's first and best cart
for the Game Boy
. It's an RPG
of Capcom's Ghouls'n Ghosts
series. Released in 1990
A long time ago a large alien force
known only as the Destroyer
s came from a neighbouring universe and attack
ed the Ghoul Realm
. The creature
s of the Ghoul
Realm were no match for the powerful
destroyers but, just when everyone had given up hope
, an incredible fire
came out of the sky
and swept over the realm, wiping out the Destroyers' army
. Several hundred years have passed and the Destroyers are back for a rematch
, but the secret
of that powerful
fire was lost through the ages
The only clue
to the survival of the Ghoul Realm lies in the hint
that the sole heir
to the "Red
Gargoyle" can bring back the magic
flame. As Firebrand, guardian
Gargoyle of the Realm, you must discover
this heir to the magic
flame and bring peace
to the kingdom
AN UNKNOWN ARMY...
ATTACKED... THE KING HAS BEEN...
THEY ARE... VERY STRONG...
RETURN... TO THE REALM
HURRY, BEFORE THEY CLOSE THE
DIMENSION PORTAL THAT LEADS HERE.
You play the gargoyle
, Firebrand. He can cling to walls, jump
and spit fire. Like many other Capcom games
, the control is ingenious
, but requires a lot of practice (see Bionic Commando)
There are two vantage point
s within the game. The first one is an "above-view" or "bird's eye view
" of Firebrand. It's used for interior scenes (for town
s and talk
ing) and exterior scenes (traversing the overland map
). The second vantage point is a close-up side view
of Firebrand (platform
style). It's the view-point of all battle
There are no time limit
s or points.
CHARACTERS (including bosses):
- splits into 4 dreadwings
- easy, jumping fish skeleton
- small, bee-like bug
- generic enemy, sometimes carry shield
- big, spike
- attacks by shoot
ing his head at you
- flying fucker
- tries to bite Firebrand
- pops up from water
and spits shit
these and then trade
them in for a Talisman
of the Cyclone.
Essence of the Soulstream
- Essentially a 1-Up
. Firebrand can only hold 9 at a time.
Talisman of the Cyclone
- Same as Essence of the Soulstream.
EXCHANGE 8 VIALS FOR 1 TALISMAN
OF THE CYCLONE.
MORE THAN THAT WOULD BE GREEDY.
WPXF-4BDQ - Starts Firebrand at the last save
point in the game with max items, etc.
FFFF-FFFF - Starts Firebrand in the first town with all items, etc.
WE GHOULS CAN BE REVIVED BY
CHANTING THE RESURRECTION
I'LL TELL YOU THE
WORDS OF THE SPELL. NEVER

Gargoyle's Quest III - Demon's Crest (SNES
I haven't play
ed either of the sequels to Gargoyle's Quest
, but I've heard that the NES one was just a crumby remake
of the Game Boy version with a different storyline
