    |WELCOME|
    Hello!  My name is Brian.  I have turned a new leaf—welcome to the new 
    FAQ maker.  In the past two FAQs I have made, I found out that 
    Microsoft Word's special advantages will not work on GameFAQs.  That's 
    why Super Mario 64 FAQ looks so weird!  Anyway, I will try to make my 
    FAQs easier to read and will not post game FAQs that were made in the 
    past.  They will all be made in 1999 or at least very late 1998.  Sorry 
    this came so late, but I just rented this game, and now taken back!  I 
    found out that you have to be in Normal mode to defeat the whole game.  
    Strange.  The new versions of my last FAQs will look like this.  Whew!  
    I'll be typing for the rest of my life!  This will be known as my third 
    FAQ.

    |THE STORY|
    I have made this story in my personal view.  It is not like the same at 
    all as the instruction books nor the games view.
    
    	It's the 18th Century.  The world is peaceful.  Everyone was 
    having a great time, boys working outside and girls working outside.  
    Reinhardt Schneider and Carrie Fernandez were like that.  They weren't 
    married, but were true friends.  They were both working hard at the 
    house until Reinhardt ran out of wood.  "Drat!" shouted Reinhardt.  "I 
    ran out of wood.  I guess I'll have to head out to the woods and get 
    some more."
    	Reinhardt went inside to wash his hands from all the wood chips 
    stabbed in him from his axe.  He asked Carrie, who was washing clothes, 
    if she wanted to come with him to help, since they actually ran out of 
    wood.  She decided to go out until she was done with the clothes.  
    Reinhardt sighed and went out on the small porch.  He leaned on the 
    stairs as he saw to kids running around, playing some game of tag.  
    That reminded Reinhardt of what he did as a child.  He smiled with that 
    thought.  It was nice being a kid, but now he was a vampire hunter 
    since he was 20.  He always did hunt for vampires in his life, and 
    probably always will.  Carrie then stepped out of the house, and said 
    that she was ready.  She handed an axe to Reinhardt and then they both 
    stepped out and into the forest.  
    
    	While they were in the forest chopping wood, they heard a wind 
    noise.  Suddenly, the sky grew dark and gray.  Reinhardt and Carrie 
    looked at each other, surprised.  Then, a big clash of lighting came 
    from the sky and then it started to pour.  Just then, a pop-up of 
    Dracula came out.  The picture said: "HAHAHA!  I AM NOW FREED FROM MY 
    COFFIN AND ONCE AGAIN RULE THE WORLD.  TRY AND STOP ME, VAMPIRE 
    KILLERS, TRY AND STOP ME!  BUT OF COURSE, YOU NEVER WILL!  EVEN IF YOU 
    TRY, MY MONSTERS WILL SUCK OUT ALL YOUR BLOOD FIRST! TA TA"
    	"Oh yeah!" exclaimed Reinhardt with his fists up.  "First we'll 
    knock out all the blood that you have in your dumb weirdos!"
    	Reinhardt gave a yell.  Carrie ran to him and told him to calm 
    down, but he just shook her away. He will show Count Dracula once again 
    what he is made out of—pure human!

    |CHARACTERS & ENEMIES|
    Here is the list of all the characters and enemies that I have 
    encountered.  If there is any that I have missed, please tell me, and I 
    will give you credit if you help.  My e-mail address is at the top.
    
    Reinhardt Schneider:
    He is the male leader of the game.  He holds a whip and a sword for 
    destroying his foes.  He is very talented at using his strong whip 
    since he has encountered the King of Vampires many times.  He thinks he 
    can do this job again—but can you?
    
    Carrie Fernandez:
    She is the female leader of the game.  You may think how can she save 
    the world and defeat the Count, but she does have a talent and using 
    magic powers and martial arts.  With her, she could be helpful on your 
    way.
    
    Skull Bones:
    These are the skeletons that pop out of nowhere, and they can get 
    annoying fast!
    
    Big Skeleton:
    He's the first boss in the game.  He can be a pest if you don't know 
    how to defeat him.  To defeat him, just hit him in the stomach or the 
    rearend
    
    Massive Rocker:
    The second boss.  Just hit it with your whip/magic flare until he dies.
    
    Wolfman:
    Not a boss, but he is a strange enemy.  He's fit for a boss, though!  
    Just hit him with your whip/magic flare until he is finished.
    
    Skull Riders:
    These skeletons are the same as the Skull Bones enemies, but they now 
    ride on bikes!  Hit them until they break off the bike and it crashes.
    
    Master Skeleton:
    Third boss.  Defeat the same way you did with Big Skeleton, but expect 
    him to be a lot harder than the earlier one.
    
    Stone Dragon:
    These are just heads on sticks that blow out fire.  All you have to do 
    is hit them until they blow up.
    
    Flying Medusa:
    Destroy these with one hit of your whip/magic flare before you jump 
    onto the next platform.  These are only found in Stage 2.
    
    Batty:
    These bats are really annoying.  Shoot them/whip them down to end their 
    annoyance.
    
    Multi-Heads:
    Fourth boss.  The best weapon is to use the cross which is the Weapon 3 
    button.  You can only find this in Stage 1 so far.
    
    Demon Hounds:
    These hounds will stop at nothing to shred you apart.  They are very 
    hard to defeat, especially without the Power-Ups.
    
