The sequel to Capcom’s own Ghosts’n Goblins.
This game is proof we had zombies too! It was Arthur the Knights job to rescue the princess [of course]. While at the same time restoring the souls stolen by Lucifer (or strangely, Loki on the English spoken Sega versions).
It was no easier than the first game, still being listed in charts as one of the most difficult games ever. One way it did differ was that the player could shoot up & down (whilst in mid air).
It featured all kinds of great weapons & armour power-ups to help you fight off the demon hoards. That said though, within seconds you could be left running around in your boxers, close to death.
