Everytime i get the key Sirus... kkk!
Rufio 5 Aug 2015 12:04
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)
sirus2000 6 Aug 2015 05:29
All bosses with all weapons would be fun, except apparently Ohme with sword is 100% impossible. Also again there's no room left.
sirus2000 6 Aug 2015 05:31
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.
sirus2000 6 Aug 2015 05:51
For a harder challenge for you hardcore bunch try the SNES version. It is MUCH tougher than this version.
celsoaffini 6 Aug 2015 08:02
I prefer this version, outterside this version is more HARDCORE then Super Slowdown Ghosts...kkkk.
sirus2000 8 Aug 2015 08:45
Alright, because of popular demand i've added a no-continue achievement. This one is a monster guys good luck.
Rufio 8 Aug 2015 12:45
Yeah ! Thank you ! Let's try it !
JonnyRetro 10 Aug 2015 22:17
Super Slowdown Ghosts!!! Haha good one :p I like both.. the snes one IS harder though you're right!
clevertonheusner 20 Sep 2015 19:39
We need more achievements here. :P
RogerMDR 18 Oct 2015 00:26
Ghouls n' Ghosts, the Genesis version, is way harder than the "Slowdown" one... period.
vigia 18 Mar 2016 03:40
Great game!
jonahHill99 26 Jan 2017 19:06
guys, guys, ultimate victory checks for cheat codes if you beat it with cheat codes on you don't get victory.
Arcana1986 2 Nov 2017 06:45
The guy up there that requested a no continue run, you have ruined my life.
kdecks 21 Nov 2018 13:05
All the achievements allow for the stage skip except "Ultimate Victory" and "Defeat Lucifer". None allow the debug or slowmo cheat.
Wickerman1972 1 Jan 2021 18:48
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.
Throgg 4 Jan 2021 18:45
Good set, challenging but not super ridiculous
SegaJAM 27 Feb 2021 01:19
PROTIP: Play the (Rev A) version of Ghouls 'n Ghosts! Some achievements will not pop on the base rom but no problems on (Rev A).
RandoT 14 Aug 2021 22:24
Thanks SegaJAM! <3

Infernomo won't pop for me.
