Nice!

Completed this game last spring in my quest to beat every 2D-Castlevania (except Haunted Castle and the Nintendo DS-games).


edit: Just as a reminder for all I'll post this part of the rules FAQ you've linked, TCD:

No use of emulator save states (including as a way to practice parts of a game).

I think that's invalid since you're not game over.

oh you guys are a tough crowd.

first go at this game. Sadly i only played 2 games in the series and one was the first castlevania on the nintendo. and SOTN for XBLA.

Have to get back into the frame for these type of games. Should have clobbered that demon knight boss, but i wasnt sure if his ball would hurt me when subplanted into the ground.

Oh a couple of things to keep in mind. This game is very easy to milk, so try not to just "casually" walk your way across the level as enemies will respawn. Also try not to milk the fire on the skeleton heads. and lastly if you're going to back track after you exited a room, perhaps we should say do not hit the flames? easy way to get money bags. Thoughts?

Agreed. No score leeching. Just move forward everyone!

@TF
I will have my first go tonight, but guess it's okay as long as you don't walk back and fourth. That would be score leeching which is a big no-no

Okay, had a look and yeah standing still at the very start of the game is score leeching Since there are several spots to leech, we should all play honest and try to get through them as fast as possible
