Spooky games for Halloween: Day 7
Ghosts and goblins are everywhere, watch out! Yeah that's right, today we are going to talk about that classic 1985 Capcom arcade game, Ghosts'n Goblins. This was one of the greatest, hardest, creepiest games ever made. You played as Sir Arthur, a knight on a quest to save the Princess Prin Prin (ha ha, what a great name) from none other than the ruler of the Demon World, Satan. On your quest to save the princess, you must battle dragons, zombies, cyclopes, demons and of course, plenty of ghosts and goblins.

If you remember anything about this game, it's probably how much money you wasted at the arcade trying to get to level 2. Here's some info that might make that loss feel better after all those years. Ghosts'n Goblins is now generally considered to be one of the hardest arcade games ever made. As a series, it was voted the 2nd most difficult game ever made (in the world) by, so don't feel too bad that you never beat it. Not many people did.You might have better luck with some of the later games in the series, but not the original.

The problem was that you could only be hit twice by anything before you died. The first time would knock your armor off, leaving Sir Arthur running around in his underwear until the end of the level, or until you found a power-up. The hard gameplay is part of what made it so terrifying to play. You could die at any second, so your heart rate was always through the roof, and the pace was relentless. There's something to be said for the simple difficulty of old platform games like this. Today you can play an amazingly complex game, but still finish it in a day or two. Good luck beating Ghosts'n Goblins in a day. You'll tear your hair out after the first run through when you think you just beat him, only to find out that the last level was a 'trap devised by Satan' and now you need to do the whole game over from the start at a higher difficulty. Oh, and there's no saving your game right before you hit the hard part. Just start over again. Mwahahaha!
