Ghosts 'n Goblins
Online version of Ghosts 'n Goblins for Arcade. Ghosts 'n Goblins (Makai-mura) is a run and gun platform game created by Tokuro Fujiwara and developed by Capcom, released in arcades on September 19, 1985. The series has subsequently been ported to and released on a variety of game consoles and mobile platforms and spawned several sequels and spin-offs. The player controls a knight, named Sir Arthur, who must defeat zombies, ogres, demons, cyclopes, dragons and other monsters in order to rescue Princess Prin-Prin, who has been kidnapped by Astaroth, king of Demon World. Along the way the player can pick up new weapons, bonuses and extra suits of armor that can help in this task. The player can only be hit twice before losing a life. Losing a life will result in having to restart the level, or starting at the halfway point if the player has managed to get that far...

Online emulated version of Ghosts 'n Goblins was originally developed as arcade game or coin-op game,
a coin-operated entertainment machine typically installed in public businesses such as restaurants, bars and amusement arcades. Most arcade games are video games,
pinball machines, electro-mechanical games, redemption games or merchandisers. While exact dates are debated, the golden age of arcade video games is usually defined
as a period beginning sometime in the late 1970s and ending sometime in the mid-1980s.
Virtually all modern arcade games (other than the very traditional Midway-type games at county fairs) make extensive use of solid state electronics, integrated circuits and cathode-ray tube screens. In the past, coin-operated arcade video games generally used custom per-game hardware often with multiple CPUs, highly specialized sound and graphics chips, and the latest in expensive computer graphics display technology. This allowed arcade system boards to produce more complex graphics and sound than what was then possible on video game consoles or personal computers, which is no longer the case in the 2010s.
This emulation is powered by MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) project, an open-source emulator designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. Its intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten.
