    *****************************INSTANT MESSAGE ME******************************
    If you contact me on one of the instant messengers, and I do not respond, it
    probably means I am busy. I am always talking with my girl, and friends, so
    sometimes I just ignore some instant messages from people I do not know. Be
    nice, and I will talk to you, just don't come out and ask the question and be
    all rude if I do not respond in five seconds, otherwise I probably will just
    block you. I will answer all e-mails about the game, however.
    *****************************************************************************
    
    
    *********************************E-MAIL ME***********************************
    One last note: Only email me about the game at psychopenguin24@aol.com , all
    emails about Final Fantasy IV or Circle of the Moon sent to my other e-mail
    adresses will be deleted and/or ignored. Thanks to all those that have emailed
    me so far, I appreciate it!
    
    1. Check my email backlog. If it's filled up, you may have to wait a while
    before you get a response.
    
    2. I check my email once in a while. Please wait for a response, because I will
    respond to all emails.
    
    3. Please read my guide before asking questions, thats why I have a FAQ and
    Reader Tips section.
    
    4. I will only post your question/tip in my guide if it is good, and has not
    been answered in this guide.
    
    New plan: all questions can be sent to psychopenguin24@aol.com, and if you have
    anything you would like to add to the guide, send it to
    hurricanehelms24@aol.com. This is because it is too tough for me to separate
    stuff people want me to add to the guide from basic questions. if you send any
    reader tips to psychopenguin24@aol.com or any questions to
    hurricanehelms24@aol.com, they will be deleted. Thanks for understanding.

    Wow, I bet you all didn't think you'd ever be seeing another guide from me,
    huh? Well, I am here with a guide for one of my all time favorite games,
    Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. Now, some of you may be asking yourself, "Now,
    Steve, DaLadiesMan, why the hell are you doing a guide?" Well, kids, here are a
    few reasons.
    
    1) I missed out on doing a guide for Symphony of the Night. I loved that game
    to death, and was considering doing a guide for it, but there were already
    enough good guides for it, so I just gave up on the idea. But then this game
    came along, and it is a lot like Symphony of the Night, so there you go!
    
    2) Circle of the Moon is the best handheld game I have ever played. Better than
    Pokemon Yellow, better than Pokemon pinball, better than any other handheld 
    game I have ever played. And it runs circles around all the other Game Boy 
    Advance games I own, so there you go. 
    
    3) I haven't done a guide in a while. Might as well start now, with a game I
    like, before I do one for FF4..

    (Taken from the instruction manual)
    
    The year is 1830. Lady Carmilla has brought Dracula back to life. Nathan Grabes
    and his best friend Hugh Baldwin head to Castle Dracula with Nathan's mentor 
    and Hugh's father Maurice Baldwin to stop Dracula. Before they can fight 
    Dracula, he destroys the floor beneath Hugh and Nathan, causing them to plummet 
    down a long shaft leaving Maurice alone with Dracula and Carmilla. Hugh and 
    Nathan land safely. Hugh runs off to save his father leaving Nathan behind Thus 
    begins the adventure with you in Nathan's boots.
    
    The year is 1830.  In an ancient castle on the outskirts of the Austrian
    empire, a demon lord that would unite the powers of darkness was being
    resurrected at the hand of a fiend yearning for chaos.
    
    At this demonic castle, Camilla, one of Dracula's minions, began the
    incantation of a ritual to bring her lord Dracula back to life.
    
    The vampire hunter Morris and his two apprentices, Nathan and Hugh, sensed an 
    abnormality in the balance of nature and rushed to prevent Dracula's unholy 
    reemergence.
    
    "That unholy monster must never return!"
    
    However, they arrived too late to prevent Dracula's return from his
    confinement.  Dracula used his magical powers to imprison Morris, and cast
    Nathan and Hugh into a graveyard underneath the demonic castle.
    
    Together the two began to search through the castle in order to vanquish
    Dracula and to rescue their master.

    This is where I lead you through this awesome game. I did the format a bit 
    differently than normal this time, as you can see. This time, it's in a "quick 
    walkthrough" kind of format. It goes bullet by bullet, screen by screen, so you 
    can easily find where you need to go!
    
