Castlevania by DeusArtMachina Castlevania by DeusArtMachina
"I've come to put an end to this"

Bats...Candles...A full moon with a castle silhouette?! It can only be a Castlevania homage!
But what, no Belmont?! Say it aint so...
Well this is a Symphony of the Night piece so it kinda makes sense.
Symphony of the Night is without a doubt my favourite playstation game of all time. The gothic style, the numerous creatures, and the hours of playability all peppered with an amazing musical score.
I had to rent the game twice as a kid after I read in a Playstation magazine that you're not supposed to kill Richter... what a rookie... But enough talk...have at you!

If they were doing Sotn anime this would be the exact style they used just awesome

Im glad we can agree that SoTN is the best! If you think yourself as a rookie at it, let me tell ya this much, I keep dying on Minotaur and Werewolf! So really I'm more the rookie. Despite that, the game is EPIC! Thanks for posting!

I thought so! It's been a while since I played that game or seen speed runs of it on YouTube. But I remember.

I think the thing I admire about the game even though I have only attempted to play Curse of Darkness, is the Gothic Victorian like setting/art they do. I love a lot of the characters' designs and the whole mood is just oh so inviting lol. Really nice picture. ^^ I think I'll give Symphony of the Night a try. I've heard so many good things about it. ^^

Ohhhh you must play it! Along with Super Metroid it's by far the best 2D side scroller, you wont be disappointed :)

Did you ever kill Richter but still tell him that you'll see him at a party later? Because thats hurtful.

I did, but to be fair he did wait for me to be strapped in a chair, sucker punched me, and said he'd see me at that very same party...

Actually, if you replaced the vampires with Magus and made the candles have blue fire, it could be a Chrono Trigger homage. Just sayin.