    Vampires:
    These guys are vampires and can turn your status to "VAMP."  Keep on 
    hitting these guys before they even get a chance to suck your blood!
    
    Vincent:
    He's a character from the Villa.  At first, he will think that you are 
    a vampire, but then after a while, he'll notice that you are a human.  
    He suggests that you should leave, but don't pay any attention to him!
    
    Ghosts:
    Ghosts pop out everywhere from the Courtyard and the Ballroom.  The 
    usually take only one hit to defeat if you have your weapon powered-up.
    
    Glass Knights:
    You'll find these at the Villa, the Castle Center, and other places.  
    They're mostly one hit each in the Villa, but two hits in the Castle 
    Center.
    
    Renon:
    He's the only demon that loves to get ahold of your gold!  He sells a 
    lot of goods, but at a stiff price!  Every time you find the Contract, 
    you'll be able to buy stuff from him.  Here is the list of stuff you 
    can buy:
    Item			Gold
    -----------------------
    Roast Chicken	5000
    Roast Beef		10000
    Healing Kit		20000
    Purifying		1000
    Cure Ampule		200
    Sun Card		2000
    Moon Card		2000
    
    Rosa:
    Rosa has a garden full of white flowers, but turns them all red because 
    she waters her flowers with human blood.  She will be a boss later in 
    the game if you are playing Reinhardt.
    
    Malus:
    A boy that is lost in the Garden Maze which is by the Villa.  You'll 
    also find him at the Castle Center, and other places.  At first, he 
    will tell you the tale of Dracula's raid.  In the end, Malus won't be 
    what you think he is.  The best thing is that the first time you'll 
    meet him, he will lead you out of the maze—only if you keep up with 
    him!
    
    Frankenstien:
    He has a chainsaw and he will chase you around the Garden Maze.  Be 
    careful because one slice of his chainsaw will really wake you up!
    
    DRACulas:
    These monsters are tranchulas, but they shoot out poison and some of 
    them may suck your blood.  It may take a while to defeat these guys.
    
    Trogs:
    These are only found in the Waterway.  They can shoot out fire and 
    poison, but they are easy to defeat if you power-up your magic.
    
    Actrise:
    Is this Carrie's mom or something?  For this gal, I am totally 
    clueless.  Or, is it Carrie's sister?
    
    Venus, Mars, and Neptune Angels:
    They are actually angel statues.  The first one you see will spread the 
    tears of blood.  The other ones, well, hold some kind of codes.  They 
    are found in the Castle Center only.
    
    Blood Brothers:
    This will take form after the tears of blood from one of the angel 
    statues.  They are very easy to defeat!
    
    Lizardman:
    A cursed being from Dracula.  He will not hurt you.  He will give you a 
    key when you first try to catch him and talk to him.
    
    Demon Bull:
    Fifth boss.  After you hit him for a while, he will lose its skin and 
    turn bony.  Becareful of his fire and ice spit.  It can hurt you bad!  
    Also becareful of his buking at you.  Just circle around him to stay 
    away from trouble.
    
    Rosa –BOSS-:
    For Reinhardt, it's the sixth boss.  She uses a fire ring and bullet 
    shots at you.  Use your axe for close encounters and the cross for 
    further encounters.
    
    Fernandez –BOSS-:
    For Carrie, it's the sixth boss.  This is Carrie's cousin, but I forgot 
    her name!  She uses very strong magic attacks, including her Triple 
    Flares.  Defeat her with all the powered-up shots you have.  If you are 
    further away, use the cross or the axe.
    
    Iceman:
    Only found in the Tower of Sorcery.  Defeat these with your magic 
    flares.
    
    Werewolf:
    One of the four bosses in the Duel Towel.  He is the seventh for 
    Reinhardt.  Continuosly use your whip at him.  He won't have a chance 
    to defeat you!
    
    Minotaur:
    One of the four bosses in the Duel Tower.  He is the eigth for 
    Reinhardt.  Again, continuosly use your whip at him, or else you your 
    cross or axe.
    
    Lizard:
    One of the four bosses in the Duel Tower.  He is the ninth for 
    Reinhardt.  Use your axe for further distance and the sword for closer 
    distance.  The whip is hard to do since the boss goes flying in all 
    directions quickly.
    
    Rockman:
    One of the four bosses in the Duel Tower.  He is the tenth for 
    Reinhardt.  Use your cross or axe to defeat this guy.  The sword or 
    whip do little damage.
    
    Actrise –BOSS-:
    From the sewers, you will now have to battle her, but she is no match 
    for you!  Watch for the crystal spikes—you will lose a lot of life if 
    you get hit by them.  The only time that she is vulnerable is to 
    shatter the blue crystals.  Becareful of Actrise's magic flares—they 
    are a lot stronger than the last battle with her.  She is the seventh 
    boss for Carrie.
    
    Death:
    The dude that took away Rosa.  After Rosa frees herself from the curse 
    of Dracula, he will come and attack you for letting her do so.  This 
    guy is very, very difficult to defeat.  Becareful of his scythe and 
    bony fish that comes.  Just keep jumping and hit him with your cross or 
    whip.  It may take a while to defeat, but it's worth it!  He is the 
    eleventh boss for Reinhardt.
    
