ROM Hacks: The Real Ghostbusters Remastered 1.1 Released!
« on: October 19, 2019, 09:16:40 am »

Update By: nesrocks

The long awaited NES Ghostbusters hack is here! Version 1.0 was released on October 4th, 2019. After hearing a lot of user feedback, fixes and improvements have been made in version 1.1. Be sure to check it out!

Most importantly, a cheat code has been added to allow the player to start with $10k in savings, to get accostumed with the new game design. The original game's city map and ghost catching aspect was completely pointless and nearly impossible to get a gameover on. The only challenge was the staircase, with its terrible controls. Players would rely on a glitch to get 255 lives and beat the level, reaching the even more broken fight with Gozer.

This hack fixes and rebalances everything to make a real game out of it. So, though it may look like it is the same, it does not play like the original game at all. Thinking so could be frustrating, so keep these points in mind while playing:

- Your main and only goal is to enter the Zuul building before PKE reaches 9999. For this you need to regularly stop and catch roaming ghosts, as they greatly increase the PKE meter if they reach the building!

- After you have enough money for a beam and the anti-ghost suit you can enter the Zuul building, but buying the ghost food and the sound generator is advisable.

- The hyper beam doubles the amount of money acquired from catching ghosts on buildings! But depending on your strategy you may want to keep the regular capture beam.

- Same goes for the ghost alarm and the super trap. They may or may not be worth it depending on the play style!

You can hold Turbo B and walk straight at Gozer to win.  Perhaps there should be a minimum cooldown time for shots.
