Ghosts and Goblins was one of the first really huge arcade adventures to appear in the arcades. It was so big, and so tough that you had to pump pockets full of change into it to get anywhere. For this reason most people believed the Capcom title would convert well to home use.

Which indeed it did. You play a Knight in shining armour sent on a mission to rescue a princess. Scrolling horizontally you have to waste the various ghosts, ghouls, and living dead who emerge from their graves to thwart your quest. Well decorated with Magazine accolades when it was launched in Winter '86 and, in 1989, a solid budget purchase.