    ===============================================================================
    CATACOMBS
    ===============================================================================
    Main Enemies: 
    Bone Heads
    Skeleton Bombers 
    Skeletons
    Poison Worms          
    Earth Demon
    Skeleton Spear
    Mudmen
    Zombies
    
    Bosses: 
    Cerebus
    ===============================================================================
    Suggested Level: 1
    ===============================================================================
    
    -Move downward, killing all the Skeleton Bombers. Make sure to avoid their
    attacks, they will throw a weapon up in the air, and when it lands, it explodes
    for a second.
    -Move down, then left, then go to the top left to save your game.
    -Build your levels! I got to like Level 8 before fighting the Earth Demon. I
    always like to spend my time building levels, and as long as you just clear out
    all the rows, and move back and forth, you should be building up in no time at
    all.
    -Go down, get the Knife, then head right, killing enemies. 
    -When you get to the Earth Demon, just make sure to jump when he hurls those
    damn spikes out of the ground. I like to take the approach of jumping, hitting,
    jumping, avoiding, jumping, hitting, jumping, hitting, jumping, avoiding. If he
    starts doing something else, just watch the pattern. If you built up like I
    said so, he should die in like 4 hits anyways.
    -Go to the right to get the Dash Boots. Now you can dash.
    -Keep on going along, the path is straight forward for now.
    -When you get to the tower, the bottom room has an Earth Demon, at the end of
    this room is a Max Heart container. The middle door houses a Max HP container.
    The top room is a save point.
    -Keep on going in the bottom room, getting the HP plus container later on.
    -Continue along, until you get near the boss. Raise up if you have to, then go
    through the blinking blue door.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CEREBUS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This sucker is pretty tough if you do not have good stats, so I'd advise
    levelling up for a while before fighting him. Cerebus has one main weakness: he
    tends to stay still a lot. Basically, just beat the crap out of him when he
    stands still. He usually will stand still after he pulls off an attack. He has
    two main attacks: In one, he will charge at you, just jump over him. In the
    second one, he will shoot off a laser beam. Just make sure to get behind him to
    get in some cheap hits. When he pulls out those electrical spheres, just stay
    away. You're probably going to cause more damage to yourself than to him. If
    you have the Holy Water, use it and he'll die pretty quickly!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Get the Jump item, allowing you to perform double jumps.
    -Go back to the previous room, continue all the way to the bottom, and go left
    into another room. Go left, to the end, double jump to the higher ledge than go
    up. 
    -Hidden wall here, go to the right hand wall and whip it, there is a HP Max
    Increase bottle in there.
    -Double jump to the top left ledge, then go through the door.
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    ABYSS STAIRWAY
    ===============================================================================
    Main Enemies: 
    Slime
    Skeleton
    Axe Armor
    Skeleton Bombers
    
    Bosses: 
    None
    ===============================================================================
    Suggested Level: 9
    ===============================================================================
    
    -Drop downward into the next area. If you go up, it is just a dead end, but you
    will be back here soon enough.
    -Then go left, then double jump, and you will be in the other side. 
    -Climb up, then the first chance you get, head to the right, then go down, and
    to the left, to get the MP Max Increase bottle. You can go up, or go down, then
    just curve back around to get to the spot you were at before.
    -Head up, when you see the Axe Armor, kill it, then head right.
    -Go to the first floating platform, then drop down. Jump left, and go into the
    room. Fight off the skeleton then nab the HP Max increase bottle.
    -Drop all the way down, then run to the left side. (Gotta love the dash boots)
    -Head all the way up to the top, then head right, jumping through the crubmling
    platforms, until you get to the save room.
    -Keep on going, basically follow the path. Kill off all the enemies, this is a
    good place to build your levels. I would recommend just killing off all the
    enemies, exiting, coming back in, and doing it again, until you've gained a few
    levels. There's a save point nearby to regain your energy, anyways.
    -Do not go through the door. Go up to the higher ledge, then go left. There is
    a hidden room here which contains a Heart Max increase. Now, go through the
    door to get to the Audience Room.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    AUDIENCE ROOM
    ===============================================================================
    Main Enemies: 
    Axe Armor
    Electric Skeleton
    Skeleton Soldier
    Skeleton
    
    Bosses: 
    None
    ===============================================================================
    Suggested Level: 10
    ===============================================================================
    
