MTB: Maldita Castilla Review

MTB: Christmas came early for me a couple of days ago when I heard that Locomalito’s Maldita Castilla was released. It’s a throwback to all of those games that used to make me smile/scream back during the days of the NES and SNES, one that marries great gameplay to heartless difficulty. It draws heavily from Ghosts N’ Goblins and Super Ghouls N’ Ghosts, but does so in a deceptive way. With the ability to take three hits and a seemingly generous checkpoint system, Maldita Castilla drew me right in and hooked me. It seemed like it would be an easier version of Ghosts N’ Goblins for the people who loved its gameplay but lacked the sheer grit to beat it. It was not. This game is really fun, but do not ever, ever, ever think that it’s going to go easy on you. (maldita castilla, PC) 4.4/5
