After much waiting and excitement throughout the retro community, Sanchez has announced the release of Castlevania : Spectral Interlude for the ZX Spectrum. A very high quality homebrew release, which is based on Castlevania on the NES, but with a brand new standalone story in original ZX Spectrum 8-bit detail. It's been one of our most eagerly awaited games of 2014-2015 and to finally be able to play it just fills us with joy.


Featuring stunning 8-bit detail which really pushes the ZX Spectrum to it's limits, plenty of monsters, bosses and Castlevania style music this release comes as highly recommended and a big special for Castlevania gamers across the globe. As the developer states : Castlevania: Spectral Interlude is an action-adventure platform game with elements of RPG. It merges well known elements of classic games with some new ideas.
