Super Ghouls and Ghosts Mastery Guide/Review

Hi Guys and Welcome to my HUGE
SUPER GHOULS AND GHOSTS
MASTERY GUIDE
This is a pure mastery guide of the title "Super Ghouls and Ghosts", rated one of the most frustrating and hardest plat formers on a given system.

Before I move to the step by step guide by levels, here is some advice....
1. Don't expect to Master this game in a day:
This game was designed to frustrate and push even game masters to the edge. It requires practice, perfect jumps, and avoiding cheap deaths. This is the modern day Ninja Gaiden for the NES if you understand what I mean.

2. Above all else, trust your instincts:
I know this sounds corny, but especially by boss standards they will try to predict your movements and will sometimes stray off their designated patterns, just take your time and understand that the AI isn't as stupid as you expect it to be.

3. Take your time!:
Nowadays individuals speed through a game and "speed runs" are prominent, but this game is notorious for punishing players who cut corners. unless you have memorized every nook and cranny, take your time! I spent a full 3 minutes and 50 seconds in stage 1, simply because I didn't want to lose my armor and have a harder time on stage 2!

4. Above all else, never ignore the Red Demon:
This may sound like a stupid rule, but this couldn't be more important than anything. Normally monsters in this game will disappear or be stationary when you walk away from them. The red demon is different and merciless stopping at nothing to dive after you. He will follow you, even to the boss. You either kill him when you see him, or you die, no questions asked.

5. When in doubt, double jump: Most stages have secret chests, and all they involve is simply being higher than normal in a certain part of the stage. Even stages 7 and 8 have secret chests and let you upgrade to gold armor with shield upgrade if you find them all.

(If you see // this means I'm talking about a chest that is secret.)
Stage 1: The Graveyard
The Layout of the graveyard is simple, and on normal difficulty pretty easy. If you're brave and have it on hard, the graves will actually come out of the ground and float out of the ground being annoying, and the zombies will sometimes sprint towards you.

//First thing is getting the treasure chest at the far left of the beginning of the stage by double jumping, should have a weapon in it. Only pick the weapon up if it's the dagger or the arrows, but don't pick up the arrows if you're playing hard difficulty because it will make your life harder. Keep moving forward until you see the first gravestone;

//Literally "walk off" without jumping from the first gravestone to reveal the second chest and the copper armor. keep going, and get to the first caged area with a fire guy inside. Jump into the cage, kill the fire guy, and take your time and clear out the area of the wolf and most zombies.

// You'll find another chest between the cage you came out of and the tombstone in that area by double jumping.

// As you move forward you'll encounter another cage area, simply go in, kill the monster before he uses his shot on you, and you'll see another chest above you.
Get the chest, you should have the gold armor, shield upgrade, and hopefully a weapon you like. go forward and meet up with the ocean area. You need to go from gravestone to gravestone. when you hear the wave coming, go to a gravestone and stay there, or you'll die. kill the enemies and take your time jumping over their eye projectile if necessary.

// A Chest will appear on one of the gravestones, shoot it from a safe distance if you don't have the dagger to possibly get the dagger, otherwise keep going.

You'll finally get to an overgrown area full of puff balls that explode.

// Right at the beginning of the overgrown area, by double jumping you'll find another chest, useful if you've lost your armor or have died.

You'll also find that there are fiery carts you need to jump over to avoid. They’re not in any particular area where you'll find yourself in a particularly hard jump, so take your time and you'll be ok. The last 2 chests reveal themselves automatically, while jumping over a cart and right before the boss, but shouldn't be opened unless you are missing armor or you don't have the dagger.
Boss: Big Bird
This Boss is a pushover, whatever weapon you're using just jump once and shoot it in the head. it's head will extend but you should be within a safe distance away from it so it won't bother you. if it shoots an egg out, shoot the egg to stop it from rolling, then wait for it to hatch and deal with the minion before the big bird, so you don't get distracted. When the boss dies, it'll drop a key, if you're pro and you’re at 20k points you gained an extra life, congratulations. Take the key, and get prepped for stage 2.
Stage 2: Over the Undead Sea
You’ll probably call me an idiot, but this is honestly one of the hardest levels in this game. You NEED to memorize the second half of this level for the second playthrough, or you can lose lives and even continues from this stage. The first half is jumping around a sinking ship, the second is an automatically scrolling water ride filled with piranha’s spitting plants, spikes, and aggravation.


(More being posted tomorrow!)
