Ghosts 'N Goblins
The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987)
A DEVIL OF A FIGHT
The beautiful princess has been kidnapped by the Devil and imprisoned in Hades. Her one true love, a gallant knight in shining armor, sets out to rescue her armed with one of five different weapons and great skill. But he must overcome demons, dragons, giants, and zombies to get through the seven guarded gates. And ultimately, he must fight with the Devil himself!
GAME PLAY: You are the knight that must save the princess, and your weapons are a javelin, torch, sword, axe and a cross. Gain a suit of armor and you can live through the first fatal blow of an attacker. Look for hidden characters that give you another player or extend your life, but beware of flames that shoot up from the sea of fire. As you destroy the evil enemy demons, a key appears from the sky. This key opens the next gate. There are many friends and foes in the land of Ghosts 'N Goblins. It's a devil of a challenge.
