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!

An Absolute Masterpiece

Reviewed By: VanDam on 16 Apr 2020

This is an absolute masterpiece. Definitely one of the best Castlevania hacks. It’s my personal favorite out of roughly 20 that I’ve played so far. In my opinion it is the best. It might be the hardest Castlevania hack that I’ve beaten so far but I will beat harder hacks after practicing more. It took me 6 hours to beat it the first time that I finished it. But I tried 2 times and failed to finish it and put it away and came back to it. The 5th level was hard for me but I kept at it till I got it. This game feels as much like a completely different game than the original as any that I’ve played. Everything is different. Level design is amazing and completely different. The levels and the way you go through them have changed so much that I won’t even try to describe it but I will tell you that it’s great. The 3rd level which is my favorite is a completely different and special journey with the most beautiful background and design as any levels that I have played. If you whip while walking in this hack you will slide forward which is interesting and can help or hinder your progress. Enemy’s look different and so do the bosses. This is such a great hack if you can handle the difficulty. If it is too hard at first do not give up. If you fail try again. That’s one of the great things about Castlevania is that you have infinite continues. What seems impossible may become easy with practice. You can do it. I hope you stick with it to see all the amazing things it has to offer. It had me saying wow… this is great… often. Especially on the 3rd level. Which like I said is one of the most beautiful and special Castlevania levels that I have ever played. When you get to the stairs to walk up to Dracula you will see the most amazing and beautiful sight. A red background with red crescent moons. Blood Moons! What a wonderful and enjoyable hack this was for me to play. If you do not like the harder Castlevania hacks then this might not be for you. But it is not near as hard as some that I have tried such as Metal of The Night, Legendary Hero, or Hell’s Fury. It is hard but the difficulty is well below those three in my opinion. I love Castlevania Blood Moon. This is an absolute Masterpiece.
