I love this game. The idea of Ghostbusters reversed is hilarious. The missions are funny and various, so are the ghost and their powers (I especially recommend ghosts' epitaphs!). You can easily develop your own strategy and improve your favorite ghosts. It also has great soundtrack :) When I was a kid it actually helped me to get rid of my fears - whenever I heard some strange noise in the house or had a bad dream, I just thought "oh, it was just Boo trying to scare me". Ghost Master is a great game for 1) everybody who hates mortals, 2) everybody who hates Ghostbusters, 3) everybody who loves Ghostbusters, 4) scared kids, 5) everybody who likes screaming, 6) everybody who likes transparent materials, 7) everybody who wants to watch the world burn.

Childhood memory.

My dad bought me a CD version in 2003, I was 14 year old at that moment.
I could barely finish stage 5 and I got stuck, I love this game, but my gaming ability at 14 seemed not enough to solve the complicated mechanism of this game.
When i grew up, i had lost the disc of the game. And i feel sad that i didnt have chance to finish what i could want in my childhood.

10 years later, I found this game on STEAM and I bought it without any consideration.

Although 13 years has passed, I still feel a lot of fun when playing.

The mechansim of game and the design is far more superior to others game back to 2000s.

Even nowadays, you cant find such a game with similar theme as well as the mechansim.

Fans of game has made Ghost Master 2,

however, ghost master 1 is still the only master piece.

The game is not expensive, if you are boring because nth to play,

I hope you will give GHOST MASTER a try.

It wont fail you.

Train ghosts to scare people and get them to flee the building. Each ghost has a variety of powers at start and you can unlock more over time with gold plasma you earn from your scares. You earn plasma by scaring the people but it also costs plasma to use your ghost's powers. Each level also has a spirit you can unlock by discovering how you free it. I played through the tutorial and saw it has a lot to unlock and each ghost can grow better at scaring the more you use them.

This can be a great game for someone who likes management type sim games but just not for me.
