Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts [REPACK]

In each of the eight levels (named Quests), four of them consisting of two sections, Arthur, has a time limit to fight ghouls before defeating a Foul Guardian that protects the gate to the next stage.[1][6][2][7] The first five Quests (The Dead Place, The Rotting Sea, Vermilion Horror, The Ghoul's Stomach, and The Deep Chill) take place in a variety of locations, such as graveyards, abandoned ships on sea, flame-filled caverns, and locales consisting of ice and snow.[1][8] The final three Quests (The Castle of the Emperor, Hallway of Ghouls, and The Throne Room) are areas of Sardius's castle.[1] Parts of the environment, such as earth ground lifting caused by earthquakes, blizzards, heavy sea waves, and avalanches, are also threats to Arthur.[3] Ice Wall, the second section of the fifth level, depicts Arthur scaling a rotating palace as in Nebulus (1987).[1][9]

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts

Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead was in the minority on finding the challenge proper. He opined it "relies far too heavily on cheap tricks and blatantly unfair game mechanics to turn an otherwise pleasant platformer into an exercise in cruel frustration", his rationales including inability to change directions during a jump, and superior enemy advantages in terms of movement and ability for foes to shoot through certain objects Arthur could not.[28] Neal Ronaghan of Nintendo World Report and Nadia Oxford of USgamer wrote the player had to be perfect starting at level one.[15][42] According to Oxford, "every pixel of every level" had to be memorized, such as enemy patterns, power-up locations, platform movement, and the best power-up weapons to kill each enemy.[42] Oxford, as well as reviewers from Nintendo World Report and Super Play, stated the difficulty level was so high some players, even those of average skill, wouldn't enjoy it.[41][15][42] Super Play claimed it was hard to beat even a single section without the power-up armors, made worse by how easy it is to lose it.[41] The magazine and Nadia also condemned the absence of a save feature, such as a password or the console's save battery, meaning the game had to be beat in one sitting.[42][41]

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts was praised for its replay value. Wrote ACE magazine's David Upchurch, the game was "tough but rarely frustrating, and will keep you coming back again and again until it's been cracked".[9] Upchurch called the control "superb", writing the SNES joypad was so well-designed it made jumping and shooting possible.[9] Super Pro felt it had more depth and replay-a-bility than other arcade ports due to its "exciting" graphics and sound and the "variety and imagination" in its level design.[8] Wrote McFerran, "the fantastic level design, inventive enemies and gripping gameplay lock you in for hours, despite the fact that for a large portion of that time you'll feel like you're banging your head against a wall".[38]

The graphics, sound and level design was lauded, especially by retrospective reviews that called the game the best example of the 16-bit console's capabilities.[38][3][45] In Video Games, Julian Eggebrecht found the graphics the best he'd seen on a home console.[43] James Mielke of GameSpot considered the game's color palette ahead of its time.[46] Claimed Super Gamer, "there's a multitude of power-ups, hideously imaginative monsters and fantastic settings, including a beautifully drawn sunken ship."[47] Mean Machines writer Rich, calling the graphics "exceptional", stated the game superseded another one of Capcom's arcade ports to the SNES, U.N. Squadron, in term of backdrops.[37] He and Upchurch highlighted the ice level, particularly its parallax scrolling, layers of snow, and tower section.[9][37] Nintendo Life staff, in addition to noting the "outstanding sprite work" and "lots of neat little touches in the background", also focused on Mode 7 effects such as the zooming of enemy sprites and rotating platforms.[38]

Arthur and PrinPrin are spending a quiet moment locked in embrace, when she is suddenly snatched away by a huge demon! As her screams echo through the night, Arthur rushes from the castle, and pursues the demon to the graveyard, where he is greeted by hundreds of horrible ghouls and monsters!

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts was one of the first SNES titles, launching just two months after the console's 1991 release. The story begins with the kidnapping of Princess Guinevere at the hands of the evil Emperor Sardius, which promptly sets Sir Arthur on his quest to rescue her from all manner of, well, ghouls and ghosts.

You'll begin your adventure equipped with armour and an infinite number of throwable lances with which to dispatch your supernatural foes. Throughout your quest you'll find both armour and weapon upgrades in treasure chests. Armour upgrades come in Bronze and Gold varieties, the former giving your weapon a power boost, while the latter gives you a powerful charge move which can serve to clear the field for you in a pinch. If you manage to survive long enough in the Gold armour to find yet another upgrade chest, you can get your hands on the Moon shield which will absorb one hit for you, provided you're standing still at the moment of impact. Beyond that there's a Sun shield, which works the same way but absorbs three hits. Take a hit without that shield, and you're back to your skivvies regardless of the type of armour you were wearing at the time.

