Review

Should I introduce the game again ?
.

Ok , RGB hit the CPC. The worse version I've seen , not because of the bad job but for the CPC. Greenish palette , average sounds and ,again, this sense of "overloaded GFX" , with basic animation. Therefore Gameplay suffer along with eyes , if I were you I would forget about it and get other versions. Yeah, right, I don't like the CPC but I've no prejudice , all the game I've seen until now ( not only Ghostbusters) did nit impressed be compared to the C64 , it's rival , although the technical inferiority of the latter is know. Short review for a game that deserve it. You can always try it it downloadable.
