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
- It’s time to send these spooks back where they came from…or to their nearest convenient parallel dimension!

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.
I want to first start by saying that I did enjoy the game immensely, at first. I played daily, collected my bonuses, leveled up and did my best to complete the quests. Unfortunately, my progress was hindered somewhat (as mentioned by other players as well) by some of the tasks requiring specific 'versions' of the ghosts needed to complete them. This normally wouldn't have been a problem, but the restriction often forced me to repeatedly answer the same 'calls' multiple times in a row, only to find out that no progress had been made towards the objective. I fought through it though because, as I said before, it was an overall enjoyable game. This ceased to be the case however when I reached the 25th floor.. No new tasks appeared, and the 'boss stages' were nonexistent. Thinking it might just be that I needed to improve my team more, I continued playing and upgrading my equipment, but to no avail. All of my current gear is completely maxed out, with the next tier sitting there taunting me with no means to unlock it... The same can be said for the ghost research, which is completely empty at this point. I would really like to continue playing, but if no new update comes out to allow us to progress further, I don't think I can continue to convince myself to keep it.
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.
