    It's fun, good-natured and interesting, but just below the surface, all it is really interested in is squeezing some begrudgingly offered dollars from your pocket.

    Ghostbusters is one of the best freemium games around with some great real time strategy gameplay that is made for everyone to enjoy. Ghostbusters offers so much content to dive into making it a should have.

    Though it may be hard to believe, Beeline may have found the perfect way to distill the Ghostbusters experience into iOS game form. The fact that it is completely free and fun to boot makes it an even heartier download recommendation. So, who you gonna call? It should definitely be these guys.

    Ghostbusters does a good job in recreating the atmosphere of the movie and delivers an immediate and fun experience.

    There's always the feeling at the back of your mind that the game is a little over-complicated. Ironically, it's because it's so well presented and fun that you can't help thinking how much more fun a simple balls-to-the-wall blast fest would've been. The agency building template, like my trousers from ten years ago, just doesn't seem to be the most natural fit.

    The free-to-play design elements may hold some players back from completing the game, but it is clear the developers have a lot of love in their homage to the Ghostbusters films.

    With no meaningful play mechanics and no structure beyond the one dictated by the storefront, Ghostbusters is little more than a Pavlovian machine designed to suck money out of your account a few pence at a time. There's a world of difference between a game that uses micro-payments and a micro-payment model that is simply delivered in the guise of a game. If Ghostbusters has any value at all, it's as an illustration of this important point.
