Gargoyle's Quest ~ Ghosts 'N Goblins
(known as Red Arremer ~ Makaimura Gaiden in
Game released for the Nintendo Gameboy in 1990. Simple, yet functional and detailed graphics fitting the Gameboy capabilities. Good music, though a bit repetitive. This game is pretty good despite the short amount of time needed to complete it. Has a really simple and easy to crack password system (with some random password experiments, you could sometimes end up near the end of the game with no power ups, for instance). Has some standard RPG elements, like random battles while walking through the overworld map, action commands and strengh bonuses, plus some interaction with other beings in towns or castles. However, this game is still an action/platform packed beauty.
A long, long time ago, the Ghoul Realm barely escaped a great peril. A large army of destroyers came from a neighbouring universe. The creatures of the Ghoul Realm were no match for the powerful destroyers. Just when everyone had given up hope, a great fire swept over the realm, wiping out the destroyers army.
Several hundred years have passed from these events, and the ghoul realm faces this threat once again. A young red gargoyle, Firebrand, who was in a mission in another dimension at that time, after learning about this peril will have to return to the ghoul realm, face the destroyers and fulfill the legend of the red blaze.
