The Ghosts'n Goblins Online Closed Beta Test just went live last night and I knew I had to jump into the game right away. I've always been a big fan of the classic old school version of the game. The new version feels really different, definitely easier but at the same time it was a lot of fun. There is still a few days left of testing to go, but I am very eager to share my experiences with you guys while memories are still fresh! Be one of the first to check out some of my HD 1080p gameplay videos along with first impressions of the game!
Ghosts'n Goblins Online Full Party Rush Gooo!!!
As of the moment Ghosts's Goblins Online has three different playable classes which is Knight, Conjurer, and Archer. Character creation seemed a bit limited, personally I didn't find the preset selections all that appealing but it's side-scrolling game so it didn't really bother me as much. I decided to roll with the Knight class to keep things a little bit more classic. Though I kind of regret not giving him the yellow hair with massive beard look.
Just like the original version the hero must save the princess from the evil demon that kidnapped her! The video below shows a cool cutscene of how the princess was abducted and me going through the tutorial. The controls are really simple, very easy to adapt too. The graphics seem to have improved a lot compared to the previous closed beta tests awhile back. I sat through the whole beta session, was kind of Glued down to my seat! Unfortunately, my testing session had to come to an end due to the Fatigue/Stamina system which doesn't bother me much. I've tested a lot of genre's of this type and South Korean games likes to impose this feature a lot due to their strict government and such.
Introduction & Tutorial
As you can see in the video below, your character will be able to run around naked like the original version. Now check out the HP orb, to the right of that you will find an AP gauge. The AP gauge stands for Armor Points, this gauge gradually goes down the more you get hit by monsters. Once it reaches 0, your character will lose all of the armor they are wearing! The only way to restore the AP is by looting chests or Armor pieces found in that dungeon.
I am not sure how much replay value Ghosts's Goblins Online will have in the future but the game already offers other things to keep players busy like PvP and such. It also offers advance jobs, each class can branch off into two different kinds depending on which class is their style. This preview is mainly shows off low level gameplay, so you guys will have to wait and see some high level gameplay in the future. Depending on how much free time I have, I will write up a full review of this game in the future but as for now, I hope you enjoyed the mini preview!
