Gargoyle saves the Ghoul Realm from evil...wait...what?
Now this is what I call an awesome NES title and one of the most unique platforming experiences I've had on the system. You play as Firebrand the "Red Areemer" who if you don't know/remember is that annoying as hell red devil creature that swoops down on you in the Ghosts 'n Goblins series! He predictably starts out rather puny but in true RPG fashion (kinda) he traverses the land and defeats bosses to obtain more health, abilities and crucially, more wing strength. You see Firebrand has a pretty unique hover ability that is super fun but it starts out being a very limited ability that only lasts a few seconds. That is until near the end of the game when it becomes unlimited, this is simultaneously the most fun part of the game as well as its biggest source of frustration as some jumps it's only just possible to make but stick with it long enough and you'll see just how intuitive this mechanic actually is because Firebrand can also cling to walls to refill his wing strength, and the brilliantly executed level designs play right into the clinging and hovering mechanics making for some really great fun. People looking for another "true" RPG on the system may be disappointed though as the game's overworld map only really serves as a way to obtain vials (currency) which can be traded with merchants for maelstrom (extra lives) and as a way to break up the levels and make the game feel larger than it actually is. I'd say that Gargoyle's Quest 2 has more in common with Wonderboy than Dragon Quest, in that it's a platform game with some light RPG elements and not a true quest in that sense. But if this still sounds at all interesting to you then I would encourage you to definitely give it a fair shot, it's fun, has some great harpsichord-esque chiptunes that would feel right at home in a Ghosts 'n Goblins game, and some of the best graphics and sprite animation on the system due to its 1992 release. Recommended.

Pleasantly Surprised
Thought this game was just going to be ok at best but I was wrong. First off the graphics are phenomenal for the original nintendo. Some of the towns and the world map have some bland textures. This all changes when you get into the action scenes and it changes into a side scroller. The story seemed kind of lame but its an original nintendo game, what do you expect? The gameplay is like a rpg game mixed with an action game. You have three categories for which you can upgrade. Wings, Jump, and Armor. Also you can get different abilities that help you reach different parts of the levels. All in all i would recommend this for anyones Nintendo collection as to me, it is a true gem in the library.
