Shadowcrypt - Castlevania style game gets a trailer!

Onebitpunch have just released the latest trailer to their awesome looking combat-oriented 2d platformer, Shadowcrypt and damn does it look good! If you're a fan of Zelda II or Castlevania then this game fits that style perfectly and I for one am looking forward to it's release. Shadowcrypt focuses on tactical sword and shield combat as you explore long-abandoned catacombs while fighting the many enemies contained within. Take the role of a hero, pick up random loot drops, fight the evil Necromancer and defeat his undead warriors through 70 rooms and torch-lit corridors. Keep this one bookmarked gamers, it could be a good'n!

Available Soon on PC

    I'm not sure I like the idea of a human-sized skeleton that takes more than ten hits to kill. One of the things I enjoy most about the 2D Castlevania games is that most enemies have very little HP. The pace always has you moving forward. Everything else about this game looks great, though.

  2. This game looks like Dark Souls with graphic 2D :D <3

    It's probably easier to control that's for sure

    Early stages I guess, hopefully it's tweaked for the final release

  5. Maybe you know a game 2D (retro graphic) which is similar to Dark Souls? I played the "Unepic" and this game is awesome :)
