About Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow in brief
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow is a 2003 side-scrolling platforming video game developed and published by Konami. It is the third installment of the Castlevania series on the Game Boy Advance. The game is set in the year 2035, when Dracula has been sealed away after a battle in 1999. The plot follows the journey of Soma Cruz, a teenager granted occult power as a result of being a potential vessel of Dracula’s reincarnation. The player controls the onscreen character from a third-person perspective to interact with people, objects, and enemies. It was commercially successful in the United States, with more than 158,000 units sold in the three months following its release. Konami released a sequel to the game in 2005, Castlevanias: Dawn ofSorrow. It incorporated many elements from its predecessor, including the \”Tactical Soul\” system. It received praise from several video game publications, with some considering it one of the best games in the series since Symphony of the Night. The sequel was re-released in North America on January 11, 2006, as part of Konami’s \”Konami the Best\” line, and in a dual pack with Harmony of Dissonance, titled the castlevania Double Pack. It has been released in Japan and North America twice, once in May 2003 and again in November 2005. The second version of the game was released on August 25, 2005 in Japan, and again on November 3, 2005, in the U.S. and in the UK on November 10, 2005. It features the same combination of elements from platform games and role-playing video games as in a previous game Castlevadia: Symphony ofThe Night.
It introduces several features to the series, such as the Tactical Soul system and employs a futuristic storyline in contrast to the medieval setting of many other CastLevania games. The available weapons are largely medieval, including swords, axes, and spears; though a handgun is available. Players can trade souls between two Gameboy Advance cartridges using a cable cable. The rate at which enemies in the game can eventually yield a unique soul that can be absorbed by the player varies between enemies, with the few types of souls being identified as Bullet, Guardian, Enchant and Ability souls. The players can only have one of each type of soul at any time, and can only use one type of ability at any one time. Some of the abilities available to the player are limited by the abilities the player has, and progression between areas is limited by how many abilities they have. Despite the game’s medieval setting, the player can use a variety of weapons to attack and defeat the enemy. The weapons differ in their damage output, the range of the weapon, and the speed of the attack. Items and other accessories can be found by defeating enemies or by purchasing items from thegame’s shop. Unlike previous games, the game is divided into several areas that the player traverses. These areas feature different components, including different enemies, varying terrain characteristics, and a unique piece of theme music.
