FANGS FOR THE MEMORIES
In the first Castlevania Adventure, the fearless vampire hunter Christopher Belmont fought toe-to-toe and whip-to-wing against the vampire king, Count Dracula. Belmont defeated the Count and destroyed his castle, but unfortunately Dracula used what remained of his magical powers to transform his body into mist, thereby making good his escape. However, his powers were so depleted that he was left unable to transform into "human" form. The count decided to wait and rebuild his dark forces. Deep inside his black heart he swore revenge on Christopher Belmont and his family.
Fifteen years later, a ceremony was held in the town of Transylvania. The son of Christopher Belmont, Soleiyu Belmont, had come of age, and it was time for the title of vampire hunter to be passed down to him. The ceremony was used to commemorate this occasion. All the citizens of Transylvania rejoiced, hoping that the father-son team of vampire hunters would bring peace to the region forever.
But on the morning after the ceremony, it was discovered that Soleiyu Belmont had vanished into thin air. The ceremony was the chance Dracula had waited for. Soleiyu received great sacred power in the ceremony to mark his adulthood, and Dracula used his last bit of magic to turn Soleiyu's powers against him, transforming him into a terrible demon. Then, aided by the Soleiyu-demon, Dracula was able to assume human form once again. That evening, to the northeast of the village, the earth shook with a thunderous roar and four ominous castles appeared. And, hidden in a lake at the center of these castles, was another castle---the new lair of Count Dracula!
Horrified to learn that his son had been altered by the forces of evil, Christopher Belmont determined to save Soleiyu and break the ambitions of the Count. He journeyed to the new castles, each ruled by a different power of darkness placed there by the Soleiyu-demon to stop anyone who would tamper with the mystic spell Dracula had cast upon him. Nevertheless, in order to save the village of Transylvania and free his son, Christopher had no choice but to go and fight once again.
--From the Gameboy Castlevania 2: Belmont's Revenge instruction manual.
Castlevania is one of the most popular games to date. The series is still alive and well on today's platforms. Castlevania II on the NES was one of the best RPG's on a video game console. I have never played a Castlevania game that I didn't enjoy.
Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge was a great addition to this long and illustrious series. The graphics looked a lot like their NES counterparts except for the fact they were black and white. The music and sounds were quite enjoyable as always with Castlevania. Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge is a must play for any Castlevania fan.
Save the village of Transylvania and your son from the evil clutches of Count Dracula.
Castlevania 2: Belmont's Revenge played much like its predecessors. The only difference I could find was that at full power your whip would shoot a fireball off the end of it, and they added the ability to climb ropes. Other than that it was pretty much the same.
