Game completion 2021 #38 – Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest

  • Platform: Switch (originally NES)
  • Developer: Konami
  • Publisher: Konami

Came away amazed at the sheer scope and ambition of Konami’s second Castlevania on the NES. Side-scrolling open world? Day and night cycles? RPG mechanics? Hidden clues on how to find and kill Dracula? NPCs who feed you false information? This game has it all.

Absolutely brilliant.
