I took the time to try out Evil Genome by Crystal Depths Studio. The developers describe this game as a mix between Metroid and Castlevania. The exact term they use is Metroidvania. This game was certainly missed this summer as it came out only on PC and not a lot of news outlets covered this game.
It’s only $14.99 if you want to try it out. Does Evil Genome stand up to the platforming classics that stood the test of time?
