Shall We Play A Game #6: Simon’s Quest Redaction

Castlevania is a classic NES and SNES series that many old school gamers hold in high regard. The original Castlevania helped set a standard for side scrolling action games and even today remains fun and insanely challenging. Castlevania 3 was even better, adding different routes to take and different characters to play as and making the gameplay somehow even more difficult. Super Castlevania 4 for the SNES with it’s greatly tightened controls, great graphics, and interesting gameplay is considered by many to be the best of all the pre-Playstation Castlevanias.

Then you have Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest. This game is considered the black sheep of the Castlevania family. Clumisly mixing RPG elements to the Castlevania engine this game is typically considered the worst of the entire series, many saying it’s even worse than the N64’s abominations. Some however have felt that inside Castlevania 2 there’s a good game trying to get out. This lead to one person, TheAlmightyGuru to create a fanmade version of Castlevania trying to fix many of it’s issues. It’s this game, Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest REDACTION that I’m taking a look at today.

Happy Birthday Nintendo!

Today Nintendo celebrates its 121st birthday. The Big N started as a playing card company. They would later dabble in a few other industries, such as taxis and plastic toys, before getting into electronic gaming in the 1970s. Then in 1985, after the video game industry had been declared dead (with the exception of PC gaming which was still a successful niche market), Nintendo released the Nintendo Entertainment System, and the industry was reborn.


So Happy Birthday Nintendo. Gaming wouldn’t exist as it does today without you.
