Graphics are far from dazzling but then the arcade original is on the crusty side. Bright and cartoon-like, scrolling's fine, but animation and effects are mediocre. Unfortunately, this conversion lacks the fantastic playability of either the coin-op or Elites brilliant C64 version. It's still a fun product - jaunts through graveyards are always fun - and warrants gameplaying attention.
The ST game looks good and plays well but sound lets it down.
ST Format (Jul, 1990)
It's inevitable that Ghosts 'n' Goblins is going to be compared to US Gold's conversion of the sequel, and the programmers must be incensed that their rivals made such a good job of it. Unfortunately they only have themselves to blame. Even though the arcade version's graphics were hardly spell-binding, that's absolutely no excuse for ignoring the full potential of the ST.
Power Play (Aug, 1990)
Mit ziemlicher Verspätung ist die ST-Umsetzung des actionlastigen Geschicklichkeits-Tests "Ghosts'n' Goblins" eingetrudelt. Im Gegensatz zur MS-DOS-Version wurden hier praktisch alle Features des Arcade-Vorbildes übernommen.
Bei der denkbar unproblematischen Umsetzung der Spielidee hat Elite jedoch nicht darauf verzichtet, ein paar störende Macken mit einzubauen - um den Spieler bei schlechter Laune zu halten. Die ST-Version ist zu schnell und die Steuerung etwas unpräzise, was zu hektischem und schwer kontrollierbarem Spiel führt.
