All in all, Odallus: The Dark Call is a fun and challenging throwback that conjures up nostalgia and frustration in equal measure. Tighter controls and an in-game map would help with platforming and exploration, but being unable to defeat a boss and progress to the end of the game as a result of a glitch is thoroughly unsatisfying.
Odallus hits the mark by embracing old-school art and level design while introducing adventure elements that make the campaign simultaneously deeper and less frustrating. Regrettably, its late-game difficulty and smattering of grievous bugs work to undermine everything the game does right. Anyone who grew up loving Castlevania and Demon's Crest, keep this game on your wish list. Just don't pull the trigger until a patch is released.