    Renon –BOSS-:
    If you bought way too many things from Renon, you will have to fight 
    him.  He won't be very hard to defeat—just continuosly use your 
    whip/magic flares at him.
    
    Vincent –BOSS-:
    From the Villa, you will have to fight him if you have used the sun or 
    moon card at least four times.  To defeat him, use your axe or cross.  
    The whip/magic flares won't harm as much.
    
    Dracula?:
    If you have Carrie, use her magic flares (make sure they are all 
    powered-up).  If you have Reinhardt, use the cross.  You will now have 
    to travel down the crumbling stairs to exit the tower, but then you 
    have to beat…
    
    Count Malus:
    Malus now turns into a younger, but more stronger Dracula!  Only use 
    the cross for this battle—Carrie's magic flares are not as strong this 
    time.  After you beat him, you will see a false ending, and now have to 
    beat the real…
    
    Dracula:
    This is the real piece o' the cake, and boy is he hard to defeat!  
    Becareful of his firey breath and his powerful earthquakes.  The cross 
    will be only weapon to beat him.  After you drain half of his life, 
    he'll use a strong powerfire attack.  Circle around it to avoid getting 
    hit.  If you do get hit by it, you will lose all your life.  Good Luck!
    
    |ITEMS & WEAPONS|
    Here are the items and weapons that I have found in the game.  If I 
    have missed any, please e-mail me.
    
    Sun Cards:
    Turns night into sunrise (6am).
    
    Moon Cards:
    Turns day into sunset (6pm).
    
    Gold Bags:

    those items from Renon, the merchandise demon.
    
    Power-Up:
    These will power-up your whip/magic flares.  You can only use it two 
    times to get really powered-up
    
    Purifying:
    It cures disgusting vampire breath that's inside of you.  If your 
    status in "VAMP," then use one of these right away!
    
    Red Jewel:
    These are your ammo for the 3rd Hand Weapon.  (S) means a small amount 
    of red jewels which is five of them, while (L) means a large amount of 
    red jewels which is ten of them.
    
    White Jewel:
    These are your save points.  Note that you must have a Controller Pak 
    inserted in the controller or you can't save at all.
    
    Roast Chicken:
    Gobling these down will retreive your life meter by 50%.
    
    Roast Beef:
    Gobling these down will retreive your life meter by 80%.
    
    Cure Ampules:
    It cures poison.  If your status says "POISON," then use one of these 
    right away!
    
    Healing Kit:
    This kit will retreive all your life and will cure your status back to 
    "NORMAL."  It is really expensive if you are buying it at Renon's 
    store.
    
    Contract:
    Pick up these to go to Renon's Store.  The list of the stuff that you 
    can buy and the price is located in the "Characters & Enemies" section.
    
    Magic Nitro and Mandragora:
    Mix these two together by a cracked wall and they will go KABOOM!  
    These are only at the Castle Center.
    
    Keys:
    Here is the list of all the keys in the game:
    -Tower Key
    -Storeroom Key
    -Archives Key
    -Garden Key
    -Copper Door Key
    -Torture Key
    -Science Keys (4)
    -Execution Key
    -Tower Keys (3)
    
    Whip (Reinhardt):
    Reinhardt has one of the best and most popular whip that is found in 
    all the Castlevania games.  Before playing Carrie, make sure to 
    practice the first few levels with Reinhardt and the whip.
    
    Magic Flares (Carrie):
    These are pretty neat since they lock-on to enemies.  The bad thing 
    about these is that you have to charge each shot to get as powerful as 
    the whip.  If you can take patience and handle her well, you'll do just 
    fine!
    
    Sword (Reinhardt):
    Press C-left to use this weapon.  It is very useful for those close 
    encounters with the enemies.
    
    Rings (Carrie):
    It's as strong as the sword, and is used the same way as it.  It just 
    that you do a martial arts attack with them.
    
    Knife		Red Jewels: 1
    This will be the first alternate weapon you'll get.  Not strong, but if 
    you use enough of these, it could just beat a boss!
    
    Axe		Red Jewels: 2
    A lot stronger than the knife, this could kill a boss 10 times faster, 
    but takes one more jewel than the knife.
    
    Holy Water	Red Jewels: 3
    This is for destroying those enemies all around you.  It cannot defeat 
    a boss.  It will not harm you, but it can destroy an enemy right away!
    
    Cross		Red Jewels: 5
    Strongest weapon there is, but it takes a lot of jewels.  Crosses will 
    be used as a boomberang and could kill a boss in four hits and could 
    kill a couple enemies in one it.  You won't get your red jewels back if 
    you catch it.
    
