Bits Laboratory (ビッツ・ラボラトリー Bittsu Raboratorii) was a Japanese game developer formerly known as Workss (ワークス). They are probably best known for Ghostbusters (NES), which has been highly criticized for its poor gameplay. They also developed the NES version of King's Knight, which was also poorly received by critics.
The first driver was programmed by Yoshiaki Tsuruoka and was used in their four earliest games; Ghostbusters, Kiki Kaikai: Doutou Hen, King's Knight, and Magma Project Hacker. It is unknown how the music was written, but it was probably written in 6502 assembly, like most other sound drivers on the NES at the time.
