Taking inspiration from the Castlevania series, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is solidly a Metroidvania-style platformer. Players must battle their way through a demon-infested castle. The original gothic side-scrolling action platformer was funded through Kickstarter and was developed by Koji Igarashi, who is known for producing the Castlevania series. The game boasts beautiful if macabre graphics. However, despite its inspiration, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night lacks depth. What’s worse, NetEase’s Android port suffers unresponsive controls that hammer the nail in the proverbial coffin of what could have been an engaging title.
