Resident Evil 1 & 2 Features 8-bit Retro Mini Games


If you believe that Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 are simply direct port, think again. Actually it is a direct port with a few noteworthy exceptions, one being that in addition to having all the DLC included with both games. Capcom’s Switch version will also include two retro mini games not found in any other versions.

These retro mini games are reminiscent of the Capcom classic 8-bit Ghouls ‘n Ghosts Nintendo Entertainment System but it this case, it’s being called “Ghouls ‘n Homunculi.” This fun diversion is in Resident Evil Revelations 2. The other diversion, “Ghost Ship Panic,” is described as old school light guns.

Not only is it a fantastic throwback, playing the game will help you get rewards in the main game Raid Mode.

“The first, Ghost Ship Panic, comes with Resident Evil: Revelations, and is a score attack shoot-em-up. This mode is a loading screen minigame that tasks the player with shooting a variety of Ooze, Rachel Ooze, and Scagdead enemies using an on-screen cursor. As players kill hordes of enemies they can chain combos of kills to earn BP for use in the Raid mode. It’s quite reminiscent of those old school light-gun games.”

“The second is a throwback to the classic Ghouls ‘n Ghosts in form of the minigame Ghouls ‘n Homunculi. This time around the player controls Barry Burton (not Arthur) as he makes his way through the pixel-based platform game. Just like in the original Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Barry Burton loses an item of clothing with each hit taken.”
