Unfortunately, a player would be hard pressed to find the crucial first hidden shop without outside help, and the shops’ hints are at times too cryptic. Also, the lack of a password/save system can make this exploration-heavy game overly challenging. Milon does get unlimited continues after the first boss, but that hardly makes up for having to rediscover so many things upon each play-through. While cute and engaging, this game may suit only the most patient player.

But, if there's one positive I can take from this game, it's that in beating the great skeletal beast I had a story that I can tell until the end of time! And I will.....

Milon’s Secret Castle is the type of game that people on the Internet will defend with the claim that, “It’s really not that bad.” This is because MSC is such a unique and weird game. I’m not sure I’d call it a cult hit, but strange games seem to come with a fan base who decide that they love them, regardless of any obvious debilitating flaws. Perhaps the people who make this “not-so-bad” claim actually believe it. I’m not here to belittle opinions, but I do believe that Milon’s Secret Castle should have been a better, more thoughtfully designed game. Milon as a character may not deserve better than his pre-programmed fate, but gamers do.

Hudson Soft produced some great games in their day, but Milon's Secret Castle wasn't one of them.
