Ghosts 'n Goblins - Overhaul in development for the Amstrad CPC Plus

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 ' Ghosts 'N Goblins ', the first game in the Ghosts 'n Goblins franchise which appeared on many different systems such as the Amstrad, C64 and even the ZX Spectrum. So for those of you who remember playing the game, especially on the Amstrad, will be pleased to know a far better version is coming, so read on!

Now you may have already seen the Shadow of the Beast demo shown off on the Amstrad CPC Plus, which impressed pretty much everyone who saw it. But this latest tease (15mins) which was mentioned by Dlfrsilver, looks to take the classic game Ghosts 'N Goblins and give it a much needed Amstrad Plus overhaul with coding by Golem13, Graphics by Winner and Sound/FX by Ixien. Basically not only will it run far smoother with lovely smooth scrolling, but the graphics will be as close to the Arcade version as possible but at a lower resolution when it finally arrives on a website near you!