    |WALKTHROUGH|
    Welcome to the Walkthrough!  Next will be a list of where Reinhardt and 
    Carrie will go, since they go through totally different routes!  Well, 
    some of them go to the same level, though.  Then, I'll post all the 
    levels in the game.  Hopefully you can understand what I type!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
       FOREST OF SILENCE
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Once you start, you'll see a starting cinema sceen.  After the cinema 
    sceen, walk a couple feet and you'll find that the big storm will cause 
    two trees to be knocked over by the lightning.  Jump over them and get 
    the treasures, which contain Roast Beef, Knife, and a Red Jewel.  Get 
    them by pressing C-right.  Follow the gravel road until you get into a 
    cinema sceen with skeletons popping out of the ground.  Defeat them 
    afterwards and then go to the gate.  Destroy the block that is holding 
    it and the gate will open to your first boss, Big Skeleton.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: BIG SKELETON				Difficulty: Easy
    							Rewards: None
    {Defeating Method}
    To defeat this skeleton, hit him in the stomach until you go under his 
    legs, then hit him in the rear end.
    {Warnings}
    Whenever you go under his legs, make sure that he won't be moving, 
    because if he does, you will trampled over.  He also uses that bat in 
    his hand for pounding out skeletons.  Make sure he doesn't pound you 
    with it!
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After defeating the boss, he will fall down the gorge and two pedestals 
    will pop up.  Jump those and then turn a little towards the left.  
    Follow that route to find a White Jewel which are the save points.  
    Note that you must have a Controller Pak in the controller or you 
    cannot save.  Now, turn back, head straight, then at the pedestals, 
    turn left and continue on the path until you find two gazebos.  In one 
    of them, it contains a Moon Card, while the other one contains a Sun 
    Card.  Now, go on top of the gazebos.  The first one will have a Red 
    Jewel while the next one has Roast Chicken.  Now, jump off of the 
    gazebo and then continue forward until you find two pedestals.  Jump on 
    them and then you will find a switch.  Nab the money bag and then hit 
    the switch.  The gate will open while your second boss comes out.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: MASSIVE ROCKER				Difficulty: Easy
    							Rewards: Power-Up
    {Defeating Method}
    To defeat the dude, just hit him with your whip/magic flares until he 
    dies.  You can also use the knife, but it does less damage than Weapon 
    1.
    {Warnings}
    Becareful that he doesn't pound you!  It can really hurt.  He also does 
    a rag doll throw and pounds you do the ground that does even more 
    damage.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After you defeat the boss, go back to the first pedestals you went on.  
    Now, turn right and go to the save point.  Save your game and then 
    you'll find out that the gate is open.  Go across the gate and then 
    you'll see mausoleums and the torch on a statue.  Destroy the torch to 
    get an item or weapon (like always—well, sometimes).  You will find the 
    strongest 3rd Hand Weapon—the cross.  Now, go into the mausoleums and 
    destroy the coffins to receive prizes in most of them, such as a rd 
    jewel, a power-up, and a money bag.  After you get them, you'll find a 
    save point.  Save your game and then turn around.  Go left and then 
    you'll find two pedestals.  Cross them and then hit the switch.  Make 
    sure to get the roast beef that is behind you.  But after you hit the 
    switch, the pedestals will go down.  Now, you will have to go down and 
    then up on those white platforms.  Then, go back to the recent save 
    point that you saved at.  Save your game and then go through the gates 
    that are now open.  After you cross the gates, you will meet a 
    werewolf.  Defeat him by repeatedly using the whip/magic flares until 
    he dies.  From the statue's description plate, turn around and then go 
    forward.  Cross the pedestal and then turn left.  While your going on 
    the route, you'll find another werewolf.  Defeat it and then you'll 
    find yourself by a cliff.  Go down the white platforms and then you'll 
    find a switch.  Hit the switch, go up the white platforms, cross the 
    pedestal, and then go forward from the statue's description plate.  You 
    will now have to hit the switch.  After you do, the roast beef.  After 
    you nab it, cross the pedestal and then turn right.  You will see that 
    the boss gate is open.  Go through it and then you will battle your 
    real boss, Master Skeleton.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: MASTER SKELETON				Difficulty: Normal
    							Rewards: None
    {Defeating Method}
    This boss is exactly like the earlier skeleton, except that you will 
    have to fight the Skull Riders first.  Then, once you defeat them, 
    defeat the skeleton the same way you did with the earlier one, but it 
    will take trifle longer.
    {Warnings} 
    Expect the same warnings as the earlier skeleton, but he will hurt you 
    more than before, but not much more.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After you defeat the boss, you will get into a cinema sceen showing 
    that the boss's body parts will be falling everywhere and the castle 
    drawbridge is lowering.  You will cross it and then a gate will close, 
    making that you cannot enter the Forest of Silence again.  Now, you 
    will be at…
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    				      CASTLE WALL
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    First, save your game at the White Jewel.  No, enter the door with the 
    guy picture above it.  Then, you'll have to go up the tower going in 
    circles.  Climb up it until you reach the top.  Make sure you watch out 
    for the Falling Blades, the Stone Dragons, and the Flying Medusas.  
    Make sure to defeat the Medusas before jumping to a platform.  Remember 
    that if you fall down, you will die.  After you reach the top, defeat 
    the three bats and then enter the door.  You will see your first boss 
    of the level, Multi-Head.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: MULTI-HEAD					Difficulty: Normal
    							Rewards: Plenty
