The Real Ghostbusters: Trap the Ghosts is a handheld video game released in 1988 by Remco. Sometimes this game is confused with Remco's The Real Ghostbusters game which features the Firehouse on the screen instead of the street seen in this version.
- Automatic point scoring plus bonus point system
- Two skill levels of game play
- Action game sounds
- Daily alarm signal
- Hourly chime
In the game, the player is Peter and you battle ghosts that are trying to land on bottom of screen in one of three spots. All the player needs to do is shoot them (shmup mechanically). The ghosts come down one at a time and can switch between the three spots with the two inbetweens. They move faster as the game progresses.
- On page seven of Ghostbusters Volume 2 Issue #19, the handheld game makes a non-canon cameo on the desk in Peter Venkman's office.
