Copyright O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O | 1 - Introduction | O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O Hello and welcome to my Master of Darkness guide, this guide will help you get Dr. Social trough the dark streets of London. Even though you'll probable have the feeling that you're sometimes playing Castlevania game thanks to all the similarities like the secundary weapons, the locations and the health and boss bar that got ripped of castlevania. Even the theme is almost the same, still that all doesn't make this a bad game, the gameplay is good and the soundtrack is ok, if you feel like playing a short game on a sunday morning than you can't go wrong with this one. O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O | 2 - Controls | O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O 1/start - This makes Dr. Social attack with his primary weapon, press up and 1 to use your secundary weapon. 2 - Use this button to jump. Start - Pause/unpause the game. D-pad - Lets Dr. Social move. O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O | 3 - Items | O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O Healthpotions: These potions give back a lot of your health, mostly found in walls but also in masks. Small diamonds: Pick these up for some extra points. Big diamonds: The big diamonds clear the whole screen of enemies. O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O | 4 - Weapons | O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O Primary weapons --------------- Knife: The weapon you start with, weak and it has short range, try to get a better weapon quick. Sword: A bit stronger than the knive and has a bigger range. Hammer: A bit stronger than the sword and has around the same range. Axe: The strongest weapon in the game but also has the weakest range, still the power of the axe is enough to pick it above the other weapons. Secundary weapons ----------------- Gun: The weakest secundary weapon in the game, it's very slow and doesn't do much damage, if you can't get any better than take this one. Bomb: One of the strongest weapons in the game, recommended for bosses and for enemies that fly/walk above you, the downside is that you throw it in a angle above you so it's sometimes hard to hit enemies. Boomerang: The boomerang is a little bit stronger and faster than the gun, you'll trhow it like a regular boomerang so if it doesn't hit anything than it'll come back. Stake: You'll find the first stakes in the fourth level, it's a very strong weapon that will kill all the enemies that it hits and will prove useful in many occations including the last boss. O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O | 5 - Walkthrough | O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O ----------------------------------------------- At that time in London, the rising of the full moon meant the coming of yet another gruesome murder. The following morning would always bring the discovery of yet another body...completely drained of blood. Dr.Social knew tha there was something supernatural at the heart of the mystery, and began investigating. Calling in the powers of the board, Social learned that at the thames river. Horrible events beyond human imagination were taking place. ----------------------------------------------- +---------------------+ |Round 1: Thames River| +---------------------+ After the intro you'll find yourself at the beginning of the level, start making your way to the right and use the steps to go up, the bat hanging above you will attack you by flying down, avoid him and go further to the right. There you'll see a mask hanging in the air, these masks contain power ups that you can collect by opening them up. Open up the mask by hitting it with your knife and get the powerful hammer that falls out of it. After picking up the hammer use it to quickly kill the guy that's coming towards you with a shift single blow. Just like in Castlevania there are hidden items stuck in walls that you can get by breaking them open, if you already need some energy than jump down and get on the boat, get off the boat once it's on other side and break open the wall for some health. Now go to the right where you can take the upper or the lower path, taking the lower path will get you a secondary weapon (gun), but the gun isn't really a useful or powerful weapon, so it's better to take the upper path because the mask hanging there contains a big diamond that will get rid of the all the enemies on the screen including the three bats hanging a bit further (be careful of the dog though). After that jump down the first gap and open the wall on the left, there's a axe hidden in there and despite is short reach it's the strongest weapon you can get in the game, so I'll recommend trying to hold on to it as long as you can. If you need some energy than go up the stairs, kill the two guys and open up the mask for a bottle, after that go down and open the mask for some points if you want, avoid the bats and than exit. Now you'll have to make your way up a bit, there are two guys in the room which you should be able to take down with ease, there's also a mask containing a