Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is a classic 2D fantasy platformer focused on fighting with enemies. The game was developed by the Japanese company Capcom. The game was developed to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of Ghosts 'n Goblins, the first instalment of the series, which came to the arcade in 1985. The game is also inspired by its sequel Ghouls 'n Ghosts, which was published three years later. Both games have been relaunched many times on different hardware platforms.

Plot

In Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection we take on the role of a brave knight named Arthur. His mission is to save a princess who has been kidnapped and imprisoned by a demon lord. However, before the hero reaches the place, he will have to travel a long way and destroy countless evil minions, including all kinds of undead and other fantastic creatures.

Mechanics

The gameplay model of Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is very similar to the first two games in the series. So we are dealing here with a classic 2D platformer, in which we are going through a series of linear levels ended with boss fights. The maps are filled with enemies, with whom we fight with the lance thrown by the hero. When we are surrounded, we can also avoid them by jumping sideways.

Arthur's life bar is his armour, which he loses completely after one or more enemy attacks. At the very end, the hero stays in the boxers, so after another contact with the enemy we end the game and have to start again.

The series is known to challenge even the most ardent fans of platformers. In its new version, the developers did not want to abandon this tradition. However, due to the less experienced players, they have implemented three difficulty levels, which determine the maximum number of attacks that a hero can receive before he dies.

Technical aspects

Ghosts'n Goblins Resurrection has a colourful 2D graphic design made in a comic book style, recalling the graphic style of the originals. There is also an intensive soundtrack.
