Hi Dan - I did play Ghostbusters before writing this piece, and have been playing it a little since, too. The objective with the Charticle is to take a look at how a game/publisher/genre is performing in the app store charts, though, so it's necessarily short on any in-game analysis.
You make an interesting point re. IAP incentivisation though. Maybe I'll look into that a little more in future pieces.

Decent break down of the business behind the game, but it's not clear if you've played it at all. There's no great incentive to make in-game purchases because you're just unlocking avatars rather than building a world.
