One Response to Extreme Ghostbusters (Game Boy Color)

  1. Extreme Ghostbusters for the Game Boy Color is a bit of an obscure title. It is based on an animated series of the same name which was in turn a sequel to The Real Ghostbusters which was a spinoff of the Ghostbusters movie.

    I remember watching The Real Ghostbusters and so I’m somewhat familiar with that one but I had never heard of Extreme Ghostbusters. It would have been targeted at a younger audience than me so I guess that is understandable. That and it only lasted for one year. The Real Ghostbusters had a much more successful run that lasted around seven years.

    At any rate, I discovered a few interesting things when looking this stuff up. Apparently, The Real Ghostbusters was created by Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis of Ghostbusters (and other) fame. In addition, many of the episodes were edited and/or written by J. Michael Straczynski, the creator of Babylon 5. This must have been an even more kick-ass show than I remember. I’m going to have to see if I can track down all of the episodes somewhere.

    As for Extreme Ghostbusters, neither the cartoon nor the game are nearly as interesting but YMMV, especially if this was something you watched or played as a kid.
