–STORY–

1476, Romania. A terrifying castle rises up from the mist. Along with the castle rose a dark powerful being named Count Dracula Vlad Tepes. A man named Trevor Belmont was fated to defeat the powerful vampire, aided by a witch named Sypha, Dracula’s own son Alucard, and a pirate named Grant DeNasty. Together the team traversed the dark halls of Castlevania, defeating the count and his countless minions.

In 1777 a young child was born, and abandoned on a merchant ship with nothing but a headband with a mysterious crest, and the name Armund. The sailors raised the child on the high seas, and taught him the ways of being a sailor. Armund grew to be one of the greatest men that the merchant ship ever saw.

Late 1797, word started to spread of the legends of Count Dracula, and his tyranny in the land of Romania. It was about that time, that Armund ran into an old Romanian man in Serbia. The old man knew a lot about the history of Count Dracula, and his reign of terror in Romania. The old man recognized the crest on Armund’s bandanna, and told him that it belonged to the DeNasty clan, and that his ancestor helped defeat Dracula. Armund decided to leave his life on the high seas to seek out more answers about his ancestry.

Romania, 1800. It’s been 3 years since Alucard defeated his father in battle and has gone into eternal slumber. Armund’s search has taken him to the mountains of Romania, not far from the town of Jova. A mysterious letter hinted that he might be able to find answers in the castle of Count Olrox, a servant of Count Dracula’s. Armund set out of Olrox’s castle, armed only with an enchanted barbed rope from Serbia. This will truly be the greatest and most arduous adventure of Armund DeNasty’s life.

Could be a great sequel to Castlevania back in the day

Reviewed By: bogaabogaa on 05 Aug 2017

This hack has everything and did everything well or excellent. When I played the hack I did forget that this is a hack. It is a new game and a great sequel to the original.

The challenge is great. Hard but fair and there is enough stuff that helps you through for casual playing. New bosses that are very rewarding to kill. It was like back in the day as a kid when I played Castlevania the first time around. Sure it went a bit quicker I could beat it in one sitting. But the game play is phenomenal.

This is a game that can be picked up by anyone who is looking for a challenge. The sound is new and did fit the scene very well. I prefer the art style of the original but this is done very well. The levels are nice to look at and everything is crisp clear.

I am running out of words. Thanks to the creator for your awesome work.

Bug: I did walk through a door in stage 3 with Laurels active and it crashed the game.
