The original Castlevania games were 2d side-scrollers. However, this
is only loosely based on those games. My game would be uniquely my
own, but feature similar enemies and game play elements. So if I
wanted to do it in an FPS format that would only improve the game in
my opinion rather than detract from it.
One reason I feel FPS would be an improvement is I could use an actual
castle layout, and create it to scale in the game world. I could
create various passages, rooms, winding wooden staircases, etc to give
you the feel of being in a ancient spooky castle. Plus with 3d comes a
variety of extra movements such as the ability to jump left, right,
ahead, backward, or straight up. You can spin in place, sidestep left
or right, etc. There are a lot of things that could be added to
improve the game over a 2d side-scroller in terms of realism.
