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.
Super Ghouls N Ghosts is the remake of Super Nintendo Version of Ghost and Goblin series, where they implemented this infamous double jump. This game is about timing, your ability to deal with the situation quickly, jumping with your instinct.. And this this double jump, it added much more possibilities, much more moves you can pull out in the game. They transported this sequel faithfully from Super Nintendo and I had to finish it in couple days. I had to finish it in couple days because not only I was in for nostalgic mood but also severely addicted to it. I've been playing games for latest systems yet finding myself putting down controller so easily due to games' lack of genuine game play.. yet this game is so addictive that I had to finish it in couple days.. It really shows what genuine 'gameplay' of a game can pull out time after time.
You play this game and you tell me- Beautifully drawn graphic, more-than-perfect-atmosphere-creating music, intuitive, intuitive control, and challenging game play which still shines after all these years.
I happened to have compilation disc for import Sega Saturn, which contains original Ghost N Goblin, Ghost N Goblin 2, and this SNES version. And trust me, being able to play this third installment before bed time, during break, while walking, it's just priceless-
They have included the original version with rearranged version. Original version does faithfully play like original version. Moreover, rearranged version included this never-been-played-before levels, which is partially from previous Ghost N Goblin series. That's right, they've included more stages from other installment.
I have no choice but to give 5 Stars for Super Ghouls N Ghosts because I'm truly grateful for being able to play this very game on GBA. Of course, this game does provide you with challenging gameplay because that's the trade mark for Ghost N Goblin series. I wouldn't want this game to be finished in one sitting and never play it again- I rather play them again and again to finish it and trust me, it's gonna take awhile to figure out the rearranged mode to play those 'new' stages. Man, I'm in for real treat these days, Super Mario(Yoshi's Island), new Castlevania, and Super Ghouls N Ghosts- Somebody pinch me!
PS: I love this kind of game; where you make mistake, then you are over. Not that you have health point to be depleted, but every move, every decision to either jump, crouch, move, or attack has to be decided quickly or otherwise you are a dead man. Man, I wish Capcom would bring out first two series in one gamepack eventually if that's possible- Either this or that, I welcome the idea of bringing over those classics, just bring'em in!

To reduce the difficulty in this game as much as possible, look for the weapon that fires diagonally.
