In this original creation from Capcom, players control the fate of the gallant hero Maximo who returns home to find his once trusted advisor, Achille has usurped his kingdom, imprisoned four beautiful sorceresses and even married Maximoâ€™s intended bride.
Achilleâ€™s actions have led to the undead rising up from their graves and roaming the countryside angering The Grim Reaper. It soon transpires that Maximo and The Grim Reaper both have a score to settle with Achille so the two form a remarkable alliance to defeat their common enemy.
Maximo: Ghosts to Gloryâ€™s dynamically changing and beautifully constructed 3D environments are full of creativity and interactivity. The heroâ€™s abilities and skills develop as the game advances. Over 40 power ups and special abilities can be found throughout the game.
Maximo can use his shield to defend himself or throw it like a weapon. His shield can also be powered up in many ways including attracting lightning and creating tornados. His sword can also be powered up, from a simple increase in size, to calling a meteor storm from the sky, to transforming it into a flaming blade to slice through enemies.
A unique character progression system enables players to customise and upgrade their character with new skills, abilities, and weapons based on player preferences. As Maximo ventures out on his quest, his appearance changes as the game progresses. At different times, Maximo may be outfitted to wear a helmet or earn new armour, be magically transformed into â€œold man Maximo,â€