    -Go up and right, then jump to the ledge to the left. There are crumbling
    platforms above, so just jump on them, then jump to the next one as soon as
    possible.
    -Get to the top, then head left. Then head downward, then head left. When you
    get to the wall, there is a hidden room here, which contains a Hearts Max
    Increase item.
    -Leave the room, then go right, through the door. When the path splits up, just
    take the middle path. There is a save room here, but this isn't the best place
    to gain levels.
    -Jump upwards, to get to the highest platform. Jump torwards the wall, and whip
    it, there is another hidden room here, which contains a MP Max Increase bottle.
    -Exit this room, then head right. Follow the path along, killing enemies. This
    is not a bad place to gain levels, but sadly there is no save room near here,
    unless you go all the way back to the other save room.
    -There is a pit here, so stand back, and dash, and you should make it. If you
    fall, you can just climb back up to this part, and I am pretty sure you can
    save your game/refill your energy along the way.
    -Go through the room, and get the HP Max Increase bottle. Now, head back left.
    -Now, go through the pit. Go right, there is a Hearts Max Increase bottle here.
    -Head left, go down, defeating Skeletons. These guys aren't tough, they throw
    boomerangs out, which can be easily avoided.
    -When you get to the bottom, head left. There are Electric Skeletons here,
    which are a pain in the ass. They charge at you with this electric laser type
    thing which takes off at least 30 HP (and I was on Level 13), so just avoid
    their charge at first, then come in and take them out with 2 or 3 hits. You
    might even want to use your special weapons just to be on the safe side. 
    -Continue into the next room.
    -Jump up a few ledges to get to the middle of the room. There is a save point
    in the upper right hand side, use it. You can even go out, then fight the
    Electric Skeletons, since they give off large amounts of Experience (16 EXP
    each, I believe, plus all the enemies around, you'll pick up 100 EXP easy). So,
    you can definitely build levels here if you wish.
    -Head to the top, then go right. Continue to the right and get to the higher
    platform. Head up, killing enemies along the way. You can level up here, as
    well, since there is a pretty decent amount of enemies. Head left, then up,
    then left to the ledge.
    -Continue to the end, then double jump up, and you will be in the Outer Wall.
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    OUTER WALL
    ===============================================================================
    Main Enemies: 
    Skeleton
    Brain Floats
    Skeleton Bomber
    Will O' Wisp
    
    Bosses: 
    None
    ===============================================================================
    Suggested Level: 11
    ===============================================================================
    
    -Go right, make a double jump onto the column.
    -Keep on jumping across the columns. Jump off the last one, then whip and hold
    the B button down, you will do a spinning whip. Go down in this room to receive
    the Hearts Max Increase bottle. 
    -Head out, then go all the way left. When you reach the dead end (no, no secret
    room :), double jump on the column, kill the enemies, then jump across them. Go
    right, and go into the next room.
    -More jumping across columns here, when you get to the part where the Brain
    Floats are, use the Mercury/Serpent DSS combo to freeze them, then jump on
    them, like Super Metroid, where you had to freeze the little enemies and use
    them as platforms.
    -Head through the path, killing enemies, and double jumping onto columns. At
    the end, you will get a HP Max Increase bottle. 
    -Go back to the highest platform, go left, and go back down the pit. Get onto
    the column, then jump right across them all again. Drop down the pit to get
    back to the Audience Room.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    AUDIENCE ROOM
    ===============================================================================
    Main Enemies: 
    Axe Armor
    Devil Tower
    Fleaman
    Clinging Man
    Electric Skeleton
    Will O' Wisp
    
    Bosses: 
    Necromancer
    ===============================================================================
    Suggested Level: 12
    ===============================================================================
    
    -Head right, drop down the ledge, go through opening to get to the save point.
    -Drop down through the hole in the floor. Hop down, then head left.
    -At the end of this corridor is the Max MP Increase bottle.
    -Head back to the right, back to the area you came from. Go right, then into
    the next room.
    -Go right, then climb up the platforms into the right hand corner, in this room
    you can get a Hearts Max increase bottle.
    -Head down here, fighting off the enemies, and climbing down, then head to the
    left when you see the path open. Head left, whip the wall at the end to get the
    Max HP Increase bottle.
    -Now, head out of here, then go up and climb higher to the next ledge.
    -Head left, go all the way to the right, and save your game. May I point out
    that this is yet another good time to build your levels up? :)
    -Head out, go left, then jump up the two platforms. Double jump, follow the
    path and go through the distinct looking door to get to the 2nd boss. 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NECROMANCER
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I like to use the DSS Card Combo that combines the fire whip and 25 percent
    more damage for this battle. That combo would be Mercury/Salamander. When he
    starts off his battle, he will have these fire orbs around him, and he will
    shoot them off one by one. I say just whip him a few times, then stand back,
    and let him have his fun shooting them off. He will shoot them off one at a
    time, but they vary in speeds, so you can never be too careful. Zombies tend to
    pop up on the ground, so try to stay in the middle of the area if possible,
    hovering around the middle platforms. He shouldn't be too tough to beat as long
    as you have the Mercury card in your DSS Combo somewhere, it increases the
    damage you do! His second form is tougher, he is a skeleton demon. He does have
    less HP, however. When he turns into a giant orb like thing, just wait in any
    corner and he should bounce right by you. When he does the laser attack,
    skeletons will appear in the bottom instead of zombies.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -After you beat this boss, go left and get the Tackle item.
    -Leave this room, then go back through the boss room and exit to the right.
    -Drop down in this area, to the bottom, then head left. When you get to the
    block, tackle it. Continue along until you get to the door. 
    -Double jump over to the higher ledge, then jump along the platforms. Follow
    the path along until you get to the next door.
    -Break the block, then keep on going left. Go through the path, killing
    enemies, and you should soon reach the Machine Tower, which is a pain in the
    ass, so good luck. :)
    
