This is a rom hack I made based off of Luto Akino’s hack called CastleVania Overflow Darkness. I had his permission to do so. I pretty much re-did all the stages and their graphics. I did, however, keep most of Luto’s enemy designs and attack patterns, his cool looking Simon’s sprite, his castle introduction sequence(I did change the castle, tho) and his ending screen(Which is awesome) since these were the reasons why I wanted to do this in the first place. However, any other new graphics you’ll see were most likely done by myself.
I made it pretty hard but I think that’s mainly because I can go through the original game like a breeze. I don’t think it should be a problem to anyone who would be interested in downloading a hack of the original CastleVania in the first place anyway.
I hope everyone or anyone that will play this enjoys it, and please leave some feedback!

User Review Information
Focus in strategy and high difficultyReviewed By: HatZen08 on 11 Feb 2013
The good aspect of this hack is the artificial intelligence of enemies. They have different behaviours and must be defeated with different strategies. It forces the player to think strategically instead of the traditional hack-and-slash behaviour.
The bad aspect of this hack is the difficulty. Players without experience in Castlevania games will find this hack difficult.
This hack is interesting because of strategic elements. You must discover the correct approach to your surroundings to succeed. Otherwise, it is game over. Unlike others hacks, you must know what you are doing instead of killing everything in sight without thinking.
I don’t recommend this hack because of the high difficulty. However, players with more experience in Castlevania games may find it interesting.
