Hands-on: It feels good to bonk pixelated monsters in this strange and evil land

While sprawled-out 'vania games have blown up in the last decade, we haven't gotten nearly as many tributes that are in line with the NES era of Castlevania, so I'm always happy to see more of 'em bubble up out of the indie scene.
