The only thing more detrimental to your sanity than painstakingly beating one of the hardest games out there is having to do it twice. Ghosts 'n Goblins, with its sadistic sense of humour, forces you to do just that.
Predetermined jump arches and random enemy generation makes Ghosts 'n Goblins one hell of a tough customer. Not to mention the completely erratic and unpredictable movements of said enemies, it should come as no surprise to frequently get hung up on certain areas. Some of which might be too embarrassing to admit but that's ok, we've all been there.
With only two hits to spare before becoming nothing more than a bleached pile of bones, it's best to watch your step. It's also important to note, that if you don't keep a sharp eye on your surroundings, it's all too possible to end up with an axe (not so good) or a fireball, arguably the worst weapon in the entire game. If all else fails and the Ghosts 'n Goblins isn't doing you any favours, stick with the javelin or if you're lucky enough, grab the daggers as soon as they appear and don't look back.
It's not all bad though because once you trudge through for the second time and finally defeat the last boss yet again, the game rewards you with a much needed, gut-wrenching laugh.
Ahem... yeah. What more can be said... ENJOY!
