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)

All bosses with all weapons would be fun, except apparently Ohme with sword is 100% impossible. Also again there's no room left.

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.

For a harder challenge for you hardcore bunch try the SNES version. It is MUCH tougher than this version.

Ghouls n' Ghosts, the Genesis version, is way harder than the "Slowdown" one... period.

guys, guys, ultimate victory checks for cheat codes if you beat it with cheat codes on you don't get victory.

The guy up there that requested a no continue run, you have ruined my life.

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

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).
