Like, finally, after all these years. I didn't know until maybe a year ago (I think from an Erin Plays video, lol) that Sypha's route is basically easy mode, and that the route I usually take with Grant was making the game longer and more difficult. Doy.

It's a little ridiculous considering I've looped Chronicles original mode several times and got a high score over a million, but whatever; I guess I still think Castlevania III is harder, depending on the route.

Just glad to finally beat it, since I've had the cartridge since I was 13.

Nice dude.
I still haven't beat it because of that goddamned Dracula checkpoint. I always play it in one sitting and I'm always fuckin tired by the time I've reached the final stage.

That was my other problem: I rarely used passwords. For a game like this, you kinda need to, but I kept trying to play it like any other Castlevania start to finish. It's a little too long for that, and it's kind of a kick to the groin that when you die fighting Dracula, you don't start at his stairs.

That's what always fucks me up the most. I always come to Dracula with half my health at best, and I could never really figure out how to beat him because I rarely get further than phase 1. I've only got to his final phase like 5 times.

I don't know if Castlevania 3 is actualy the hardest when it comes to actual challenge, I feel like it's more of an endurance test in a way. But then again I never came too far in Alucard route so I might be wrong.

Color me interested. I haven't played any NES in a while, I'll start on the final level and see if I can beat Drac that way.

Btw anyone else bummed that Trevor can't change direction while crouching. As someone who plays more of Cv1 that really fucks me sometimes :(

Congratz on beating CV3! It's one of the hardest games in the old series, right along-side The Castlevania Adventure (f@#k that game!!).

I've done multiple play-throughs of CV3 and have managed to beat the game with all three helpers. But I think the hardest mode to play is when you've got only yourself and no helper. I had managed to do that and it wasn't easy. The final stage before Dracula's stage is always a bane no-matter who I have with me >:(

In terms of a long play-through CV3 isn't too bad. Sure it has 15-plus stages but they are divided up via multiple paths, so you can never truly play through all the stages in one sitting. SCV4 as far as I can tell has the longest play-through. That game is eleven stages total and no branching pathways. But it's SCV4 so I don't mind at all.

I'm definitely curious as to how the game will proceed with 'all' stages accessible. Thanks Bloo  :)

Nice. I know what you mean about Sypha's route; that's the least frustrating one for me. When I first started playing the game, I'd always choose the Alucard route. Never again, lol.

Wait'll ya get to the 2nd loop and see what happens to the Medusa heads, heh.

I saw a video of the 2nd loop, and it looks punishing. The flying skulls look like a pain in the ass.

I wonder how many Konami games have increasing difficulty on additional loops? I didn't know for years that Contra increases difficulty up to Loop 7 (which is as far as I could make it before losing all my lives). The increasing difficulty is subtle, though. You don't see much of a difference until about loop 4, when you notice there are a ton more of the running enemies in some spots, and the scorpions at the end take a lot of hits to kill. Makes you feel like a frog in boiling water, lol.

I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

They are. No question. I tried a second play-through a long time ago and it was just stuuuupid  >:(  Those things have almost no pattern to them. I never got passed stage 1 without taking a hit.. or three. Never did try to get through the clock tower because that would've been the breaking point for me.

I am ashamed to say it but I have not beaten ANY of the classic formula Castlevania games. I know they are pretty hard and maybe that is why I only like to watch them being played. But I am about to embark on that journey in the near future. I will try and beat every Classic Castlevania I could get my hands on!
