Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts Cheats For SNES

Extra Lives

Most people don't know, but you can start the game with up to 9 lives per continue. Head over to the "Option Mode" on the Title Screen and go down to where it says "PLAYER". Change the amount to 9 or any amount of lives you want to play the game with. For the veteran players out there, you can decrease this to give yourself more of a challenge.

Change Game Difficulty

There is no dispute that Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts is a difficult game, but if you are struggling to make it by each level, you could always lower the game's difficulty settings. Head over to the "Option Mode" on the Title Screen and go down to where it says "GAME LEVEL". From here, change the difficulty to anywhere ranging from Beginner to Professional.

Level Select

To activate level select, head over to the "Option Mode" on the Title Screen and highlight "Exit". Next, hold L and Start on controller 2 and press Start on controller 1. This will let you pick the starting level a section of the level, plus it will give you access to the game's sound test.

Bracelet Of Power

In order to beat the game completely, you will need to obtain the Bracelet Of Power. This bracelet is only obtainable on your second play-through of the game and can be obtained from a jar or trunk. It can drop in any level on the second play-through. The bracelet is hard to miss since you will see a fairy come out of a trunk or jar and then the fairy turns into the bracelet, so be on the lookout for the fairy.
