Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, Commodore 64

The Commodore 64 conversion of Ghouls ‘N Ghosts is surprisingly good, even though everything in it looks a bit tiny.

To achieve a playable scale the designer has shrunk the graphics down, and it does look a bit funny. I think they made the right call, though. It would’ve looked worse had they not adjusted the scale and probably wouldn’t be as playable as it is now.

Ghouls ‘N Ghosts on the C64 was developed by Software Creations for US Gold and published in 1989. It did reasonable business and was a hit with the fans and critics.

The game is well-programmed and nicely-polished and is a darn sight more playable than most Ghouls ‘N Ghosts conversions. Three severed thumbs up!
