The game is a pretty transparent reference to the Castlevania games, particularly the older ones which were straightforward platformers rather than the more famous and more recent {{castletroid}}s. In addition, it fully means to {{lampshade}} various videogame tropes, and does so quite shamelessly, with famous zany videogame quotes popping up all over the place. And just look at the names of the six levels:

** [[ClownCarGrave Endless zombies in graveyards]] and buildings. Though the way the graveyards are set up makes them more like VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins's version.
** The epilogue, which speaks of this tale having to repeat itself in about a hundred years. (The Castlevania series canon says that Dracula rises once every century, shortly before the turn of the century.)

* BossRush - a small one in the last level, where you fight two bosses back-to-back: [[spoiler:the hailfire dog and the giant flying eye, which also happened to be the bosses of the other castle level in the game]]. Fortunately, you now have access to more ability cards.

* FunnyAnimal - Robert, Cliffy, and the rest of their family.
* GoddamnedBats - the winged eyes, which actualy behave kinda like the dreaded "Castlevania birds".
* Lampshading - everything. ''Everything.'' From Robert's wife asking him to pick up milk along the way, before the first level, to Robert commenting that his son has no taste for dramatic monologues.

** Robert complains that there is a forest in the way between him and the final level. Then the TitleCard of the next level shows up, calling it...The Forest in the Way.
* LostAesop - presented as a lampshading. Cliffy learned a lesson from this whole ordeal, a lesson about toilet paper and evil things.
* MediumAwareness - demonstrated by Robert before he corrects himself after referring to "the last level".

* [[strike:MonsterMash]] - actually, this game surprisingly averted this trope. With the stock horror and platformer settings you'd think you'd get some classic monsters, but most of the monsters in this game are actually unique to the game. [[supersecretspoiler:Please don't delete this entry; the strikeout is intentional.]]
