Castlevania-like Games Anonymous 04/21/2021 (Wed) 05:52:34 Id:ef1194 No. 290441
I'm suddenly in the mood for these sort of games. For the sake of a common definition I'm talking about any game that has the same look and feel as Castlevania, not that it necessarily has to be an action horror game or be monster themed. So something like Ninja Gaiden definitely counts. Spiritual successors, out right clones, fan games, or demakes are all welcome too.

Anyone else playing the Deedlit game?

I have now achieved full Sister of Battle mode.

I can't believe that I got to the end of the entire fucking game and only then did I discover that there are breakable secret walls. >99% What the hell am I missing?

Also what's with this room? There's clearly some secret here but I can't figure out what it trying to say.
>>295925 Me. It's pretty short, and pretty okay.
>>301636 The one in the middle is obviously a QR code.
>>301636 Crop to the window next time to help prevent thread derails and bullying. >>301719 They didn't do a very good job of obscuring it, but they probably couldn't do so given that it's a relatively fixed format based on imagery. I guess it could've been one frame of a relatively inconspicuous animation requiring you to screencap the frame then read it, or something. Then again, it's probably something they didn't want people to have a hard time finding.
>>301719 I came to that conclusion but since I don't have a smartphone I couldn't check. I did find the secret in that room you jump in the center 50 times and it leads to a shitty joke sword. I wonder if that's what the code says? >>301720 >Crop to the window next time to help prevent thread derails and bullying. shid
>>290672 You stupid fucking retard, that only applies to games with backtracking elements.
>>301791 You know I don't even really like the term metroidvania that much because it's so imprecise and worse it's being used incorrectly by normalfags. I saw the Curse of the Moon games tagged as "metroidvania".
What's the best Castlevania track and why is it Richter's? Is it Divine Bloodlines or just Bloodlines?
>>302804 Bloody Tears.
>>302811 second for bloody tears or dance of illusions
>>302811 >>302814 Bloody Tears is almost just the [free space] for Castlevania songs. It's both famous and really catchy. So other than Bloody Tears, two of my favorites are Dance of the Holy Man and Wicked Child. Also speaking of Bloody Tears, has anyone else noticed a trend of people thinking that BT is the night theme from Simon's quest?
>>302837 Isn't it the opening day theme though? Night is completely different >Bloody Tears is almost just the [free space] for Castlevania songs Thats why i gave Dance of illusions incase it wasn't accepted
>>302844 >Isn't it the opening day theme though? Yeah. BT is the field theme. Monster Dance is the night theme.
>>302864 im glad i got that right
>>302804 I'll never forgive the Smash remix for leaving out the best section of that song.

>>290441 If you want a 3D Castlevania but more in line with the originals in a way you can try Dark Souls of course. You wander through a seemless interconnected enviornment and find weapons, fight bosses and upgrade your character along the way, SOTN gave me a real DS feel back when I played it a few years back because they play and flow pretty similarly. >>290679 >>290781 >>290787 >>290810 Stop fucking confusing yourselves its obvious what I mean. If a first person shooter plays differently to another first person shooter I.E Halo vs Doom does that mean that Halo can't be a first person shooter? No you fucking idiots. You ever play Bejeweled and Tetris, can Bejeweled not be a puzzle game because its core gameplay and concepts are different? No, its a fucking puzzle. The definition and what it does is very cut and dry. Stop putting yourselves through mental gymnastics to hop into retarded conclusions you are not doing yourselves any favors. Metroidvanias are a subgenre of 2d action adventure games that play similar to Metroid and Castlevania there's nothing more and nothing less to it and somehow thinking Castlevania itself who is half of the reason why that genre term exists and its spiritual successor aren't Metroidvanias must mean that you are either trolling me or are a drooling troglodyte fucking IQ test failing Brazillian. >>300894 I beat it on the 3rd and it only took me 5 and a half hours to beat it. Its possible to go through the whole thing in one afternoon sitting. But yeah I PLAYED the game and its a solid fucking game dude, I loved it. Didn't bother with finding all the secret rooms or whatever, no achievements either but its still worth every penny.
>>303068 SOTN is much faster than Dork Souls, what are you on about?

