Ratings and Reviews
I hate writing reviews but I’m so impressed with this release that I feel it’s my duty as an avid gamer to do so.....sooooo here it goes-if the castlevania/Metroid genre ( admittedly more the first than the latter) had a baby with a fine tuned rpg,then ud have this game. Everything-literally,graphics,gameplay,story,overall execution,etc are done near flawlessly, 5 star all the way, if u,like myself have wished for a castlevania release on IOS,well then like myself ur gonna have to keep on waiting......BUT if ur down with the next best and in some respects better thing then
GET THIS GAME....u will not regret it
had the game for a few days now and all I can say over and over and over is WOW just simply WOW....I from the bottoms of my heart wish u guys win some kind of game of the year award....it would take me multiples of multiples of paragraphs to do this game justice......This game is 100% worth double the asking price.....and this last bit is real talk-just to the devs: PLEASE keep making games,please,Grimvalor is an example of everything IOS gaming can and should b,u kno what I’m talking about and from one fan of tru gaming to a a group of who I can only assume is made up of the same-congrats-this game will go down as one of the best on this platform
Amazing castlevinia game
So before anything this game is soul like but not, the dodging are more forgiving, the combat is much faster paced without the stamina limit, and death will not drop your shards. However it does have a similar flask, level and check point system as soul like genre.
The combat is on point, it’s simple, but with enough options. I’m only at act two but I’m already very into it. The control is very smooth(which is very surprising for a button based phone game), especially compare game like MapleStoryM.... jump puzzles are challenging, I’ve done 2 so far and it takes me about 10 minutes each to figure it out(thanks god there are status”bonfire” near by the puzzles.
A note to the developers. I’m not that far into this game yet, but I wish when you are far enough the game, of at the end of each act enable teleport using status back to nexus(for the acts you’ve completed story wise). Because I’m going to be back tracking and hunting for those missing treasures at some point, and I would like to be able to go back to the nexus when I’m done with the map.
Actual good game on mobile?
To get straight to the point, I’ve played hundreds of mobile games across various genres and this is probably the best one.
Does this mean that it’s for everyone? No, maybe not. Similar to Souls games, the story is pieced together from hidden text, easy-to-miss dialogue, and what you figure out yourself. If you want a narrative-heavy game, this might not be what you’re looking for.
However, while it’s pretty typical, if you like this kind of thing then this game is exactly what you’re looking for. I personally enjoy this type of narrative, it adds to the gameplay without weighing it down.
As for the gameplay, it’s beyond what I would expect from a mobile game. The controls are extremely responsive, everything feels clean. It plays just like Castlevania: lots of dashing. And frankly, it feels great.
Movement is wonderful, fights feel incredible. Control-wise, this game is well ahead of even most PC titles. I never feel like I’m being hindered by mobile controls, which is a feat in-and-of itself.
No micro-transactions, no pay-to-win, no ads, nothing invasive or annoying, just a genuinely good game.
NOTE TO DEVELOPERS:
I returned to East Garrison later in the game (to search for the treasures I missed) and somehow initiated the mini-boss fight again. Not sure if it’s intended or not, just wanted to let you know that it happens.
