Ghosts ‘n Goblins is one of the most popular and hardest games of all time and recently received remakes of the first two games in the series in Ghosts’ n Goblins Resurrection. The game was recently ported from Nintendo Switch to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and longtime fans are seeing the game differently from other games in the series.
About Legend Difficulty – Ghosts ‘n Goblins
Legendary Mode is difficult as it only gives the player two hits to death – one hit will remove Arthur’s Armor, and the next will kill him. In addition, enemies are faster and the game provides additional content for brave Legends players to explore.
Legendary Mode is the way to go to play Ghosts ‘n Goblin if it’s important for the player to experience the series as it was originally meant to be experienced. The addition of other difficulty levels is intended to give new players an introduction to the game’s precise mechanics and movements, but the series is known for its punitive gameplay and it’s a shame if you shouldn’t try one. time.
Collect Umbral Bee
Umbral Bees in Ghosts ‘n Goblins are Arthur’s source of upgradability. By collecting Umbral Bees, he can get new abilities from the Umbral Tree, some of which are absolutely necessary to a successful Legend mode run of the game.
Umbral bees look different in every zone, and if players miss one, they’re extremely hard to go back for. Take out as many enemies as possible around the bee first so there’s time to try again without fear of being hit mid-jump – in Legend mode every movement counts, after all.
The Medusa Spell
While none of the abilities in Ghosts ‘n Goblins are truly terrible, a skill that stands above the rest is a must for any player looking to make their way through Legendary mode a little easier. The Medusa skill will turn small enemies to stone if they appear on the screen and it only needs 3 Umbral Bees to unlock.
The upgraded version of the skill, Medusa II, will also work against mid-sized enemies. This skill won’t kill bosses, so while it’s a great spell throughout the game for dealing with small enemies, it’s not very useful against larger enemies.
Dual-Equippable Weapons – Ghosts ‘n Goblins
While players going through Legendary mode can always rely on Knife to deal with most of the game’s enemies, it’s still very useful to have a backup. The Kitted Out spell can be learned at the Umbral Tree with the Umbral Bees and has two upgrades: one that allows Arthur to carry two weapons and one that allows him to carry three.
Other weapons in the game are the Spear, Holy Water, Hammer, Spiked Orb, Crossbow, Disc, and Shield. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, and while the Knife is a great one, other situational weapons can be more useful (like the Crossbow against a ranged boss).
Embrace Guaranteed Failures
The most important thing for players in Legends is to accept that they probably won’t be able to win on the first try, or the second, or even the first dozen or so attempts they make. The only way to get through an experience as grueling and unforgiving as Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection’s Legendary mode is to have the will to keep going and understand that failure is inevitable.
Mastering the game’s precise movements, specific upgrades, and keeping in mind enemy types and weapon aiming can certainly help players reach the end more efficiently. However, that outcome will never materialize, if players are not patient enough to learn from their mistakes and try again.
