Game review

In Ghoul Patrol, players once again step into the roles of Zeke and Julie, the protagonists from "Zombies Ate My Neighbors." The story begins with the duo visiting their local library, where they inadvertently unleash a horde of supernatural creatures from an old book. The game takes players on a journey through various eerie and haunted locations, including the Middle Ages, the Caribbean, and the inner workings of a demonic library.

The gameplay of Ghoul Patrol is similar to its predecessor, with a top-down perspective and run-and-gun action. Players must navigate through levels, rescue innocent victims, and battle a variety of supernatural enemies, including ghosts, demons, and other monstrous creatures. The game features an arsenal of weapons and power-ups, including plasma guns, bazookas, and potions, which add diversity and strategy to combat.

One of the new features in Ghoul Patrol is the addition of a dash mechanic, allowing players to quickly evade enemies or cross dangerous areas. This mechanic adds an extra layer of agility and strategy to the gameplay, especially during intense combat situations or while navigating through traps.

Upon its release, Ghoul Patrol received mixed reviews. While some praised its fun gameplay and faithful continuation of the "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" formula, others felt it lacked the originality and charm of its predecessor. Nonetheless, Ghoul Patrol was appreciated for its challenging action and engaging level design.

Today, Ghoul Patrol is remembered as a solid and entertaining SNES title. It stands as a testament to the popularity of horror-themed games during the era and is celebrated by fans for its action-packed gameplay and quirky, supernatural adventure.
