Castlevania The Adventure

A Challenge you can’t walk away from!

  • Release date:Dec 6, 1989
  • Platform:GAME BOY



To confront the death defying Count, insert the cartridge into the Game Boy, and then click on the Power Switch. When KONAMI appears on the screen, press the Start Button.
Now you're in the misty midst of Dracula's less than welcoming lair. There's no place to hide. No place to run. The only direction you can go is "dead" ahead into the darkness that is Castlevania.

With the taste for sweet revenge on the tips of his fangs, the blood thirsty prince of darkness hungers for a succulent delicacy--and your throat is definitely on his menu. But before you reach this host of horrors, you must risk your neck against multitudes of unearthly evils that lurk around every corner.

All told, there are 4 levels of dark dungeons, torture chambers and vampire crypts. At the "dead" end of each, you'll find a Primary Evil who's waiting to terrorize you. Before proceeding to the next level, you must crush and demoralize (not that it has a lot of morals to speak of) this beast.

At the end of the fourth level, you'll enter the "dead" of night, where you'll come toe to toe, eyeball to eyeball with everyone's favorite blood sucker--Count Dracula. And it's here that you'll either vanquish his midnight powers forever, or be initiated into his vampire corps.

Your sole means of protection are your Mystic Whip and mindful wits, which will lead you through Drac's menacing maze. Along the way, be sure to light the candles with the tip of your whip. It's a sure fire way to unleash life sustaining items such as hearts, crystals and crosses of gold.

You'll begin your quest with three lives to spare. At 10,000 points you'll receive a bonus life. For every 20,000 points thereafter, you'll be granted another reincarnation.

Note: There's a time limit in each stage. And if you fail to destroy the Primary Evil or Count Dracula before it expires, you'll expire.


After getting his wings clipped in Castlevania and Simon’s Quest, the death defying Count has risen again.

Desiring revenge even more than blood, he’ll descend upon your Game Boy, with fangs glistening by the light of the silvery full moon.

To survive his maze of torture chambers and vampire crypts, you must unlock the castle’s secrets by location hearts, crystals and crosses. You must also possess the strength to master the Mystic Whip, which wards off unearthly evils like the She Worm.

So risk you neck and accept Drac’s challenge. Because if you fail to destroy him now, he will rule the night forever.
