Description of Return of Egypt

Return of Egypt is a very good Castlevania clone from Driven Phantom Soft, sporting fluid 2D sidescrolling action, plenty of well-drawn enemies, and excellent level design.

You star Moses as he returns to Egypt to battle various undeads and even Egyptian gods. Similar to the hero in Castlevania, Moses wields a whip in this game as his default weapon. The castle is very well-designed, full of traps, optional routes, and secret rooms. Similar to most console platformers, you cannot save at any point in the game, but only at "save points" - which are conveniently placed every few rooms apart.

One thing I like is the number of "special skills" and magic spells you will acquire as you play through the game, usually after beating each "boss" monster. Examples of these skills are rapid run and magical storm. Casting spells require magic points (MPs), so use them sparingly. Plenty of action, surprises, and smooth gameplay make this game the best Castlevania clone I have ever seen - and one of the best platformers in general.

If you like this one, also try Dracula by the same author who is apparently a big Konami fan ;) Two thumbs up!

The description mentions a previous game called Dracula.

This is a nice find. I'm enjoying this. Reminds me of Symphony of the Night just a little.

A quick note to anyone reading the comment section, the Alpha build is NOT the 54 to 65 MB file. It's the whole game. The 19 MB build is the Alpha. Cheers and thanks for uploading this!

Thank you for finding this! I thought this game to be lost but not so apparently.

This is an Alpha build. Some friends and I are searching for the actual game which was canceled under mysterious circumstances only to be released for Free in an issue of Romdia Magazine. Hopefully Konami wasn't responsible.
