About The Game

Laser Ghost is an arcade video game.

A series of heinous events is in progress. Poltergeists are running rampant in the city. As if that wasn't bad enough, a little girl is kidnapped by one of the ghosts in broad daylight. Now it's up to Bill, Max, and Carol to put an end to the paranormal madness.


On the title screen, there is a tombstone that makes a reference to Sega's 1989 shooter "Line of Fire".

There are two gimmicks about Laser Ghost. The first one is that the cabinet has 2 removable benches for players 1 and 3. The second gimmick is that the laser guns have a laser imaging device on top of the guns which gives the illusion of shooting real lasers onto the screen.

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Formula : G.S.M. Sega 5 - PCCB-00059) on 21/04/1991.
