- Experience the thrill of 3D...without glasses!
Yep, that's right. Ghostbusters 4D leverages IGT's TRUE 3D technology to deliver eye-popping 3D graphics, without the use of glasses, Ecto-goggles, or other peripherals. The proprietary technology leverages eye and head movement-tracking cameras to enable classic ghostly characters such as Slimer, the Terror Dogs, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to materialize right in front of your eyes!
- Have you ever felt the energy of a proton stream before? Yeah, we didn't think so, but you can now! Thanks to the game's use of mid-air haptic technology, Ghostbusters 4D players can feel the game's 3D graphics in mid-air. In exciting bonuses, such as the "Ballroom Blaster Bonus," a player's finger becomes a proton blaster, and as players hunt for ghosts and credits, they will feel an energy stream sensation tingling their fingertips.
- Psssst! Listen, do you smell something? There are secret gestures that will unveil new game content. The secret is out. Draw a variety of shapes in mid-air any time while playing Ghostbusters 4D and be entertained by customized play and paranormal interactions.
