Maldita Castilla, by Locomalito

Spanish developer Locomalito has released a short demo for its upcoming platformer Maldita Castilla, a tribute to old arcade games like Capcom’s Ghosts ‘n Goblins.

TIGdb: Entry for Locomalito

    This guy is one of my favorite indie game developers… This will be awesome, I’m sure :D

    The demo is great

  • Ryan Szrama

    Agreed. I’ve played Hydorah and L’Abbaye des Morts quite a bit, and this one looks to be just as addicting. : )

  • Tiganon

    scanlines make me nostalgic

    Fun demo and really nice filters. A bit on the easy side for such a ghost ‘n goblins looking game.

    Man, at the start menu, I almost thought the game was broken… I kept pressing the Enter key, but the game wouldn’t actually do anything. Turns out, you have to press X to start the game. Just a mild annoyance. Other than that, good music and great art.

    Didn’t find the game terribly interesting, as the gameplay was pretty typical. But, it looks nice, so I think with more challenging difficulty settings it will still be very much worthwhile.

    Unfortunately, the music doesn’t work for me. The game runs absolutely fine, the BGM just never starts.

  • Phubans

    I still haven’t played the game but I thought I’d let you all know how I feel, since I know how much you all value my opinion.

    While I’m on the subject, who wants to see me dance? I think you’ll find my rate very agreeable. I’ll even throw in my world-famous Derek Yu impression for you, at no extra charge. 

  • Phubans

    John Sandoval, I see on your Facebook page that Derek Yu is one of your ‘interests’.  Would you like to get together sometime for role-play?  I think you’ll find my rate very agreeable.

    Man, you’re pretty pathetic if you have nothing better to do than pretend you’re me on TIGS front page… lol

  • Phubans

    ^Not me.

    This looks really great! Gotta try it out tonight.
