STORY It was the Middle Ages in Transyvania. One man came into possession of an evil power, and the Prince of Darkness was born. Before long, this bieng had used his newfound supernatural powers and the magic powers of his followers to spread his plague of darkness and dispair throughout the European continent. He was Count Dracula. Even the mention of the name of this Prince of Darkness was to cast fear into the hearts of the people of the land, who were powerless to do anything save voice thier concern. However, at about the same time a baby girl possesing special powers was born to a family living in a remote area of the country. "Your powers are meant for a higher purpose and not only yourself," she was often reminded as she was growing up. The plot of this girl's fate began to develop one night in her seventeenth year when she met up with the young enigmatic Alucard, who was on a journey to search for the father that had desserted him. The young girl's name was Sonia Belmont, and she was the first of the vampire hunters in the Belmont family to becone legendary. Well, this is a great game, and suffices well for any Castlevania fan. About the story, well this is the 'REAL' first Castlevania game. This is the prequel to the first ones for nintendo. I have not played the other Gameboy Castlevania games, nor do I know someone who has. But needles to say, Dracula is yet again the 'last' boss. 2.

Should be no problem for any Castlevania fan. Remember to press A + Up button to jump on rope. Other than that, no problem! Boss Battle Creature Bat What a wuss! Dodge his gay attempts to jump on you . Follow him to a corner and then wail on him! STAGE 2: This stage is somewhat easy. Parts get annoying though. But don't get frustrated. You can continue as much as you want. Boss Battle Death Dragon Another wuss. Boost to 'Burning Mode', Bombard him with whips, and...BAM! he's finished. STAGE 3: Annoying stage becuase you do alot of climbing. Watch out for the lizard climbers. Mid Boss: Flying Dragon He flies up and shoots three (easy to dodge) fireballs at you. Then starts walking. When he walks just whip him and he'll die. If you go the wrong way you'll have to fight another Mid boss of: 3 bats 2 hunchbacks 3 flying ghouls Man... The stage gets rather tricky... Boss Battle Grim Reaper He's a nasty fellow. He jumps around throwing sickles at you. Dodge them and whip when he's open. He'll die in a little bit. Dont forget to put it on 'burning mode' STAGE 4 This is a somewhat medium stage. Its not too hard. Mid boss: Medusa You might want to 'burn mode' to kill her. She is a wimp that way. The stage is smooth sailing from there. You'll eventually get to Alucard. Conversation Alucard: "Sonia! I didn't think it was true, but its you!" Sonia: "Alucard!! I could say the same, what are you doing here?" Alucard: " Listen to me, Sonia, This is no place for someone like you." Sonia: " But Alucard...." Alucard: "This problem concerns only me and my father. I've come to fight the lord of this castle. I cannot let my father, Count Dracula to get away with this. I must do this for my mother and the world she dearly loved. Please understand. I am the only one who can make amends for the sins commited by my father and there is no reason for you to get involved in this battle. Sonia, I could not bear to lose you. Now turn back!" Sonia: "Thank you, Alucard, you-you're probably right, In fact you have always made the right desicions. But I have no intentioin of going back now. Just as your father was granted strength from the evil diety to conquer the world, I have been granted strength to fight your father. I will not run away. We all decide our own fate. It was you who taught me that, Alucard. Alucard: "All right, Sonia, then show me this strength you belive so strongly in, for I too want belive. Let us test this stregth on me. Prepare yourself!" Boss Battle Alucard Despite how cool he is, he's just a wuss. Burn mode and kill his gold-bricken ass. Conversation Alucard: "Ooww! I had no idea you had become this strong." Sonia: "Oh, Alucard" Alucard: "It looks like this time I learned a lesson." Sonia: "Alucard, did you purposly..." Alucard: "No, Sonia. You have made me belive in your strength" Sonia: " Alucard, Im so sorry." Alucard: "Do not trouble yourself about it, Sonia. Now I must sleep. I fear I shall not meet you again. Farewell my beloved, my beautiful vampire slayer." Sonia: "Alucard!! I will never forget you. Farwell dear Alucard." STAGE 5-1 Is it just me, or does this stage get really hard. Boss Battle Jumping Lioness 'Burn mode' and kill him. STAGE 5-2 This stage is pretty easy considering how short it is. You should have no problem getting to Dracula. When you get there, there is a convo. Conversation Dracula: "You have done well my girl. In fact you are the first human to come this far. You have my praise." Sonia: " You are the Prince of Darkness. Because of you many people have died, many people have suffered." Dracula: "Oh no, my dear. I have nearly done what you humanswished for. Fufilling your insatiable desires." Sonia: " People must fufill thier dreams with thier own power. You have been consumed by the power of evil. You no longer have the strength to determine your own fate." Dracula: " Silence! On the contrary, I am just the one to use this power, and I will be king who rules over the entire world! Give yourself to me young lady. There may be merit in having your presence." Sonia: "My strength will be used only to protect the entire world! Lord of dark prepare to suffer with trifiling with so many lives!" Dracula: "As you wish, girl! Then it is your fate to kneel before my power!'' Boss Battle Count Dracula He's one tough customer. "Burn mode" and beat him in his first mode. Converstation Dracula: "Well, well.. You are worthy of me. You have lasted me longer than most!" Sonia: "Prepare yourself!" Dracula: " I've just been toying with you so far. But now its time to get serious.' Boss Battle Count Dracula Watch out now! Use the ice soul weapon to get your health back when you low. Be careful. He' very difficult. This is as far as I'm going in the stage walkthrough. Basically you beat him and you see the ending. And I don't want to spoil it for anyone. E-mail me if you'd like to know it and can't beat it. 6.CHARACTERS Sonia Belmont - This young lady was the first of the Belmont family to leave her name to posterity as a vampire hunter.
