Happy Singles Awareness Day!

Here is a typically silly greeting card I made for the CastleVania Fandom to honor the fact that too much of our favorite action game could possibly result in less "action" outside of it.

Or something like that... :p

BIG PIMPIN' Count Dracula doesn't seem to have this problem, but don't let that stop you from shutting him up! KILL IT WITH METEOR!!!

I had no idea where this was going, but it ended up being hilarious. Honestly, the sprite work was great. They were so annoying! I'm glad I could just kill them! Usually a greeting card is very short. This might be the longest I've seen.

Well, I guess it goes on longer if you don't kill them at first. I loved all the fine details here. You just know how to create a goofy world. I should be more familiar with "Castlevania". This was just enjoyable.

How can I explain this?

Eric, as much as I liked your Castlevania III website--I thought it was mildly amusing, although I didn't really laugh--and your Parovadius series; it just wasn't funny. On the other hand, I'd rather take this over Nin10doh to the 64th Power.

Graphics: You did a great job on importing the sprites, and I really liked the use of scale tweening to simulate squash and stretch. In addition, you were smart enough NOT to save sprites as jpegs and put some thought when it came to resizing them. Plus, great job on that desolate background at the end.
Sound: This is a mixed bag here. On one hand, you did a great job when it came to the sound effects and voices. I think more people should turn to lesser-known games for sound effects. On the other, the music may be catchy; but it didn't really fit the situation. You should consider using the Audio Portal for music next time.
Content: I have to agree with Neophyte Ronin on the fact that there hasn't been any Castlevania-themed flash in years aside from one Symphony/Nocturne themed flash. (Or any Konami game outside of Metal Gear.) However, while mildly amusing, the jokes were forced and as a result; killed whatever merit this had. Then again, I can appreciate the small filesize.

The Good:
-It's been years since there was a old Castlevania flash.
-Great job on the sprites
-Nice background at the end
-Clever sound selection

The Bad:
-Forced humor
-Unfitting music

Overall: You may get upset at this, but I am going to be fair and give you a seven. Plus, I would like you to finish up Parovadius when the time comes.

Comedius - Parodius!

Well, I'm glad you decided to rear your ugly Konami-loving head. No, seriously! Great to have you back. This is definitely the kind of card I would send my girlfriend, as the first prerequisite of getting into my pants is that you must have a really evil sense of humor.

We could really use some Konami tributes around here. The sprite movies have been nothing but Mario spoofs and DBZ-inspired Sonic epics. Please shift the balance of power towards something far more evil. Thank you.

N***a WHAT?!

Damn, that is freakin hilarious, man. lmao
Somebody give this guy a round of applause, Drac is giving his ho his true power.


I was not expecting that! That was really good!
