Review of 'Ghouls 'n' Ghosts'

Rating:3 User: Rebelstar Without a Cause

Ghoul's N Ghosts has some fantastic 128K music on the title screen. It's worth taking a moment to enjoy it before being plunged into a frustratingly difficult game. On the first level Grim Reapers will appear, often enough right on top of you or near enough that you do not have time to kill them. There's also the problem of the sprites blending in with the background. There's nothing more annoying than being killed by an enemy you can't see. Despite being so difficult it is a game that you want to persevere with and it is possible to make progress. It's just too hard for me to get any real enjoyment out of.
