Holy Diver

Nintendo Entertainment System

Game Description:

Holy Diver is a platforming action video game with some rad references to rock musicians. Developed by Irem in 1989, it was exclusive to the Japanese market, and never released outside of said-country.

Gameplay can be described as a combination of elements from Metroid and Castlevania (not to be confused with Metroidvania) with the protagonist being able to shoot balls of energy forward or above from his hand, and collecting powerups throughout the stages and beating bosses (similar to Metroid). The overall design and artstyle of the game can be compared to Castlevania.

You play as Randy, an infant son of the weakened 16th Crimson Emperor Ronnie 4th, who is on a quest to obliterate the evil Black Slayer, and restore power to the lineage of King Crimson.

I just discovered this game is a tribute to the legendary metal man Ronnie James Dio and we got a good translation. The translation does its job for sure. The author did well and all is translated to English and if you never tried this, you can now!

As for the game itself, well it’s brutally difficult like Battletoads and Ninja Gaiden unforgiving. Be prepared to use them save states if you dare to complete this trial.

Maybe someday someone can make a patch that could have it that you don’t jump every time you take damage. Would be glorious!

All in all, translates well, but play if you really want a sick challenge.
