Ghouls n' Ghosts

This is a recreation of the famous Ghouls ‘n Ghosts game. This was developed for a “Ludology” module in my first year of University. In this I had to choose a game to recreate using Game Maker.

The game has the following features:

  • Different outfits (in briefs or armour)
  • The player can be transformed into a baby by a wizard
  • Different weapons (spear and axe)
  • Reapers that fall from the sky
  • Birds that chase the player when the player passes them
  • Rain effect
  • Particle effects (using Game Maker’s in-built particle effects)

The game lasts around 3 minutes, however due to its difficulty level (which replicates the difficulty in the original game); the game would likely take a lot longer.
