Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts begins as the dauntless knight Arthur is caught up in a dangerous quest. A spell has been cast upon his kingdom, and the evil emperor has snatched his fair maiden, Princess Prin Prin. Only Arthur can get her back from the creatures of the undead that haunt the land. Players must test their courage and skill in order to save Arthur's damsel from distress and the monarchy from torment. Magic, mystery, and the mightiest weapons await gamers as they journey through the ghoulish realm and uncover glorious treasure.
The release of Super Ghouls 'n' Ghosts marks the return of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) classic to the Game Boy Advance. The game features classic 2-D side-scrolling action and all of the gameplay elements of the original. It also includes newly designed enemies and stages.
The quest begins as a spell has been cast upon Arthur's kingdom and the evil emperor has snatched Arthur's fair maiden, Princess Prin Prin. Only Arthur can retrieve her from the creatures of the undead that haunt the land. The new Arrange mode allows players to choose the next stage of the game at the end of each level. This adds more replay value to the game and allows those who have played the original version to play new stages. The game also includes popular enemies from the original Ghosts 'n' Goblins and Super Ghosts 'n' Goblins.See all Product description

You play as Arthur, a brave knight, who sets out to rescue his girlfriend/princess from the clutches of Lucifer. You must go through multiple stages and battle many enemies before you face off with the big boss himself. Then, in a horrific twist, you must go through the stages once again, and this time you must find a specific weapon. If you do not, you will not be able to go all the way. No game messes with the minds of gamers and hits you with intense difficulty quite like the Ghosts and Goblins games; Super GnG holds up this tradition proudly.
The PROS: This port captures all of the stages, all the enemies in all of its great graphics, music and sound effects. Controls are easy from the get go so no worries since you will be focused on getting through the stages. Capcom decided to throw in new stages and depending on how well you do, you can choose the next stage as you progress. And for the first time, you can save your progress at any time. It's a welcome addition that doesn't require you to beat the game in one sitting. You wouldn't be able to, anyway. :P
The CONS: If there is one thing that I can say here is that this game is HARD. You will not beat this game in a few dozen tries. You will scream. You will get angry. You might break your GBA (or DS) in half. If you don't like incredibly and brutally difficult games, do not buy this! Consider yourself warned.
Super Ghouls N Ghosts is truly a unique game. On one hand, you have a action platform game that is great to play and carries on the reputation of the Ghosts N Goblins series. On the other hand, it is so brutally hard and unforgiving that only certain gamers who thrive off on that stuff will truly enjoy themselves. I cursed the name of the game for every time I played it. And then I went back and tried again. Would you feel the same? There's only one way to find out.
It was frustratingly fun to play, but once I beat it and found out about the braclet search, I quickly put it away to collect dust. My sanity is worth more than Princess Gueniever's life. Satan can have her.
To reduce the difficulty in this game as much as possible, look for the weapon that fires diagonally.
1. Nostalgic Value: This was one of my first games for the SNES. 2. Great Music: I remember all the songs even after losing the game 10 years before.
3. Cartrage Save Feature: not only does it allow you to take a break without losing your progress, but you can also make it so you start every stage with the best upgrade.
4. Arrange mode: New stages add to the variety.
Cons: 1. You have to go through the game twice to beat it, and the item you must obtain in the second quest is very awkward and clumsy to use. However, you can get it on the first runthrough in "Arrange mode"
2. in "Arrange mode", you have to beat a level with upgraded armor(which means making it to the boss and then beating it without taking a hit) to get a new stage instead of the SNES stage
3. the difficulty CAN be annoying in several places, especially with those darn gargoyals.
4. No Sound test. The SNES Version had one, why not this?
Overall, this game is not too bad. I only gave it three stars because of the whole second quest deal and the expectation that you be an expert to see any new stages.
