Ghosts ‘N Goblins Sure Looks Grim As A Current-Gen Game

Dayshot: Ghosts ‘n Goblins sure looks grim as a current-gen game. The shots are from a seven-week, eight-person student project where the goal was to “recreate the classic game with a next-gen look in Unreal Engine 4”. Well, they succeeded. The fruits of their labours, a two-minute video and five HD shots, are below.

Dayshot showcases some of the prettiest, funniest game-related screenshots and art that we can find.


  • Graphics are interesting. Looks ok for 7 weeks. Needs a *lot* of work on the animation though.

    Can’t help but feel a 2d approach with 3d graphics would’ve been better though…

    • I don’t remember being able to walk anywhere in GnG for more than about 3 seconds without something attacking me with the sole purpose of stripping me of my armour, then killing me, then making me put another $1 in the machine.

      That said, I’d still probably still play anything with GnG name attached to it. At least for a little while, I say remembering the Golden Axe reboot.

        • I forgot about Maximo. I do remember enjoying it, though.

          I have a Vita (and a PS3), so I probably don’t need an emulator. Does it hold up? So many of those old games always seem shinier in your memory. I do remember playing the original GnG on MAME many years ago and enjoying it. For a little while, anyway. My tolerance for bastard-hard platforming has lessened as I’ve got older and grumpier.

      • The only GnG I have is the one on SNES. For a while I was actually considering picking up a PSP for GnG Ultimate, among a few other things. Pretty much all old games like Mega Man and Castlevania, not much else in the PSP library interested me 😛

        • Super Ghouls’n’Ghosts was the best. I remember spending countless hours mastering each level, finally getting to the final boss, killing him – only to be told I had to complete the game AGAIN with a stupid amulet or something equipped.

          I still claim that I finished that game…

          • Hahaha yeah. So much rage when that message came up 😛

            But I went back and did it 😎
            Even if I did have my lives turned up to max…

          • Not infinite. I think it was a max of 9?

            Or… I can’t remember now, there was an option for either lives or continues. Or maybe both.

          • Hmmm too long ago to remember, I may have used the same option but can’t be sure. There’s no way I have the patience (or time for that matter) to complete those types of games anymore.
