Critic Reviews for Castle In The Darkness
A throw back to the Golden Age of gaming, Castle in the Darkness is a fun, yet death filled adventure that should not be missed. If you loved another similar type of game, Shovel Knight, then you're going to be right at home with Castle in the Darkness! Hard as balls, indeed!
Still, when taken overall, Castle in the Darkness is a wild and undeniable success that serves not only as a love letter to numerous old NES classics, but establishes itself as a worthwhile experience in its own right. The game is just brutally fun, and "one more time" can become "oh wow, is it really 2AM?" in the blink of an eye. This is a very rare sort of title that actually deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the classics it is imitating, and, in some cases, surpasses them.
