The second in the series was the worst for this, but Capcom started to get it right with the third, which is what we're about to play.
Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts is a Super NES exclusive (though later re-released on other platforms in compendium sets) and it's the best looking of the series. Better, in fact, than the stupid blur-vision PSP release which is polygonal and ass, and certainly better than the mostly annoying Maximo series for PS2 (which was almost awesome for coming with a free pair of boxer shorts).
Anyway. Download the ROM and play along. =)
