When you’re having vintage arcade game night with your friends, or anytime you want to go old school with your gaming, break out your Japanese Sega Master System and play this version of the Ghouls ‘n Ghosts game. Playing classic Sega arcade games like Ghouls ‘n Ghosts is a lot of fun, and it’s a way to create some great memories with friends or family members. If you enjoy video game history, playing early games can help you watch technology advance by comparing this Sega game that was released in 1989 to more recent games. Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, released in 1989, is the sequel to the Sega game, Ghost ‘n Goblins, which was released in 1985. Both games tell a modern tale of the classic Camelot, updated with early animated graphics from Japan. Follow along with the storyline started in the Goblins cartridge as the legend continues in this one, or just pick up where this new segment of the spooky legend starts. As you play these Sega games, you get to live out a lifelong fantasy of being a young King Arthur riding to the rescue of his sweet future queen Guinevere while decked out in a beautiful suit of armor. Battle all kinds of random ghouls, like demons, vultures, ghosts, goblins, skeletons, flaming werewolves, and treacherous poisonous flowers in the quest to set the lovely princess free from the grips of the evil King Loki in these games. In the Ghouls ‘n Ghosts game version for Sega Genesis, you start the adventure having a picnic in a graveyard with Guinevere when she gets kidnapped by King Loki. As you start to play the game, you embark on the adventure with a sword and you have opportunities to find other weaponry along the way, including a dagger, fire water, and a discus. You’ll need to find other weapons before the final stages of the Sega version of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts game that happens in the Castle of Evil Demons, because after your long search, you have to be prepared, plus you need to play well. King Loki and a giant bee fight hard to preserve their captive, and they are tough to beat, so beware. Ghouls ‘n Ghosts games have a rating of E for everyone, and there is some animated violence as Arthur works his way through the quest to find his lady love. But, this vintage game was around before cheats were a thing, so be ready to play your way through a challenging but fun game.
