  • Hard Mode

    Much like other Castlevania games, you can keep on playing with harder difficulties after the credits roll. Once 'The End' appears on the screen, press the A button to play through the game again with damage from creatures increased twofold. This will continue to increase with each subsequent loop through the four stages. - Stage 5 to 8: Enemy damage x2 - Stage 9 to 12: Enemy damage x4 - Stage 13 to 16: Enemy damage x8 - Stage 17 to 20: Enemy damage x16 (Instant Death) Clearing Stage 20 will not increase the difficulty any further. However, your score and the Stage number will still increase.

Area/Level Hints

  • Secret Room In Stage 1

    You must climb the ropes to get through the level. The second to last rope, on the right hand side of the screen, leads to a platform with a tree stump and two graves with crosses visible. If you climb up this rope, you can continue through the brick wall at the top. This leads to a hidden room with four power-ups.

  • Secret Room In Stage 2

    In the second part of the stage, where you have to choose between between ropes, go right and then left. You will enter a room where you go down stairs and giant eyeballs speed towards you. Kill an eyeball while it's on the middle step. Once done, a hole will open up. Climb down it for power-ups.
