This game is Maid Samba most commonly referred to as Zangyura. It’s in the vein of “traditional doujin SHMUP author takes a stab at making a platformer.” A passive effort will reveal it to be a poor Castlevania knock off. Further investigation reveals its true nature; a joke.
Etude’s jokes are mainly you laughing with the creator. Nocturne is more of him laughing at you. Knightmare… is an earthquake of infinite lives and infinite deaths. The screen-shaking and the constant dying is enough to overwhelm you, even with the insane amount of checkpoints everywhere.
All in all, it’s a game for those appreciative of quirky yet forgiving level design and a yellow-haired lemming.
Maid Samba is a platformer produced by PlatineDispotif, the creators of Dicing Knight. It’s a clone of the classic (pre-SOTN) Castlevania games, and is ridiculously difficult.
Maid Samba is not freeware, although there is an untranslated demo available here.
