Earlier than you begin calling Konami as a result of somebody is claiming Castlevania is coming to their console (been there, carried out that, made some associates), this isn’t an official port. Intellivania is a Castlevania-like sport in improvement by an impartial homebrew developer. It’s clear by the best way issues are laid out that that is supposed to be Castlevania for the Intellivision console.
From the introduction sequence that includes everybody’s favourite whip blissful hero outdoors the gates of Dracula’s Citadel to the enduring degree design of the entry corridor – Castlevania is coming to a brand new platform quickly. The query is when, or if, Konami will step in and cease this from being completed.
Based on the Intellivania thread on AtariAge, this sport is accomplished and solely requires a little bit of polish now previous to launch. What the developer, Skywaffle on AA, has carried out right here is launch a small demo for followers to take a look at and revel in a few of his progress up to now.
Clearly there are some graphical variations between the unique Castlevania on the Nintendo Leisure System and this fan port to the Intellivision. For one, we lose lots of element however there is sufficient to perceive what’s going on. Zombies are recognizable by their colour, the enormous bat on the finish of degree one is clearly the evil boss, and Simon Belmont has his iconic weapon, the whip. What extra do you want?
This lack of element is what’s so superior about Intellivania although. Skywaffle didn’t have as a lot graphical energy to work with as Konami did with the NES however issues are nonetheless very a lot “Castlevania”. Form of like how the Nintendo Recreation Boy variations of Castlevania had been missing in some ways moreover clearly colour however they nonetheless had that Castlevania feel and look to them. That’s Intellivania as effectively.
Anybody obtained bets on the chances Konami is available in on this one?
