Wow. There's no way 1997 would've believed that I could play that at will on a mobile phone. Amazing times haha.

There’s support for external controllers, achievements, and a “new continue feature.” It can be played in six languages: English, Japanese, German, French, Italian, and Spanish.

Yeah, but at that point Iíd rather just play it on a tv or a portable system versus my phone. Iíve actually thought of downloading it for my Vita a few times.

Re: Castlevania: SOTN mobile

The controls are starting to annoy me. I don't game on my phone often but I find myself missing the attack or d-pad buttons too often for a game like this, which needs some precision. I think this game would have benefited from one of those floating d-pads that appears wherever you tap rather than being static on screen.

Also nice to see they left the long Game Over screen in tact even though it's not needed for loading time anymore. I sure do miss getting laughed at when I die.

Good for some scenarios but useless when I'm on the go and need to kill a few minutes.
