Looks cool! Downloading now.

Hmmmm. 1st imps are this: only half of the vertical screen is being ised, with the rest showing the "Aapcom" label that is eerily similar to Capcom's logo font snd colors.

The premise is simply to catch ghosts....but all you can do is tap the screen, which moves your character right. Ghosts seem to come down the screen in random order, so you just keep tapping and moving ur guy right. Like classic games, once he's all the way to the right, he'll re-appear on the left side of the screen. If you line up with a ghost on the same vertical spot, your guy will set a trap that carches the ghost. Think Space Invaders.

Idk.....i guess i was thinking there would be left and right movement. This is bare-bones as is. Not a bad thing, just seems there could have been more done here.

Hi,

Thanks for coming to Touch Arcade! I like the game. I'm an old school gamer! Would it be possible to add left sided movement? Also a way to pay to remove move the ads?

Pretty cool you made this in a week.

glad to be here ^__^ ur the 2nd person 2 ask for a left XD I considered adding a 2nd player that goes only left for sum crazy 2 player action, I thought the one direction adds to the puzzle. I might hav to upload a video of a high scoring round (if i can figure out how to capture iphone footage :P) so u can see how it looks wen played well.

& if i update it i'll add the "remove ads" option for ya XD

It was originally titled "Ghostdusters" with a "d" lol & featured a mix on the Ghostbusters theme....but apple rejected it saying it was too similar to a license >__< so i reworked it a bit, i might try & get it back as Ghostdusters if i can XD
