I have been playing games ever since I had the Xbox and had spent hours in various genre, and various systems like the PSP, and PC. I preferred Action-Adventure games focused on RPG or FPS mechanics, but recently developed a taste in Horror. However, Castlevania: Curse of Darkness was undeniably my first RPG game since 2005, and with this title, I started to gain an interest in the Castlevania series.
Then I tried the other Castlevania titles as well, continuing with Order of Shadows and Dawn of Sorrow for mobile phones, several years after finishing CoD. And probably because of too much interest in the series, I played every Metroidvania title there is for the handheld systems from GBA to the PSP.
I find the series full of consistent mechanics, where Dracula is almost always the final boss, and not fightning an incarnation of him leads to a bad ending. Recurring monsters, similar Entrances, Long-haired protagonists are very common, even the same Game Over music had been remixed for all titles.
I have played both the Mobile (Java) and Nintendo DS versions, and was able to spot the numerous differences and features omitted in the cellphone port. It was very easy to max out Soma and obtain the Death Scythe in that port, so I was challenged by the DS version.
The Poison vs. Poison got stuck in my quest list when I sold the Long Sword, which is found only in the City of Haze. Also, I am still unable to get that 888% map completion rate, so no Nest of Evil yet.

Very short compared to Curse of Darkness. But since this is a Belmont-based game focused on exploration, the problem of level-grinding and weapon-crafting does not exist. Aside from Svarog, all other relics are actually optional in beating the game's final boss.
