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

I love the game but it keeps glitching in one part where you exit to the next screen through the top, and once it show the next screen it doesnt show you


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Well made overall. Fun theme. Gameplay works well.

Is it normal to get damaged on contact with ennemy, when we do the slide attack? makes it completely useless. I dont mind getting delayed or slowed down as i go back up from doing one (making spamming it not an option), but getting damaged when i attack? Hell no.

And the difficulty is real high, even at the "low" settings, ennemy placement and design is just evil.

I suppose its a nice nod to the old castlevanias, never played them. And if this one is any indication, i don't have the patience to grind/fight my way through it.

All in all, good job, even if it wasnt my favorite kind of game.

sliding is meant for dodging, it's not really an attack. Use it as an evasive maneuver or something. The kicking damage is just an added bonus, you can skillfully deflect projectiles or kill off small enemies if you slide at the right moment.

Good God, I'm so happy because of this. The beginning made me a bit confused for a bit as did the title, buy holy fuck-a-mother shit mate, you totally fucked everyone's mind with this Kenji shit! XD
Unfortunately, because Castlevania AND Katawa Shoujo are so awesome the game is laggy. Not your fault bro. XD
One thing though. I'm unaware of 4 Leaf Studios having any policy on whether or not a fanfic like this can be made that uses the game's music, buttons, text, and such. I hope not for your sake. But they are an official, uh.... company/incorporation/fancy-shmancy-g roup? Lol.
