The Eternal Castle Remastered is an interesting attempt, but it works backwards and forwards in equal measure, and its new additions thoroughly clash with its retro vision. It showcases enough unique artistry that I can’t imagine starting it and not wanting to finish, but it’s so mechanically flawed that I can’t actually recommend starting it unless you’re a hardcore fan of its lineage.
The Eternal Castle is more than a mere nostalgia trip for aging gamers still hanging on to their 5.25-inch floppy drives. In many ways, it's just as modern as it is retro and more than capable of holding its own against its more illustrious contemporary peers. Luckily it's just my memory that isn't as good as it used to be.
I left my time with The Eternal Castle Remastered extremely impressed by its aesthetic achievements but more than a little let down by how much the gameplay feels like a chore. The quality of its visuals are undeniable, but sometimes it’s better leaving certain things, like clunky controls, in the past.