    {Defeating Method}
    The best way to defeat this boss is by using the cross.  If you do it 
    that way, you'll hit all the heads at once!  After you defeat the 
    bosses, you'll get so many rewards from each of them, I don't know all 
    of them.  I think there is one red jewel, three money bags (of each 
    kind), and one or two Power-Ups.
    {Warnings}
    Their icy breath can really hurt you if you don't watch out.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After you defeat them, hit the switch, and then you will go into a 
    cinema sceen with Dracula talking to you.  Afterwards, jump over the 
    window (I think that's what you do) and then you should see a Save 
    Point.  Save your game there.  Now, you will find Stone Dragons and 
    Skeletons popping out everywhere.  Search around until you find a black 
    hole in the ground.  Don't be afraid to go down in it!  Once you go 
    down it, you see that the first gate is open.  Look around the room 
    until you find the Tower Key.  Nab it and then enter the door that goes 
    to the other tower (it is the door with the girl picture on top of it).  
    This tower is just a little bit more tricker and a lot more dangerous!  
    It has all those other same things as the other tower, but now it has 
    platforms that have spikes on the bottom of them and they turn around 
    so they can hurt you!  After you pass this tower, you will have to hit 
    another switch.  After you do, you will find out that this room is just 
    the same as the other one in the other tower!  Well, make sure your 
    time is at nigh to open the seal of the door.  There is also a roast 
    beef hidden around in a torch!  Find your way out like you did before 
    and then you will find out that the second gate is opened.  Enter it to 
    reach the next level which is the…
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    					   VILLA
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Considered one of the longest levels in the game!  Have decided to put 
    this in parts.
    [PART I: THE COURTYARD]
    Once you begin the level, you will have to attack two demon dogs.  
    After you defeat them, a gate door will open.  Enter it and then you 
    will be attacked by these hounds once again!  After you defeat these, 
    another gate will open, letting you enter the courtyard.  You will find 
    a fountain with a lot of goodies at the top, such as two money bags, a 
    sun and moon card, and a purifying crystal.  After you get the items, 
    save at the Save Point.  Then, get the roast beef at the top-left and 
    the power-up at the bottom-right.  Then, enter the villa.
    [PART II: THE VILLA]
    Enter the villa.  Once you have entered, destroy all the candleabras on 
    the first floor.  Once you are, you will meet a vampire.  Defeat him 
    and he will turn into a bat.  Now, hit him to get some goodies!  After 
    he flies away, go up the staircase and then turn left at the top.  
    Enter the door.  Now cross the balcony and go through the garden room.  
    Now go up the stairs.  At the top, turn right to choose between the 
    knife and the axe.  Choose the axe and then turn around.  Go forward 
    until you find the first door.  Enter the room.  Now, go to the other 
    door and open it.  Once you open it, another vampire hunter, named 
    Vincent, will come out and show a cross to you, thinking that you are a 
    vampire.  Once you reason with him that you are not a vampire, he'll 
    put the cross away and tell you to leave the castle.  Ignore him and 
    then leave the room.  Continue down the hallway until you meet the 
    second room.  It's a locked door that says "Storeroom" on it.  Go 
    through the third or fourth door to enter the ballroom.  Destroy the 
    two pots.  One contains roast chicken while the other holds the 
    Storeroom Key.  Once you have it, go back to the door that says 
    "Storeroom."  Enter the door and you will find roast chicken, roast 
    beef, and a Save Point.  Save your game and then enter the ballroom 
    once again.  Defeat the ghosts and enter the gold doors.  Go down or 
    jump down the stairs.  You will meet Renon, a demon.  But, he is not 
    here to fight you.  He is here to sell you stuff.  After he is done 
    talking, pick up the contract to buy the things that are in it.  If you 
    are in Easy Mode, make sure to buy 10 sets of everything, while if you 
    are in Normal Mode, buy as much as you can!
    ITEM			PRICE
    Roast Chicken	05000
    Roast Beef		10000
    Healing Kit		20000
    Purifying		01000
    Cure Ampule		00200
    Sun Card		02000
    Moon Card		02000
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After you buy your stuff, go back up the stairs.  Get out of the 
    ballroom and then turn left and enter the fifth and final door.  Go to 
    the mirror and then you will find a villager—or is it?  No, it's the 
    vampire you had to beat earlier.  Defeat it and finish it off for good!  
    Now, you might have seen a garden room earlier.  Go back to it when the 
    time is daylight.  You will meet a girl that is under a vampire curse.  
    Her name is Rosa.  She has a garden of white roses, but waters them 
    with blood, and that's why they're red.  She tells you to leave 
    immediatley, but you won't.  After she is done talking, she'll tell you 
    that you'll regret and will disappear into thin air.  Now, go back to 
    Vincent.  He will give you the key to the Archives.  Go back to the 
    room with the big mirror.  You will find another door there that says 
    "Archives."  Enter the room.  Get the holy water and the key to the 
    Garden Maze.  Now, go to the Storeroom and save your game.  Go back to 
    where you have met Renon.  Enter the doors and you will be once again 
    outside.  Use the key to enter the maze.
    [PART III: GARDEN MAZE]
    Once you are in the maze, turn left at the first turn and go forward 
    all the way until you cross an arch.  Once you do, you will go into a 
    cinema sceen, meeting Malus.  He will tell you a sad tale, and then two 
    hounds will pop out.  Malus will cry "Help me!" and then run away.  You 
    will meet your first boss: Frankenstien and the Hounds.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: FRANKENSTIEN & THE HOUNDS		Difficulty: Normal
    							Rewards: Red Jewels
    {Defeating Method}
    You cannot defeat these bosses.  Just follow Malus out of the maze, and 
