Here is the upcoming thread.
It is from the same dev as Evil Trek

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

While the game's name and the icon are beyond nice or lovely for me, and it may look a little bit rough here and there, the controls are top-notch!
No customization possible, but personally, i think all is in perfect place (iphone 7 talking).
Even (double) jumping with a slide over to the shot button (to shoot) is possible. I like that.
I never played Castlevania, but i played Devil May Cry (ios/Capcom), and i love the atmosphere in this little installed MB 25,1 gem. Also, the levels seem not to be too small with quite some stuff to shoot, loot and collect.

I have no idea if this is a one-man show or not, but for this cheap buck, do support this talented Dev(s) and look forward to what's up next, already.


Two names in the credits.

There are no checkpoints in the levels, but enough life potions. And you keep what you earned or found, even when you die.
