I’ve been playing a lot of classic games lately and i must say that Super Ghouls N’ Ghosts for the SNES is probably one of the hardest games I’ve ever played in my life.
It is seriously hair pulling fun.On my own, I’ve only got as far as the second part of stage 2.Now, i didn’t realize it at the time, but the difficulty was still set on normal.
So i decided to use the cheat code to skip stages just to check them out.
I put the game on easy.
Still died every 5 seconds.
Now, I’m no skillful gamer…but usually if i play something relentlessly, i can get pretty good at it, or at LEAST complete the game half assed.
Not this game though. Been playing it off and on for over 10 years and i still suck at it.
You can bump up your lives to 9, and you get 7 continues, but it really does you no good.Cause once you die, unless you hit the 2nd or 3rd part of a stage, you’re sent back to the beginning. And you would think you wouldn’t make the same mistake twice…but the games programming is kinda strange.The enemies seem to move in different patterns every time you play.Now, they always appear in the same place…well most of them.But for some reason if you try to kill a ghost the same way you did before…you get hit.
Now heres the thing wit dis mother fucker.You get 2 hits.1 Hit, you go from Armor to underwear, then 2nd hit, you turn into bones.
Then you’re back to the beginning or where ever it was you started from.
Heres a rare treat:
Some poor bald person has completed the game. How you may ask? Probably took a SNES rom and hacked it so he could get a screen shot of the end of the game. I’ve seen the big boss at the end.I guess it’s Lucifer. He’s freakin’ huge.And you have to jump on these platforms to hit him…while lasers for some reason are flailing out of him.
Anyway, my point is, this game rocks.It’s a GREAT game.
But it makes me want to run over Jews with a car I’ve stolen from a nun.
It’s later sequels “Maximo” for the PS2 were not THIS hard.
But what do you expect? EVERY other “Ghosts” game was a bitch. The arcade.The NES version. The sega genesis version.
But this…this take the taco.
Give it whirl.
I dare you.
