Ugh, stop twitching
take a key for coming in
games Posted 2004-03-24 01:43:21 by Jim Crawford
I might write a review of Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts at some point (short version: extremely hard and absolutely perfect on its own terms), but right now, I'd just like to proclaim to the world that I have deciphered this delightful bit of Engrish that comes up after you beat a level boss:

Take a key for coming in!

Give up? The next image is sorta a hint, and it also has the added benefit of providing spoiler space:

Clear bonus: 5000pts!  Sorry, you only get the hint if you actually load the image.  Don't worry, it's not really that helpful anyways.

It's all a matter of parenthesization. You aren't getting the key because you came in. No. Coming in ... is what the key ... is for!

I'm guessing he misplaced it along with his competence.

My first comment spam and he totally botched it. MonsterD should take more pride in his work.
