Abandonware DOS title

Metroidvania: half Metroid, half Castlevania

Metroidvania is a made up word born from the merge of two game series titles: Metroid and Castlevania. Both games share gameplay and design elements that defines the genre. Metroidvania games are platform games featuring a game world that is freely explorable. Certain areas can be accessed only with player upgrades or equipment. Action is somewhat less intense than the usual platform game.
