Nintendo Entertainment System homebrew development studio Gradual Games has released its side-scrolling platformer Nomolos: Storming the Catsle via a production run of NES cartridges at RetroZone.

From its soundtrack to the background graphics, Nomolos exudes a strong Castlevania vibe -- it's a lot of fun to play, too! It's briskly paced, and there's a decent amount of variety in the level design and the boss encounters. It's definitely one of the best homebrew games I've played for the NES.

Nomolos is priced at $32 (plus shipping), while a boxed edition costs $41. A two-level demo is available at Gradual Games' website.
