| Old school and super fun gothic horror game!
I saw a trailer for this game and saw that it looked like another great game from back in the day, Symphony of the Night and I knew I had to get this one. It is made by the same creator as he apparently split Konomi and with the help of a go fund me was able to create this game. It shares quite a few similarities; however, it is different in many ways as well. The castle in this one is supposedly the biggest castle that the creator has designed as he has made several Castlevania games of this nature; though, having played only Symphony I can say that it seems a bit bigger, just not sure by how much.

The story has a young woman named Miriam trying to track down a man named Gebal. As children, both were part of cruel experiments meant to bring about some sort of demon apocalypse. Gebal survived the ritual; however, Miriam went into a deep slumber right before. She awakened years later and now a new castle of evil has appeared and so she sets forth to find out its dark and deadly secrets.

The game play is very much like Symphony of the Night in that it is side scrolling action game with some RPG elements to it as you must level your character and buy armor and weapons. There are a vast array of weapons to choose from as you have swords, daggers, whips and even guns! You also can take on abilities of your enemies. The game also offers you the chance to help out townsfolk and create weapons using alchemy. You can also cook meals that when you try them the first time you get a permanent stat boost!

So, this game is really fun. Symphony had a better story and had way better music, but this one is longer and you get to do a lot more. Both games are very good and I would not mind seeing more games of this type created as I like a nice side scrolling game every now and then. I would also love to see an old school RPG with the looks of Final Fantasy VI made with a super huge world, but that's just me. This game is definitely like revisiting the past with upgrades!
