Castlevania is an amazing series, and though Simon's Quest is not the optimal game to be ported, I can understand the author's choice.
It is a simple game, and there is no leveling, yet lots of monsters, so a lot of time will be spent purposelessly. The difficulty is actually too hard, and there is no significance in the number of lives you have.
Besides the difficulty, this is a neat little game to pick away at during school... at lunch time, of course!
Good speed, background blurry when moving, hard to see.
Just the same as playing it the first time.
Large, but only 1 file. Its good.
Not as great as some, but overall worth a try.
