The Megadrive/Genesis conversion of Ghouls ‘N Ghosts is one of the very best conversions out there. In my opinion, second only to Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts on the SNES (and of course the original arcade game).
Megadrive Ghouls ‘N Ghosts was reprogrammed by Sega and published on cartridge in 1990. And it has to be said that Sega did a marvellous job. The graphics are a work of pixel artistry; the gameplay is challenging and precise; there’s a practise mode that allows you to explore a bit more of the game than you might normally see. I’m not a hundred percent sure, but I’m convinced I saw stuff in this that I hadn’t seen anywhere else – not even in the arcade game. I must be wrong… It could be because I got further in this version than any of the others.
Ghouls ‘N Ghosts was an early release for the Sega Megadrive and it really showed what the console was capable of. It also still holds up well to this day. A testament to its greatness.
