    1. STORY
    
    <The story has been directly stolen from the instruction booklet.>
    
    It was the Middle Ages in Transyvania. One man came into possession of an 
    evil power, and the Prince of Darkness was born. Before long, this bieng had 
    used his newfound supernatural powers and the magic powers of his followers 
    to spread his plague of darkness and dispair throughout the European 
    continent. He was Count Dracula. Even the mention of the name of this Prince 
    of Darkness was to cast fear into the hearts of the people of the land, who 
    were powerless to do anything save voice thier
    concern. However, at about the same time a baby girl possesing special 
    powers was born to a family living in a remote area of the country. "Your 
    powers are meant for a higher purpose and not only yourself," she was often 
    reminded as she was growing up. The plot of this girl's fate began to 
    develop one night in her seventeenth year when she met up with the young 
    enigmatic Alucard, who was on a journey to search for the father that had 
    desserted him. The young girl's name was Sonia Belmont, and she was the 
    first of the vampire hunters in the Belmont family to becone legendary.
    
    <notes about story>
    
    Well, this is a great game, and suffices well for any Castlevania fan. About 
    the story, well this is the 'REAL' first Castlevania game. This is the 
    prequel to the first ones for nintendo. I have not played the other Gameboy 
    Castlevania games, nor do I know someone who has. But needles to say, 
    Dracula is yet again the 'last' boss.

    5.STAGES (walkthrough)
    
    STAGE 1:
    
    Easy stage. Should be no problem for any Castlevania fan. Remember to press 
    A + Up button to jump on rope. Other than that, no problem!
    
    Boss Battle
    Creature Bat
    
    What a wuss! Dodge his gay attempts to jump on you . Follow him to a corner 
    and then wail on him!
    
    STAGE 2:
    
    This stage is somewhat easy. Parts get annoying though. But don't get 
    frustrated. You can continue as much as you want.
    
    Boss Battle
    Death Dragon
    
    Another wuss. Boost to 'Burning Mode', Bombard him with whips, and...BAM! 
    he's finished.
    
    STAGE 3:
    
    Annoying stage becuase you do alot of climbing. Watch out for the lizard 
    climbers.
    
    Mid Boss:
    Flying Dragon
    
    He flies up and shoots three (easy to dodge) fireballs at you. Then starts 
    walking. When he walks just whip him and he'll die.
    
    If you go the wrong way you'll have to fight another Mid boss of:
    3 bats
    2 hunchbacks
    3 flying ghouls
    
    Man... The stage gets rather tricky...
    
    Boss Battle
    Grim Reaper
    
    He's a nasty fellow. He jumps around throwing sickles at you. Dodge them and 
    whip when he's open.
    He'll die in a little bit. Dont forget to put it on 'burning mode'
    
    STAGE 4
    
    This is a somewhat medium stage. Its not too hard.
    
    Mid boss:
    Medusa
    
    You might want to 'burn mode' to kill her. She is a wimp that way.
    
    The stage is smooth sailing from there. You'll eventually get to Alucard.
    
    Conversation
    
    Alucard: "Sonia! I didn't think it was true, but its you!"
    
    Sonia:     "Alucard!! I could say the same, what are you doing here?"
    
    Alucard: " Listen to me, Sonia, This is no place for someone like you."
    
    Sonia:     " But Alucard...."
    
    Alucard:  "This problem concerns only me and my father. I've come to fight 
    the lord of this castle. I          cannot let my father, Count Dracula to 
    get away with this. I must do this for my mother and the world she dearly 
    loved. Please understand. I am the only one who can make amends for the sins 
    commited by my father and there is no reason for you to get involved in this 
    battle. Sonia, I could not bear to lose you. Now turn back!"
    
    Sonia:    "Thank you, Alucard, you-you're probably right, In fact you have 
    always made the right desicions. But I have no intentioin of going back now. 
    Just as your father was granted strength from the evil diety to conquer the 
    world, I have been granted strength to fight your father. I will not run 
    away. We all decide our own fate. It was you who taught me that, Alucard.
    
    Alucard: "All right, Sonia, then show me this strength you belive so 
    strongly in, for I too want belive. Let us test this stregth on me. Prepare 
    yourself!"
    
    Boss Battle
    Alucard
    
    Despite how cool he is, he's just a wuss. Burn mode and kill his 
    gold-bricken ass.
    
    Conversation
    
    Alucard: "Ooww! I had no idea you had become this strong."
    
    Sonia:    "Oh, Alucard"
    
    Alucard: "It looks like this time I learned a lesson."
    
    Sonia:    "Alucard, did you purposly..."
    
    Alucard: "No, Sonia. You have made me belive in your strength"
    
    Sonia:    " Alucard, Im so sorry."
    
    Alucard: "Do not trouble yourself about it, Sonia. Now I must sleep. I fear 
    I shall not meet you again. Farewell my beloved, my beautiful vampire 
    slayer."
    
    Sonia:   "Alucard!! I will never forget you. Farwell dear Alucard."
    
    STAGE 5-1
    
    Is it just me, or does this stage get really hard.
    
    Boss Battle
    Jumping Lioness
    
    'Burn mode' and kill him.
    
    STAGE 5-2
    
    This stage is pretty easy considering how short it is. You should have no 
    problem getting to Dracula.
    When you get there, there is a convo.
    
    Conversation
    
    Dracula: "You have done well my girl. In fact you are the first human to 
    come this far. You have my praise."
    
    Sonia:  " You are the Prince of Darkness. Because of you many people have 
    died, many people have suffered."
    
    Dracula: "Oh no, my dear. I have nearly done what you humanswished for. 
    Fufilling your insatiable desires."
    
    Sonia: " People must fufill thier dreams with thier own power. You have been 
    consumed by the power of evil. You no longer have the strength to determine 
    your own fate."
    
    Dracula: " Silence! On the contrary, I am just the one to use this power, 
    and I will be king who rules over the entire world! Give yourself to me 
    young lady. There may be merit in having your presence."
    
    Sonia: "My strength will be used only to protect the entire world! Lord of 
    dark prepare to suffer with trifiling with so many lives!"
    
    Dracula: "As you wish, girl! Then it is your fate to kneel before my 
    power!''
    
    Boss Battle
    Count Dracula
    
    He's one tough customer. "Burn mode" and beat him in his first mode.
    
    Converstation
    
    Dracula: "Well, well.. You are worthy of me. You have lasted me longer than 
    most!"
    
    Sonia:  "Prepare yourself!"
    
    Dracula: " I've just been toying with you so far. But now its time to get 
    serious.'
    
    Boss Battle
    Count Dracula
    
    Watch out now! Use the ice soul weapon to get your health back when you low. 
    Be careful. He' very difficult.
    
    This is as far as I'm going in the stage walkthrough. Basically you beat him 
    and you see the ending. And I don't want to spoil it for anyone. E-mail me 
    if you'd like to know it and can't beat  it.

    8. AUTHOR'S NOTE
    
    
    
    Basically this is my first FAQ, and I realize how hard it is to make one of 
    these. So be sure to thank all
    of those who supply you with FAQ's and walkthroughs. I wanna thank Konami 
    and KGE Nagoya for making this game and sending it to America to support my 
    Castlevania addiction.
    
    As for people the only person I can think of to thank is Andrew Tobias. That 
    mofo kept whistling the damn 1st level song over and over and he and I 
    talked a bit about the game. So thank you Andrew.
