The Real Ghostbusters should have the aliases Garfield Labyrinth and Mickey Mouse IV: Mahou no Labyrinth. It utilized different licenses in different regions but is otherwise the same game.
Hmm... So, if that's the case, does that mean any game that has a different name and different graphics despite having identical gameplay should be split up into two pages?
I'm talking specifically about games that were changed from one region to the next, but are still essentially the same game, with the same levels, running on the same engine.
for the NES was a Dragon Ball game on the Famicom. The sprites, story and title were changed... so should they be two separate pages? If not, should that

I honestly don't know, there seems to be arguments either way. If you just have one page, then it removes the redundancies of having similar info on multiple pages. However, with multiple pages, you can specify exact things for each version; also, it means searching and linking to franchises makes more sense.
Guys, Doki Doki Panic and Super Mario Bros. 2 are not the same game. One is not just a reskin of the other. I don't know about Real Ghostbusters versus Garfield, but I do know that Doki Doki Panic and Super Mario Bros. 2 are individual titles.
Was Super Mario Bros. 2 based on Doki Doki Panic's code? Yes.
Do they share elements? Absolutely.
Do they play exactly the same? No. As a matter of fact, they play quite differently from one another, as has been outlined in the articles.
Do they have all of the same system features? No.
Arguing that these pages should be merged is like arguing that Counter-Strike should be merged into Half-Life's page. Yes, they use the same codebase, but they aren't the same game.
