Another Masterpiece

Reviewed By: Sephirous on 06 Dec 2017

Optomon has done it again with Castlevania – The Holy Relics. The Holy Relics takes advantage of the unused items from the original Castlevania, and gives it the feel of the Castlevania II, with, believe it or not, the environment of the MSX Vampire Killer. The game comes with all new enemies as well as new bosses with custom programing. Most the music is remakes of the previous songs. There are a couple of new tunes that were created by Optomon himself and they are always pretty awesome. The difficulty of the game starts off fairly easy, as I was able to get through The Woods with ease. Once you hit, The River, literally all hell breaks loose. What I like is that in the later stages, the game makes the player think instead of just going from left to right. It does play with your instinct tricking you into taking the wrong path, with what appears to be humorous, as the key you are searching for appears on the opposite path you have taken. The ending is quite something, as the completely custom feel leaves you with the mystery, whether collecting all the hidden treasure chests might affect a better ending or not. This certainly gives the game replay value. Overall, the game is pretty good and definitely has the Optomon feel to it. I would recommend this game to anyone who has played Castlevania and is looking for a more MSX Vampire Killer / Simon’s Quest feel.