    when they come close, swipe them with your sword/rings.  Whenever you 
    make the hounds faint, you will receive red jewels.  You will get 
    nothing if you knock out Frankenstien.
    {Warnings}
    Watch out for Frankenstien's chainsaw.  It can hurt and put down your 
    life meter very quickly.  Also becareful of the hounds biting you.  Not 
    only they bite you and lose life, but if you don't escape, Frankenstien 
    will hit you with the chainsaw.  Prevent that by hitting the hounds 
    with your sword/rings.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    Here's the route that Malus goes from the first door you enter: left, 
    right, right, left, left, right, right, left, right, left, right, 
    right, left, right, left, left, right.  If this route is wrong, please 
    e-mail me the right one.  Otherwise, at the end enter the door.  You 
    will get into a cinema sceen showing Malus leaving the Garden Maze.  
    Now for you, turn around and go forward.  On the long route, you'll 
    find the Copper Key.  Grab it and then enter the door to the villa.  
    Get the roast chicken and then save at the Save Point.  Enter the door 
    and you'll be at the main floor of the villa.  Now, get ready to travel 
    back into the Garden Maze!  But this time, you won't have to go through 
    the maze.  Once you enter, just go forward until you meet stairs.  
    Then, go right until you meet the Copper Door.  Open it.  Go through 
    the water until you meet a bridge.  Go on it and go through the left 
    door.  You will find a purifying crystal and a Save Point.  Get the 
    crystal and save your game.  Enter the door to your final boss.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: VAMPIRE FAMILY				Difficulty: Normal
    							Rewards: None
    {Defeating Method}
    You will have to battle two vampires: A man and a woman vampire.  Just 
    use the axe or cross repeatedly to defeat them.
    {Warnings}
    Whenever they suck your blood, your status may turn to "VAMP."  Cure 
    that by using one of those purifying crystals.  They may also poison 
    you and your status will turn to "POISON."  Use a cure ampule to cure 
    that!
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After they are dead, you will find a hidden path in the coffin.  If you 
    are Reinhardt, you will be heading to the Tunnel while if you are 
    Carrie, you will be heading to the Waterway.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    					  TUNNEL
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is Stage 4 if you are Reinhardt.  Reinhardt can only enter this 
    level.  Follow the route to the blades.  Jump or run under them to 
    refrain from getting hit by them.  God, this level is very confusing to 
    talk about, and there are no bosses.  From the first blade place, go 
    forward.  At the "fork in the road," go left until you reach a door 
    with a moon seal on it.  If it is nighttime, go inside it.  You will 
    find a knife and a contract.  Open the contract to buy stuff from Renon 
    if you need to.  After you are done, go out and go forward until you 
    reach a sort-of bridge.  Cross it and then follow the route.  When you 
    reach a turn, don't turn yet.  Go forward until you reach a door with a 
    sun seal on it.  If it is daylight, go inside.  You will find a cross, 
    roast beef, and roast chicken.  Now leave and then turn right once you 
    find the first turn.  Get the power-up, cross the blades, and save your 
    game.  Now continue forward until you find a red gondola.  Ride on it 
    until you meet a platform that you can jump on (it has a sign that says 
    to wait for a blue gondola and it has a money bag).  Wait until you see 
    the blue gondola.  Jump over the pushing hook and then jump on the blue 
    gondola.  Ride it until you reach its end.  Jump off it and then you 
    will be at the bottom floor of the tunnels!  Now, you have a choice to 
    make: Exit or explore the tunnels that are filled with treasure.  The 
    treasure includes holy water, two sun cards, six red jewels, a 
    contract, an axe, roast chicken, moon card, and a cross.  Now, if it is 
    daylight, go through the first sun door you see and exit.  Or, you can 
    explore, but I won't talk about that!  It's your choice—make it good.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    					 WATERWAY
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is Stage 4 if you are Carrie.  Only Carrie can enter this level.  
    When you enter, you will already be in trouble.  You might fall into a 
    trap door if you don't be careful.  Jump over them utnil you reach a 
    big pond of poisonus water and a Save Point to the right.  Save your 
    game and then you will be attacked by Trogs.  These will try to push 
    you in the poisonus water.  Just turn around and go forward until the 
    first turn.  Turn and then when you reach the wall, you will have a 
    choice to go left or right.  First go left and hit the switch, then go 
    right.  Now, jump over the waterfall and then you find that you have to 
    jump on the platforms.  Get the roast chicken and then cross the 
    platforms until you reach stairs.  Go up it and then jump right and hit 
    the switch.  Now, it's time to save once again.  Go down the stairs and 
    then go ?, ?, ?, ?.  Go up the stairs and then get the power-up and 
    then save.  Now go back into the room where you found the second 
    switch.  Enter the door and then cross the platforms. Go down the 
    stairs and go left until the first turn.  Turn there and then go on the 
    platforms that are to the left until you reach your final switch.  Now, 
    you can cross the platforms and follow the way to exit, or else you can 
    follow the route before the platforms and buy stuff from the contract.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    				     CASTLE CENTER
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Both Reinhardt and Carrie will be in this stage.  This is also a long 
    and confusing level if you don't know what you are doing.  When you 
    start, you will meet Skull Riders.  Destroy them.  Now, enter the door 
    to the right.  You will meet a vampire family, including a maid, a 
    husband, and a wife.  Defeat them and then go up the stairs.  Now, 
    continue until you meet a statue.  You will be in a cinema sceen 
    showing the angel crying out the tears of blood.  After the statue is 
    done crying, a bloodish enemy will come out.  Defeat it and then go up 
