In the peaceful country of Transylvania, there is a legend of an evil castle and its master, the Prince of Darkness, Dracula. Once every hundred years, the powers of good mysteriously weaken, and evil attempts to resurrect Dracula. It's up to the Belmont clan to take up the eternal fight against the vampire. Players take on the role of Simon Belmont, armed with the legendary whip, Vampire Killer, to defeat Dracula and his evil minions.

Luckily, Simon has many additional weapons at his disposal, including axes, holy water, crosses, knives and even a magical stopwatch that can stop the flow of time for a spell. Simon must travel through 11 stages, beginning in the countryside, to reach Dracula's Castle, all the while overcoming perilous traps and hideous monsters. Only the power of the Belmonts can quell the looming darkness.

Super Castlevania IV (Snes)

The game is a remake from the original Castlevania on the Nes but its not the same game, not even close. They have changed the story a little in the manual there are new levels new enemies new music (except for a few excellent remixed songs) The story is simple, Dracula resurrects, flies of to the castle and is up to no good and its your job to stop him.
GO! Simon!

+ Graphics
+ Sound/Music
+ Control
+ Password (so you don't have to play the whole game at once)
+/- Bosses (not to hard but maybe to easy)
- That the game had to end

Its a true classic that everyone has to play at least once in their lifetime
