How you want a right answer withou putting them as a option? Insert Vampire Killer and Haunted Castle and then I can choose one of these two :P

Welcome to the dungeon and enjoy your stay ^^
If you really meant to exclude these 2 then I will vote in Dracula X for SNES.

If you were to count it, Haunted Castle wins by a good margin I think, because it was a shamelessly cheap quarter chompin' arcade game. Adventure is hard for all the wrong reasons i.e. laggy controls. Perhaps from overestimating the abilities of the Gameboy. Of those listed 3 and X are definitely the hardest.

For me it's a tie-up between CV 1 and SNES DX. however I've played DX enough times to know the layout of the enemies and traps so it's not as hard as before. But CV 1 is still torture.

Haunted Castle is the toughest, but of the choices you listed, I'm gonna' go with Dracula X, which, by the way, I think is a pretty dope game. Not as good as Rondo, but I've grown to have quite an appreciation for it.

I'm gonna go with Simon's Quest. It's really the only Classicvania I've never completely finished, and out of the choices that are present, it's the one I've not played enough to have any kind of a good idea of its layout and the like. Personally, I think Haunted Castle and The Adventure are the two hardest (the latter simply because it has to be done in one playthrough in addition to its awkward controls. Haunted Castle at least played pretty smoothly).

i'd go with either Chronicles Original mode or Haunted Castle. Neither of which I've been able to beat.  :-X

Chronicles Original Mode is different in many ways to the Arranged Mode, including that in order to see the true ending you have to do like 11 loops, and then Simon Belmont appears smoking in a kind of bizarre drawing.
I never did that. But I'm aware of its existence.
However, if all you have to do is beat it once, then Haunted Castle is way harder, because I could only do that using save states emulating it, while I did beat Chronicles Original Mode. Not without trouble, but I did it.
And that's why I voted for Haunted Castle.

You know some another change? I know about this smoke portait, it seems to appear in a stage after doing various loops like you mentioned, I've not seem it yet too.

Yes, the most fundamental change resides in the higher difficulty.

Why is there no option of the X68000 game, Legends, Belmont's Revenge, Adventure Rebirth and Rondo of Blood?
In my personal opinion, at least X68000 and Legends are way more difficult than CV1 and Bloodlines.
I'd even say that Bloodlines is the easiest ClassicVania game.