    *gives up guide* JK. You people know I love you. :)
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    MACHINE TOWER
    ===============================================================================
    Main Enemies: 
    Fox Archer
    Medusa Head
    Heat Shade
    Stone Armor
    
    Bosses: 
    Iron Golem
    ===============================================================================
    Suggested Level: 15
    ===============================================================================
    
    -Head left, go all the way to the left and hop on the moving platform (it moves
    up and down).
    -Ride it up to the top, then double jump across the ledges, and get the Hearts
    Max increase bottle.
    -Drop down to the ledge below and tackle through the block. Drop down, then
    jump across the moving platforms. Go down and right and into the save room.
    -Go out, then jump on the moving platforms to the left. Double jump to the
    ledge, then jump on the moving platform going up. Jump on the ledge to the
    right and hit the torch to get the Stopwatch.
    -Go right, into another room. Follow the path here to nab the HP Max increase
    bottle.
    -Go to the top of the room, then go left and tackle through the block. Keep on
    going until you get to the moving platforms.
    -Dash and double jump onto the first one, then carefully time jumping onto the
    next ones. 
    -Head up, kill the Fox Archer enemy on the left hand side, then break the wall
    behind him. Go inside, kill the Heat Shade enemy, and nab the MP Max increase
    bottle. Note that you can keep on killing this enemy to gain experience, but
    there's a better way later in this area.
    -Go out, then jump across the moving platform, then jump off onto the ledge. 
    -Ignore the space on the right hand side for now.
    -Kill the Heat Shade enemy, then move left and kill the Heat Shade enemy again.
    There is a Fox Archer enemy in the corner as well, make sure to kill him first,
    then avoid the flames of the Heat Shade while killing it.
    -Go up, and in the second opening, go in to save your game. This is a good time
    and place to gain experience, read the next line for more details.
    -Go out, then down, and then over to the left, above the Fox Archer enemy. Kill
    all the enemies in here, at the end is a Hearts Max increase bottle. Here, you
    can exit the room, then go back in, that's about 200 easy experience points,
    plus with the Heat Shades and Fox Archers outside, you can gain levels
    relatively quickly, especially if you are on a lower level than I suggested. :)
    -Now head out, then go all the way up, killing Fox Archers and such. When you
    get to the ledge with the Heat Shade, kill it, then wait for the moving
    platform to come along.
    -Go down to the bottom right hand corner, kill the Fox Archer, then jump to the
    ledge above him. Slide in the hole.
    -Kill the Thunder Demon, move to the right, jump to the ledge, go over, go
    inside the room, kill the Fox Archer and take the HP Max increase bottle.
    -Go out, then go down, and have fun, because you get to take on a Thunder Demon
    while riding on a moving platform. Just kill him off, jump up and hit him, 
    while
    avoiding the thunder. It's tough, I even got waxed a few times off this attack.
    -Head left, then up, then climb all the way up using the platforms to get to
    the HP Max increase bottle. Now, go down, and out to the left.
    -This area should seem familar to you, so head back to the main big area where
    you slid in before.
    -This time, get to the upper right hand corner. When you get to the top moving
    platform, duck under the electricity, then use your whip as a spinner to knock
    out the Medusa Heads, then jump over to the ledge.
    -Go in this room, defeat Earth Armor, and snatch the Hearts Max increase
    bottle. Then, head out, and go to the upper right hand corner.
    -Head into the next area, kill the enemies, tackle the block, and jump on the
    ledge. Enter the room to the right, kill the Stone Armor, and grab the MP Max
    increase bottle. In related news, I gained a level here by killing the enemy 21
    times in a row. :)
    -Head out, then go up, tackle the block, kill the Heat Shade, go down and in
    the room. At the end of this room is a Hearts Max increase bottle.
    -Now, swing down back to this area, but do not tackle the block this time.
    Double jump off it. Kill the Heat Shade, and jump across the ledges. 
    -You will enter a room, and it's long. Just keep going, and take the left path
    at the end to save and recover. Good place to build levels, by the way. :)
    -Now take the upper path. At the top, head right, you got it, secret room. Whip
    the wall, at the end is a MP Max increase bottle. 
    -Head out, go down and right. Go through the door and you will be face to face
    with Iron Golem.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IRON GOLEM
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. This guy is
    a pain, but he moves slow, so there is his weakness. Just attack him with your
    whip, don't stand too close or he will pull out one of his two short range
    attacks. One of these two attacks is the punch, while the other one, he will
    throw an electrical sphere of light at you. His main attack has him summoning
    these things to come out of the ceiling, so just try to avoid them. The main
    problem with this guy is he keeps on regaining health, like 5 HP a second for
    10 seconds, so just blitz him with attacks, and he will die soon enough. I was
    on Level 20 and I scorched him, even though he still managed to take away like
    half my health, that's only because I did not bother to guard against his
    attacks.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Head right to get the Kick Boots. Now, go back and save your game.
    -Head all the way right through this room, defeating the enemies along the way.
    Go right, and go down a few ledges, go right through the door you passed 
    earlier
    to reach the Audience Room.

