Title: The Holy Relics is the best classic Castlevania (and its Homebrew)
Post by: Super TV Man on March 12, 2019, 05:58:25 am
I am not kidding. I have played through this twice in the last two days on my CFW PSP. It really is that good. I've also just yesterday ordered a physical NES cartridge of the game. It is amazing, new features that weren't even in the original trilogy and no sign of Dracula anywhere. This is Simon Belmont just doing what Simon Belmont does best... hunting monsters. And it doesn't have to include Dracula for that. This also allows the game to be part of the main story, off to the side somewhere without disrupting the continuity. The main villain in this is a genuinely disturbing creature known as Lord Ghoulash, a Satyr that lives in a starry place.

Fanbrew community... make more quality games like this, please.

considering the limited sprite pallets that is some impressive sprite work

Lots of homebrew NES games have physical releases. If they are good enough. There's even a website you can order some that don't exist and they'll make them for you.

Not sure where this one came from, but I'm glad to have it. Will be paying for it today.

Yes, I played that. Nothing quite like whipping Mario in the face and throwing holy water at Kid Icarus.
