The uh... soundtrack, has been changed for something less sensitive. Konami didn't like me using their songs.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

As a huge Castlevania fan I must say this is choice.
The controls are smooth, and the level design is great.
I beat the first level and boss on my first try, but had to exit, and had forgotten the password so I had to spend an hour trying to beat it again because my fingers magically transformed into dicks or something. I also see the passwords are right there in the description. Well.

I spent another hour trying to get to that secret fucking boss. I kept dying while jumping over the platforms above the water, I don't know if it was poorly designed or I just suck. But additionally it took another fucking hour of going back there until I could finally beat the fucker. And I could only get that extra life (the one where the garbage can chick kicks you up to it) like once every ten tries. So I just died more often than not. Little things like that took away from the experience a lot.

BUT. Overall this game is too good to let little things like that put me off. So five stars to you. I loved the default difficulty, I thought it was perfect. Though I thought casual was far too much of a drop in difficulty. But that's just my opinion. Anyway thanks for making this game and allowing me to fulfill my lifelong desire of beating up disabled girls with a scarf.

I'm glad you liked it! I was very worried about making the default difficulty too hard and throwing most players off after their first game over. I think the game would've been a lot better if I took more time to add an easier first stage, get players hooked in and throw them a learning curve... next time.

The platform and the extra life candle was a design flaw on my part; the water made the visible platform very hard to see, and standing near the edge of a downward slope is very awkward. I'm glad you brought it up, stuff like this will be rectified in future releases.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


...Anyway, awesome game is awesome, although the final boss has a rather underwhelming amount of health and only one form. Kind of a difficulty nosedive for people trying to no-death-run Kenji Must Die.

Now time to figure out this "secret boss" and the secret cheat >_>

ShadowWhoWalks responds:

I didn't balance Iwanako properly. You can either cheese her with mail crash with no effort, or fight her the hard way with a different sub-weapon.

The latter is recommended, especially if you enjoy fighting Dio Brando.

Iwanako disabled the main character with a single letter then forced him to go through Act 1 for 5 years, I thought it was only fitting.
