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!

Tough & Trippy Experience!

Reviewed By: DungeonWallMeat on 27 Aug 2022

Blood Moon easily became one of my favorite graphical hacks with its otherworldly clor scheme and style, with stage 3 being my favorite stage in the hack. The stages were both familiar yet refreshing at the same time. The controls however took some time for me to adjust to, whipping while sliding wherever I was moving was a strength and a weakness on its own, encouraging aggressive gameplay while at the same time punishing impatience, at least that’s what I believe. Stage 5 was probably the roughest example of how this mechanic works against you, most of my deaths being that I fell off Death’s platform. They are a few bugs that make the hack difficult to work with, such as random clipping when jumping off certain tiles, and some portions of the hack where the HUD is not visible (Although I taken a liking to the way it worked with the final battle). Overall, real awesome hack with awesome visuals, and new mechanics that give the hack a new kind of challange.
