Step into the shadows of the deadliest dwelling on earth. You've arrived at Castlevania, and you're here on business: To destroy forever the Curse of the Evil Count. Unfortunately, everybody's home this evening. Bat, ghosts, every kind of creature you can imagine. You'll find 'em all over the place, if they don't find you first. Because you've got to get through six monstrous floors before you even meet up with the Master of the House. Your Magic Whip will help, and you'll probably find a weapon or two along the way. But once you make it to the tower, you can count on a Duel to the Death. The Count has waited 100 years for a rematch. He's ready. Are you? HOW TO PLAY Castlevania can be played by one player. The player must use Control (1). The object is to move through the passages and stairways of the castle to reach the tower, dodging or destroying every creature in your path. Use the control, as directed to activate your Magic Whip and the other weapons you'll find along the way. And watch for secret doors! To begin, hit the START button, and your nightmare begins. --- [PAGE 5] CONTROL FUNCTIONS [CONTROLLER DIAGRAM] CONTROL PAD (MOTION) controls forward and backward movement, standing and crouching, angle of jump, direction of attack SELECT BUTTON (not used) START BUTTON begins game, pauses action during game B BUTTON (ATTACK) controls whip and all weapons A BUTTON (JUMP) controls jumping SAMPLE MOVES TO JUMP DIAGONALLY: use "A" Button and left/right Control Pad keys.
