Ghostbusters is a 1984 sci-fi comedy film about three eccentric New York City parapsychologists. After they are fired from a university, they start their own business investigating and capturing ghosts.
Ghostbusters is a licensed game by Activision based on the movie of the same name. It was designed by David Crane and released for several home computer platforms in 1984, and later for video game console systems, including the Atari 2600, Sega Master System and NES.
Ghostbusters was released by Sega for the Mega Drive/Genesis in 1990. It is unrelated to the earlier Activision game, and is instead a straightforward platform game in which the player takes control of squat cartoon representations of three of the four Ghostbusters from the movie, with the noticeable absence of the only African American character, Winston Zeddemore.
