As Sir Arthur, you have a challenging quest ahead of you: defeat the Prince of Darkness and rescue your damsel. GNG Code 2 gives you infinite lives, Code 3 multiplies your score by 10, and Codes 4 thru 13 start you on the level you choose. Code 14 will give you an advantage by charging up your power more quickly, but there must be at least one dot filled on the magic gauge for the code to work, and don't use it with the fireball.

Cheats For Ghouls 'N Ghosts
1InvincibilityTurn on the system and press reset four times. When the title screen appears, press A four times. Then press the directional pad up, down, left, and right. You should hear a chime. Press start to hear another chime, then hold down B and press start. The invincibility doesn't work when you fall into a chasm, get grabbed by a green hand in level 4, or get stamped by Loki's feet. If this invincibility doesn't work, try using Up, B, Down, B, Left, B, Right, and B until you hear the tone. Then hold B and press Start until the game begins.
2Change Game ColorsSelect invincibility and choose level 5. Pass the three Minstral Winds and the Cyclops on the wall, climb the ladders, and stand on the highest block. Walk to the edge facing the pit, turn around, and walk to the other end of the block. The game should automatically reset (if it doesn't, repeat the back and forth walking). Repeat the invincibility code, choose level 5 again, and repeat the pacing on the wall until the game resets again. Press Start on the title screen, and notice how strange the colors have become!
3Secret Bonus PointsAt the end of each stage you can grab the key and receive a bonus 5,000 points. Have the key on your left side, stand close to it, and jump towards the left. It takes a bit of practice to get the timing down. If you get the key as you begin your jump you should see the message 'Nice Catch!' and receive 5,000 extra points.
4Slow MotionTo play the game in slow motion, enter this code during the title screen: Up, A, Down, A, Left, A, Right, A. If you've done it correctly, you'll hear a tone. Press Start until Arthur appears, then pause the game and press B. You should be able to move Arthur now.
5Level SelectOn the title screen, wait for the words "Ghouls and Ghosts" to float down from the top of the screen. Then press up, down, left, and right. You should hear a short harplike sound. At this point, there are several different codes to enter to take you where you want to go:
  • The Execution Place - Start
  • The Floating Island on the Lake - A and Start
  • The Villiage of Decay - Up and Start
  • The Town of Fire - Up, A, and Start
  • Baron Rankle's Tower - Down and Start
  • Horrible Faced Mountain - Down, A, and Start
  • The Crystal Forest - Left and Start
  • The Ice Slopes - Left, A, and Start
  • Beginning of Castle - Right and Start
  • Middle of Castle - Right, A, and Start
  • Loki (final boss) - Down, Right, and Start
You can add the A button to the end of any of these codes to start in the middle, rather than the beginning, of the level.
6Japanese ModeSelect Option from the opening screen. Choose 26 for Music and 56 for Sound. Hold left on the control pad while pressing all three buttons and Start.
7Japanese Title ScreenFirst you insert a "Super Thunder Blade" cartridge and let the title screen appear. Then remove the cartridge without shutting off the power. Then insert the "Ghouls & Ghosts" cartridge and hit RESET and the title will appear in Japanese. [Disclaimer: As with any trick involving handling cartridges under power, perform at your own risk.]

Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Ghouls 'n' Ghosts
RELEASED:         1989
TYPE:             Platform
LANGUAGE:         English and Japanese (set console accordingly)

PREMISE:          O brave knight, save us from the Demon Lord and his
                  minions!  He has seized your love, the Princess, and
                  carried her away to his dark delvings.  Can you fight
                  your way through the many enemies and obstacles in you
                  path to save her - and her kingdom?  Ported from the
                  megahit arcade original, which was the sequel to the
                  legendary Ghosts 'n' Goblins.

IMPRESSIONS:      Colorful graphics and awesome gameplay.  Two gripes,
                  though.  First, once you jump, you're committed to a
                  landing spot even if an enemy pops up there.  Second,
                  after clearing the first six stages, you have to go back
                  and play through them a second time.  Still, it's worthy
                  of mention in the same breath as Sonic. (Rage Games)

VARIATIONS:       Dai Makai Mura (Japanese)

This game is simply a treat! This is yet another game that rips characters from a legend. This time you play Arthur who must save Guenivere once again from the clutches of Galamoth I think. Though similar to it's preddesecor Ghost and Goblins, Ghouls and Ghosts offers even more in the challenge department as well as the variety department. In Ghouls in Ghosts, you can get magic armor which allows your weapon a special attack. There's even more weapons this time around! The music is haunting and very cool. Just watch out for the challenge, @#%@$%! This game get's hard! Not to mention you have to go back to the beginning after beating it a first time. Definately recommended. I give it a 9. Oh and also check out Super Ghouls and Ghosts on snes and Ghosts and Goblins on nes.

This is a famous single player game among many platform,

Like many horizontal action game, you should have a good skill on memorizing the position of enemy and avoid be hit by the fire.
Unlike other similar game, you would need to familar with a many type of weapon, use which when they suite you. You would also interest in using the weapons power with the "gold armor".

In general, this game provides a good transition screen between each round, at least you can expect where the final stage was.
The control there can easily be handle.Both sounds and graphics are good among all mega drive games.

There are one drawback is that this game is too hard to complete, you need to go complete the games two time for a good endings. so you may spend a few hours for a single games.

While there would be a rewards to you, a secret weapon, when you complete the game first time.

To conclude, if you wish to see want genesis horizontal action games be like, and want to try a hard but interesting game, this would be your choice!

Man oh man, I thought ghost's n' goblins was good ;) This is almost perfect arcade translation to the genesis. Yeah, you have to complete the game cycle twice to see the ending, AND YOU NEED TO HAVE THE CRYSTAL BALL WEAPON THE SECOND TIME AROUND OR YOU WILL NEED TO GO THRU IT AGAIN UNTIL YOU DO!!!!! Just like having the cross in ghosts and goblins. IMHO Get the knife as soon as you can... It's a superior weapon especially coupled with the gold armor. Another diamond for the genesis.
