In Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts, you take on the role of Arthur, the boldest knight in the land. You must rescue Princess Guinevere, who has been captured by the evil emperor Sardius and spirited away to the slimy crypts of the Phantom Zone. As you journey through the eight quests in this game, you'll be haunted and challenged by any number of undead creatures, such as zombies, skeletons, vampires and man-eating plants. It seems the Ghoul Realm has revived and the entire kingdom has been shrouded under an eerie spell.
You begin the adventure wielding a deadly lance and decked out in an ordinary suit of armor. As you run, jump, battle and climb your way through the game, you will find in your pathway daggers, crossbows, scythes, torches, axes and tri-blades. When you gain a new weapon, you will forfeit your old one. Special weapons of enchantment, such as magic versions of the standard weapons, will appear only when you are wearing the bronze or golden armor, both of which can be found at various points in the game. The golden armor will also let you perform seven different magic spells that can do such things as expose hidden treasure, summon a fire dragon and disintegrate all onscreen enemies.
As you would expect, the setting for this game is combination of fantasy and horror. Among other terror-filled levels, you'll travel through a haunted graveyard, scale the icy walls of a palace, brave a fierce blizzard, traverse a fearsome forest and journey through a rotting sea. At the end of each quest, you must destroy a boss character called a Foul Guardian. A plethora of obstacles, creatures and treasures lie between you and the Throne Room, a place where only the power of Guinevere's enchanted bracelet can destroy Sardius. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
