Ghostbusters on NES Gets “SMS” Overhaul in this Recent Hack



Pacnsacdave decided to give the NES version of Ghostbusters a graphic overhaul to have it resemble the superior Sega Master System version.

Along with the redesign, he also removed the gas canisters where in the original NES game the Ecto-1 often ran out of gas and the only way to get gas was run over barrels of gas that some how littered the streets of Manhattan. The SMS version did not incorporate this gas refill system. The second change was that you no longer need to take the “A” / walk button when walking up the stars of 55 Central Park West. You simply need to hold down the “A” button instead.
