Default Ghostbusters I by Activision for Amiga?

The thing is that I use to play the Ghostbusters game by Activision on the C64 and I used to love it, and I exepcted to find it on the Amiga, with enhanced graphics and sound.
The problem is that I cant find it, did it ever existed?
Please dont confuse yourself with Ghostbusters II or The Real Ghostbusters games, I am only looking for the original first version of Ghostbusters for the Amiga, if there was one.

I remember the real ghostbusters and Ghostbuster II, maybe they didn't do Ghostbusters I.

It didn't come out on the Amiga. I used to play it on my Atari 800XL.

It is a pitty, it was a very good game. Well, I will just have to keep on playing the C64 version with a C64 emulator on my Amiga
It should have been so much better on the Amiga as native...

You can play the best looking version of Ghostbusters on your Amiga if it's AGA and has a 030 or faster CPU. You just need to install AmiMasterGear from here - http://kung-foo.dhs.org/zener/AmiEmulatorsWeb/index.htm
And download the Ghostbusters Sega Master System ROM! The game was enhanced for the Sega and features nicer graphics than the C64 original and maybe a couple of other improvements too. This is how I've been playing this awesome game on the Amiga for years, and although it might not feel exactly the same as the C64 version, it's definitely just as good or better. And AmiMasterGear runs much faster than any C64 emulator on the Amiga, so more people will have a chance to try it (it runs on an A1200 or CD32 with Fast RAM too, if you have one, just a little slow).

It might be a good thing they didn't make an Amiga version, occasionally the Amiga version of a C64 game was kind of a disappointment. I'm looking at you, Feud.

Thanks Cammy, I will give it a try. Its surely sounds better than the C64 version.

When I read this post I spat out my tea all over my monitor and simultaneously shat myself. Surely you're not advocating piracy? Piracy makes me sick. It funds terrorism. It kills kids.

ROTFLMAO! This spitting of the tea and of the shatting. The terrorism and kids thing... now that's just awful. I'm going to give up using pirated software altogether now.

Come to think of it, since the original authors never received a dime from all the second hand software I bought and continue to purchase - what's the difference? I'm still funding terrorism and killing kids! AArrgghh... guess it just doesn't make sense to use ANY software for ANY computer unless I buy direct and for current projects only!

Only one thing... isn't piracy of games the distribution of them without paying for them? How does that "FUND" terrorism? LOL! Or maybe the the Live-Porn-Chat/Won-Free-Wii/Find-Your-Long-Lost-Grand-Pa links on most pirate sites actually get clicked?

I'm pretty sure my tax dollars have funded terrorism and child killing at some point. /ponder/

All a matter of perspective, isn't it?

Why would a 1984 game be released on the Amiga... Think about it. I know the platform is old but not that old... And in those days they didn`t release earlier versions later.. Well not very often. By the time the Amiga hit the streets we were up to Ghostbuster II....

And these were the platforms of the day...

Amstrad CPC, Apple II/+, Atari 800/2600/XL/XE, C64, NES, Sega Master System, ZX Spectrum (16/48K)

I have all those computers and probably the versions of Ghostbusters... except possibly the game version for the Apple. You can see all the computers on my website.
