Simon’s Destiny is a mod or a full conversion of Doom based on the NES Video game Castlevania.
Back in 1986 or in the 90’s I couldn’t have even imagined Castlevania being in First Person View. But, this developer(Batandy) has made it possible!
In this article and video, I will be covering and playing the Doom Standalone Mod Simon’s Destiny. Maybe you are looking for a castlevania doom wad well you have found it.
Simon’s Destiny is a STANDALONE GAME (sort of)
That’s right, its all completely for free. You don’t have to worry about purchasing doom2.wad or having any wads to experience this masterpiece.
Most mods require the doom2.wad or similar to work but you won’t have to worry about that for this game!

Simon’s Destiny Doom Mod: Conclusion
This mod is leaps and bounds better than some of the Doom Mods I’ve recently played. Maybe it’s the nostalgia factor for me with the original Castlevania game. But, the sounds, graphics, and gameplay is just plain fun.
Got a Doom mode or Indie game you would like for me to recommend and try out? Maybe you just want someone to try out your game and get some free publicity.
