9/10 "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 "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 "It's a video game made with passion, [...] and, also, one of the best current retro video games that we've played"
8/10 "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 "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 "Anyone looking for a challenging action-packed 2D adventure won’t go far wrong with Maldita Castilla EX."
Maldita Castilla was originally published back in 2012 for Windows, Ubuntu, Ouya and Mac. This lineal action-arcade gathered unanimous recognition both from gamers and critics, not only for its addictive gameplay but for being a double tribute also: on the one hand, to classic arcades from the 80s such as Tiger Road, Shinobi or Ghosts'n'Goblins; on the other hand, to Spanish and European medieval history and legends.
Locomalito shares background with many other kids from the 80s: he grew up playing arcade machines and dreaming about creating his own games. He had ideas and wanted to work on them with a passion. Years later, this vocation drove him to work on those ideas and shape them in his own spare time. His goal: creating video games with an old school flavor – adventures that you could play on a straight run, created with pixel-art and chiptune music and sound.
