This rather takes you out of the game, and C:OoS is already such a slow, plodding experience that spending twenty seconds navigating menus just to throw a fireball at a bat is a ludicrous proposition. This took me by surprise, because every other enemy in the game thus far has done negligible amounts of damage if they somehow managed to slip past my whip, whereas the minotaur can kill Desmond in three hits and barely takes any damage from your attacks. That doesn't mean this approach won't work, ports of sidescrollers or classic games can work if some time is spent fine-tuning the game control and being mindful of other factors like resolution and frame rates for the different handsets a game will appear on. It is not exactly a story that breaks the mould established by previous Castlevania games. There are also single use spells called Alchemy, which lets you shoot magic bolts or turn invincible. We want Order of Shadows to be a fun experience and something that is welcomed into the long list of Castlevania games.
Even though the game's enemy placement occasionally asks that you jump and attack at the same time, you may as well forget trying to do that easily - it's not going to happen. I found out that the game screen will expand to match whatever dimensions I set on my emulator, so I made it all nice and widescreen so that I can see the enemies before they're right on top of me. My guess is that during the conversion the track fails to loop and instead plays through once without starting over. Alternatively, I bought a small BlueTooth keyboard and played it that way, using similar controls as the phone but in a different layout. The biggest departure from the familiar subweapon system is that you can carry more than one subweapon at a time. This is why the Belmonts should invest in some less-lethal weaponry like, I dunno, rubber throwing knives or a whip with a taser sellotaped to the end. Gameplay has a surprising level of depth, all things considered, with an inventory system, multiple different items to be used as subweapons and spells to switch between at any given time, an upgrade to the Vampire Killer near the end of the game, and a cleverly hidden flame whip near the middle of the game.
Who will we be playing as? The most powerful weapon in Symphony of the Night, a whirling vortex of blades that transforms the wielder into a cross between a ribbon-waving gymnast and a combine harvester? You will probably die a few times, but its very easy to learn your lesson once, and you don't spend a lot of time replaying a mundane level just to get back to the spot where you left off. I suppose it is about time I started discussing the actual game, but I wanted to provide some level of context to view the game in. I have no idea, but if for some reason you decide to play this game then I recommend making the most of it. The one that any Castlevania fan has played through umpteen times before, where Dracula teleports around the screen, popping back to the material realm to throw fireballs?

And don't forget I'm playing this on a keyboard, so god only knows how it felt on a phone.
It is not exactly a story that breaks the mould established by previous Castlevania games. Have one of these lying around? Believe it or not, phones like this were the top-selling of 2007, and by a huge margin at that. Desmond Belmont, the playable character, has also a lot of weapons to collect along the game, like axes, swords and hammers, besides his standard leather whip. Order of Shadows features gameplay similar to that of Castlevania : Symphony of the Night and other games in the series. The next zone is more of the same, with the faintest hint of a maze-like layout half-heartedly dribbled on top.

It has no place in the official timeline - it takes place in the 1600s, somewhere, apparently. Gabriel Belmont is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural.

I'm not a fan of games with touch as a main control, and much less of the mindless mobile games of today. Hand cramps, eye-strain, headaches, immense heat from the phone sucking up battery , battery loss, interruptions from actual phone functions, and ungodly pricing held back whatever potential earlier mobile platforms may have had, and almost all of these issues have been resolved or improved upon significantly.
