Have you ever wandered around your home at night and felt like you weren’t alone? As if there was something creeping about that you couldn’t see even out of the corner of your eye? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Well put these spooky thoughts to rest, because XMG Studios and the Ghostbusters have developed the latest in spectral identification and extermination technology. Introducing: Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast.
Do your part by joining your local Ghostbusters, all new recruits can pick out one of six avatars and hit the streets to track down spirits, ghouls and ghosts. Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast utilizes augmented reality and location based features to connect players with the more hostile members of the afterlife. Ray Sharma, founder and CEO of XMG Studios explains:
“Augmented Reality introduces virtual objects into a real-world environment as seen through your camera. Players use the iPhone location to find and catch local ghosts but will also need to use their accelerometer and gyroscope to blast-and-then-steer ghosts into a virtual ghost trap for containment and collection.”
When its time to call the real Ghostbusters, never expect a minute of dead air. Players will have full access to all the gadgets Egon can jam into the back of the Ecto-1, including the ever faithful Proton pack, Neutrona wand, and best of all your very own flight suit. Expect to be haunted by some fan favorites such as the Librarian ghost and of course Slimer. The game features more than 14 of these 3D intangible nasties and its your job to capture them. For every demon you cage you”’ receive city payouts in the form of in-game petty cash and members only buster bucks that you can redeem for upgrades to all your equipment.
Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast is available now on the App Store. It’s time to hit the streets, hunt some ghosts and keep your neighborhood Twinkies from reaching critical mass. But whatever you do, don’t cross the streams!
