Looking Back: Milon's Secret Castle

Metroid demolished expectations of what a sidescrolling game could be, opening the door for the NES staple known as the non-linear platformer. Some copied the Metroid formula to the letter, while others altered the structure a bit. Most of these games had an element of clumsiness in one way or another, but none more than Milon’s Secret Castle.

Re: Looking Back: Milon's Secret Castle

Oh man was this game frustrating when I first played it. I had no idea where to go or what to do.

The first time I made it to the second floor I was so happy.

Because Hudson was probably the biggest supporter of VC.

Although now VC has pretty much been abandoned for the most part.

What do you mean? They aren't porting many more games to it? Why? Was it not profitable enough?

Support for it has pretty much gone down the drain. Many weeks now there isn't any new release at all, where it used to be 3 per week.

This article sums it up pretty nicely.

Re: Looking Back: Milon's Secret Castle

The major problem lies with the ESRB.

Since the ESRB has changed it's listings in the last 20 years the vast majority of game devs would have to pay to have their games re-rated by the ESRB. It's a blatant rip-off.
