The King of Castlevania Hacks

Reviewed By: brgr264 on 25 May 2019

Good god, where do I begin? Just one look at the title screen will tell you there was a lot has went into this game. Stage select was something I always liked about Belmont’s revenge and I’m glad it came back as a feature here. The graphics in this game are a great improvement over the original, and give the game some much needed polish. The music is also great, with some new tracks and returning old tracks. As for the gameplay, it has been improved just like everything else in this hack. The level design feels new and fresh, and doesn’t match the room layout of the original like many other Castlevania hacks. The need to find keys to unlock the door at the end of each section gives the player incentive to explore and find secrets. The relics are also a great addition. Each one does something different and can help you out when you’re in a pinch. The bosses in this game are new as well, with them being different from the original bosses. Along with that, a few new stage enemies make appearances as well. Each level is satisfying to complete and feels rewarding when you do. If I were to rate this games difficulty, I’d say it’s on par with, or a bit easier than the original Castlevania. My only real gripe with this game is that it doesn’t work with the improved controls mod. To conclude, this is a hack well worth trying out, and any Castlevania fan who doesn’t is missing out on an amazing game.
