One of the most recalled arcade machine video games of the 80s', and that eventually landed on other platforms such as Nintendo's NES, PC or Spectrum, was definitely Capcom's Ghosts'n Goblins. This video game that brings together classic concepts of platformers has been revived thanks to the retro frenzy that we're currently experiencing and can now be played on smartphones, whether iOS and Android as we can now download its APK installation file.
A legendary arcade platformer
With enhanced graphics but without losing the slightest hint of the charm that conquered us three decades ago, Ghosts'n Goblins puts us in the role of the brave knight Sir Arthur that has to face up against a dark world in order to rescue princess Prin-Prin from her kidnappers. Ghosts, undead and all sorts of monsters and demons will try to stop us.
Although adapted to mobile platforms, it fully recovers the essence of its classic version.
We'll be able to make use of different weapons and special protections to advance along the platforms and fight against the fearsome final bosses of each level, as the norms of this kind of video game require.
- Special weapons and armors that you'll lose with every blow you receive.
- Epic battles against final bosses: dragons, demons, cyclopes...
- Touchscreen controls optimized for iPhone.
- Two game modes: casual and classic.
- Global leaderboards.
- Unlock different achievements.
You can't download it for free but that doesn't matter because it isn't expensive (about two dollars) and it's really worth it because it brings back one of the genre's greatest classics. Now we've only got to wait for its sequel that was released a few years later, Ghouls'n Ghosts, and that we hope to be able to download soon.
