When control of the series transferred back to Koji Igarashi, his team would work on the Game Boy Advance's next Castlevania title after Circle of the Moon and move on to the following game hastily. With poor sales and critical reaction, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance hasn't received the same acclaim as Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo's later work, Aria of Sorrow and the Nintendo DS Castle... read more

Symphony Of The Night In A Handheld

I had played a couple Castlevania games before Symphony Of The Night and wasn't thrilled but that changed after SotN and until Harmony of Dissonance's release, SotN was hard to beat. But along came HoD and boy did it feel like I was playing SotN on the go.

The story is pretty simple at the start, the player plays Juste Belmont and is a friend of Maxim and Lydie. So when Lydie is ... read more

" Picture of My profile Last Played: 10/22/13 ~ 10/23/13 Purchased: 07/21/10 Playthrough: Second (first was on Double Pack) While replaying Aria was kind of spoiled by the fact the cartridge I bought was a bootleg, I know for a fact that my Harmony of Dissonance gamepak is official. Anyway, my feelings on Harmony of Dissonance haven't really changed in the three years since I last played it. Harmony is... a weird little game and just about everything about it is puzzling. It's far from bad but "

"No.082 / Added: 07.21.10 / Status: Played You don’t run into games like Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance too often – a game where it’s downright difficult to explain how it actually works. What first seems like an open and shut case of the bland and uninspired manages to become an interesting experience through an odd combination of the strange and bizarre. However, before one has such an epiphany the game is really easy to pass over. Last Played: 10.22.13 ~ 10.23.13 / Overall: 6 out of "

" Platform: Game Boy Advance Release year: 2002 Developer: KCET Though the fan and critical favorite of the Game Boy Advance trilogy is generally either Circle of the Moon or Aria of Sorrow, these titles don't hold a whipable candle to Harmony of Dissonance when it comes to creating a Metroidvania with such fun and addictive exploration. With its parallel castles, environmental interaction, and rewarding of the player for being thorough at map completion, the middle child doesn't need an extens"

"Posted on July 4th, 2012: When I in middle school, my favorite GBA Castlevania was Circle of the Moon, and I also liked Aria of Sorrow a good deal. I wasn't fond of Harmony of Dissonance as I found its graphics cartoony and its magic system overly simple. I lost it somehow and haven't been able to play it for many many (about seven) years. Getting back into it, I see how wrong I - as well as the market when it came out - was. The magic system is simplified, but less-is-more and do you ever reall"

Juste good old fun

“When control of the series transferred back to Koji Igarashi, his team would work on the Game Boy Advance's next Castlevania title after Circle of the Moon and move on to the following game hastily. With poor sales and critical reaction, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance hasn't received the same acclaim as Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo's later work, Aria of Sorrow and the Nintendo DS Castlevanias. It's undeniably easy, the story isn't original or even that important to the overall timeline, and it's pretty blatantly rooted in Symphony of the Night, but this is a truly fun experience with haunting environments, enemies, and overall tone.

Again as with previous entries a friend of the protagonist is manipulated by Dracula, eventually giving rise to a vaster, darker plan than” read more

Symphony Of The Night In A Handheld

“I had played a couple Castlevania games before Symphony Of The Night and wasn't thrilled but that changed after SotN and until Harmony of Dissonance's release, SotN was hard to beat. But along came HoD and boy did it feel like I was playing SotN on the go.

The story is pretty simple at the start, the player plays Juste Belmont and is a friend of Maxim and Lydie. So when Lydie is goes missing in a mysterious castle, both Juste and Maxim split up to search the castle to find Lydie. It gets a bit complicated and boring later on like most Castlevania games.

Really the gameplay is the main attraction and it's a 2D side scroller at its best. Lots of action with both fighting and platforming and having tight usable controls makes whipping, casting, and jumping a breeze.read more
