You either don't get hardcore way or you are trolling.

But I think with enough finesse, it's completely possible to do a "Castletroid" game like Symphony in a fully 3D engine.
CV64 were pretty good, at least when it comes to atmosphere and platforming, though neither were "Castleroids".

Lament and COD were just bad beat'em ups, who tried to be "Castleroids" and failed miserably. The only things that were good about Lament were cheesy voice acting, boss battles and a soundtrack.
