Also know as: Ghouls 'n Ghosts

The x68000 version of Ghouls'n Ghosts is supposed to be so good as to literally eclipse the Mega Drive and the SuperGrafx versions. Everything apparently looks and feels arcade perfect from the color palette to the graphical definition of the sprites and the backgrounds. The only annoying thing about this version is that it runs on disks although it should be possible to install the game on Hard Drive. What really sets this version aside from the others is the deluxe packaging that is by itself, worth of the purchase! On a side note, it is interesting to notice that the red text to the upper left side of the box (which I quote at the beginning of the review) refers to Arthur bringing peace to the land 3 years before. Indeed, it was 1985 when Ghosts'n'Goblins came out, and Ghouls'n Ghosts showed up in the arcades in 1988. Well to be honest, I don't know many people who played Ghosts'n Goblins and who were actually able to finish it because of the near to impossible difficulty of the last stages. So I guess it's no wonder Evil returned shortly after.