    the next stairs.  Now, don't go through the right door yet—go through 
    the door the is forward.  Enter the door and then go around getting the 
    moon card, sun card, roast chicken, and axe.  Then, enter the door and 
    grab the roast beef and the red jewel.  Go up the stairs.   Then, go up 
    the stairs once again, save your game, and then enter the door.  Get 
    the two red jewels and enter the door.  Now watch out for those things 
    that breathe out fire.  Go forward all the way to get the roast 
    chicken, and then turn around and enter the door you saw earlier.  You 
    will have to chase Lizardman.  Once you get close to him, press the A 
    button and then he will give you the key to the Torture Chamber.  Now 
    get the Magic Nitro in the next room.  You can run with this, but if 
    you make uneasy balance (like jumping or getting hit by an enemy) then 
    the game's over.  Now, save your game by the crate and exit the room.  
    Make it safely through Lizardman's room and then you will see a cracked 
    wall to the left.  Put the Magic Nitro there.  But it won't blow up.  
    Now what?  Ahh, you need Mandragora!  Now, head back to the beginning.  
    Save your game there and then go straight all the way to the Torture 
    Chamber room.  Defeat the vampires and then get the Mandragora from the 
    bookshelf.  Now head back to the cracked wall.  Put the Mandragora down 
    by the Magic Nitro and watch it explode!  Now, enter the hole in the 
    wall.  Get the roast beef in the room and then go into the next room.  
    That holds once another contract.  Why are there so many contracts?  
    Well, if you need anything in it, buy stuff in it.  Otherwise, enter 
    the next door and you will find the Neptune Angel.  Next, go up the 
    bookcases and then go up those two riding platforms until you reach the 
    place where you can erase the Great Seal in the battle arena.  The 
    combination to brake it is: 2, 4, 8.  After the Great Seal is gone, you 
    will see a big crack in the wall.  Now you have to fetch the Magical 
    Nitro and Mandragora once again.  But now, go back to where you had to 
    chose between the right and forward door.  Choose the right door this 
    time and then cross the gears and do all that stuff until you reach 
    stairs.  Go up them and then make your way through until you find the 
    room with again more Magical Nitro.  Grab one.  Now it follows the same 
    rules as before.  Cross the falling spikes, defeat the door guards that 
    now turn alive, pass the dining room, pass the guard with the big axe, 
    and go down the stairs.  Oh no!  Now you have to pass this level 
    without falling.  Go forward and down the stairs.  Carefully cross the 
    very skinny platform and then cross the "bridge."  Now, follow the 
    route to the gears.  Now, wait until there is a gap in the gears.  Now, 
    go in it and try to stay in the middle as best as you can.  If you hit 
    one of the moving part of the gears, than the story's over.  Remember, 
    you can't make uneven balance happen.  Switching from the first gear to 
    second is VERY difficult.  You have to stay in the small space and then 
    at the end, run out of it and go up the small stairs and then enter the 
    door.  Follow the route all the way to the arena.  Don't worry about 
    the room of the vampires.  They shouldn't be there.  Anyway, after you 
    enter the next door, destroy the two Skull Riders before they hit you.  
    Now turn right and enter the Bull's Arena.  Put the Magic Nitro down by 
    the crack.  Now, get the Mandragora from the very same spot you got it 
    from, and then put it by the Magic Nitro in the arena.  Now, watch the 
    wall explode and then you will find the Magic Crystal.  Activate it by 
    touching the crystal.  Now, go to the contract if you need to buy 
    stuff.  Otherwise, go to the Save Point.  Make sure you have at least 5 
    roast chicken and 3 roast beefs because now the dead bull will turn 
    into a living nightmare!  Here's your first long-time boss.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: DEMON BULL					Difficulty: Normal
    							Reward: Roast Beef
    {Defeating Method}
    Just hit it anywhere in the body.  Eventually he will lose its skin.  
    It will then turn bony and then it will get weak and easier to defeat.  
    The cross is best used for long range.
    {Warnings}
    It's icy breath and fire blasts don't help much, as it could put your 
    life down by half.  Becareful as it runs to you because it will buck at 
    you and then use a fire attack.  When you are close to him, he will use 
    his icy breath so whenever you are behind or by the side of him, hit 
    him with your whip/magic flare.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After you defet the boss, you can now escape on the elevator.  Save 
    your game once again and then exit the arena.  Defeat the Skull Riders 
    and enter the room where you found the vampire family.  Instead, it 
    will turn into a cinema sceen.  This will differ by your character.
    [Reinhardt]
    If you are Reinhardt, you will meet Rosa.  You will now have to battle 
    her after the cinema sceen.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: ROSA						Difficulty: Normal
    							Reward: Nothing
    {Defeating Method}
    The cross does not work as fast as the axe does.  If you have the axe, 
    get a full amount and keep on hitting her with it.  It really "kills" 
    her!
    {Warnings}
    Becareful of the fire balls and the firequake that she makes.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After you defeat her, Death will take her away.
    [Carrie]
    If you are Carrie, you will meet Carrie's cousin.  You will now have to 
    battle her after the cinema sceen.
    _______________________________________________________________________
    BOSS: FERNANDEZ					Difficulty: Normal
    							Reward: Nothing
    {Defeating Method}
    Defeat the same way as you would with Rosa.
    {Warnings}
    Becareful of her magic flares.  They hurt as bad as Carrie's magic 
    flares!
    _______________________________________________________________________
    After you defeat her, she will leave.
    Once you defeat either boss depending on who you are, go up the stairs 
    and look for an orange switch.  Press C-left on it and it will open up 
    the elevator.  Go into it and now you will be in another level!
    
