    The mood, ambience, and ultimate meaning of The Eternal Castle all come together, intertwined and beautifully realised. It will be a long time before The Eternal Castle [REMASTERED] leaves my imagination, which, funnily enough, is exactly the feeling from which the developers created it.

    The Eternal Castle [REMASTERED] try to demonstrate the current maturity of the videogame medium simply using a few modern tools in a structure inspired by the adventures of the 80s, playing with the player mind starting from the title.

    The Eternal Castle Remastered is an enjoiable tribute to Prince of Persia and Another World.

    The Eternal Castle is more than a mere nostalgia trip for aging gamers still hanging on to their 5.25-inch floppy drives. In many ways, it's just as modern as it is retro and more than capable of holding its own against its more illustrious contemporary peers. Luckily it's just my memory that isn't as good as it used to be.

    The Eternal Castle is obsessed with the idea of feeling like a game pulled from either the late 80’s or early 90’s. It compiles successful hallmarks of that time in gaming and culture and rewrites them as an ode to a highly specific time and place in the minds of its creators. It’s more fun romanticize history than perfectly recall history, which is a method of operation that only really works in entertainment. The Eternal Castle is a remaster of everything and also nothing, and it’s immensely successful from either perspective.

    The Eternal Castle is unique, different, and very good, actually. If you miss cinematic platformers and its visuals don’t put you off, give it a try.

    In the end The Eternal Castle is a fascinating experience and one that you won’t soon forget. If like us, taking one look at a screenshot makes you immediately wanted to play it – be sure to check it out.

    The Eternal Castle (Remastered) makes an art out of misguiding the player, hiding behind its limited colour pallet (based on the CGA technology) a very convincing homage to cult classics like Flashback or Another World. Fast paced action, stealth mechanics, and some puzzle elements make it varied and fun to play.

    A game like this may have taken you a few weeks to grasp and explore in the ‘80s but faced with a modern society that deeply understands video games, it might only last a few hours. But, for those few hours, you’ll be whisked back in time to experience the origins of the modern platformer and better understand why the genre still exists today.

    I left my time with The Eternal Castle Remastered extremely impressed by its aesthetic achievements but more than a little let down by how much the gameplay feels like a chore. The quality of its visuals are undeniable, but sometimes it’s better leaving certain things, like clunky controls, in the past.

    The Eternal Castle is a neat experience that prides itself on its unique aesthetic and interesting environments. Unfortunately, gameplay felt a bit dated, though, and left me with conflicted feelings. Overall, The Eternal Castle is undoubtedly a title that is definitely style over substance.

    This faux-remake does what it sets out to do eerily well. There's just the question of whether that goal was worth achieving.
