Gargoyle’s Quest games on VC in two weeks ⊟
Rad Arremer news now, as Nintendo reveals release dates for Demon’s Crest on Wii U and Gargoyle’s Quest 2 on both 3DS and Wii U. These hard-to-find spinoffs of the Ghosts ‘n Goblins games are both dang cool, with Gargoyle’s Quest 2 blending classic RPG style and 2D Hella Capcom action, and Demon’s Crest leaning more to the action side with a bit of RPG stuff.
At the big VGJunk site today: Magic Pockets’ Game Boy Advance trick-or-treat-em-up Castleween, also known as Spirits & Spells and Mahou no Pumpkin! It’s a game with child soul harvesting, an unfortunate vampire and easily fooled demons, and you can read all about it here!
Man, I bought this game as an import back when it came out (not knowing it would hit the U.S. a few months later). This was when I was struggling to find work and had very little money to blow on frivolity. I was hoping to stumble across the next secret 2D platforming gem, but… nope. What a horrible waste of my precious dollars. Damn you, adorable box art and title.
