Yes, I do feel my 'strongth' returning!

Really didn't need a flash there...
...or, maybe I just feel better because my thumbs stopped bleeding.

So, I did eventually finish Ghosts 'n Goblins last night, which is less a testament to my mad gaming skills than it is to a lot of continues. If this had been in the arcade, how many quarters would it have eaten, and how long would I have had to stay at that game? Too many, and too long.

I mentioned before that Ghosts 'n Goblins was thought to be the second-most difficult game, presumably of it's time or the arcades; but it didn't mention the most difficult one. Also, like I said, I had to go back to level four since I didn't have the shield as my weapon; then when you beat the last boss, the game tells you that was an illusion from Satan (!) and you have to play the whole game again to rescue the princess. Bastards! Level five is the killer, since there's no midpoint, and you have to finish it in one shot.

Well, I guess now I could start on the sequel, Ghouls 'n Ghosts. Uh, maybe later.
