- Release date：Apr 30, 1987
Step into the shadows of the deadliest dwelling on earth. You've arrived at Castlevania, and you're here on business:
To destroy forever the Curse of the Evil Count.
Unfortunately, everybody's home this evening. Bats, ghosts, every kind of creature you can imagine. You'll find 'em all over the place, if they don't find you first.
Because you've got to get through six monstrous floors before you even meet up with the Master of the House. Your Magic Whip will help, and you'll probably find a weapons or two along the way.
But once you make it to the tower, you can count on a Duel to the Death. The Count has waited 100 years for a rematch. He's ready. Are you?
Enter At Your Own Risk!
If you think it’s scary on the outside, wait’ll you see the basement.
You’re in for the longest night of your life. Ghosts, goblins, demons, wolves, bats – creatures lurking around every corner. As you descend deeper and deeper, they get thicker and thicker. Better stick close to the cavern floor – it’s your only chance of finding a weapon or two. You’re gonna need ‘em.
Because when you finally meet the Count, you know he’ll be going for the jugular. So keep your courage up and your stake sharp. And say your prayers.
