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

Very good!

I can't say that I agree with your assertion that your choreography "blows". Considering the very limited nature of Castlevania sprites, your choreography was excellent!

You know what? Considering that so many talented new sprite artists are now springing up these days, I think we might just be seeing the beginning of a new golden age in sprite fighting!

A Proxicide-inspired second Renaissance, perhaps?

Thank you matey - I never deny that the only reason I made this was due to the MKvSF series and while I admit I'll never be that good at animation, I really wanted to finish this to say I made one (And didn't just post on X,Y,Z's recently uploaded animated sprite fight to say "Omg noes, the one I wanted to win didn't win" or "Make so and so fight so and so!") so at least now I can proudly say I made a fight I, myself, wanted to see and can consider other projects and it's thanks to people like you and Prox (Yes, you may have noticed I'm one of those awaiting your Exiles episodes) that inspired me to do it, so thank you right back :)

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 :)

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 ;)
