And NICE CATCH TROPPHY... Few people do this when defeat the boss!
5 Aug 4:28 2015
50k score should get you close to the end of the game without a continue. So if you can do that you can likely win the no continue trophy. The score just allows you to do it differently if you like running back and fourth farming score points.

I considered the key catching easter egg. I couldnt get it to work very well, except jumping over the key. So i thought it would annoy players more than anything.
5 Aug 5:30 2015
I dont need farm to get 100,000 points but i can easily finish without continue . Today i finished the game making 138,000 without continuing and no farm .
5 Aug 5:31 2015
Key is not an easter egg . This is not the way to get the NICE CATCH. And to explain here as it does not make sense the request of the trophy plus assure you , is not how you handle this detail , simply use the control for it.
5 Aug 5:47 2015
Everytime i get the key Sirus... kkk!
5 Aug 12:04 2015
A little bit easy :/A no-continue run would be interesting. And beating all the bosses with all the weapons too (one for each boss/weapon)
6 Aug 5:29 2015
All bosses with all weapons would be fun, except apparently Ohme with sword is 100% impossible. Also again there's no room left.
6 Aug 5:31 2015
I identified the NICE CATCH trigger in memory. But what I meant is, its easy to do if u let it hit the ground, then jump over it. This is a programming flaw in the original game.
6 Aug 5:51 2015
For a harder challenge for you hardcore bunch try the SNES version. It is MUCH tougher than this version.
6 Aug 8:02 2015
I prefer this version, outterside this version is more HARDCORE then Super Slowdown Ghosts...kkkk.
8 Aug 8:45 2015
Alright, because of popular demand i've added a no-continue achievement. This one is a monster guys good luck.
8 Aug 12:45 2015
Yeah ! Thank you ! Let's try it !
10 Aug 22:17 2015
Super Slowdown Ghosts!!! Haha good one :p I like both.. the snes one IS harder though you're right!
20 Sep 19:39 2015
We need more achievements here. :P
18 Oct 0:26 2015
Ghouls n' Ghosts, the Genesis version, is way harder than the "Slowdown" one... period.

Great game!
26 Jan 19:06 2017
guys, guys, ultimate victory checks for cheat codes if you beat it with cheat codes on you don't get victory.
2 Nov 6:45 2017
The guy up there that requested a no continue run, you have ruined my life.
21 Nov 13:05 2018
All the achievements allow for the stage skip except "Ultimate Victory" and "Defeat Lucifer". None allow the debug or slowmo cheat.
