Game description

Behold demons, the bravest king's knight, Don Ramiro has arrived to stop you all!      

The tears of a young witch have been turned by a demon into a key that opens up a gateway for the evil in this world. The King Alfonso VI of León has gathered his loyal knights to get to Tolomera del Rey and finish the nightmare using the power of the Witch’s tears. Banish the zombies and demons that entered the Kingdom of Castile with Don Ramiro, the loyal King’s Knight, and his friends. For that, you will use a different range of weapons to defeat your enemies through the cursed lands of Tolomera, in a pure classic arcade action style.

9 / 10 - VidaExtra

"A necessary experience that you will enjoy as you used to enjoy in the 80s or 90s [...] In conclusion, 'Maldita Castilla EX' shows us again the good work of this Spanish team. Few better options we will have to remember the arcade times."

8,7 / 10 - Areajugones

"With a classic and accurate gameplay, [...] it's a great game that will satisfy all of those nostalgics. In addition, the game can also introduce the younger to the magical world of the impossible arcades

8,5 / 10 - Hobby Consolas

"It's a video game made with passion, [...] and, also, one of the best current retro video games that we've played"

8 / 10 - ZTGD

"If you are like me and grew up pulling your hair out at these punishing side-scrollers, this game is an easy purchase. It captures the magic, while bringing enough of its own charm to make it feel fresh. Plenty try to capture that magic, but few achieve what the team at Abylight Studios has managed to create here."

8 / 10 - Brash Games

"The game is old school through and through, and makes no apologies for providing an experience on par with the classic Capcom platformers of yesteryear. More importantly, with varied levels and tight mechanics, it’s just great fun to play."

8 / 10 - GameSpew

"Anyone looking for a challenging action-packed 2D adventure won’t go far wrong with Maldita Castilla EX."
