Not sure why I have not shown this here yet but here is my latest hack.
I had planned on having it released by today but will have to push it back to sometime next week before then because I decided to add some stage modifications and new enemy layouts, what I wanted was to bring a mix between the risky classic platforming from the classicvanias and mix it with this metroidvania so although I was not able to add automatic death pitfalls I did manage to add spikes at the bottom of each of the new layout platforming sections which will be filled with different enemies as well so fancy footwork will be required, you will not automatically die when you hit the bottom but you will regret it like the days of old if you knocked off towards the bottom and hit those spikes which take a great deal of heath.
Regarding the storyline I have made one that takes place shortly after CV3 with Trevor and Sypha just being married and right before Alucard takes his slumber. Also added some new portraits for the characters although I still have not changed the small ones for switching characters, special thanks to Jorge for the Sypha and Trevor ones, the color palette had to be reduced since the game only supports 15 colors (minus the background) so hopefully he is ok with it, if not I will remove them, here is the original page for these images,https://jorge-d-fuentes.deviantart.com/gallery/
the Alucard ones where used from a person named Nakoshinobi and came from herehttps://nakoshinobi.deviantart.com/art/Alucard-CV-3-portrait-106183922
Here are some images of the game in action.Images
