A departure from the norm, Encore of the Night marries the Castlevania universe with puzzle gameplay, providing an intriguing experience for fans and newcomers alike.


An inventive twist on a classic, Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night offers a unique puzzle-based experience set in the Castlevania universe.


The game follows the story of Alucard, the son of the evil Count Dracula. Alucard is drawn to CastleVania to put a stop to his father’s reign of terror once and for all. However, there are others who roam the castle, and not all is as it seems.

The game is mainly a drop pieces puzzle game, although combined with role-playing elements. The player is presented with different path options throughout the course of the game to explore Castlevania and fights enemies in versus puzzle matches. It counts with an inventory system where the player can equip different items – such as weapons, armor, and relics – that grant a variety of boosts and powers, as well as powerful spells they can use in battle.


Features familiar faces from Symphony of the Night, including Alucard, Richter Belmont, and Maria Renard, each with special abilities used to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.


Players match three or more symbols to attack enemies, break barriers, and progress through the castle, incorporating RPG elements like character leveling and equipment upgrades.


Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night stands as a daring experiment in genre fusion, offering a refreshing yet polarizing take on the Castlevania saga.
