Damn right, Vilheim wants vengeance!

Reviewed By: MekkMarcos on 22 Sep 2022

Before Mig (of “Wallachia: Reign of Dracula” fame) cobbled up the “Castlevania: The Lecarde Chronicles” duology, this early ROM hack of Simon’s Quest had writing that was proof that a fan-made Castlevania game didn’t need Dracula to tell an interesting story, even if said fan game is actually a mod for an existing installment. After all, a demon HAVING VIOLATED THE PLAYER CHARACTER’S DAUGHTER?! No doubt, ANY loving father would be pissed about that. Maybe to the point of wanting… VENGEANCE ON HELL?

Anyway, while I’m writing this review, I wish to share a discovery I recently made regarding the notorious hack-specific “staircase bug”.

Sometimes, staircases would reset the game, and sometimes, they wouldn’t. And the reason for that is as follows:

The game doesn’t reset because you’re going up and down the stairs. It resets because you’ve been PRESSING LEFT ON THE D-PAD ON THE STAIRS.

In other words, stick to Up and Down when traveling through stairs, and you should never come upon the bug.
