I dunno how many people ever played “Ghoul School” on the NES but I think about it every now and then ever since I interviewed its creator like ten years ago.
He had so many cool ideas that they just couldn’t pull off in time or with the technology available. The bosses would have been giant, disembodied organs who eventually fused into the final boss. You would have been able to go undercover as a monster and see the ghouls actually having classes. The halls would have flooded with monsters on a timer and there would have been a lot of fun puzzle solving rather than just beating stuff up with weapons.
More interestingly, it could have been the very first video game with a black protagonist, but the company higher-ups shot it down, claiming that black people don’t play video games and white people don’t want to play black characters.
Somebody re-make Ghoul School please
