Castlevania: Blood Moon

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

This is an overhaul of the original Castlevania done using Stake, Tilelayer Pro & Hex Workshop. Many changes from the original have been made during the production of this hack. It took quite a while to complete, but the result was well worth the effort. All graphics of characters were done by me, bit-blade, moonchilde & revility. Bit-Blade & I also created the stage’s background graphics and Several changes involving the game’s engine were done through hexadecimal by me. Some of these changes include jumping higher & whip while walking (which is sort of a mixed blessing.), and the drop item ratio.

Several features were used in Blood Moon that were prominent in the original Castlevania, but not utilized. For example; the water’s splash effect, having to break a path through the wall to proceed, and bit-blade’s unique tile solidity glitch, and a few booby traps along the way which all make for substantially more interesting gameplay.

This is a very difficult game, for master vampire killers only. If you happened upon it by mistake, then run! far far away! wuahaha!

Level Design.....

Reviewed By: onepiecefan2007 on 13 May 2020

The basic idea of ​​this hack is brilliant, the use of game mechanics excluded from the original game is a very interesting idea and I’m happy to say that the run and hit (the most important mechanics introduced in the hack) was implemented really good. But this hack has a big problem: the level design. The first level is set into a cemetery so it’s fine, the second level is set in a cave and the background is a starry sky (this is CV or Contra?) in the third level you’re on the building’s roofs and the background is (again) a starry sky, but in this level it is fine because you are on the roof of a building during the night. Levels 4 and 5 are strange but well done. Can you imagine the background of the last level? It is (AGAIN) a starry sky… Why? This is CV not Contra! Why are there so many starry skies as a backdrop? You can notice the last problem during the final battle against Dracula, during the battle you can only see the life bar, your secondary weapons and the symbol of the hearts … but you can not see the number of the hearts, so why leave a symbol that is it useless without another symbol? My vote for this hack is 2.9 / 5


After some years I decided to replay this hack and I think I might have been too hard in my review. The problems I evidenced are still here and my opinion about the terrible level design doesn’t change, but after replaying the hack I noticed that… It’s not so bad, in reality it’s pretty decent, so I decided to increase my rating to 3/5 and to change the recommended option to yes.
