Kyle missed out on a lot of classic games in his childhood. Most importantly, Kyle never played a single game in the Castlevania series. We’ve already seen him complete Castlevania by defeating Dracula during the autumn, but he’s returning to Transylvania once again to help lead Simon Belmont to victory.
This game in the series is the most unique of the NES trilogy, leading the player on a journey in a small, open world. While the first and third game lean toward an arcade-style design for each stage and the gameplay, Simon’s Quest is one giant map that the player explores in order to gather different body parts of Dracula in order to resurrect and kill the vampire once and for all.
Playing the game blindly can be quite difficult, and without a guide it is easy to get lost or sidetracked. In-game characters were deliberately programmed to lie to the player which can leave you wondering just where to go next.
Stay tuned for more of Kyle experiencing this classic NES game and more of myself growing increasingly frustrated throughout the journey.
