Bloodstained is an exploration-focused, side-scroller action RPG packing all of the best features you've come to know and love from the Metroidvania genre into a single, content-packed game. Play as Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist’s curse which slowly crystallizes her body.

Bloodstained finally delivers upon the promise of a modern follow-up to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and it does so spectacularly.
All things considered, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is exactly what a spiritual successor should be, and after getting to try it out, I can freely say that Iga-san and his team did an amazing job. Well done!
If you’re willing to look past most of the mistakes, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a great addition to this year’s lineup of Metroidvanias, and proof that Kickstarter can, for better or worse, produce an actual good video game from a massive funding. It’s far from being a classic, and it certainly isn’t up there with Symphony of the Night, but good games can exist somewhere in between – and in that space, you may end up enjoying Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for what it is: an imperfect love letter to a beloved series.
