Become David, the young son of Castlerama's herbalist, who accidentally discovers his noble identity and true destiny: to be the hero who frees the Gorendal Valley from absolute evil.
Move freely through spectacular medieval scenarios in a 3D open world, facing ever-changing challenges: adventures, fierce battles, flights, enigmas, card games, even moral dilemmas.
Live a unique gaming experience immersed in an epic soundtrack.

Developed by the computer research lab Codenrama, Return to Castlerama follows the May 2011 release of the demo, a “photorealistic walk” titled Castlerama, which became a viral international success with over 300,000 downloads.

Powered by Epic's cutting-edge Unreal Technology, R2C expands the boundaries of photorealism on mobile while providing a rich and varied gameplay.

Believe the Reviews

Gates of Eden

Everything I wrote about the earlier version is still true, only worse. LISTEN UP DEVELOPER: I paid for this game. You owe it to your customers to make it possible to access the total game experience without having to deal with your meaningless and impossible “puzzles”. And note well, sir, the weapons selection is faulty, I go for a knife and end up with a crossbow? What kind of foolishness is that? Fix this game and make it playable! NO SUPPORT: When I go to “support” my browser returns “file not found”.

I wondered why there were so many negative reviews; now i know. Believe them, my friend! While the scenery is great, really that's about it. What good is scenery if you cannot get to even look at it because of stupid game design. Without the excellent video walkthroughs currently online (thanks, Religious Gamer) it would be *absolutely* unplayable. Even with the video walkthroughs it is still *practically* unplayable. Scrolls laying around in random spots yield endless blocks of incoherent text containing much gibberish and a very few obscure clues. I didn't buy this to read a book; I bought it to play a game. And the gameplay is terrible because the controls are awful and because the challenges are too difficult given the control system, even on easy mode, and they require large amounts of backtracking just to repeat and fail again. I'm talking dozens of attempts, 60+ in some instances. After repeated drownings and endless attacks by rats I have deleted the app and hope never to return to Castlerama. A "save" feature would be helpful for those determined to slog through it but if you like scenery just get "Castlerama" and enjoy the view. This sequel is definitely an app to avoid. Not fun, not playful, and definitely not relaxing. Save your money, you can do way better even if you just buy a hamburger with it.
