Even in unfinished form, Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins is a blast to play. The action is deceptively simple - you'll toss an unlimited supply of metal weaponry at zombies, demons, big-ass Cyclopes and whatever else stands in your way (and like in Ghouls 'n Ghosts, you'll be able to toss said weaponry straight up or down as well as sideways). And it all feels perfect, whether you're double-jumping across a wide chasm or rapidly lobbing a dozen daggers into a tree covered in giant eyeballs.
And then there are the bosses: huge, devious beasts that include a floating sorcerer with a goat skull for a head, some sort of one-eyed storm cloud that kept belting us with lightning and a giant slug made of caustic snot. They're usually only strong enough to rob you of one or two lives, but good luck making it to them with that many intact.
