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

Awww man, the best part of this game, besides for the fact that it's like freakin Castlevania, yay!, is the beginning... I love how it smacked me in the face xD

Thank you for this awesome game, good job! xD

Goddamnit dude! I spent hours trying to kill the last boss in "Kenji Must Die", thinking that i would get a different message, since there was a different one in "Casual" and "Challenging", but noooooooooo! You get the excact same ending as if you had beaten the game on "Challenging" difficulty!
Other than that, this game is a masterpiece!

Great game, an awesome tribute to both Katawa and Castlevania.
The only reason it won't my 5 stars is because of two problems:
-The controls are sluggish and slow, making it hard to react to enemies.
-Lamposts at the beginning and some candles are nearly impossible to reach, making them useless, i didn't see the point of them being there (also, hearts are important, so not reaching them to get more hearts makes the game frustrating).

Great sound, graphics, coding; a perfect tribute to Katawa Shoujo.
But in terms of gameplay, it just feels like Mario Frustration. Everything's designed to trick you into getting hit, and I don't think there's a strategy alive that can beat Iwanako.

Way too hard. I love the graphics and sound - it's a hilarious parody of Katawa Shoujo, and the Castlevania spin only serves to make it funnier. The biggest problem is just the way the controls work. Kenji moves way too slowly, his attack doesn't last long enough, and most of all you have to hold down the jump button far too long to get the full height out of the jump. I wasn't able to get past the first boss' second form and I'm not really interested in trying again. I'm sick of losing repeatedly in slow motion.
