I ask you to assess whether it is worth paying 10 euros for 2 hours of play, or you prefer to invest them in others whose duration is longer. In any case, if you are lovers of retro, go for it because it will make you spend an entertaining mini afternoon.

I had a feeling that Curse of the Moon would be a title that I was going to enjoy, but I wasn’t aware of how much I would immediately love this game.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is a good game to get started in games like Castlevania at an interesting price.

There's a big difference between being inspired by something and flat out copying it. Curse of the Moon copies Dracula's Curse and does a good job of it. So much so, that if you're a fan of Dracula's Curse, you might not even need to play Curse of the Moon. Compare that to Shovel Knight, which combined the best parts of series like Mega Man, Mario, and Ducktails, to be an excellent game in its own right which I recommend to everyone. Personally, I prefer the Shovel Knight approach to retro-inspired games, although Curse of the Moon is a great way to revisit a classic without requiring so much skill and patience to see it through to completion.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon may be a prequel to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, but functions as a worthy homage to the NES Castlevania games.
