Recent Updates

Ghostbusters Remastered (The Real)

Hack of Ghostbusters

Description:

This is a complete modification of the US version of Ghostbusters on the NES.

  • Overhauled graphics (99% original. Character sprites and Slimer adapted from The New Ghostbusters 2 on the Famicom).
  • Doubled performance on many sections of the game.
  • Much improved gameplay/controls everywhere.
  • Heavily rebalanced game design.
  • Countless bugs fixed.

The Mapper has been modified from 3 to 66 and rom was expanded by 32000 bytes to accommodate the new voice.

New in version 1.1:

  • Added cheat code for easy mode (start with $10k) and easy mode ending. A+B+Start at the title or lyrics screen. A sound cue replaces the Ghostbusters yell, confirming it.
  • Added visual feedback for PKE penalty when a ghost enters the Zuul building.
  • Updated title screen to include “The Real”, “Visit” and version number.
  • Code for building infection completely rewritten for stability, reliability and balance.
  • Fixed correlation of blinking buildings and buildings that contain ghosts (buildings used to secretly have ghosts and not blink).
  • Slightly reduced ghost speed on higher PKE levels.
  • Can’t enter Zuul building just by reaching 9000+ PKE anymore.
  • Fixed fuel barrel hitbox.
  • Better car control.
  • Slightly increased sound generator efficiency.
  • Faster parking on GBHQ.
  • Marshmallow Man’s animation speed increased when destroying buildings.
  • Fixed sign graphics for floor 16.
  • Ghosts inside Zuul move a lot faster towards food now.
  • Fixed bug where you could “enter” a road, loading to the gas station.
  • Proper graphics for destroyed buildings after coming back to the city map from another scene.
  • City buildings color coded: purple buildings (non destroyed) can be infected.
  • Some items are now fully refundable.
  • Added “REFUND” subtitle under respective items.
  • Fixed the bug where the game would pause when holding the B button on the map. The unexpected pause looked like a crash.
  • Fixed HUD glitch when reaching the top of Zuul Building.
  • Can no longer enter empty or destroyed buildings.
  • Fixed bug where it wouldn’t refuel at the gas station if on zero cash.

Known problems:

  • After laying the ghost food ghosts will move for a little while before being attracted to it.
  • When capturing ghosts on the road section, if the player runs out of gas the captured ghosts will respawn on the map screen.
  • On the road section sometimes ghosts or bonus money sprites can get stuck while parking.
  • The HUD will not update when a gameover is reached or when scrolling messages. Gameover will trigger on 9999 PKE as normal, though it may not display the updated value in those cases.
