CastleVania Reborn

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

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!

One of the few CV hack where the enemies reason, the best thing of this hack is the A.I. of the enemies, this hack is difficult not because there are 50 bats that fly on the screen but because the enemies reason, this force you to adopt various strategy to pass the level. The design of the enemies and of Simon is beautiful, but because they were taken from another CV hack, so I don’t consider this a for or against, but the level design (that is completely original) is beautiful! The second level have a lot of doors and you must try them all to pass the level, in the third there are parts of level behind the walls and you think that you must break the wall to move on, but in reality you must go in another direction to pass the level. In my opinion the best level is the fourth because it seems an Egyptian pyramid and I love the Egypt, but this doesn’t relevant anything into a CV hack, so we can intend this level like a treasure hall in the dungeons of the palace. My vote for this hack is 4/5.
