Castle in the Darkness knows what it wants to be and succeeds marvelously. It’s a smooth-playing action platformer that meshes a variety of genres together nicely. The RPG elements fit in perfectly with the platforming and everything desired can be done at any time thanks to responsive controls. The biggest enemy here is your own natural instinct to rush through a game when your best bet is to take your time and proceed with caution.

Por todo ello, Castle in the Darkness es un juego a aconsejar y reivindicar. Es una pena que títulos como este pasen sin pena ni gloria, en este caso por nuestra biblioteca en Steam, cuando dentro de él hay unas buenas horas de disfrute y placer, mientras otros acaparan portadas y protagonismo de todo tipo. Así que si os gustan los juegos de este estilo, éste es uno de sus ejemplos más recomendables.

De l'époque 8-bit, Castle in the Darkness semblait avoir pris le meilleur. La réalisation, le style, le culte du boss et des secrets. Il y a ajouté une incroyable fougue et un contenu des plus denses. Malheureusement, il a pris aussi une triste caractéristique de l'époque : une difficulté inégale. La faute à quelques légers défauts de conception, mais aussi à une tendance à combler certains espaces d'une arme secrète, la pointe instadeath, tout en plaçant des points de sauvegarde arbitrairement.