small diamond that will give some points. When you enter the next screen a bat will come flying down almost immediately, try to avoid him and make your way up a bit, kill the guy standing on the platform and get the gun from the mask if you want it. Move to the right onto the bridge and a dog will be running at you, quickly duck and kill it with your primary weapon. After that kill the other guy and get the diamond from the mask, now move up the stairs and open up another mask for some points, than get rid of the dog down below and get some health out of the wall on the left. Go down the stairs to the screen below and than quickly kill the thug, kill the other guy walking around beneath him and than get the gun from the mask if you want it, now use the boat and get off of it on the right and exit. Make your way down the steps and get the bomb from the mask, the bomb is a lot stronger than the gun but it's also a bit harder to hit an enemy with it, still that shouldn't keep you from taking this weapon over the gun. The second mask contains a small diamond so break that one if you want some extra points, after that kill or avoid the dog by jumping over it and get on the boat to exit the first part. +--------+ |Part 1-2| +--------+ When the second part starts a boat will bring you back to dry land, watch out that you don't fall off into the water. Now that you're back on dry land you'll be greeted by slow moving zombies that are coming out of the water, they can't do anything more than just walking straight at you so they're not hard to take down. If you need a new weapon than open up the mask that is hanging above the platform, it contains a sword that's about as strong as the hammer but weaker than the axe, still if you want length over power than you should go for this one. Now jump on the boat and let it take you to the right, there's a bomb in the mask on the platform in the middle, get it if you need it and than quickly go back on the boat and onto dry land. Once you've gotten off the boat again you can go two ways, take the upper path because that will give you a few power ups and you'll have less change of falling into the water. First get rid of the dog and than open the mask for a sword, after that jump over to the other platform and get the health from the mask, than kill the zombie that comes running at you and move further to the right. Don't open up the next mask you come across because it contains a knife and you will probable already have something better. Now kill the zombie and the dog and open the mask if you need the gun, than go to the wall and break it open for some health, after that go back, go down and kill the zombie. Now make your way onto the boat again and jump off when you reach the other side, go up the stairs and jump to the platform where the zombie is walking around, kill him and open the mask for a bomb. After that make your way up and you'll see two bats hanging under the stairs, lure them to you and than kill them or avoid them, then get the sword from the mask on the left if you need it. You'll also notice that there is a mask hanging above the gap, because you'll only fall down into the screen below, you can just open the mask by jumping towards it and opening it for the extra life that it contains. After making your way up again kill the pesky bats again and go up the stairs, stop somewhere in the middle and wait until the zombie is at the other side of the platform, than jump on the platform and kill him, take the stairs up towards the new screen and kill the other zombie. Now open the mask for some health and go to the left, take the stairs again and kill the very quick zombie (if you have the bomb than it's easier to kill him with that). Ignore the mask that contains a knife and go up again, now you'll come out on the streets again, get rid of the zombie coming towards you and open the mask for a bomb. When you're on the bridge kill the zombie and open the mask for a small diamond, after you've done that a dog will come running up from behind you,avoid him and exit the level. +--------+ |Part 1-3| +--------+ Kill the guy coming towards you and get of the steps, now it gets a little bit tricky, kill the guy in front of you and than quickly turn around to kill the dog (or avoid it by jumping over him), than if you're fast also enough kill the flying woman. Replace whatever weapon you have with the axe sitting inside the mask (if you don't already have the axe of course). Now walk forwards while killing all the enemies and ignore the mask hanging there, at the end, get the bombs and go down the stairs. Be a bit careful at this part, there are lots of gaps here and if an enemy hits you when you stand on a wrong spot than it'll cost you a life. Anyways, after getting rid of the enemies go down and open the mask if you still need an axe and than go to the right, bombs are very handy at this part because a lot of enemies will be walking on a platform above you so use the weapon wisely. Now make your way to the right while jumping over the gaps and ignore the mask in the middle containing a knife, at the end open the wall and get the extra life. Than make your way to the left again over