I really liked the whole game, it's great, is fantastic and is a great adventure,and the characters wow! but only one thing did not convince me, almost all the bosses seemed to have come out of megaman x, in the battles I felt that I was playing megaman x with a character from castlevania, and That seemed strange to me, I do not say that is bad, only that from my perspective I do not like so much, I think they could have done something more more monster castlevania style, I guess it is also because of the developers have already many make other games with megaman style... I think is that study, I'm not sure.
and miriam is the best!

Game crashed on me back in Stage 1 when I was in fullscreen. I alt-tabbed out to check a message, and when I alt-tabbed back in, the screen froze permanently, even though I could still control the game. I had to force-reset my computer since I couldn't get any window to appear on top of it anymore, not even the task manager.

I've been playing in windowed mode since and it's been running fine.

That being said, anyone got any tips for the damn Stage 5 boss?

My other thoughts on it?
-Despite having the retro aesthetic, the game manages to look REALLY nice.
-The music is fantastic, just like I was hoping it would be.
-I'm really surprised at how well Gebel plays. Considering he was the Alucard of the group, I was really expecting him to suck, but he's a LOT of fun. All four characters are really fun to play as and I'm hoping that you can restart the game with all four of them, cuz I want to do what I did in Castlevania 3 and do solo runs as each character. Though an Alfred-solo run is gonna be a fuckin' trial.

EDIT: Also, hey guys. Long time no talk. I've been lurking, even though I haven't posted in a really long while.

EDIT 2:

EDIT 3: Never mind I beat it. I didn't realize you can spam subweapons. I did that with Alfred and absolutely destroyed the boss.

My only opinion about this game, Curse of the Moon, is Boss Rush Mode.

It's unfair, unforgiving as hell

have some mercy pls? Like starting with full extend HP? This thing really forgot the word RUSH of Boss Rush like more than 300,000 miles away from it

Are you talking about the main game?
Have you tried Casual mode?
I can't finish any of the classicvanias but I am yet to die in this game in Casual mode. It is designed so well to give the weaker players the opportunity to see the whole game.

I’m going to be probably the unpopular opinion here, but I’m sadly disappointed in Curse of the Moon. It’s level design feels unfinished and unpolished in spots and I didnt find a single bit of music to be at all memorable. There are parts where it felt solid and polished, and then about 70% of the game felt like it was still in testing. The bosses were incredibly repetitive and not at all threatening. Some of the enemy “AI” was just downright lazy too.

The branching paths are great though. But it’s just not what I expected based on the trailer.

Never had any crashes. Maybe that's cause I downloaded it for play on the Switch instead of steam, who knows.
I got the Switch version as well and managed to crash it. I haven't been able to reproduce that bug though.

This is probably the main thing I think Castlevania 3 still does way better. I am a bit underwhelmed by the music but its not bad,

Finished the game last night and played through the first level on Nightmare. By the time I reached level 1 boss, both (sorry, don't know their names) vampire and belmont girl had died, leaving me with wizard. I swear I must have smacked the boss with my wizard stick like a million times and he wouldn't go down. I decided to just kill myself and come back with vampire to spam bats and use belmont girl's three knife attack as well. That made short work of him.

It's Friday, so hopefully i can get through nightmare later this evening.

Welcome back Claimh!

hehehe this portrait
https://i.redditmedia.com/ifWehaYbSoLDd07a1YASrxNNgTKIcbq9MEpQOnod8fY.jpg?s=2fa927fafc51fb1d7016e508ae5b565d

As soon as I came to the first portrait in the game I knew what was going to happen to me...and it did  :P  The second time I was more prepared and used Gebel's Simon-based SCV4 angle attack to stop it. I can agree with piscesdreams about some of the aspects of the game. I did feel unpolished in some areas, like they were in a hurry to get this out into the market. I hope they don't do that with RotN. But overall playing the game was a nice throwback to CV. Something we many never experience again unless Konami get's back on the horse.

This might as well be Castlevania 5, I love it! Can't believe this was only announced 2 weeks ago too, definitely one of the nicest surprises of the year.

My only complaint is the lack of Boss HP meter during Boss Battles, it would help a ton if I knew how much damage I actually was doing to the bosses.

IGA and Inticreates made a damn fine Classicvania! :D I hope they work on a 16/32 bit sequel....

Let Yamane and Yamada do the whole soundtrack, what a mess

Otherwise 9/10 game, sometimes it felt more like ninja gaiden or mega man than castlevania, but this isn't castlevania so whatever.
I wish the bosses weren't that telegraphed, the twin dragons and the library boss are the worst offenders.

Who's the composer? I actually liked stage 5's theme.

Stage 5 is Voyage of Promise from Michiru Yamane.
