Castle in the Darkness – Prologue (2012)

Yet another retro platformer (demo) referencing 8/16-bit games (oddly, where most retro games have a NES/SNES vibe, this one had more of a Master System/Genesis vibe). Controls are tight, but since every death sends you back to the beginning, it’s not as easy as it looks to get to the end. Neat references to old games (lots of secrets) and prominently Spelunky together with well-done platformer gameplay makes this a very satisfying experience.
