Another Princess Needs Saving!

The kingdom of Alexandria had slept peacfully for many years, free of wars and menace. But on the third full moon, fifty years after the king's victory over an ancient evil, the kingdom is attacked by a legion of evil monsters once again. The princess is kidnapped by an evil sorceror, and it's your duty as a royal knight to return her to the castle safely!

Castle In The Darkness is a retro-styled exploration platformer that blends the challenging-yet-rewarding gameplay concepts of classic NES games (like Megaman, Metroid, Castlevania etc.) with modern tight controls and fast play!

Key Features

  • An open-ended game world for you to explore!
  • Hundreds of enemies and bosses to defeat!
  • Many items to collect that will strengthen you and help you win!
  • Popular references that will amuse you (and probably also be dangerous)!
  • An awesome soundtrack of 8-bit melodic rock!
  • Tons of hidden secrets to find!
  • Extra game modes!
  • All the above and more for the (cheap) price of most games' DLC!

"It’ll be “very challenging”, a concept anyone who’s played Megaman will be very, very familiar with. As long as there are no bloody invisible blocks, I’ll be happy."

"But let’s cut to the chase and start talking about that sound – the chime of coins and shuffles of the sword, and then the soundtrack. And then the soundtrack. And then the damn soundtrack! Yes, we like it, just a little bit."
