Ghosts n Goblins first appeared in 1985 and was a milestone in video game history. A little knight called Arthur jumped and fought his way through hordes of zombies, vampires and ogres on the consoles and home computers of the day.
In the following decades, Arthur would take to the field against the demonic host in recurring editions of the classic game. Now in 2021, just in time for his 35th birthday, he returns in Ghosts n Goblins Resurrection.
The game is an action platformer that literally leads Arthur through hell. Thats because his true love, Princess Guinevere, has been taken captive by the Demon Lord and taken to his infernal realm.
To rescue her, Arthur has to battle zombies, skeletons, dragons and other monsters. Luckily he has numerous weapons, including lances, daggers, hammers and spiked balls.
The game remains one of the most difficult jumping games of all time, one that has caused generations of game fans to curse as zombies spontaneously jumped out of the earth and killed the knight.
The latest edition brings something new: Arthur can now cast magic spells against his opponents, such as unleashing a hailstorm of bolts in four directions.
Ghosts n Goblins Resurrection is available for the Nintendo Switch and costs around US$30 (RM123.54). dpa
