Reviewed By: VK2212 on 03 Apr 2021

I’m always pleased to see a new Castlevania mod, and this one definitely has potential. The character sprites, including Juste and Maxim, are definitely well done! The story is definitely well done, as well as the castle itself. My one gripe, would have to be the music. There are a few returning tracks from previous Castlevania titles, but a majority are from Final Fantasy or Mega Man. While those tracks are good, they don’t really fit the Castlevania tone. I would recommend adding more Castlevania tunes, possibly remastered tracks from Harmony of Dissonance, like they did with Successor of Fate. But if there is one track I would love see return, it’s the Dawn of Sorrow version of Vampire Killer. I mean having the 8 bit one in there just doesn’t fit. So if the creator reads this, please add that song back. It would definitely be epic to hear that version while using Juste. But in all this hack is off to a great start!
