Instant classic, 8bit castlevania at it's purest.
Gameplay and Sound surpassed only by the amazing artstyle and the singularity of each character, amazing job IGA!

I think there's another map, the top of the castle and that's it!
EDIT: Oh, and make sure you start a new game after beating the main mode ; >

Sucks that it was lost (or stolen?). If you put Secret of Mana, Diablo, and Xenoblade Chronicles in a blender, the resulting delicious concoction would be Soma Bringer. Sure the initial area is kind of ho-hum, but it just keeps picking up steam from there getting better and better. Also playing SB via local co-op is a blast.

I didn't know Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon had been released already. :shock: Oh dear W:TotFL may have to take a night off.

Yep, I plan on giving it a go tonight. Don't have my Switch code yet, but they're giving temporary Steam codes to those affected, so I'll get to play regardless.

They gave me a refund, no questions asked, so it all turned out okay. I just never ended up attempting to buy it again Xp
I also have no friends to play with, but that hasn't stopped me from enjoying that kind of game before, so I think I'll be fine. I'll have to put it back on my watch-for list :3

Yeah I got the Steam version too. That should tell you how much I want to play this. :|

It's worth playing solo for the OST alone, but still a fun game regardless. A trailer. English patch.

I had no idea that Curse of the Moon was coming out so soon. I have the Switch one coming and I don’t really play on PC so I’ll just wait on that.

I finally beat Doom on Switch. I liked the game a lot but I didn’t care much for the boss fights. After the rest of the game being about frantically moving around to avoid enemies while you rain destruction on them and rip them apart with glory kills, the boss fights just feel too methodical and boring. The final boss especially I just shot all my heavy weaponry from a distance and barely had to dodge anything. I guess you might say it’s a change of pace but I think it would have been better if they stuck to what the game did best during boss fights. Sure, have one big boss, but throw waves of enemies at me too and make it chaotic like the rest of the game.

Don't want to spoil much from the game, but Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is beaten. I need to dive back in to grab things I might have missed; there are permanent powerups throughout the game. My first run took me 1h45m, which isn't insanely long, but I fully expect it to get harder when I go for the higher difficulties. I played on Normal and Veteran modes the first go.

Anyway, if you love old-school Castlevania, this will (mostly) scratch that itch. It's just close enough to give you a lot of what the classic series did, but also feels just different enough to do a few things of its own. I'm not entirely sure if I feel it stacks up to the classics yet. Normal mode was pretty easy, even if I still died a decent number of times. Having an entire crew to blow through before losing a life, plus lots of opportunities to boost score for more lives, meant that I had 16 total lives at the end.

And yes, you will go flying down pits in veteran mode. Yes, you will miss some jumps and plummet to your doom. It's totally got that part down. :lol:
