This thread is making me wish there was an SMB35/Castlevania hybrid where you could grab a star (from whipping a candle, naturally) and mow down rows of Draculas others have dumped on you.

Yeah, Bloodlines' stages are perhaps the longest and most involved of the 8 or 16-bit Vanias, and it's the only one to have at least one mid-boss in every stage, but with only six of them, it does wrap up a lot quicker than the others.I beat Drac in Castlevania: Bloodlines. I often forget how short that game is compared to the other 16-bit entries.
That's the only good thing about it! Wait, no... the commercial rules pretty hard, too.I didn’t even like the music! In a Castlevania!
I've said it before, but I'll say it again: If Konami put the three ReBirths on one Switch cart, I would buy it day one.I’ve been kicking myself for not buying Adventure Rebirth for what feels like a very long time. I could easily spring for more Castlevania Collections if Konami put them out.
This may be one of the best descriptions of the game. I want to like it! The engine is just not up to the tasks they ask of it.Adventure is so close to being pretty good, at least for its time and platform, but they had to have picked one of laggy and unresponsive controls vs. extremely precise platforming challenges, not both.
You're tampering in God's domain, my friend. In your pursuit of crafting a perfect Dracula, you only increase my power. Too much of this and we may experience Point Inflation.Question for Mr. Alucard-backwards...
I spend my times at work killing a Dracula in pursuit of making The Perfect Dracula.
Do these kills count? Does me creating a Dracula mean I am stealing points?
Love me some Simon's Quest. Even the grinding is nice because you get to listen to Bloody Tears during a lot of it.For some reason I was afraid that Castlevania II was going to be a chore but so far I'm really enjoying it. Definitely easier than the first game (so far) and I'm doing a bit of grinding for hearts.
Agree with the folks saying to just skip the Thorn Whip. And yeah, Simon's Quest's difficulty comes entirely from figuring out where the fuck you're supposed to go next, not the enemies and certainly not the bosses. Like I said last spring when I last played it: good for atmosphere (also has my favorite NES Belmont sprite), but not much good for anything else, if you ask me.For some reason I was afraid that Castlevania II was going to be a chore but so far I'm really enjoying it. Definitely easier than the first game (so far) and I'm doing a bit of grinding for hearts.
Question: in one town the thorn whip is 100 hearts and the other its 150. Can I assume the price is the only difference?
Good, good.Oh, and Jedah/Dimitri are both perfectly valid Bonus Draculas, so the clearing of Vampire Saviour was worth 1 Dracula Point.