    Sorry, but I haven't gotten further than this.  I only rented this game 
    for seven days.  I played it on "Easy Mode" and once I got here, I 
    couldn't go on.  I started to play on "Normal Mode" in the last two 
    days, but I only made it to the Villa.  Once I rent it again, I will 
    finish it in my next version.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
    
    |FAQ|
    All the "Frequently Asked Questions" that I have found over the 
    Internet.
    
    Q. I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND MY WAY OUT OF THE FOREST OF SILENCE.  I NEED 
    HELP!
    A. Well, you can look at my Walkthrough.  If that is confusing, I 
    suggest that you look at the map in Nintendo Power (Jan 99_Vol_116) or 
    else go on the Internet and try to find a map.
    
    Q. WHERE IS THE ARCHIVES KEY IN THE VILLA?
    A. Get it from Vincent.
    
    Q. IN THE FOREST OF SILENCE, IS THERE A REASON WHY THAT STATUE IS 
    ALWAYS FACING YOU?
    A. It's all a matter of polygon vs. pixles.  Konami probably tried to 
    fix that problem, but couldn't.  There is no reason at all—that's not 
    why.  THERE IS NO SECRET ABOUT IT!!
    
    Q. IN THE GARDEN MAZE, EVERY TIME I FOLLOW MALUS, I GET LOST.  HELP!
    A. Look in my directions that Malus goes in the Walkthrough section.
    
    Q. THERE IS A DOOR THAT IS NAMED "STOREROOM" THAT I CANNOT ENTER IN.  
    IS THERE A KEY TO IT?  IF SO, CAN YOU TELL ME WHERE IT IS?
    A. Yes, there is a key.  You will find it in the ballroom.  Between the 
    sofas, you will find vases.  To break them, just crouch down and use 
    your whip/magic flare.  One of those hold a Storeroom Key.  In the 
    Storeroom, there is a roast chicken, roast beef, and a save point.
    
    Q. WHENEVER I PLAY REINHARDT, I GET LOST IN THE TUNNEL, AND WHEN I PLAY 
    CARRIE, I GET LOST IN THE WATERWAY.  I NEED TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF HELP!
    A. Look in my Walkthrough section.  Hopefully you find it in there.
    
    Q. HOW COME YOU PUT ?S IN YOUR DIRECTIONS FOR MALUS?  DID YOU FORGET TO 
    PUT THEM IN OR DO YOU NEED THE DIRECTIONS?
    A. I got many questions from this.  You see, I transferred the 
    directions in real directions, like I put two hyphens and one of those 
    sided triangles on the keyboard.  This caused some problems, but oh 
    well.  I transferred them back to words.
    
    Well, there is not many FAQs that I have found, but I need help from 
    you!  If you find any FAQs, I will put it on here, and I will give you 
    credit.
    
    |SECRETS|
    Here are the secrets that I have collected over the Internet.  Don't 
    worry—the places that I have found these will get credit.
    
    CARRIE'S NEW COSTUME—SPECIAL #2
    At the very top of the Tower of Sorcery, just before the exit, look 
    around and you will see a torch on a floating platform.  Now, how do 
    you get it?  Make sure you have the holy water and throw it toward it.  
    You will see the path to it.  Destroy the torch and then you will find 
    Secret 2, the purple crystal.  You will receive Carrie's secret outfit 
    once you beat the game on NORMAL mode.
    
    POT O' GOLD
    In the Castle Center, defeat the Big Bull.  Then, go back to where you 
    found the big crystal and then you will find a crate to the left.  
    Whack it until you get 2000G.  Save and repeat until you have as many 
    as you want.
    
    BEEF—IT'S WHAT'S FOR DINNER
    Press C-right whenever you are next to a statue.  You might find beef, 
    chicken, or a red jewel.
    
    REINHARDT'S SECRET COSTUME—SPECIAL #2
    You don't need the Execution Key to get this.  Instead, find a Skull 
    Cannon and the ledge behind it that has an Iron Maiden.  Now use the 
    hidden ledges to pull yourself up to the crystal.
    
    HARD DIFFICULTY
    You won't be able to have Hard Difficulty right away, but here's how to 
    get it.  Go to the Forest of Silence and get it on a floating platform.  
    That is Secret #1.  Now, beat the game in NORMAL mode.  After the 
    credits, save your game and select a new, previously unaccessible Hard 
    Difficulty.
    
    HEALING KIT BEFORE DRACULA
    Before you enter Dracula's Lair, you will go through three towers.  At 
    the final tower, jump onto either of the two torches and go around the 
    ledge on the other side.  There you fill find a breakable torch with a 
    red jewel and a platform that is floating.  You can walk to the 
    platform on this air by walking straight toward it from the torch with 
    the red jewel.  On the platform you will find a healing kit.
    
    These are all the secrets that I thought were sort of neat.  I will 
    find more on the Internet some time, but until then, adios from this 
    for now.
