The uh... soundtrack, has been changed for something less sensitive. Konami didn't like me using their songs.

Good lord, this game is just... BAD. It's a blatant parody of Castlevania games, which isn't a bad thing, but what IS bad is the controls. They're just terrible, unplayable, and laggy to boot. The Down+Jump slide is absolutely USELESS, it doesn't deal damage, and doesn't seem to do anything outside of get the player hurt. If you plan on copying a game nearly to the point of copy-pasting the sprites atleast bring the good things about the game.

what browser are you using? The game should be a lot more bearable if you aren't playing on 10 fps. Gimme your specs and I'll improve the experience next time. You obviously cared enough to review, sorry for driving you mad.

Yay, a sequel. -Plays a ton- GFSAGHASROFEF IT'S HARDDDDDD. But that's to be expected, good job, this one's a lot more polished and smooth compared to the last, and I had a lot more fun even at the frustrating parts.

This was funny as hell! I always wondered what will happen to Kenji once he snaps. Although, if memory serves me right, he was kinda blind?

Great parody crossbreed of KS and Castlevania. First time playing it through yesterday, I died many times but refused to give up until I beat it all the way through. Iwanako annihilated me 10 times in a row and I decided to give up, since I didn't know the password to reach her and I start stage 2 from beginning. Then I got a good night's rest, and beat her on the first try on the toughest difficulty '-' Then that awkward pause when I realized what just happened. I absolutely refused to kill Hanako, she's my fave, enjoyed killing Mishas though, hate her. Gameplay 10/10, Enemy A.I. 9.75/10, Sprites 9.5/10 (Did you try too hard to make Misha look more realistic?). Replayable: Yes. An amazing game overall! Great coding!
