A masterpiece made out of love for Castlevania

Reviewed By: DeviousB on 11 Apr 2021

I’m having such a great time playing this hack, you can just tell it’s a labor of love by a fan who has a deep understanding Castlevania. The story is fresh and well written and it’s comfy-nostalgic when characters from other CV’s show up. There’s also new characters, map areas, items and weapons too which sometimes makes me feel like i’m playing an entirely new game. It still has plenty of vanilla aspects so it just feels really balanced. I’m loving the the soundtrack as well, it’s kinda like a Castlevania juke box and catch myself humming the tunes all day. I’m getting near the end game and have not experienced any bugs or problems whatsoever and the saves carry over for every update. Besides a typo where it says “there” when it should have been “their”,the game is pretty much flawless. If you like Castlevania at all you owe it to yourself to play this hack.
