up with other Ghosbusters to capture special kinds of paranormal menaces or trade captured ghosts online. While locking up ghosts for good the player will gain experience points to upgrade equipment (ghost traps, ECTO goggles, PKE and GIGA meters and much more) and free the world from the fiendish, ectoplasmic creatures forever!
If you’re at the expo, there’s a Ghostbusters gathering being put on by XMG, Saturday, April 7th.
