Hi everyone,

Welcome to Rhapsody of Ruin, a semi-canonical story based on the two main characters of CastleVania SOTN (PSX Version), mostly focusing on an over elaborate sprite fight as opposed to actual story telling.

I hope fans of the game enjoy this flash - It's definitely not perfect but I'm still very proud.

Thank you to any and all people who have lent this movie support over the years, it did much better than I could ever have dreamed of!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I loved it

Huge SOTN fan here, as well as RoR, and at first you had me worried when Alucard was pretty much getting his ass handed to him, but I think the video really struck a chord during the falling scene (A little DMC never hurt amiright?) The sprite-work was agressive, but not unrealistic, job well done!

RopeDrink responds:

Glad you enjoyed it, thank you :)


Rated 3 / 5 stars

not bad...

a great game used as a sprite fight, I am not really a fan of these but peroxides was outstannding, this not so much imo, i know you out a lot of work into this, but it just didn't move me, great skills, in flash though, wow, thanks for the video...

RopeDrink responds:

No problem, thanks for the review ^^

I really liked it

I hope to see more of this story. Keep it up.

RopeDrink responds:

Glad you liked it, thank you ^^
I originally had multiple-selectable (4) endings made but got so frustrated that I took the easy way out for an ending, though it's wide open for futher story, so who knows ;)

Great Job

I am a diehard Castlevania fan and Alucard is my all time fav character so of course I had to watch this lol I think you did an excellent job with this and hope you continue with similar vids. I love sprites too and this is like the best Sprite vid I have ever seen. I noticed that there was only one sound that was off during the end when the wall popped up the sound was late but It might have been intentional other than that I saw absolutely no problem.

RopeDrink responds:

Thank you for the kind review - But if you think this is the best, then you really have to see Proxicides work to appreciate great sprite fights (He inspired me to make this, thats how awesome they are).

But I'm glad CV fans are getting to see this, and seem happy so far ^^