the platforms and get the extra energy from the mask, Once your done with that exit out of this part by using the stairs. Kill the woman that'll com floating down and get the boomerang if you want, it's a bit less powerful than the bomb but it has a bigger range. After that march of to the right into the next screen where you can open up the mask for some extra energy. The guy walking above you will probably fall down, kill him and go up the stairs, also get rid of the dog and get the diamond for some extra points. In the next screen take the lower path if you still need some energy (it's stuck in the wall), than make your way to the exit upstairs while ignoring the mask. +---------------+ |Jack the Ripper| +---------------+ Traditionally, the first boss isn't too hard especially if you still have a lot of bombs, if you do than stand in the left corner and keep throwing them, the boss won't be able to hit you so it will be a piece of cake to kill him. Without the bombs this battle is pretty easy as well, stand on the left side next to the second platform, from there he can only hit you when he's standing on the edge of the platform, when he does that just plain duck and attack him when he doesn't stand on the edge of the platform. ------------------------------------------------ Heh, heh, heh... so you managed to defeat my Jack the Ripper. That's right, all that has happened here has been under my control. And the things you've seen so far are just the start of the horrors... Heh, heh, heh... Go to the House of Wax... If you dare! My waxwork figures will be waiting for you! Perhaps you will be my next wax masterpiece. I need a replacement for Jack the Ripper, after all! ----------------------------------------------- +---------------------------+ |Round 2: House of wax dolls| +---------------------------+ You won't be finding Paris Hilton in here luckily, however the female dolls on the background will come to life when you're passing them, jumping over them is the best way to take care of them. On your way to the right you'll come across a mask containing a hammer, if you still have the axe then I recommend keeping that one, walk further and watch out for the wax dolls hanging above you. Open the mask next to the stairs if you want some extra points and go up to the next screen. When you reach the next screen just stand still and kill the two guys coming at you, the two bats will come down from both sides but will go passed you,once they're gone take the sword from the mask if you need it. Now make your way a bit to the right and get rid of the bats first, kill the two guys with bombs if you have them and then open the mask for some extra points, after that jump over to the other side, smash open the wall for some health and than go down to exit this part. Once you enter the room the wall on the left will close and you're trapped, on the platform above you there are wax dolls being spawned and you must kill them all for the room to open up again. After killing around six of them the floor will start to crumble, stand in the middle by the firehouse and you'll land the best way. Quickly get rid of the annoying bats and the two thugs walking around right and left, after you've killed them stand in the right or left corner and let the women come to you. Keep standing in the right corner after you've killed them so that you'll land on a platform with a mask on it, the mask contains a hammer, get it if you need it. You'll also see a mask on the left side hanging above a gap and surrounded by three bats, the mask contains an boomerang but you don't really need it, but if you do want it than lure the bats away and kill them before getting the boomerang, also on the right is a wall containing some health. Once you've went down the stairs kill of all the bats and than go down some more, now open up the wall on the left and get the bomb that is hidden inside the wall, the bomb is a good weapon here as well with all the bats and the guys walking on platforms above you. Now start making your way to the right again while being careful that the bats won't throw you into the gaps, open the mask for a diamond and get it to kill of all the remaining enemies. Now you can choose to exit on the right or to open up the mask in the beginning of this screen for an extra life, you have to jump at the very last moment to get on the platforms though so it's probable going to take a couple of tries. +--------+ |Part 2-2| +--------+ Start this part by standing still and wait for the floating woman to come at you, once she's near you kill her and make your way to the right over the platforms. Move a bit faster over the small platforms where the bats are hanging underneath because they'll fall down, when you're back on land kill the bats and open the mask for the sword if you need it, the mask below you contains a diamond, get it if you want some extra points. In the next part you'll be attacked by all sorts of furniture, candlesticks, chairs, tables, paintings you name it. So be a bit careful, you should get rid of the knives first because they are fast and small and can deal a lot of damage. When you enter the next screen you'll be attacked by