Awful Summer Jam 2018: Arseholevania

“Arseholevania” by marbenx.

“Explore the spooky castle […] as the whip-flailing and, for some reason, skateboarding hero Simon Belhawk!”

This “Castlevania” parody has it all: Physics-based whip mechanics, brilliant boss fights, retro pixel art and of course skateboarding. The huge manor with all the monster-filled rooms and the winding corridors is just the ideal location for it.

With a good dose of humor, this action platformer is always charming despite some frustrating passages, and the final sequence will convince even the last doubter. It may be a potentially unnecessary sequel, but I am very delighted that it exists. >>PLAY
