Avenger $0.99 --> Free




It's free the 18th and 19th. Didn't get to play it yet but I checked out the thread and it looks worth a try. Definite Castlevania vibe going on.

This game's pretty good. Highly recommended.

Has the closest Castlevania feel out of all the wanna-vanias on the iOS.

Never played Castlevania but enjoyed this for 15 min or so and will pick it up again for sure. The software doesn't work on iPad 3 btw., stops at a half loading screen.

Any thoughts about those "In-App Purchases" for real money? Good or bad ones? Do we need them to proceed? Are they optional? Much grinding? Thanks in advance for enlightenment.

Look forward to checking this out, but really, I can't, for the life of me, understand why Konami doesn't port some of their GBA and/or DS Castlevanias to iOS. That company is run by morons. If it doesn't have Metal Gear in the name, they don't seem to care. But they'll waste tons of money on a 3DS game (Doctor Lautrec) that is destined to fail.

Yep, we've been waiting on Castlevania for years; Konami's match-3 game doesn't take the place of the real Symphony of the Night.

As for this game, if it didn't run at two frames per second it might be a fun distraction. :P
