Whoever made this has a great future ahead of them in game design.  I love that they did this old school Castlevania without relying on recycled gameplay concepts from the older games.  Lots of great, original ideas in there.  I wouldn't mind seeing this person (or persons) get handed a budget to create a brand new CV game.

I agree-gree. Perhaps a CV Rebirth 2 would be nice. Similar graphical styles, just Rebirth is brighter... and has a few recycled stuff.

Finally got around to watching the whole walkthrough. Wow. Very impressive game design wise. It's a perfect melding of Haunted Castle, Castlevania, and Legend of Dracula with plenty tasty originality to boot. Like everyone else I have to agree that the graphics blow, but they do remind me of the old DOS era games, so that's ok. It is practically begging for a graphical upgrade, though. That part with Death screwing with you before the fight with him was awesome as well as all the neat stuff in the second part of the main hall. The root chase in the forest was good too.

I dunno bout you guys, but I actually like the way the graphics look. They have a dark atmosphere to them. A graphical upgrade would be nice, but this is still cool.

The music sets the mood, but it is rather redundant. The tracks are too short for the looooooong stages.

this game has the best boss battles of the cv fan games,and some of them are better than the official game battles.
for example,the girm reaper boss battle,because you have to climb the chains and the death wants to make you fall cutting them offin the first part,in he second he throws his scickle like a boomerang.
in other words,it´s simply brilliant for me.
the dracula final form is too damn hard.
i could not defeat him.
only bad point is,you don´t have double-triple shot.
the graphic style seems to be a hibrid between the 8bit and 16bit style,and reminds me to the late 80´s games.

Yeah. The player character looks like they picked up a bum off the street, handed him some armor and a whip.

Wow, if I didn't know any better, I would say that this is a old school Classicvania minus the usual music.  Konami should find the the makers of this game and hire them now.  Then maybe we will get some creative CV games.  Don't get me wrong. I love CV games, but we really need some fresh blood to create CV games.  I love LoS, but it just doesn't feel like a CV game and should be its own series separate from CV.

I hope this doesn't count as a necro bump, but after seeing footage of this game, I'm very likely to believe it's the best Castlevania clone I've ever seen. This really, really looks like something Konami could have made on the Genesis or Game Gear, and I'd go so far as to claim Konami should purchase the game and adapt it into a Castlevania title.

Or at least consider it an actually playable iteration of Order of Shadows. :P

Wow, I just tried this game and it's freakin' awesome. It felt like Haunted Castle and The Adventure/ReBirth combined.

LOL. I just tried it too. On top of what I said before, I also have to add now that the controls are really tight and spot on. Really felt like I was playing a real CV game. Props to whoever made this.

Gave it a shot earlier... This is actually pretty enjoyable... Though the music REALLY needs improvement. Still, this is pretty impressive.
