I have now played for over 2 hours and have to say that I am REALLY, impressed, the game was better than I thought WOW got goose skin for the good team and everything is built up is real Castlevania comeback and feel.

Should wish KONAMI had learned from this and done something again.

But whatever a million, thank you never enough and say it's really a masterpiece. ;D ;D ;D ;D

Everthing is perfect the controls,atmosphere,music,levels, etc....

I've been enjoying this game far too much :)

Aside from the massive spacing and 1-2 difficulty spikes I faced up till the second half of the game, I really don't have any issues with the game. It looks, feels, and pretty much is a fantastic Castlevania game.

Once again Mig and company, thank you for a fantastic game. I can't wait to get to the end!

I have played a little and it is truly amazing game!

I just saved before the Count in the Mansion.

I will continue tonight!

It is a little hard game but that is fine. We don't want things to get "I just have obtained Claimh Solais" right?

Also I had such a SotN flashback when I heard the Abandoned Mines track ... perfect.

The voice acting is also amazing.

I really hope you can make money with making games! I know you are doing it for passion but this deserves to be on the shelves as well!!!

Thank you for creating such a masterpiece. You should somehow obtain the rights from Konami to be able to sell Lecarde Chronicles I & II Collectors Edition (DVD). - Kickstarter campaign? I'm sure lots of people would love to pay for these great games. They're worth much more money than every title Konami released in the past 10 years.

Or ported to handheld :D the NEW 3ds is compatible with the Unity engine and the PS Vita. Hell even the Game Maker Studio can export for PS Vita. I have no idea for Fusion :( I do not know to what system it can export :|

But this is just too good to become real :)

My current progress! I'm very tried...I must take a rest.

Also there're two locations that I noticed (slightly) broken background...





The upward point

The game caught the Castlevania atmosphere very well, just as the previous game
Great scenario, pretty designed bosses&enemies, almost perfect control scheme, cool voice acting... Everything just interested me.

Almost no repeated scene, cool day-night change added much more variation to enemy species, the time-related opened sky scenario in several places are so beautiful...

Game difficulty is a little bit harder than what I expected but I can take it.

The downward point

Actually I have several doubts about The Aura Blast system, mainly due to its limitation about player character's mobility (being hurt by enemies makes magic charging stops...Not a big loss at charging level 1/2 but if want to launch Holy Cross in boss battle it would be serious problem) Though we still have several counter measures it didn't change the fact that Magic power usage was limited sometimes.

Is there any possible way to further increase player character's mobility at the late half of the game (other than the short air dash succeed from previous game)? I'm wondering...

I also received report of several people (keyboard only user) troubled with keyboard control adjust since I'm used to gamepad I have no idea
Actually I still can't say the control adjust interface is user-friendly. Is there un-counter-able technical problem exist in game program? I did have some doubt.



Despite that, if we Countered the flaw/issues a great all-new Castlevania game awaits all of us kindly!

This is definitely a labour of love and it shows. It's even better than the predecessor and that is saying quite something. Aside from some small graphical glitches and a not-quite-working windowed mode, the first impression I have of this game is phenomenal. Definitely worthy of the name Castlevania so far.

After playing this masterpiece I'd love to see Castlevania Lecarde Chronicles 3 :) But this time main character should be Eric Lecarde. Action should take place before the events in CV Bloodlines and the graphics should be closer to CV Bloodlines.

Thank you again for creating this masterpiece.

I just wanted to pop in and give props and thanks to Mig, Belmontoya and all the contributors for knocking this one out of the park! I'm only a couple hours in, but I can tell how much of a labor of love this game has been for you guys and I imagine I can speak for everyone in saying that we all really appreciate the time, effort, and love it took to make such a fantastic game.

Y'all really nailed the atmosphere, the music is phenomenal, and this is definitely deserving of the name "Castievania." The boss battles are really impressive. This far there have been some really cool boss ideas and they've been well executed. I also have to say that I love that this game pays so much homage to Simon's Quest, which is the game that got me into Castlevania in the first place, and I feel gets somewhat unfairly shafted when people talk about CV.

Anyway, congratulations on the release, you guys really did an incredible job (I really want to hear the story of how you guys got Robert Belgrade to do the voice acting btw!) and really went above and beyond for this. Proud of you guys.
