Ghost Rush! is a Sega Mega LD full motion video dungeon crawler role-playing game developed by Den'no Shokai and published by Pioneer LDC. Released in Japan and the United States in December 1994, Ghost Rush! features lightgun-like combat gameplay, and characters represented with claymation miniatures.

Gameplay

Combat in Ghost Rush! is similar to a lightgun game, with the goal of capturing any ghosts encountered to eventually sell at the local adventurer's shop, Talisman. The mansion contains 44 floors in 3 different settings, with about twenty different ghosts to encounter.

To complete the game, players need to collect twelve specific items to sacrifice to a chosen grave stone. Then players are tasked with destruction of thirteen ghostmachines before fighting the final bosses in the very top and bottom floors of the mansion.

Ghost Rush! can be completed in an average of 25 hours.
