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

Rated 5 / 5 stars

this was the greatest surprise I've ever experienced on this site. i was honeslty expecting some hastily slapped together slide of references from the original game, and then just the sex scenes, but i was pleasantly surprised to find that this is not only a game that can stand on its own, but will entertain me for hours.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

only 4.5 / 5 because of 1 massive massive bug! On the second boss fight against the girl in the snow, when she starts casting her time freeze spell and you move off the screen she waits till you enter the screen again, when you see her again she instantly casts the spell, throws 2 postcards, teleports and never appears again. This messed up my Kenji Must Die Runthrough : / Now I am watching a frozen screen while watching this! Besides that this game is AMAZING!

Characters seem to be misplaced when fps is low.
This might have to do with newground's flashy layout combined with the gradient graphics whored within the game. I'm not sure how to fix this, but a few people have been reporting the same problem, I'll think of something.

Meanwhile, if you want to play it without lag and with full graphics, try downloading the swf file and play it on desktop.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Although this isn't my type of game (never got into Castlevania), I have to give you props for doing this. The concept of this game is absolutely hilarious, and you executed it perfectly. *slow clap*

muahahaha, beat it on hardest mode, the trick is don't die and keep enough heart to spam love letter (meaning you can never defeat her if you just use password...). I love Castlevania very much, thank for making this game :) (but let the last boss spam chrono clock like is too cheap....)
