Oh the pain, the pain! There’s nothing like Ghosts’n Goblins, except maybe…well…the rest of the GnG series. Let’s get this out of the way right now, this game is hard, like OMG hard. If you have a short amount of patience or are easily frustrated don’t bother with this one. I say that because even after all these years this game is brutally hard. Here’s a glimpse of the very first stage.
Eventually my friend and I were able to make it extremely far in the game, although we never did manage to do the whole thing over again on the harder difficulty. Now that the game’s coming out on the Wii U’s Virtual Console I might just give the game another chance. The beauty of restore points! Some may call it cheating, but for a game like this it makes it so much more manageable. Why bother getting frustrated when you can, you know, actually enjoy the game! That’s the whole point, not destroying your TV.
Capcom has confirmed that Ghosts’n Goblins will be released on the Wii U Virtual Console on May 30th so if you’re looking to relive some awesome memories, or if you think you’re up to the challenge, by all means give the game a download and experience it for yourself. I can’t wait to see the Miiverse posts on this one ;)
