One of the most impressive uses of Doom to make a totally new game that I've seen yet. It looks and feels just like Castlevania.


Awesome in each and every conceivable way! That's the way reimaginings/remakes should follow! A great retelling of one of the best platformers around!

Easily the best Doom mod I've ever played! The music, atmosphere, and attention to detail are all perfect.


This is one of the best TCs of 2017, top 3 I'd say.

Following the success of "Hocus Pocus" TC, this brings old 2D platformer faithfully to 3D, with true love and understanding of the original game, keeping the original charm and adding to it the abilities of a 3D game.

With all the respect to "Hocus Pocus", "Castlevania" is immortal classic and the remake shows us exactly why. It creates the desire to replay the original classic - that is one of the best platformers of all time, that has a right balance of discovery, challenge, mix of melee action and magic powerups - all perfectly balanced with easy to handle and intuitive controls. Addictive gameplay you don't want to stop. And now well adapted for 3D which brings a new life to it.
Very nicely planned and well crafted mod.

Both floor action and platformer gameplay are nicely done - in challenging yet realistic way featuring various atmospheric environments with large and well-themed enemy selection, everything is adapted so well.

A must-play.

Already 5 levels in and I must say, every detail of this mod really stands out, along with the fair challenge and feeling of plowing through Dracula's Castle as Simon in first person. Even that little AVGN Easter Egg made me chuckle. 9/10

Bro, this is some great piece of work! I am amazed by how well you managed to blend two of the best games ever! Simon't Destiny is a masterpiece of a mod! I highly recommend it to all fans of both games! Big congratulations and a solid 10 for this mod!!! This mod is sure to rise to the top!!! Well done and I hope we will see more of your work in the future!!! Keep it up! :)

Amazing mod, the quality of it is insane. As a fan of Castlevania, this mod really shows care and attention all over it, it's a must play for all Castlevania fans, even feels like an official game to the series, a damn good one at that.


Familiar, yet totally new and LOADS of fun!!! My two favorite game series together at last!