a knife, destroy it and go up the stairs, the mask on the left contains a boomerang and the one on the right contains a bomb, get the bomb and go to the right. Ignore the enemies and quickly open up the mask for the big diamond to get rid of all the enemies on the screen. With that out of the way move to the right to exit, now you're back into a room which will only open when you've killed off all the enemies, after getting rid off the two women, bats, painting, chair, table and candleholder the wall will open again and you can exit this room. Kill the two bats and the woman and get the bomb from the mask, also take note of the gap on the right before going up the stairs. You can see the mask on the right, it contains an extra life but it's above the gap a screen below you, you can get it though but you'll have to move to the left after getting it pretty fast. The mask next to the platform contains another diamond for some points, move to the left and you'll be attacked by a painting and a chair, make short work of them and exit on the left. After breaking all the furniture you can move further, go up the stairs and when you reach the new screen get the big diamond to get rid of all the enemies. Get the hammer from the mask if you need it and then exit part 2. +--------+ |Part 2-3| +--------+ There are lots in here, use the bombs to get rid of the knives and than use your normal weapon to get rid of the guy and the candleholder, after that open up the mask for an axe, the boss is almost there and you'll need something strong. Now make your way to the right through all the enemies and you'll reach something that looks like a dead end, don't worry though, you can just jump down to reach the next screen. You'll also notice that there are two masks hanging in the air before you, the one on the right contains health and the one on the left contains a diamond for some extra points. The one with the health is hard to get because there is a gap right beneath you, but if you move to the left fast enough after getting the health than you should be fine. Get the bombs on the left and ignore the mask floating above the gap, that one only has a gun. After that start moving to the right while killing of all the enemies (watch out for the two guys jumping up on you on the second roof), than open up the last mask and get the health and than exit the screen It's time to go up again, first like always get rid of all the enemies and than open up the mask for some more bombs, now make your way up to the next screen. Use some of your bombs to kill of all the enemies and than stand on the second platform on the left, jump toward the mask and open it, get the extra life and quickly go back onto the platform. Lastly open the mask on the right for some health and than exit on the right, one more part to go before you get to the boss, lots of enemies in here, quickly make your way forward and open the mask for a big diamond. Ignore the last mask, kill the floating woman and than exit. +------------+ |Flying Skull| +------------+ The skull moves so randomly that it's hard to make a certain strategy, it will start spinning around the room and sometimes it will vanish back into the woman, if you still have the bombs than use them, but if you don't than it doesn't matter much, just walk a bit up to him and attack when you can, you probable have enough energy to outlive him anyway. ---------------------------------------------------- "...The cemetery east of town..." After defeating the evil spirits the psychic girl managed to gasp a warning before falling into unconsciousness. Jack the Ripper was collecting bodies and fresh blood, to be spilled as sacrificial offerings to dark forces. "...The cemetery east of town..." There was no way to know what the message was warning him about... But Dr.Social had to act quickly, so he rushed there as fast as he could. ---------------------------------------------------- +----------------+ |Round 3: Epitaph| +----------------+ The moving furniture has made way for the dead zombies again which will pop up all over the graveyard, just kill them quickly with your normal weapon and move to the right. You'll also come across two masks, the first one contains a diamond and the second one contains a hammer. When you reach the castle go in and kill the bats, in the wall on the right is a gun but I recommend keeping the bomb. Now go up the stairs and ignore the mask containing another gun, instead open the mask on the left for a bomb. As you make your way of the steps a dog will attack you from behind, quickly turn around and kill it, the mask in the right corner contains some health if you need it and there's also another gun in the wall on the right. On the next screen kill of all the enemies above you with bombs and go up the stairs, do the same thing on the next screen and than go up one more time. After getting rid of the bats hack open the wall on the right and go in, hold down right when you're falling down so that you don't fall into the spikes. Now kill of all the enemies, climb up the stairs and open the mask for a bomb. You'll also notice the unreachable mask in the upper right corner, open it with a bomb