I bought this on vacation while I had some down time because I watched the Castlevania anime and got the itch to play this again. This is probably the worst way to play it tbh and it's mostly brought down by the controls. It could be my phone and the sensitivity, but it is very frustrating when you miss an attack or don't move when you want. That said, it is SOTN which is very good and if you can get past the controls or have a controller, it's a good experience.

S22 Ultra. Fixed frame rate issue by setting a Bixby routine to change the phone to run at 60 hrtz when playing SoTN. BUT, the virtual controls are... absolute... trash. So many missed attacks, jumps, etc. Without an external controller, makes the game virtually unplayable. Shame, as I really wanted to like the game. As is, using only mobile controls, waste of money. Praying devs fix... but likely moot since last update was in 2022. Uninstalling 'til fixed.

A lazy, unfinished port but that's Konami for you. The gameplay speed is tied directly to the FPS, so if you are running this on a phone with a high refresh rate it becomes completely unplayable. To fix this you must turn off "smooth display" in Android settings, something they only acknowledge as being an issue for "Pixel 4" at the bottom of thier patch notes beind a "read more" button. It's been a known issue for years without so much as a updated splash screen to warn players how to fix it.
