Maldita Castilla EX Now Available on Steam

Those of you seeking a good tribute to ’80s arcade games such as Ghosts ‘n Goblins or Black Tiger may have head of Maldita Castilla, the side-scrolling action game released as freeware in 2012 by developer Locomalito. However, there’s a chance you may have missed its enhanced version from earlier this year, Maldita Castilla EX, which was released for the Xbox One with the help of Abylight Studios. Well, now you have a second chance to check out this throwback, as Maldita Castilla EX (also going by the alternate title of Cursed Castilla) is now available on Steam.

Set in medieval Spain with an emphasis on the country’s folklore and mythology (along with those from other parts of Europe), Maldita Castilla EX has you playing as the knight Don Romiro, given the task of defeating the evil creatures that have invaded the lands of Tolomera. The new version of the game features two extra chapters, new enemies, and new music, not to mention achievements and Steam trading cards to collect. It definitely looks like another potential pixelated classic, and is ten percent off from its regular price of $11.99 until October 27, so lovers of old-school action take note.
