    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.

    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.

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