What's New in Version 1.1.5
We updated Ghostbusters: Paranormal Blasts' location-based settings. Now nothing will get between you and the monster that's living under your bed...
Awesome! With a few flaws...
It's great! But... I have some suggestions. There's a fairy game I have downloaded before, and the app uses the camera to sense the level of light in the room and shade the fairies accordingly. So if you're in a dark room, you can't see the fairies, and if you're in a bright room, the fairies are really bright and colorful. It might make the ghosts look more realistic if you include that in your app (unless they're supposed to be glowing). I was also wondering if we could have different weapons to choose from, and if we could make our own avatars, instead of selecting already made ones. I am NOT Egon; my name is Kelsey. Also, I know my iPad can detect which way the screen is facing; there's an app that's an electronic level. What if you're app could utilize that feature, so I'm not seeing the trap in mid-air. Point the camera down at the ground, and I would be able to see it then. That would also make the app more realistic. If you try to do all of these things, I will give you a 5-star rating.
PS: Anyone heard of Danny Phantom? What if he got captured by the Ghostbusters? :P
A real review 👻
I'm a big Ghostbusters fan, so I expect a lot from a game. This one is pretty good, though not without minor flaws.
Great sound effects!
Intuitive controls that work well with the game concept.
No internet connection required so if you're in a "dead zone" (no pun intended... Riiight) you can still bust some ghosts.
Now the bad (and they aren't too bad) 👎
1-No built-in location backgrounds. No matter the "location" it seems to always change to augmented reality camera.
2- Almost impossible to play if you are in a moving vehicle. If the ghost is behind you and you can't turn around, you can't do anything about it.
3- REPETITIVE. Almost all ghosts go down with the same strategy. The lack of background doesn't help because if you are sitting in a room, you bust the same ghosts over and over to the backdrop of your room.
While there is little adventure and mainly just wrangling, it's still pretty fun for a few minutes here and there. Worth a look.👌
Only wish each level had a background that matched it I.E. If I'm in the library I should be in the library from the 1st movie, or a library in general, not my bedroom or living room! That's about it until I play more! UPDATE: after installing iOS 8.1 the game crashes when you try to do a mission!
