Video Game Classics: Ghosts 'N Goblins
Debuting in the arcades, this adventure game was quickly ported to several platforms, including the Nintendo Entertainment System. Taking place in the dark ages, players play the role of Sir Arthur, a knight who must rescue Princess Prin Prin. As the game opens, she has been kidnapped by Satan and taken to the Demon World. On his long and perilous quest, Arthur must battle a slew of undead creatures, including zombies, ogres, dragons and spirits. To help him accomplish this, players must pick up and make use of various weapons, power-ups and armour. Insanely difficult, it is considered to be one of the most challenging video games ever created. In this retrospective, WatchMojo.com takes a look back at Capcom's medieval action adventure Ghosts 'N Goblins.
