Any Castlevania-style games?

I heard there was some game that was "in development" back in 2014 called "Belial" or something like that, and it planned to "beat Symphony of Night/Aria of Sorrow", but it's 2016 and right now when I google it no results come up (only a similar game "Wrath of Belial" which has zero things to do with it).

- Preferably 2D. 3D graphics, especially poor ones, for a game with only 2 dimensions, just give me a headache
- Gothic/dark theme
- Obtainable gear and upgrades, light RPG system
- Enemies you can actually fight, not some game where you jump around collecting coins and avoid everything that moves
- Boss fights
- Guns are not the main weapon

Already played Swordigo, Sword of X-something (can't remember name), Goblin Sword, Cally's Caves and Shantae.

Ark of Sinners
Dust - An Elysian Tale

Here are some lighter themed ones:
Traps N Gemstones
Adventure Time Game Wizard

And here are the stage-based ones rather than one game world similar to Goblin Sword:
Sword of Xolan
Magic Rampage
X-Men Days of Future Past

And, for a super short one, Tiny Dangerous Dungeons. Like a baby Goblin Sword with a Game Boy look and feel. Great fun.
