On phone : It's exactly like the arcade version from way back. Awesome. PLEASE though, PLEASE make it so the control scheme you pick doesn't change after you start a new game or after backing out of the app. That will get 5 stars for sure. Great job devs On tablet, no background graphics, just enemies and you. Can make it through 1st level, then impossible to play/please fix!
I would give it 5 instead of 3 stars if it had controller (moga) support. Without that, it is not so much fun, control is too unprecise, error-prone and slow for such a demanding game.
I'm a huge fan of classic Capcom arcade games, and Ghosts N Goblins is one of the greats. It's a perfect re-creation graphics and sound wise, and the controls are much better than I expected. A lot of these games are just to frustrating to play using touchscreen based controls, but Capcom has figured it out pretty well here. This thing is definitely playable!
Here's the thing, I think the touchscreen controls are actually quite good....on a phone, but on a tablet they are impossible. I believe the price point is more than fair, but I would've gladly paid more if this game had controller support
Great game, an all time classic. But the fact that you can't select your control scheme before starting the game or have it save your control preferences for the next time you play is a major issue. The moment the game starts you're in danger, so it's pretty difficult to find a point where you can pause, change it, and then not be immediately attacked when you resume the game.
Please give us game controller support, it's a real heart breaking letdown to only have touchscreen controls. Anyone who's ever played the original knows it's a great classic platformer that demands more precise control system than touch controls.
