This was the start of the action-adventure platform game that was to dominate the arcades for many years. After waves of shoot-em-ups had filled the arcades, this was the genre which sprang from Donkey Kong. Capcom was to become a major player in this genre and Ghouls n Ghosts was its ace card.
Multiple weapons (lance, torch, dagger and axe) and a great deal of agility for a fully armoured warrior, are your only defence against an enormous host of baddies, Zombies rise from the ground, plants spit deadly spores, wizards and demons simply try to kill you. It’s a hard knight.