What your ideal concept for a Castlevania clone/sequel that's never really been tried before. I have 3 in mind: >1. a Classicmetroidvania like Simon's Quest but with all the bugs worked out and perfected I don't think anyone anywhere has done that. >2. a Vampire Killer Castlevania 3 hybrid This is another one that I don't think anyone has even attempted. Being able to fully explore each level and also having alternate branching levels would be a really nice touch. Curse 2 kind of hinted at something like this in its design and frankly it would have turned out to be a better game if it had. >3. a Japanese themed Castlevania clone I would be fine with either a Classicvania or a SOTN clone. I imagine it would end up playing something like a Nioh 1 or Sekiro demake crossed with classic Ninja Gaiden and maybe with a little Sengoku thrown in. And I'd be damn happy with such a thing too. >>303068 >3D Castlevania The best shot for a good 3D Castlevania would be if Sony finally relents and puts Bloodborne on the PC and then someone mods it and Frankensteins together Cainhurst, Hemwick, The Astral Clock Tower, the Lecture building and maybe parts of Mensis and Old Yharnam and some of the chalice dungeons and then fiddles with the weapons and hunter tools.
>>302804 Wicked Child.
>>302804 >Metroidvanias are a subgenre of 2d action adventure games that play similar to Metroid and Castlevania there's nothing more and nothing less to it and somehow thinking Castlevania itself who is half of the reason why that genre term exists and its spiritual successor aren't Metroidvanias must mean that you are either trolling me or are a drooling troglodyte fucking IQ test failing Brazillian. Metroidvania isn't a term that encompasses all Castlevanias, you blathering idiot, because not every Castlevania is similar to Metroid. Metroidvanias only relate to Castlevanias from SotN onward, and Castlevania II retroactively, because those are the only ones that share design qualities with Metroid. The term is used to describe the games that emphasize exploration and the acquirement of new abilities that allow further exploration. That description does not apply to the majority of Castlevania games before SotN, which are the ones that OP was referring to. There's a reason Castlevania games are commonly categorized between "classicvanias" and "metroidvanias". Imagine if someone asked for games similar to the first three Crash Bandicoot games, and then someone said "those are 3D brawler platformers, I know some good ones", because Crash of the Titans existed. That's what you're doing.
>>302804 For me its a tie between beginning, dracula's Castle and divine bloodlines. Also i want to remind to everyone that opus 13 is a cool ass track.
>>303059 Which part? The keyboard transition between the intro and the guitar parts?(0:07-0:08)?
>>303126 My ideal concept would be a classicvania with more focus on movement abilities like the Rondo backflip. It's such a small addition but it makes the game feel so good to play and I find it an absurd shame how the Curse of the Moon games focus more on the NES/Draculas Curse era of classicvania than the Rondo/Bloodlines era. Preferably themed around the war of 1999. >I don't think anyone anywhere has done that. I know it's a free amateur fangame but really try TLC2. You might get what you want out of it. >>290467
>>303235 The entire section from 1:00-1:30 is not included in the Smash remix. It's a travesty.
>>303251 Youre right, its the best part and also were he uses grand Cross to kill the skellies in the intro.

For those of you who've played both, which do you prefer more Luna Nights or Deedlit in Wonder Labryinth?
>>304559 Deedlit. Luna Nights I liked the gimmicks but the game just grinds to a halt the second you get thousand knives and is too easy for a team ladybug game. Deedlit was all around really fun and you still got to play around with lots of fun shit like the chainsword too. I still think Pharaoh Rebirth+ is their best game

I cannot beat the fucking mummy boss in Episode 2.
>>304725 I can't make any headway on rape mummy I'm going to try this Egyptian rabbit game instead. It looks pretty fun.
