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

Yes i killed Rin And her annoying trash can thingy and shizunes stupid paper airplanes! also this is amazing beyond a fangame. you can tell who everyone is and their disability is used in combat against you nice!

Positives: Good selection of sprites, nicely mixed and edited mostly from RoB and SotN; it's easy to identify which enemy from CV they originally were, but their KS "skins" are sufficiently edited to add a personality of their own. Nice selection of music tracks, too. This combined makes for an interesting ambience.

Negatives: Terrible, sluggish controls. Very limited selection of moves. Poor, unoptimized hitboxes and collision detection. Plenty of torches out of the player's reach. Other than giving funny comments and "advices", the "save statues" don't have any point at all.


Da miniurl is deaddd

Can you believe I still haven't beaten this game on normal mode, even tough I know the passwords... What is this.. Dark Souls platformer?

Castlevania is about moving slowly and strategically thinking about what weapons to use. If players were to rush through things they'd get hit.
