The purpose of this hack was to make the original Castlevania much easier for gamers that find games that aren’t too incredibly tough more enjoyable.
- Players begin the game with 5 lives.
- Small Hearts are now worth 2 hearts.
- Daggers have been completely eliminated. They have been changed to either Crosses, Holy Waters, or Axes.
- The vast majority of bottomless pits are eliminated. There are still some left in to provide at least some challenge.
- Simon takes 1 HP of damage from most attacks and enemies.
- More porkchops and other items are hidden throughout the levels. There are even 3 items in Dracula’s room!
- Porkchops now heal Simon’s entire health bar.
- The corridor leading to Death no longer have Axe-Men and have been replaced by simple Skeletons.
This hack was created with the use of the Stake Level Editor.

Decent hackReviewed By: txf on 28 Nov 2014
I don’t care about most simplified hacks, but this is one I tried and it’s pretty good. I’ve always been bad at Castlevania, so this helps a bit. Although I think removing most of the pits isn’t the best idea. The pits are one of the hardest parts of the game, and being an easier hack, it makes sense to remove them, but at the same time, pits are a big thing in Castlevania. Removing most of them almost makes it TOO easy.
Also, I should point out that it’s “Castlevania (U) (PRG1) [!].nes”, not PRG0. Trying it on PRG0 just crashed the game after the title screen.
