    Are ya scared yet?



    Capcom resurrects the classic zombie-slaying adventure Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts for the Game Boy Advance.

    The Original Survival Horror Game

    Originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, this side-scrolling action title follows the fearless knight Arthur on his quest to save the beloved Princess Prin Prin. Players must jump, shoot and slash their way through eight merciless levels of old-school platforming for the privilege of facing the evil lord Sardius.

    Anyone who's played a Ghouls 'N Ghosts title before should be instantly at home with the control setup. Arthur begins his adventure with a set of basic armor and his trusty jousting spear. His main task is to dispatch the myriad of zombies, wolves and brigands lurking along the way. Each level also features its own unique end boss to defeat.

    Along your journey, you can find different types of weapons, each with its own fire and strength attributes. Armor upgrades allow Arthur to perform screen-clearing spell attacks.

    Not content with a simple port, Capcom has also included an expansive Remix Mode that adds plenty of replay value. This new mode of play alters the level designs and includes areas from the arcade version of Ghouls 'N Ghosts.

    Not only are the quests more difficult, but they will also branch off into new levels, depending on which armor you were wearing at the end of the previous level. Fortunately, there's a handy battery save feature that allows weary adventurers to take a break.

    If Looks Could Kill

    Players of the original version will be hard pressed to find graphical differences in the Game Boy Advance revision. All the original music and sound effects have also made the transition without missing a beat.

    Any Last Words?

    Fans of classic side-scrolling adventure games should definitely give Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts a go. Just be sure to pack plenty of patience because this game will push your skills to the limit.

Back of Box - SNES (UK):
    Draw Your Sword. The Quest Begins!

    You are Arthur, the boldest bladesman alive. You are caught in a dangerous quest. Fiendish foes and grim demons are about to hurl disaster your way!

    You must save the wondrous Princess Guinevere. But beware! The reeking ruler of the forbidden land can call forth evil and destruction. Who knows what creeping, leaping terrors haunt this dripping realm!

    You may lose your armour and your strength. You may be hexed. You may become a baby, a duck, or a skeleton! But you are never without a weapon. And magic awaits to help you.

    Destroy the witches, ogres and ghosts. Escape the snapping skulls and ghastly ghouls. And save Guinevere from the mysterious depths of the Phantom Zone in Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts!

    For One Player.

U.S. print ad (SNES):
    Three years ago, Sir Arthur rescued Princess Guinevere from the evil ruler of the Phantom Zone. Since then, he's acquired some very powerful weapons to defend his kingdom, in case it happens again. Well, it has. And this time, Sardius must be destroyed once and for all. It'll take every bit of magic you can conjure to escape the witches, ghosts and snapping skulls. But you can't stop until you complete your quest.

    Skulls and zombies fall from the sky as the ground shifts around you - better watch your step.

    Ghosts appear - and disappear - on the haunted seas, use your haunted sickle and you may survive - without it, say goodbye!