This game would have been better if you did not have to go through the whole dam thing twice to get to the last boss with a crap weapon. anyone thinking of getting it on download compared to super castlevania take my advice and get castlevania

Once again, you must survive the dangerous journey into the depths of the Ghoul Realm. You'll swat at horrible ectoplasms and ghouls whose touch is deadly. Vampires will swirl around your head. Voracious plants will snap at you, hungry for bones to gnaw. The earth will crack, the seas will swell, and the fiends of darkness will engulf you.

What makes this game so dang hard is the untraditional way Arthur moves. Like all platform heroes, Arthur can run and jump along his side-scrolling terrain...and in the Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts series, Capcom designers gave this guy a double jump. But unlike most action heroes, players cannot control Arthur's jump in the air...once he vaults airborne, you can't change his trajectory until he's got both feet back on the ground. Sure, it's more realistic this way, but man...the gameplay issues that arise from this simple idea in character control is just insane. This is completely intentional, and it's obvious that the level designers got off on making some of the most difficult platform layouts ever conceived. You have to learn how far and how high Arthur will go with a single or double jump, otherwise you'll find yourself bumping into evil caskets, zombies, ghosts, and other undead threats. The only way to get through each of the levels in the game is to mentally map out the patterns the enemies move and honestly have zero chance running through a level the first time successfully. No freakin' way.

Along with the original set of difficulty insanity from the Super NES days, Capcom also created a brand new "remix" mode that rearranges the Super NES levels with sprinklings from levels in the past games of the series...most notably the Genesis/arcade version of Ghouls 'n Ghosts. Not to add anymore pressure to the already intense gameplay or anything, but if you complete a level in Remix Mode wearing magic armor, you can choose a separate path in the level structure. Complete the level wearing the uber-armor and you can chose a third, even more difficult area in the level structure. This task is incredibly harsh, since you'll have to locate the hidden triggerpoints that'll net you not only the magic armor and the super magic armor...but you'll also have to hold onto the armor without taking a hit during the tough boss battles. Did I mention how crazy difficult this game is?

Arthur heads out to sea and enters The Graveyard of Ships, a fleet of sunken sailing vessels patrolled by ghosts. Crossing the rapidly-deteriorating structures leads to The Sea of Despair, where turbulent waters, jagged coral and a host of aquatic demons threaten to sink Arthur and his tiny raft. At the end of the area, the Giant Barnacle must be defeated in a sea battle to reach the next stage.

The penultimate Stage features a harrowing gauntlet of Cockatrice heads, tiny imps and ghosts. Astaroth appears once again for a rematch at the end, but after his second defeat he transforms into the powered-up Nebiroth for one last showdown. In classic Ghosts 'n Goblins fashion, players that manage to complete the game's seventh stage are told by Guinevere that they cannot defeat the final boss without obtaining a new hidden weapon, the Goddess' Bracelet. The player is sent back to the first stage where they must complete the game a second time; players are also required to equip the Goddess' Bracelet before reaching Sardius, the game's final boss.

Super Ghouls N' Ghosts soundtrack is fantastic. However, It's not something I'll listen to outside of the game. The game itself is great. Arthur still has his stiff ass controls from the last game which means you got the classic knockback, no mid-air controls, etc. However, Arthur does have a double jump in this game which is extremely useful and you gotta use it in order to beat the game. The weapons Arthur can use are fine with the classics returning such as The Knife, The Crappy Axe, the torch, etc. You also get some new weapons like the scythe and the crossbow which is pretty much the knife on steroids. You also get some new armors that make your weapons more powerful. One of which let's you do super attacks. The stages are fun and extremely f*cking hard. Don't think for a second that this game is easy because of Arthur's new weapons and his double jump. This game is extremely hard and you will need to have god like reflexes to beat this game. This game is one of the hardest games I've ever played in my life. It's harder then Ecco The Dolphin, Castlevania Dracula X, Transformers: Mystery Of Convey, and Super Mario Bros 2: The Lost Levels. I wouldn't say it's harder then games like Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship Of Doom or Life Force, but it comes pretty damn close. The bosses range from fun and challenging to extremely easy. By the way, you don't have unlimited continues in this game and you still have to beat the game twice in order to get the real ending. Which I did after screaming at my Wii U for 6 hours... Overall, Super Ghouls N' Ghosts is a great game with a fantastic soundtrack. Game: 7.5/10.Soundtrack: 6.8/10. 041b061a72
