Lost Castle

Lost Castle is a super cute, super hard action RPG with roguelike elements and randomized dungeons. Brimming with a host of hand drawn, humorous characters and environments that embrace retro action with modern twists. Prologue: In its glory days, Castle Harwood was the heart of a happy land governed by wise and virtuous nobles. But those days are long gone now. Calamity has befallen these lands, and wicked magics corrupt the castle and all that surrounds it. Demons have claimed this rotten place for their domain and even the might of the empire is thwarted by their dark army... and slowly, the corruption is spreading. Castle Harwood is lost. Yet at the heart of this nightmare, something bright glimmers and fills the hearts of the mighty with the courage needed to invade the castle. The Lost Castle is filled with the treasure of the defeated Earl and it is the promise of riches that calls you. And maybe you can do some good, too.

If you enjoy Rogue-like hack/slash fighters like Castle Crashers, then Lost Castle is right up your street.
One word of advisement when playing this game however. You will die. A lot. Much like the Souls-bourne franchise or The Binding of Isaac, this game is about trial and error gaming. Therefore, grinding is imperative if you hope to progress through the game. The RPG elements apparent in the Lost Castle will lead to gradual improvement, though even in the higher levels of character development it is still possible to struggle. Even when you have reached the point where most individual enemies can dispatched easily, the game engine will throw you a curve ball and swamp you with hordes of them, leaving you to watch helpless as your HP gets shaved away like scarab beetles eating a corpse.
In addition to this, while there is only a limited number of stages throughout the game, the maps and pathways between them are totally randomised, meaning that you never experience a level in the same way twice and you never know what's waiting in the next section. Further, this leads to the revelation that each stage has multiple bosses, with the chance of encountering them determined by how you choose your path. These bosses all vary in difficulty from the relatively easy to the downright hopelessly difficult. This can make it extremely difficult to adapt, and battle-hardened veteran players may wind up only scraping by victories by the skin of their teeth and faced with the daunting prospect of having to enter a new (probably unexplored) dungeon with almost no resources.
Add to this an art style reminiscent of old 1990s kids shows like 'The Dream Stone' and 'Transylvanian Pet Shop' and you have a very engaging piece of hardcore gaming.
Again, Lost Castle is not one for casual players and those seeking a less intense experience may want to look elsewhere. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes a bit of dark fantasy with their hack and slash.

I bought this game to play with my kids and was not disappointed! Totally recommend it!
Pros:
-Lots of weapon, armos and items.
-Interesting Boss battles!
-Developers really listen to community. Game had 5 years of constant FREE updates and few paid DLCs.
-Easy to learn and play.
-For me, this is a big one: the replayability factor here is really good. You really want to keep going and going!
-Price was something that felt worth it!
Cons:
-Difficult. I wish it had an easy mode or something, so I couldn't struggle when playing with my kids that doesn't know a lot yet. For example, the Bettle boss in the end are really really tough when you have 3 players and both die fast...it's almost impossible to kill them alone.
-Progression curve on the characters skills really takes time to complete!
-The way you obtain potions and don't know at first what they do. I feel this feature could only be applied in the nightmare mode, not normal mode.
-Shop spawns rng. The shop chambers had to be mandatory in every level. The way it is right now, RNG, sometimes I only find 1 through all playthrough. I believe this form should be applied only to nightmare mode.

I definitely recommend this game as I have enjoyed it a lot with my family.
I have played Lost Castle with both my younger children for a very long time, having played for the first time together as a trio when my son Calchas was in his diapers (3 year old then), still learning how to use a gamepad. I have also played the game with my siblings, younger friends and woman, who absolutely adore it; Lost Castle is a game of many fond memories for our family.

Review from Steam

Very nice game, with a dynamic system of weapons and abilities of each one, in addition to challenging bosses. Also, I found interesting the skill tree system. I hope they release a new DLC someday.
