This is a very, VERY good tribute. 

For real! I mean, all of the Castlevania tropes and atmosphere are right there, even with some game mechanic references from different Castlevania games. It's fun to play, and functional as well. Loved your demo, and I hope to see this tribute go even further!

(Also, needs more flying skeleton heads, like, a whole room full of them)

Thanks for the feedback. This tribute will definitely go further- all the way into Dracula’s throne room! There may be more flying skulls along the way.

This. I like. A huge throwback to Castlevania if there's ever one.

Great video. I noticed a bug we need to fix. When you fell to your death, you respawned all the way back at the beginning instead of the entrance to that room. Sorry about that, we will fix it.

We are also trying to balance the volume between songs better.

Finally, the next version of the demo will definitely have exploration and rpg elements! It won’t be a full blown Metroid Vania, but it will take some inspiration from that genre while keeping it mostly classic style.

Played on my show, Indie Game Roundup ( starts at 22:01 if embed isn't working). Very promising so far!

Wow, cool roundup. I'm going to watch you play some of the other games in that video. Nice work!

This game was genuinely fun. I loved the old fashioned style from the 80's. It reminds me of the times when people sat in front of their box TVs with rabbit ears and their  Nintendo Entertainment system.  The old graphics and the runner's music are perfectly implemented. The monsters for the demo are well colored for a sequential game. Although it is not terribly hard, this game will troll you in your over confidence. This was a lot of fun. Seeing this from the scene nowadays is very uncommon, and very admirable. Not many people may be into this style, but I am one of those who are. I love this game, download for some stabby good fun. I look forward to the full release of this awesome emulation of video game period when things were slower and predictable. I hope development goes well!

Awesome video! Thanks for the feedback and commentary, it helps us determine how to improve the game. Glad you had a good time with it.
