"Christopher must have been cursed by Dracula to have the stamina of an 80 year old man."
Castlevania was released to huge success on the NES, it was one of Konamiís most popular games of all time and spawned a myriad of sequels that continue to be made to this day so it only made sense to create a Castlevania game for Nintendoís widely popular Game Boy handheld.
Konami was smart in the sense that they made an original adventure featuring Christopher Belmont instead of Simon this time around. The game has four stages and then a showdown with Dracula of course. So how does the game turn out on the pocket sized portable? To be honest, some good but mostly bad, read on to see what makes the game suffer such a mortal blow as the first Castlevania game on the system.
There are several differences here from the NES counterpart. To start, your whip is upgradeable but can be downgraded each time youíre hit by an enemy and there arenít any stairways in the game, instead Christopher climbs ropes to reach high up platforms or floors.
