Odallus – The Dark Call is very obviously an NES influenced game.
More specifically it is basically just Castlevania. References to Symphony of the Night and other older Castlevanias are all over the place.
The game was a lot of fun, with a lot of interesting old-timey Castlevania-ish equipment and secrets.
It does a great job of reproducing the feel of a high quality NES classic, especially with the great NES sounding soundtrack.
The only downside is that it’s only about 4 hours long, even if you go find every secret.
Still…awesome retro game though. Play it if you like such things. I don’t have time to discuss it further because I have to go play DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
