This is a review of Castle on the Night Land.

I really enjoyed Castle on the Night Land, and it's definitely one of the best OHR games of 2011 if you ask me.

Willy's visual style, excellent writing, and love for mazes suit the adventure/puzzle game very well! Castle on the Night Land presents the player with a big castle to explore and unearth the secrets of. You have to find items, sometimes by sniffing around for hints, and be careful to avoid enemies until you can take them.

It's not an easy game, but the challenge always feels fair and compelling. While I do think the monochromatic style hurts my eyes a little at times, it's hard to deny these maptiles are fantastic, and you can really get sucked in despite how unrealistic it is. Castle on the Night Land does a lot of what Star Quest was going for, but I feel its more compact and focused nature is a great boon.
