Review Ghosts 'n Goblins (Virtual Console / Virtual Console Arcade)
The original quarter-eating monster returns
Over two years ago, before Nintendo introduced the Virtual Console Arcade, Capcom released the NES port of Ghosts 'n Goblins on Virtual Console. Arguably the most well-known version of the game out there, it's infamous for being an incredibly challenging and, frequently, totally unfair game. While it would...
About The Game
Ghosts ‘n Goblins is a classic game that packs a heavy punch (and lance).
Experience the smash arcade hit from 1985 as you help Arthur defeat hordes of monsters in his attempt to rescue the princess. The first (and possibly only) game in which taking a hit reduces you to your underwear.
It's great to finally see Capcom support for VCA (and even quite dedicated support) but do we really need another version of the original Makaimura?
Superb music for a great game.
"do we really need another version of the original Makaimura?"
I'd say yes. Who want's to play the 50hz glitchy NES version?
Is this the guy that's in Marvel vs. Capcom 3?
Awesome. Never played this at the arcade, but this will be an insta-buy for me. Lets encourage more virtual arcade titles from capcom
Strider; Street Fighter 2's; Final Fight; Ghouls n Ghosts
Yes! Maybe... Demon's Crest? (please please)
We already got the NES version on the VC.
I second the motion for Demons Crest. That game was awesome!
So people... should I buy the NES or the VC Arcade version?!
^ Get the arcade version
i am a little confused. We are talking about ghost n ghoblins for arcade but on the video its the nes version.
@cowboy: I think you're misremembering how NES games look
don't forget the INSERT COIN on the title screen.....
This is the only version of GnG's available now on VC. They took off the NES one a week or so ago.
Check that, Ninty put GnG (NES ver) back up tonight.
Infuriatingly difficult and addictive.
Yes, GnG is hard as nails, but it gives you that feeling of "maybe if I try one more time I can do it!", which is essential for a tough platformer. Of course, finally beating the game is an immensely rewarding experience, and makes all the trouble seem worth it.
does it have black bars down the sides..?
