So I finally decided to start building a collection of all Ghouls and Ghosts (Makaimura) games! I just love these games, they are unforgiven but once you begin to play them you can’t stop. So far I played through the Super Ghouls and Ghosts game (which is the only orgininal copy I own so far) and Ghouls and Ghosts for Mega Drive. Anyone else here likes these series?

I always thought they were pretty cool but alas I’ve never seen past the second stage. I know that’s pretty bad but I’ve never been that good at most games. My brother on the other hand goes all Rainman on them. I’ve never taken the time to really practice that game. Since you brought it up I do have a question maybe you could answer why is the NES game Ghosts n’ Goblins and the SNES game Super Ghouls & Ghosts? Why do you think the name changed?

Thats a good question, I can’t seem to find any information on this in the net. Could be copyright issues or just the fact the ghouls and ghosts sounds better, the japanese versions are all titled Makaimura (Demon World Village).

i also love the series, i can remember when i was a young boy i played ghouls and ghosts on my c64, i have never beat it, but i tried it a hundred times… glory times… 😉

My collection so far:

Ghouls and Ghosts (PAL) Master System
Dai Makaimura (NTSC) Mega Drive
Cho Makaimura (NTSC) Super Famicom
Makaimura Gameboy Advance

More to follow as soon as there is fresh money on my bank account 😉

Here is a mockup of a possible Makaimura game for our beloved VB! Anyone here is willing to do a VB port? 😀
