Who ya gonna call for the best playing pinball on iOS?!

FarSight Studios, the makers of the award winning Pinball Arcade, have created Ghostbusters™ Pinball!

The table is based on the hit movie released in 1984 and its sequel. This game puts you in control of the Ghostbusters crew, featuring Egon, Peter, Ray and Winston, as they battle paranormal foes in New York City. The Playfield is divided into three levels representing iconic settings from the movies: the city, rooftop and subway. Use eight flippers to move the ball through the three levels by shooting up and down ramps, tubes and a manhole as you build up a huge Ghost Bonus. Raise the Slimer Pop Bumper to reveal a ball lock for Multi-Ball and then cross the streams on the roof to destroy the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!

The gameplay is a blast! There are even very detailed instructions and goals to accomplish that help players of all skill levels enjoy all of the table’s features.

It’s free to play all three balls and set high scores to compete on worldwide leader boards. This game is token-based. You get 10 tokens to start with and you earn at least four tokens each day.

Pinball fans with the Pinball Arcade installed earn twice the tokens per day!

We hope you enjoy it!

Get bustin’ with this updated version of the Ghostbusters RPG

The Nerdy Show Network is proud to announce the debut of their Ghostbusters Roleplaying Hub and the launch of their Paranormal Investigations and Eliminations Standard Equipment Deck and Franchise Kit. The site offers a one-stop destination for everything a would-be Ghostbuster needs to gear-up and get gaming!

Since 2012, Nerdy Show’s fan-favorite podcast series Ghostbusters: Resurrection has used their own homebrew version of West End Games’ Ghostbusters roleplaying system to record their episodic, actual-play show. The series takes place in Ghostbusters continuity, following the events of Ghostbusters: The Video Game and Burnham and Schoening’s IDW comic series. With many aspects of Ghostbusters cannon absent from the 1986 system, and “Car Phones” not being applicable to a modern setting – they had to improvise. Ghostbusters: Resurrection GM (General Manager), Doug Banks devised an expansion of the equipment and rules; bringing in classic gear like Slime Blowers, newer additions like the Dark Matter Generator, and incorporating the spectrum of ectoplasmic residue (green, pink, and black).

The end result wasn’t just a thoroughly engrossing podcast series (now ending its second season), but an update to a beloved roleplaying system too good to keep to themselves. However, it wasn’t enough that the Nerdy Show team post a how-to for their expansion – they wanted to take the game to the next level.

The Ghostbusters RPG has been out of print since 2006 and since then the rule books have become readily available online. However, in order to play you need some custom gear: Equipment Cards and a Ghost Die. The Equipment Cards determine what items a player is carrying and act as a quick reference for how it works, and the Ghost Die is a 6-sided die with a special facing that’s essential to Ghostbusters’ chaotic and fun gameplay. In order to usher in a new era of Ghostbusters roleplaying, Nerdy Show has redesigned both and offers all-new print-your-own card sets or fans can support the project and pick up a professionally printed deck.

The Paranormal Investigations and Eliminations Standard Equipment Deck features 50 cards inside a Containment Unit tuck box – enough gear for 5 players. The set has been completely redesigned by graphic designer and Nerdy Show head, Cap Blackard, and features all-new equipment illustrations by artist Matasm. The deck is available as part of the Starter Kit (which comes with a laser-etched Ghost Die) or the Franchise Kit – a special edition package that includes everything needed to game including a Ghost Die, 12 slime green d6s, newly redesigned Personnel Cards, as well as a certificate commemorating the launch of your new Ghostbusters franchise.

This project has been a labor of love, developed alongside fans who’ve been dying to expand their own games. With the Ghostbusters Roleplaying Hub, Nerdy Show hopes to revitalize the system for a whole new generation of fans. This isn’t the end of the project either, it’s only the beginning. If fan support is strong enough, Nerdy Show will be able to develop additional Equipment Cards, new modules for gameplay, and more fun – by fans, for fans.
