Graphics: The graphics in this game were okay, but there was nothing spectacular. The enemies looked pretty basic like they have been done many times before, but there were a few really cool ones in there. The Gameboy didn't justify them any, however. Backgrounds were unimpressive, as were explosions, but it wasn't too bad. Sound: The music wasn't anything spectacular. While the songs were great in setting the mood, the Gameboy just wasn't the system for them. They did pretty well in the sound effects fortunately. Gameplay: A Gameboy port of the popular NES game Castlevania. This was one of the first and most popular sidescrollers and it set the way for many others. In this version, the controls aren't quite as good and your character moves just a little bit slower, which gets annoying real quickly. The game is pretty simple. You run around and kill monsters with a whip. Break open candlesticks and you can get upgrades for your whip (like a chain whip), more life, and even points. It is fun though; just the controls are way too bad. Hardness factor: The game can get very hard because of how bad the controls are and how slow your character is. Overall: 5 out of 10. While this isn't really a bad game, I prefer the NES port.
