A quick and often violent Roguelike game set in the classic world of Castlevania.
The word Roguelike recently made its appearance on Acid-Play and it has been pushed around a bit since then. If you haven’t got what it is, yet, it’s basically an exploration type RPG where all the tiles, characters, etc. are represented with numbers, letters and symbols.
CastlevaniaRL takes the Roguelike simulation and transports the characters and universe of the platforming game Castlevania. At times each genre shows through and at others its simply an enjoyable mish-mash – a Brundlefly type hybrid where the strongest types of each meet in the middle.
Included with the game is a fantastic tileset (see the screenshot) which will assist in easing unfamiliar players of the genre into a comfortable zone. While the games length is not extraordinarily long, what you get is an enjoyable and unique game which will serve as a brief period of enjoyment for you when you load it up.
