Maldita Castilla EX is an extended version of the action platformer that's full of creatures from medieval myths from Europe and chivalry romances.

Yoyo Games, developers of video game creation Engine GameMaker Studio, announced last week that on summer 2018 there would be the option to export directly to Nintendo Switch on their Engine, after a reaching an agreement with Nintendo.

This announcement is very important for video game creators such as Locomalito, who uses the Engine to develop all his masterpieces. Before, the adaptation work required to bring the games to the platform was no small feat.

Nintendo Switch has been in the mind and heart of many fans, requesting it every chance they got. Therefore, it only makes sense to confirm that, Abylight will release both Cursed Castilla and Super Hydorah for Nintendo Switch as soon as feasible.

Super Hydorah is a nonlinear horizontal shoot’ em up designed to offer a challenging and memorable experience, sublimating the wisdom and richness of traditional shmup classics. The game has direct action, nostalgic art and a wide variety of unique spatial content and situations. It is hours of intense fun, alone or with your friends, to face the menace of the Meroptians aboard the Delta Lance.

Cursed Castilla (Maldita Castilla EX)

Inspired by the best tradition of classics such as Ghouls’n’Ghosts, Shinobi or Tiger Road, Cursed Castilla pays homage to them and updates their legacy with its hectic and addictive gameplay, challenging difficulty and intuitive controls.

In Cursed Castilla you become Don Ramiro in order to fight the evil invading the lands of Tolomera, following the orders of the king Alfonso VI of Castilla. The action takes place in the Kingdom of Castilla (a medieval kingdom in what is today Spain), and thus you won't face the typical, well, ghosts and goblins: your enemies will be creatures such as mouras, ojáncanos and nuberus, monsters from the European folklore, legends and chivalric romances.
