Castlevania Remix

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

Castlevania Remix is a hack of Castlevania which incorporates the use of a few simple tones for the palette in order to create a bit of a sepia/black-and-white quality to the game, which lends itself very well to Castlevania, making it look more like a silver-age era monster film, which is definitely where the idea for Castlevania originated. Some might scoff at the use of a palette like this, but making the graphics look this detailed on the NES with a small set of colors is no small feat.

Besides the graphical changes, the level layouts are also changed, and in some spots it’s a lot more difficult, and in others it’s easier. One thing to watch out for, though, is a distinct lack of hearts, which makes bosses a lot harder to defeat since you will only get off a few shots with your weapons before having to resort to your whip. Oh, and also be on the look-out for camouflaged staircases in a few spots– if you can’t find them, you may find yourself stuck.

Also of interest is that the soundtrack has been rearranged slightly, and in some spots modified–but the sound hacks still need a little work. Perhaps in a future version.

The hack would also be good if it wasn’t unplayable! The only two available colors are black and sepia. Many times you fall into a ravine you do not even see and the stairs are invisible because they blend in with the background! Not to mention the bats that are totally black and you do not even see them coming! The candles are completely invisible and you are forced to spend half the time jumping like a rabbit! Frankenstein is too simple! As soon as the combat begins, the monster above Frankenstein falls and gives you the chance to kill frank easily! Finally, the cherry on the cake, there are blocks that you can not see because they are also invisible, and they block you!
