Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts

a game by Capcom


Genres: Action, Platformer

If you've played Ghouls and Ghosts on the Genesis, then you know why it was a hit. This game is not just a translation but instead a whole new adventure created just for the Super NES. All new levels and Bosses, complete with a mix of new and old, populate this cart. Scaling and rotation are also used to their full extent to send Sir Arthur the Knight on a quest to save the Princess that is filled with danger!

People say:


This is definitely the best version of Ghouls and Ghosts to date, with plenty of action, options, power-up and wicked Bosses. The adventure is long as well, so you're sure to get your money's worth. The lack of ver-ticle firepower is a nasty turn of events, but it's blue ribbon otherwise.


I never thought that I would look back and think theGenesis version of Ghouls and Ghosts was cheesy. After playing this cart from beginning to end the difference is like NES and Genesis. Great sights and sounds are backed by solid, super challenging game play.


Awesome, awesome, awesome! As the Genesis game did for its system, the SNES version is truely one of the most impressive carts to date! Everything from screen rotations to blizzard backgrounds to storms at sea are in this cart! A bit hard, but the challenge is welcome!


This has got to be one of the most awesome games you could ever buy for a home system. It takes a little while to get used to the fact that you can't fire up and down, and there is a fair level of challenge, but for the giant Bosses and great game play I can live with the minor drawbacks.

Suit up for an all new Ghouls and Ghosts adventure!

Arthur's back and he's ready to do battle with a whole new crew of ghosts and goblins in all new adventure for the Super Famicom. The story is pretty much the same: defeat the minions of evil and rescue your main babe from the head bad guy, whoever he is. The graphics in this game totally blow the Genesis version of it's predecessor to pieces. The audio is also some of the best ever conceived on the Super Fami. The best thing about this game is the incredible game play. Challenging in every way but a game that can be mastered. The phenomenal graphics, sterling sound and gorgeous game play will keep you coming back again and again. Definitely a candidate for Game of the Year!

The princess has been captured once again in this sequel to the popular Ghouls and Ghosts. This time, however, Arthur has invaded 16-Bit in a big way on the new Super NES!

The evil Sardius has vowed revenge on Arthur for defeating Loki, and now the demon plans to exact his revenge by kidnapping the Arthur's love.The princess, it seems, is the only one who knows how to defeat this new evil, but she needs Arthur's help to get the job done. Only with her Goddess Bracelet will our hero be able to put an end to Sardius and his evil ways.
