Plot. The kingdom where Arthur lives, is celebrating for some unknown occasion. The brave knight reunites with his beloved Prin Prin, but the demons prepare to capture her once again. During an emotional moment, a demon breaks inside the castle, and captures the princess. Arthur is set out once again on his quest to save her, and defeat Astaroth (Romaji: Asutaroto) once again, and his other two allies: Nebiroth and Sardius.
Concept. Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts features new gameplay, enhanced graphics and sound, surpassing it's predecessor. The game is comprised of 8 different levels, and most of them can be very nerve-wrecking. The levels will put your skills to the test. If you're not careful with how you play, you will lose a life. Also the game introduced new bosses and enemies. Some of the enemies of the first game make a comeback. When players defeat Nebiroth for the first time, they are told by the princess to get her bracelet, which holds the power to defeat Sardius, so they are returned all the way to the beginning, so they can find it on any treasure chest that appears.
Music. The music theme is rearranged and it's much better than before. The Game Boy Advance version has music and stages from the first two games. The theme song of the Ice Forest happens to fit the area, and it's really catchy.
Tips and Strategies. The double jump makes an improvement for this game, which was not featured in the first game. Also, for bosses, the Death Crawler happens to be a boss that is fun to fight with, but you have to watch out for the rocks that it spits, it may come falling down from above, or attacking you side by side.
Rantings. I still hate the Red Arremers, they are even worse than Medusa Heads in Castlevania. What I also hate is how you have to do everything again until you find the bracelet. Are you kidding me? But then some people would tell me: "But it's Capcom's way with this game, it's very old, cut it some slack! Blah, blah, blah!" Adding to my most hated enemies list in this game is the mimics, they really piss me off. Me and my sister agreed that also the trap treasures are annoying, because a wizard appears casting powerful magic to turn you into a bee, a maiden, a baby, and so on. But in one way it was funny.
Good Aspects. I like this a lot more than the first game because, the graphics are much more improved and the double jump was the best addition that the first game never had before. The game also has a lot of replay value, despite it's even more staggering difficulty. The game's remake on the GBA was the same, but the good thing was the "Arrange" Mode, in which featured the worlds of the first two games. It is also playable on Capcom Classics Collection on the PS1, Sega Saturn, PS2, and so on.
Overall. The game is really good, and it's a cult classic among old school players like myself. This game gets a 9 out of 10
