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!

Nice Sprite Battle

~Good~
This has had so much effort put into it. My favorite part is probably the music during the battle and the ending credits scene it's always great to here Castlevania music. The sprite choices were just great even the backgrounds with most flashes the background sprites are weak (if any) but these ones were nicely chosen. While I'm not as big of a fan for SOTN or ROR but I was a huge Castlevania fan. The sprite battle had great time the entire flash had good pace and sense of timing actually. The voice uses were nice and all the sound effects together sounded just fantastic. The plot was really interesting to read the intro and see it as it moved onward.

~Improve~
The characters talked really fast and the ending wasn't really peaceful.

~Overall~
There really isn't anything to complain about in this though keep up the amazing work this flash has a huge replay effect on us Castlevania fans.

I've watched this flasha number of times.

Ever since finding newgrounds I've watched this flash more times than I can count, I don't know about anyone else, but personally I'm hoping for a sequel, possibly Alucard thrashing his way through the countless denizens of the castle on his quest to find Richter again. Please!!!!!1

Even I still watch it numerous times out of sheer pride ;) Thanks for the rating and while there may not be a sequel, bare in mind the movie breaks the rules but always intended to stay relatively canon to the true story of CV:SOTN so bare that in mind regarding Alucard and his fate ^^

Nice, I like how most of the moves were already

in SotN. I actually played and got to the second half of the game on this new account on my ps3; which I tried to run as a pacifist. Seriously! It was fun! I just wished that you had that move where you teleport somewhere else because instead of pressing up to cast 2 huge fire balls or do nothing for 3 small fire balls, you can press down to cancel the move and turn around and use the triangle to run. I'm serious! I almost mastered all of Alucard's moves! Well, I'm nerd rambling now so good flash, make another! I liked it!


RopeDrink responds:

Glad another SOTN player enjoyed the movie - Thank you ^^
