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.

Someone wanted me to look at this hack and give my two cents. Here’s my two cents.

Everything feels like a cartoon with some areas not popping out at all. The main character is a reskin of Simon’s Quest Simon with a…bandanna and shorts(?). I get the fact that he’s the son of Simon but not an actual twin. The music is nice though feels like it doesn’t go with certain areas. The platforming is placed decently though the controls somehow feel stiff. Game play is balanced so that’s a plus to this.

Part of me wants to say no to recommendations on this but the balanced game play does make up for it so it passes though barely. I do encourage the author of this hack to go back and redo a lot of his stuff for graphics and make this stand out more as it feels like I was more in a cartoon rather than an actual Castlevania game. I know each of us on here has their own artwork style but this needs to be reworked as it has a lot of potential to stand out more with the music and game play.
