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!

Best Sprite Movie I've Seen On This Site

This is quite honestly the best sprite movie I have ever seen on this site so far. Well, I've only seen sprite movies on this site, so it's really the best sprite movie I've ever seen. But is there a sequel, because the only thing I didn't like is it ended on a cliffhanger. A thing that was really good about however, was how it kept you in suspense, for example, I had no idea who was going to win. At first , I was mad because I like Alucard way better than Richter, so I was kind of getting mad that Richter was kicking Alucard's ass in the beginning, so I was really pleased when Alucard won. It's a little bit like watching a championship basketball game, they're tied and in the last few seconds, your favorite team scores and wins. That was the level of excitement I felt. I know that sounds really nerdy but it's true, lol. I think one of my favorite parts was when the smashed into the stairs and broke it, I really found it cool how it was a very subtle reference to the game and the broken stairs leading to where you fight Richter in the game. I also like how the fight ended in the same room where you fight Richter in the game, that was pretty cool.

Overall, amazing sprite movie, but, FOR GOD'S SAKE MAKE A SEQUEL. THE FATE OF HUMANITY DEPENDS ON IT!! (just kidding ;P)

Thank you - All of that was planned - I wanted it to reference the game - I'm a bit tired of sprite fights or ideas where characters are taken miles away from their environments and fight people which make no sense. This fight is here to give homage to SOTN, not branch away from it.

I'm sorry to say there is no sequel - At the time I ended on a cliff-hanger to see what the interest would be like FOR a sequel - Sadly, this movie is now almost 3 years old and I've not touched FLASH since I stopped making this movie.

You have brought honor back to your clan!

To be blunt, I hate most sprite videos. This one however, was different and it struck some chord with me. I absolutely loved this and I sincerely wish that most sprite videos were like this. MOAR PL0X!!1!!!

good but...

i would of liked it better if the locals wher at the same spots as the diealog is in sotn sine that where the battles at. good video but could of been better


RopeDrink responds:

That made absolutely no sense... If you're on about how the dialogue is used differently to the actual game then what would be fun about just making a carbon copy?
