Hack of Castlevania

Description:

This is a hack of the original Castlevania on NES. xXbelmontXx did all the graphics, sprites, stage designs and the ending while Optomon worked on the music and other things.

The game features:

  • New graphics
  • New stage designs
  • New sprites
  • New music
  • Map screen has been removed because of it not making sense anymore and replaced by a simple ‘’level X - Ready'’ screen.
  • New ending screen

Story:

It has been a 35 years since Simon Belmont’s last confrontation with count Dracula. This time, a group of men with evil intents resurrected Dracula with the brutal sacrifice of a virgin. Slowly, monsters are starting to creep into the countryside and soon into the towns and villages of Transylvania. The count roams the earth again. Aware of his family’s history, Simon’s son, Daniel, grabs his ancestral whip and sets off into the darkness to meet his destiny.

Fun hack - good balance

Reviewed By: resq on 17 Oct 2017

This one seems pretty good - it’s fun to play and not too hard.

The level design is pretty decent and not cheap. It’s pretty straightforward. The graphics are good in some parts and just okay in others. The title screen is okay I guess - it’s pretty basic. Not bad just simple. The graphics are actually a little bad on stage 3 - a lot of blocks everywhere. The graphics on the enemy sprites are quite good though. The bat looks better and more evil. I think there was ghosts that looked pretty good.

The gameplay is good because it stays pretty much true to the original and isn’t cheap. There may be a few parts on level 3 or level 4 where it can be hard to notice there is a pit.

Overall I played this up to level 4 and never passed it. It’s not too hard though - I’m sure you won’t have any problem.

I recommend it because it is a solid hack that isn’t cheap and the graphics are pretty good in some parts.
