- Sega Master System
In days of old when knights were bold And the Genesis was just invented. They programmed a host of Ghouls 'n Ghosts and gamers were contented.
Heroic knight Sir Arthur is one of the original princess-savers, and he's out to rescue Princess Tamara from the clutches of the vile Dark Prince, Loki. Run, jump, and hit that fire button - sure you've done it all before, but gadzooks! It's still fun!
Journey through Terror
Sir Arthur's five stage journey covers some of the most challenging SMS terrain around. Each stage consists of two rounds followed by a free-for-all versus a Gatekeeper, the boss who holds the key to the next level. All but one round scroll horizontally.
No vacation spots here; you'll tackle the Hill of Torture, the Village of Decay and Destruction, Baron Rankle's Tower, the Crystal Forest, and the creepy Castle.
Loki's minions overrun the land, and they exist to make your visit as unpleasant as possible. Take a hit and to add insult to injury you lose your armor and then your life. But though Spirits of Death, Pigmen, Skull Blossoms, mutant dragonflies, and Fire Bats look fierce (especially if you're only wearing underwear), it's negotiating the tricky obstacles such as rickety bridges, fire pits, tongue escalators, and a slippery stream bed that make the challenge intense.
Fight your way to Loki's doorstep and then you may find that it's like déjà vu all over again.
ProTip: To beat the Stage 1 Demon boss, stand underneath its floating head and fire up at it. If you have the Red Armor, you can get it before it gets you.
Might Makes Right
The action's lively enough to keep your thumbs busy and your wits on edge without short circuiting your brain. Arthur's got a good arm (he throws all his weapons), so a keen shooting eye is your best offense. You start out with the trusty Javelin, but you can find Daggers, Axes, Discuses, and Fireballs.
In the vertical Stage 3-1 go right young man (or woman)!
For added punch you can acquire five types of magic, too, but you can actually make it most of the way through without using any at all.
If possible, upgrade your shoes first. Stage 2-2 is torture with the ordinary Silver Shoes.
The dagger is the best weapon. It's quick, and it has the longest range.
You get help along the way in the form of Treasure Chests, which can rise up out of the ground anywhere. Blast 'еm open and you may reveal a secret Gate where you can upgrade your protective armor, don faster shoes, or recharge уour magic power.
In general, Gates appear once each stage (unless you die and continue). After that you can bet that the Wizard is waiting for you in the remaining Treasure Chests.
It your life points are low, grabbing Armor from a Gate will restore them even if it's the same color as the suit you're wearing.
However, ninety percent of the time Chests hide the pesky Magician. If you aren't fast on the draw, he'll turn you into a daffy duck (if you're wearing armor) or an old geezer (if you aren't).
Unlimited continues help you make a strong bid for the endgame screen, but there's no password feature so be sure you've paid your electric bill if you try to go all , the way.
Ghouls is a sharp-looking game. The graphics are excellent and the animation's smooth, with the just the barest twinge of flicker. Sir Arthur is a neat little cartoon-character, and it's a crackup when he loses his clothes or turns into a geezer. The monsters look pretty mean, particularly the Demon Heads and Loki.
Stand above the Stage 4 Wurm boss' five hearts and attack them when the valves are closed.
When you encounter Stage 5-2's floating Demon Heads, attack the one on the right first. If you destroy it, keep moving right until the Head on the left goes off screen. Next move left until only the very tip of its horn appears. It won't fire at you, but you can destroy it off-screen.
After you defeat Stage 5-2's Demon Heads, you'll come across two large doorways where two Blue Ogre's are hiding. To avoid a fatal crossfire find the spot in between the doorways where you can't be hit and only one of them appears at a time.
Ghouls 'n Ghosts is about as good a video adventure as there is. SMS crusaders searching for a quest ought to party hearty with Sir Arthur.
