The acclaimed console arcade game created by Locomalito finally arrives to iOS in the most portable and better looking version ever!

► 9 / 10 - Nintendo Life - Cursed Castilla is a punishing but ultimately rewarding love letter to the classic action platformers of the coin-op industry's golden years.

► 9 / 10 - VidaExtra - A necessary experience that you will enjoy as you used to enjoy in the 80s or 90s.

► 8,5 / 10 - Hobby Consolas - It's a video game made with passion, [...] and, also, one of the best current retro video games that we've played.

► 8 / 10 - Brash Games - The game is old school through and through, and makes no apologies for providing an experience on par with the classic Capcom platformers of yesteryear.

► 8 / 10 - GameSpew - Anyone looking for a challenging action-packed 2D adventure won’t go far wrong with Cursed Castilla.

The tears of a young witch have been turned into a key by a demon to open a gateway to hell.

In Cursed Castilla, one takes the role of Don Ramiro, a knight appointed by King Alphonse VI, to fight and banish the evil invading the lands of Tolomera.

Don Ramiro will face mouras, Ojáncanos, Nuberus and Malismos: creatures from the European folklore, as well as from chivalric romances such as Amadís de Gaula. For that, one will use a different range of weapons to defeat the enemies, in a pure classic arcade action style.

Fantastic port of my favorite indie game!

I was overjoyed when I found this in the App Store. I built a small arcade cabinet just for the original Maldita Castilla. This has made my day!

Five Stars With Better Controls

Loving this. Fun, retro, well-designed, except for this set of controls, which have me considering deleting from my phone. The enjoyment I see in it has not translated well to my experience, which is stuttering fingers and loss of hearts faster than I can get them. Five stars when/if fixed.

Developer Response ,

Working on it. We will continue updating and improving the experience. Thank you for the feedback.
