The Game Boy Advance version, titled Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts in North America and Europe and Chō Makaimura R in Japan, features an “Arrange Mode” that enables the player to choose from redesigned levels and bosses based on Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, depending on success in keeping the bronze armor, or a higher difficulty tier of the standard levels set upon keeping the golden armor. Unlike the Normal Mode, in Arrange Mode, the Goddess’s Bracelet is already accessible during the first playthrough.
You are Arthur, the boldest bladesman alive. You are caught in a dangerous quest! Fiendish foes and grim demons are about to hurl disaster your way!
You must save the wondrous Princess Guinevere. But beware! The reeking ruler of the forbidden land can call forth evil and destruction. Who knows what creeping, leaping terrors haunt this dripping realm!
You may lose your armor and your strength. You may be hexed. You may become a baby, a duck, or a skeleton! But you are never without a weapon. And magic awaits to help you.
Destroy the witches, ogres and ghosts. Escape the snapping skulls and ghastly ghouls. And save Guinevere from the mysterious depths of the Phantom Zone in Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts!
