Looks cool.  Were these games inspired by Ghost'n Goblins?

What do you reckon?  :10:

A8 version looks very...brown :-)

Off top of my head G 'N' G clones:

Beyond The Ice Palace 8/16 Bit micros and Fire And Brimstone Amiga (kinda Norse take on it).

Domain Of The Undead A8 (poor).

Ghastly Knight A8.

Deadly Evil C64

Dragons Kingdom C64

Ghost Battle ST.

Probably the most notorious G N G rip-off is this game by Codemasters for the ST and Amiga:

Amiga Longplay [232] The Sword And The Rose

Yes, you did read the length of the video right - that is the whole game!!!  :o

Had a quick look into the Amiga version, hmmn, bit sloppy on the coding side of things 1 Meg Amiga's only, Arthur cannot turn around in mid-jump as he could on C64 coin-op, yet you could on C64 i seem to recal, poor diagonal scrolling to boot.
