Ghostbusters: Bust In Peace

Less an actual game and more a piece of lovingly rendered fanart wrapped in a somewhat interactive narrative, Ghostbusters: Bust In Peace is the pixel-tastic comic crafted by Francesco Muja. Created in three parts, this comedic story follows everyone's favourite iconic Ghostbusters on a series of the sort of jobs they're uniquely qualified for, though it quickly becomes apparent there's something bigger going on behind the scenes. All you need to do to play is click to advance the scene, and occasionally make a choice that determines the way the chapter plays out. Making the right decisions will impact how well you're graded on certain outcomes. So, yes, it's a lot of reading, and, yes, your enjoyment is going to depend on how much you love the hits '80s films, though even if you don't know what to do if someone asks you if you're a god, Bust in Peace is still funny and well made enough to be worth a view. Because it's made of a lot of different edited sprites, not all of the characters and scenery look as if they "go" together, but the panels unfold with great cinematic execution and an eye for detail that gives the scenes a lot of life. Ghostbusters: Bust in Peace is far more funny than freaky as its source material would seem to demand, and if you're in the mood for a satisfying supernatural yarn with a lot of yucks that pays homage to the series in an almost note-perfect fashion, it's well worth loading up for a read.

As a big Ghostbusters fan, both the movies and the cartoon (and I suppose the PS3/Xbox 360 game which is pretty much Ghostbusters 3) series, I couldn't notice anything out of the ordinary with the writing. It reads as good as it would have been if it was official material.

I love the references to the Real Ghostbusters series.

Some of those sprites looked like it came from SNK's Metal Slug games.

All in all, a very fun read.

The police chief is a sprite of the main character of Kochikame, an old manga, and the girl is a main character of the anime Zatch Bell. Fun game, there needs to be more games like these. Still waiting for the sequel of that interactive zombie detective one.

Saviour-V teleports in...

So, that's the name of the manga he's from. Nice catch.

Frankly, I wouldn't want that kind of a guy for a police inspector; if memory serves, he'd concentrate more on hare-brained money-making scams than actually catching crooks.

Saviour-V grins, and teleports out...
