CRL software never really did it for me. Their
titles seemed to lack that final polished look and feel
that would make them worthy top titles. If anyone asked
me to name as many CRL titles as I could, the only ones
that come to mind are
OINK! and The Rocky Horror Show... and they're not

It's attempt to be a Ghost
n Goblins clone just makes it fall flat on its face
with its outdated graphics and annoying in-game tune.
Saying that - it does give you a sense of anticipation

see the later levels. It was definitely not worth the

Collect the final
The screen starts to
Our hero jumps for

SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have defeated the 11th and final boss, you
collect the final item and the ending kicks in... our
hero is seen jumping up and down on Nick's gravestone,
and the word "CONGRATULATIONS" is displayed. The
ending is accompanied by the same, annoying in-game
