Super Ghouls N’ Ghosts
Another game that was released later that same year is the side-scrolling platformer that is 3rd in the Ghosts ‘n Goblins series. You play as King Arthur in your quest to rescue the princess. Along the way you are greeted with multiple enemies, each of them with various abilities and attack patterns.
You only need to get hit twice to lose one of your precious three lives that you have in total. And if you don’t think the enemies are tough enough, consider the fact that even the level itself is your enemy. It will be constantly changing and trying to mess you up. But you do have chests that will give you some cool loot, or kill you, because there are traps in them.
Now before we reveal our number 1 pick, let’s take a look at some honorable mentions:
Nethack, Metro 2033, Ghosts ‘N Goblins, Castlevania, N+