and get the extra life by jumping through the platform. Now move to the right again, ignore the two masks who only contain a gun and a diamond and break through the wall to exit this part. +--------+ |Part 3-2| +--------+ Make your way up the steps and kill the skeleton and the bat, inside the mask is a hammer, get it if you need it and then get rid of the floating woman, the mask in the corner gives you a health potion, you probable don't need it but if you do than get it. Now go back to the left and kill the bat and the skeleton, than go down the stairs to the next screen. When you enter the next screen quickly get of the stairs, turn around and kill the floating woman, some more enemies will come at you, dispose of them all and then get the axe from the mask. Ignore the mask on the left which only has a diamond and make your way to the right. The mask in the right corner has some health in it, get it if you need it, after that make your way up to the next screen and quickly kill the skeleton. Kill the skeleton above you with a bomb and than go up the stairs, the mask contains a boomerang, keep the bomb if you have that and exit on the right. Ignore the mask (it only has a diamond) and make your way up, now you'll be able to choose to go to the right or to go upstairs, go to the right because it's a bit easier and you can also get some energy from over there. The first mask that crosses your path contains a diamond for some extra points, so ignore it if you don't want extra points and make your way trough an army of bats and floating women. When you reach the end of the platform go down and go to theleft, kill the bat and the woman and jump over the gap, the mask contains a diamond but the the health in the wall is probable what you really need, so hack it open and get it. When you reach the next screen you'll be attacked immediately by two bats and a floating woman, to avoid getting hit, quickly walk to the right and turn around, then kill the bat before he hits you. Now go left and try to make your way up, ignore the boomerang and than when you're on the upper platforms make your way back to the right again and exit. +--------+ |Part 3-3| +--------+ Slay the skeleton that is coming at you and jump down onto the first small platform, kill the guy in the blue costume and than open up the mask on the left if you need a sword. Than make your way to the right, jump from small platform to small platform and try to avoid the spikes, the bats can be a pain here so try to get rid of them quickly. Ignore the mask in the end because it only contains a small diamond and than move further to the next screen. Start by opening up the mask above you with a bomb and get the bomb by jumping through the platform, after that jump onto the clock and let it take you to the other side, there jump to the right over the spikes and get the extra life from the mask. After that go up and make your way to the mask, now stand on the platform next to the mask and open it to get some health. After that take the middle path and go down the stairs if you need some more energy. In the next room is another clock, use it to get on the platform and than jump onto it again to reach the stairs. Climb up the stairs to the next screen, kill the bats and get the bomb from the mask, now to go back you'll have to go down the lower screen first, when you get back up kill the enemies again and than move up. Go to the right and stand on the platform, now use the clock again to get over the spikes and open the mask if you don't have the axe. After that you'll reach the roof again, get rid of the blue guy and bat and ignore the two masks on the ground because they only have a knife and a gun, instead go up and get the health above the platform, to reach the boss go forward and follow the blue guys. +------------+ |Count Massen| +------------+ Count Massen will start to spin around the clock after he's done talking, meanwhile he'll shoot three fireballs at you and after a while he'll start spinning faster and faster. Once again bombs seem to be the best way to take care of him, if you throw them towards the gap he'll probable spin right into them and when he goes faster the bigger the change is that you'll hit him. ---------------------------------------------- The strangely familiar figure who was floating in mid-air was Count Massen! There had been rumors about the count, who lives in an old castle far from civilization. It was said that he was studying the black arts. Yes, it seemed that the count was indeed involved in strange doings. "...Black Magic... ...Full Moon... ...Killer...?" Finally understanding the evil power behind the events, Dr.Social hurried to the castle. ----------------------------------------------- +-------------------+ |Round 4: Laboratory| +-------------------+ As the level starts you can see a dog a bit ahead of you, once you've come close enough to him he'll come running your way, because you don't want to get rabies, quickly duck and kill him. You'll also see a bird above you, it's one of the new enemies and it can be very annoying, the bird will swoop down every once in a while to attack you and it's very fast so you'll have to be very