Trivia

References to the game

The game was used in A Bit Of Fry & Laurie comedy sketch show. It was involved in one of the sketch belonging to the last episode of the Series 4. The game was a subject of debate between a sullen teenager and his father, played by Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry respectively.

Another interesting piece of trivia is that in the show, the character played by Laurie claims that the game ends after level nine (and actually stops playing, when he supposedly finishes it), whereas, in fact, Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts has only eight stages.

Version differences

The crosses featured in Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts are altered from the Japanese version of the game. In the Japanese version, they look just like church crosses, but in the American and European versions, the the crosses are altered to have a circle-shaped top. This is obviously due to Nintendo of America's strict censorship system at the time.
