While this is a fan made title, i.e. technically illegal as Konami has not licensed this version, it feels like an official Konami release. Aleksander Udotov and his team started out wanting to do a demake of Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest (my personal favorite and only game in the series I have beaten without cheating) Spectral Interlude quickly evolved into its own game. Read on to find out how well things turned out for Castlevania Spectral Interlude on the ZX Spectrum, of all platforms to program for."
