Ghostbusters: The Sanctum of Slime

For people of a certain age (like me) Ghostbusters will always hold a nostalgic place in their hearts.
Even though the original movie was released over 25 years ago the franchise has continued to ‘slime’ the public with merchandise ever since.

Rumours of a third Ghostbusters film with the original cast have been abound for a while now and it seems only a decent story is holding up production this long (strange, usually that doesn’t get in the way). We expect them to start filming in the next couple of months with a release date set for early 2012.

As far as computer games go I’m old enough to remember the original Spectrum game by Activision. It was ahead of its time and had a spookily eerie way to save your progress and continue your game where you left off (even on another version of the game), I still haven’t worked out how it did it.

Over the years there have been half a dozen different Ghostbuster games, and last year it saw a new lease of life with some of the original cast voicing the characters in a game that was quite good fun.

The latest incarnation of the game is out in the next couple of months and according to Atari, Sanctum of Slime is a “four player, ghost-busting adventure that will take players on a brand new paranormal experience. Players will suit up with their proton packs and assume the role of a rookie hired by the Ghostbusters to save New York City from a disaster of ghoulish proportions”.

No other details are available at present but if it can continue the same way as the previous release it might even be a half decent game. Here is a sneek peek from the trailer. Look out for a full review on Flush the Fashion as soon as we get a copy.
