It’s Slime Time!
There’s something strange in the neighborhood, and New York City has called YOU to get the ghosts out of The Big Apple. Build your own team of Ghostbusters from the ground up as you bust troublemaking spooks throughout the city. Form your own franchise in a local firehouse and answer ghostbusting calls, research and upgrade your equipment and conduct experiments to unlock better gear and tactics. Lead your elite squad of Ghostbusters through floor after floor of a haunted tower, where a malevolent evil deity has taken over, threatening to release negative psycho-kinetic energy into the streets of New York. Conquer each floor by battling the floor boss and capturing any resident ghosts. Then take down Stay Puft, The Destructor to earn special rewards, including Power Cores and rare equipment. Spooks ‘n’ spirits best beware…it’s time to bust some ghostly behind!
- Earn money and slime by capturing and collecting ghosts throughout New York City
- Climb the tower, floor by floor, by breaching slime barriers and battling floor bosses
- Conduct research to upgrade your equipment so you can bust even bigger, badder, ghosts
- Hire new Ghostbusters, and run experiments to improve and expand your franchise
- Experiment on ghosts in your containment unit to discover the secrets to beating them and to unlock new upgrades
- Explore even more of the city by purchasing permits, completing ghost busting missions, or by spending Power Cores

Fun, but Stagnant Development
I've found the game to be true to the spirit of the original movie and fun to play. There's humor and a good story (though the story is unfinished). There are definitely unresolved bugs that can be worked around. Like "Capture x (ghosts)" needing a particular difficulty level. "Hard" or "easy" is subjective, but it is an action game, not a turn-based puzzle. It's nowhere near the difficulty of serious games, but maybe harder than FarmVille.
My main gripe is that development went stagnant in July. After version 1.5, they went from monthly additions to zero. The story is left incomplete. I keep playing occasionally, but I now have $8.5 million saved, all 8 busters, all upgrades, all the research, and enough special equipment to put the best stuff in both slots for all 8 busters. I typically carry 4 damage dealers in my team now, and the hardest ghosts typically go down so fast they don't touch the team.
I really hope Beeline releases a version 1.6 to close out the story narrative. Then maybe they could release a sequel under a different revenue model, one that rewards them financially for keeping development going. If they finished the story in this one, I'd pay for a sequel. Otherwise, I doubt I'll buy anything from Beeline, for fear they'll abandon it before it's finished.
Support? I don't think so...
Well it happened that I was loving this game but then I got stuck in a bug that doesn't let me get slimes in the library, as a good player I contact the beeline support at the begging everything was great they ask for the crash log's and all and I gave to them, and they said they would send to their programmer team and thank me, the only thing that I asked in return it was that they will release an update to fix it because maybe someone is having the same problem...it passed almost a month and there is no sign of any update. Really ridiculous in the mail that the support send to me they could say "hey sorry for the bug but actually we don't care we just want to make the game unbalanced (as not only me but the other players say the same) to make people frustrated to maybe pay 20 usd to have the team of the movie?!?!?! Or the other in game purchases. "
I don't know if beeline is reading this probably not because with this amount of one Stars reviews and they didn't work at all trying to make thing better do I think that this review is going to warn future players who want to download this game...BE AWARE THAT THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT US PLAYERS SO DON'T SPEND REAL MONEY IN THE GAME NO MATTER WHAT DON'T SUPPORT THIS KIND OF COMPANIES THAT DON'T CARE ABOUT US.
Difficulty level completely broken
I downloaded this at v1.5 and at first it was fine climbing the tower. I noticed older players said it was possible to actually win in extreme busts before recent update and right now I have a hard time winning on what's deemed normal and sometimes even easy. After floor 15 I upgraded all new armor level 2 and if I try to go against medium difficulty knights, it's one hit kill on my team and then I can't even make a dent with the level 2 proton pack.
I haven't even completed a whole destroyer event because the difficulty is ridiculous even starting from the bottom of the tower, especially stay puft. Plus they sure were drawing from the bottom of the barrel for creativity for other destroyer events: random witch, biker ghost, clown. So when a clown completely humiliates you as a destroyer because his difficulty is unrealistic that I'm just ready to quit. Don't know why I'm still playing, it hasn't gotten better as tower progresses.
I am firm about not paying money on this game if the game requires it at the next level or now, then I guess I'm done playing. Not worth paying money to make a broken game work the way it should from the beginning.
