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.
18 Mar 3:40 2016
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.

The SNES game is a different game altogether, a sequel. There is another version on the Supergrafx though that is harder and the visuals are a bit better.

Good set, challenging but not super ridiculous
