A Hardcore Platformer as Dracula Slayer
Castlevania is first entry of popular old-school platformer that still recognized today among gamers. This game what is definition of challenging and hardcore platformer in 8bit era. Playing as Vampire Hunter, you have to face against supernatural enemies by using whip as main weapon and obtainable skills alongside the side scrolling gameplay by whipping the enemies and also breakable items to get power to use skills. If its something that is really notable for me in game play is how ridiculously this game when it comes enemy intelligence because every step they know what they are doing to screw you. Even though you have life bar, every time you get hit you automatically jump and this is problematic when you are playing in platformer because in some levels without floor you are easily die because one hit. Every stages in Castlevania have its own boss to defeat, and there are more five levels to beat. Basically this is game can be finished in two hour, but considering how difficulty the enemies and platformer are, remember to take a break when you are stuck by keep dying. In order to finish the game, if you play this game today. Its kind of that rage-quit inducing game and you need more patience in order to learn unpredictable enemies movement. So play with emulator with regular saves during the gameplay because what I can say... this is the first entry of popular game that appeals to hardcore retro gamers. Rating : 7/10 Finished : 14/11/18
