Students recreate classic Ghosts 'n Goblins in Unreal Engine 4

Ghosts n Goblins student project unreal engine 4

An arcade classic has been brought into the 21st century by some students using modern technology.

Do you remember playing Ghosts 'n Goblins when you were younger? I remember playing the later game, Ghouls 'n Ghosts on the Sega Mega Drive and it was extremely difficult, but don't believe I've played the original. Anyway, a team of students have created their interpretation of the game in Unreal Engine 4, for a student project, and it's rather impressive.

The team of eight were tasked with recreating "the classic Ghosts'N Goblins games with a next-gen look in Unreal Engine 4". Take a look at the results below.

When asked on the Unreal Engine forums whether the were going to take the project further, Art Director Thierry De Haerne-Voinson said that they wouldn't be. It's unfortunate, as it looks great, and with a little more time to polish it up, it could be a fun take on the classic platformer.

Thanks, AGB.
