GameplayEdit

The player can choose their own avatar out of six choices, consisting of three male Ghostbusters and three female Ghostbusters, all of them varying widely in appearance. Ghost sightings register on a map of the state or province the player currently lives in(powered by Google Maps) as red bullets with ghostly faces. Tapping on the bullet and then tapping "fight now" answers the assignment and sends the player to fight the ghost.

Both the player and the ghost have a health bar. The ghost has attacks that drain the player's health, while the player is able to drain the ghost's health with a proton gun. Once the ghost's health has completely drained, the player can throw out a trap to capture the ghost and then put the ghost in their Containment Unit. If the ghost succeeds in draining the player's health, they escape, although the player is still able to try capturing them again. The higher a ghost's level is, the stronger it will be and the harder it is to defeat and capture.

There are 15 different types of ghosts in the game, and capturing a type of ghost for the first time adds them to the Containment Unit to be viewed. An update made September 28, 2012 added the feature of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man manifesting for battle every 8 hours as a chance for the player to earn extra cash by busting him. Even though he is not captured after his health is drained, he is added to the Containment Unit as a viewable ghost like the other 15 ghosts after he is defeated for the first time.

Busting ghosts gives the player two kinds of currency: Petty Cash tokens and Buster Bucks. Petty Cash tokens are used to purchase upgrades to the Flight Suit, Neutrona Wand, Proton Pack, and Ghost Trap to make it easier to battle stronger ghosts. Buster Bucks are used to buy stasis beams for immobilizing the ghost for an easier shot and proton bombs to take out nearly half of the ghost's health. People can also use their real money to purchase Buster Bucks rather than earn them by busting ghosts.

Statistics at the end of missions are made by the time it took the player to bust the ghost, the ghost's power level, and the accuracy of the player's aim during the bust.