fast as well to kill it, if you have the bomb than you'll be able to take it down from the sky. Once you gotten rid of him and the bat open the mask for a sword but I'd recommend keeping the axe if you have that though. After that jump over the two gaps with spikes and get rid of more birds, the mask contains a boomerang, get it if you want and than move along. After some more birds you'll come across a mask containing a knife, as always ignore it and get rid of the dog. The last mask is surrounded by enemies but it's worth getting it because it contains a health potion. Now make you're way down and slaughter all the dogs and bats, than get the small diamond from the mask if you want and go down. There's a hidden potion in the wall on the left, get it if you still need it and than make your way to the right. There's a stake hidden in the wall above you, it's the most powerful weapon in the game and I recommend keeping it. Now go down, here be careful that the bats don't push you into the gap and get another health potion from the wall on the left. Than make your way to the right and be careful that you don't get pushed into the gap by the dog or bats, go up the stairs while ignoring the mask, there's an extra life in the wall on the left. Make short work of all the enemies and than go up again. Walk to the right over the third set of rocks and open the mask for some health which you probable don't need because you're already at the exit, but anyway hack away the wall and exit this part. +--------+ |Part 4-2| +--------+ The mask above you only contains a gun so you can ignore it but the mask before you contains an axe, get that if you have a weaker weapon than the axe and make your way up. The floating women are back again as well, just one blow with your hammer will kill them so they shouldn't cause too much of a problem. The mask in the corner only contains a hammer so you can skip it (watch out for the chair though). After that make your way up, once you reach the next screen quickly open up the mask and get the big diamond to destroy all the enemies. The wall totally on the right next to the table contains a hidden health potion, get it and make your up through all the enemies. The mask on the right contains a gun and the one on the left contains a bomb. When you reach the next part the wall will close again, unlike the last rooms in the first levels this time you only have to kill one enemy to advance, most of the enemies you'll have to kill will be at the other side of the room so this is extremely easy when you have the stake. In the first room you have to kill the woman standing on the right. After you've killed her take the stairs that just appeared up and than quickly open the mask for a diamond to get rid of the two floating women and the two knives. Now walk to the right and get rid of the tons of bats and exit. To get out of this room you'll have to destroy the painting that's stuck inside the wall on the right, if you have the stake than kill him easily with that weapon, if you don't than you'll have to work away the wall on right of him and them destroy it. After you've destroyed it and the wall is open again move up the stairs and go to the left, now you'll be attacked by a lot of enemies that have been respawned , quickly open up the mask for some health and make your way up. Here, kill all the bats and destroy the chair, there's an bomb in the mask on the left, I recommend keeping the stakes though if you still have some. Now move further, kill all the floating women and get the health potion from the mask, after that you'll enter another room for the last time in which you have to destroy something to go further. This time it's the candleholder sitting in the middle of the room, take it out with your stake or destroy it by taking away the wall on the right first. +--------+ |Part 4-3| +--------+ Make your way of the steps slowly and kill all the bats that attack you, kill the zombie as well and than open up the mask for a sword, if you already have an axe than leave it there and go up the stairs. The mask in the air contains a stake which you can defenitly use so get it and go forward to the right and exit this part. Go down and ignore the mask on the left because it only has a boomerang, now jump over the spikes and kill the zombie and bat. When you enter the next screen you'll see some electric bubbles floating around in a circle, they can't hurt you so you don't have to worry about that. Ignore the two masks containing boomerangs and exit on the left. If you need some health than open up the mask on the upper left, off course you'll need to go trough some waxdolls and a zombie first. The mask on the ground contains a sword so just ignore it and than go down the stairs. A whole three zombies and three dolls await you in the next room, take them out one by one and take the health potion from the wall on the right, than go down further. Here, you'll come across the electric bubbles again, wait until they start moving to the right and than stand on them to use them to reach the platform on the right, the mask only contains a diamond anyway so you don't need it. Not much to do here so get rid of some