Castlevania Retold

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

Castlevania Retold is–as the name suggest–a retelling of the original NES Castlevania. I wanted to keep the original story intact (Many of the CV games are retellings of the first one, this is no different) but offer new levels and graphics, this is just that. All the levels have the same themes to them they originally had, but with new layouts and enemy placement, I also wanted to keep the classic feel to it, which is why I used mostly graphics from CV2 and 3. There are very few custom graphics in the hack, I’m not good with graphics at all, but I did make a new title screen using the new CV logo (Which Moonchile later enhanced) and enhanced some of the orignal sprits. Any Castlevania fan will probably like this, but until recently I didn’t notice it’s one downside: It’s hard. As I made this hack I pretty much learned how everything in CV’s game engine works, the exact timing of enemies and such. So, while I can play through most of it with no problems even my friends who are good at Castlevania die several times on the first level. (Sorry about the short review, I suck at these kind of things…)

Stage 6.....

Reviewed By: onepiecefan2007 on 16 Aug 2018

This hack is pretty good, the level design isn’t beautiful but is OK, one of the things I hated is the design of enemies: for some reason almost all enemies are colored blue… Why? There are 142345657897880 colors to select and the only color used is blue? Are you kidding me? Another problem is the difficulty: the creator said that the game would be more difficult than the original but the only stage really difficult is the stage 6. Now we can move on the greatest problem of this hack: the stage 6. This stage is awful! At the start of the level you lose automatically a quarter of your life bar because an enemy spawn on you! And when you climb the ladder, there are a lot of hawks that drain your health! Fortunately at a certain point you can found an invincibility potion that helps you to pass the stage. My rating for this hack is 2.5/5 because without playing the stage 6 this hack is good, but the Stage 6 ruins everything.
