Ghosts 'n Goblins overhaul for the GX4000 gets a great final alpha version!


Way back in 1985 Capcom released the start of one of the greatest side scrolling platform game series we have ever known. It featured a knight, creepy enemies, lots of graves and was extremely difficult to the point of frustration. The game I am talking about is of course ' Ghost 'N Goblins ', the first game in the Ghosts 'n Goblins franchise which appeared on many different systems such as the Amstrad, C64 and ZX Spectrum. And it is that game from the Amstrad CPC version which has now received a final alpha overhaul for the GX4000!


Ghosts 'n Goblins overhaul coded by Xifos is one of the best Amstrad "Remakes" we've played for some time as it's like we are playing a true Arcade 8bit version of the classic... But on the Amstrad! It features redesigned enemies, character detail change, an overhaul of the landscape graphics and the biggest change which everyone will notice is the smooth scrolling throughout each level using the capabilities of the GX4000 console!


Certainly a great release for the Amstrad GX4000, and we hope ends up as a fully finished game out of an Alpha state.