enemies and than exit using the stairs on the ground, go down the very long stairs and kill the two zombies when you come down. As you might have noticed, there was an unreachable mask in the room above , you can enter it by jumping trough the platforms on the left, the mask contains an extra life. Now make your way trough one more room with lots of dolls and open the mask on the left for a stake, open the mask in the middle for some health and ignore the one on the right that contains a knife and than exit on the right. +------------+ |Count Massen| +------------+ This time count Massen will appear on random places and will shoot a blast that will break up into smaller parts, the small parts will fly everywhere across the room and are pretty hard to avoid. Don't waste your stakes on him though but use your normal weapon, walk around in the middle, than wait until he respawnes and hit him two times, than get away from him and try to avoid the bolts, keep doing this until you've killed him. ---------------------------------------------- A strange white light came from Count Massen's fingertip, and the next thing Dr.Social knew was that he was imprisoned inside a dark cage. Dr.Social threw himself against the door in desperation. Again and again he tried, until the door gave way. But now he found himself in the middle of a labyrinth of incredible complexity. -------------------------------------------- +-------------------------------+ |Round 5: In the wake of Dracula| +-------------------------------+ Destroy the skeleton and than crawl out of the cage, now go up the stairs and open up the mask for an axe and go further to the right. Get of the platform and go down next to the spikes, now open the mask for some extra stakes. Than go down the stairs to the next screen and get rid of the skeleton and bat, than go a bit to the right and hack open a brick in the middle of the screen for some health if you need it. Than go further, kill the blue guy and go down the stairs again, make your way to the left side of the screen and than go down some more. Here, kill the blue guy and open up the mask for a stake but watch out that you don't fall into the gap or spikes. Open the next mask hanging next to the spikes for some more stakes and ignore the mask on the ground, than open the mask in the corner for even more stakes and break away the bricks in the corner on the left. Now jump down the hole while holding down right, this way you'll land on ground on the right so that you won't be falling down over and over. If you still need an extra life than open the mask hanging on the left, than get rid of the last enemies and open up one more mask for some health, ignore the last mask because it contains a knife and exit on the right for the last battle. +------------------+ |Count Massen pt. 1| +------------------+ This is where your stakes will come in handy, watch out for the spears that are coming trough the floor and the blue ball that is circeling around the screen. Now attack the count by standing on the platforms and try to get high enough to get on his level, than throw your stakes at him until he gives up. +------------------+ |Count Massen pt. 2| +------------------+ Move to the left of the screen, be careful for the bats and wait until the count has multiplied himself by four, now there are 3 fakes and on real and he'll start spinning to the left, because of that you'll always hit him when you toss your stakes to the right. After a while the three other will disappear and he'll start shooting purple flames at you that'll bounce off on the floor, try to hit him when he's near while avoiding the flames. If you still haven't killed him after that he'll let some bats form a shield around him, just quickly get rid of them and then attack him until he dies and you've completed Castlev.. eerrr Master of Darkness, Congrats. --------------------------------------------- With the rising sun, the darkness began to change to light. Social reached the top of a small ridge and stopped. He looked at the outside of Castle Dracula at last. This was Transylvania, just as Count Massen had described it. The scenery was very unlike that of his native land. The rays of the sun were blocked out by a dark cloud, surely an effect of the magic spell. As the dust cleared, the once-solid castle could be seen in ruins. Social descended the mountain, and found a road leading to town. Jonathan Harker had given him directions so he could return to England safely. Thanks to Social, London was free from "The curse of the vampire," and people could at last walk at night... without fear. Now we have electric lights to help us feel safe. It seems as if the horrors of the past will finally fade away. But... We must never forget Dracula's curse cannot be lifted. Dracula may return. The full moon still troubles the human heart.... You must always be careful when walking at night when the full moon shines... ------------------------------------------- O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O | 6 - Credits | O=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=O -Sega for making this game. -Sega for making the Master System. -CJayC for gamefaqs.
