Castlevania II: Simon's Quest


#gm0033 - Released in 1987 by Konami Corporation, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest is the second one of the trio of Castlevania games made for the NES. But unlike the first Castlevania, Simon's Quest is different in that it doesn't have different levels. You traverse freely through the vast and diverse lands (graveyards, towns, swamps, forests, mansions, etc.) of Transylvania. In Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest, you again play the game as Simon Belmont. The scenario of this game is that while in the first Castlevania game you defeated Dracula, in doing so you were possessed with his evil curse. In order for you to break the curse, you have to go on a quest searching all over Transylvania for the five hidden parts of the body of Dracula and destroy them. Only then will the curse be countered where you are free from it. Thus the title, Castlevania II: Simon's quest! In some you can talk with the townsfolk and get clues or buy items in shops. The game play control is both crisp, responsive and precise. There seems no lag time at all. The graphics of the game are outstanding with an amazing level detail and proper mood setting. It was an innovation in it's day to be the first game to feature both a day and night time game exploration experience. Castlevania II: Simon's Quest is considered a classic for good reason. And the sound and music are just a few of the reasons why. They are excellent and fit the gloomy atmosphere flawlessly. Castlevania two has 3 different endings, depending upon how much time it takes you to complete the game. There should be no hesitation to add Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest to your NES collection, as it is Classic NES. In Japan for Nintendo's Famicom system this game was entitled, "Akumajou Dracula II: Noroi no Fuuin," meaning "Demon Castle: Curse of Blood."