    -Go right and beat up all the enemies. In the next room, go right and fight
    Flame Demon. You can build up levels here if you want using my tried and true
    method of leaving the room then re-entering it, but nah. 
    -Keep on going right. When you get to the next room, destroy all the enemies,
    then walk into the next room. What excitement, eh?
    -In the next room, go right, then drop down the bottom, whip through the wall,
    go through the room, on the right hand side is the Hearts Max increase item. 
    -Head out of the room, then head left, then kick off the walls to get up to the
    ledge. When you get to the fork, head down, then go right to get to the warp
    zone.
    -Head left, out of the room. Head left and keep on going along through this
    room. Ehen you reach the wall, double jump, then whip the wall. Go in the room
    and get the HP Max Increase item.
    -Keep on going up, take the Hearts Max Increase item.
    -Now, follow the path down, then right, then up, then you will see a door on
    the left. That is the door to Chapel Tower.

    Suggested Level: 23
    ===============================================================================
    
    I really don't like this place. Here is a word of advice on two of the enemies
    in here that pissed me off.
    
    Marionette - That curse attack is annoying. They come after you, so stand back
    and use your special weapons if you can. They hover, then suddenly swoop in on
    you.
    
    Bloody Sword - My God, these suckers are annoying. Just follow their pattern,
    when they spina round, they're gonna shoot after you, just dodge them then hit
    them when you have a chance. Easier said than done.
    
    -Head right, and when you see a hole in the ceiling, jump through it. Head
    right, and save your game. Now go down and build up levels. You can get like
    3200 experience points in this room, that's easy level building! I got to Level
    38 here so stop your whining. :). 
    -Now head up, jumping on the ledges to the left. Then jump on the ledge to the
    right and kill the Flame Armors and other fun enemies. Double jump to the next
    ledge, then dash and double jump to the ledge after that. Get to the wall, whip
    it, go in, and take the MP Max Increase bottle.
    -Leave the room, head out, go right, and jump onto the next ledge. Keep on
    going to the right, then double jump across some ledges to get to the top of
    the room. 
    -Go left into the next room. In this new room, go left and down through the
    room. Get to the far left and use the stone whip combo to turn the Brain Floats
    into stone, then jump up them to get through this room. When you get to the 
    last
    Brain Float, double jump onto the ledge. Take the Hearts Max Increase bottle
    from the top of the room. 
    -Now head all the way to the ground. When you get back to the exit, double jump
    and kick off the walls until you get to the ledge. Now follow this path along,
    at the end, grab the MP Max Increase bottle. 
    -Now head out of this room, go right, double jump onto the ledge, and go into
    the next room.
    -Go right, then keep on double jumping across the ledges. I really hate this
    part, so follow the path and avoid the Marionettes and Bloody Swords. If you
    need help in obliberating these pests, just read what I typed in the opening
    part of this section.
    -When you see a ledge, double jump, then kick off the wall to land on the
    ledge. Whip through the wall and snatch the MP Max Increase bottle while
    avoiding that piece of crap Bloody Sword. I wish there was some DSS Card Combo
    that just killed these suckers instantly. Oh yeah, you can get the Mars card
    from these suckers, so just exit this room and come back in until you get it,
    no need fighting 4 at one time just to get the card.
    -Now, go out, and off the ledge, and go right. Jump to the ledge you will see
    soon. Jump up ledges (fun fun fun), and go left into the save room and recover
    your game.
    -Head out and double jump up into the next room. There is a Thunder Demon in
    here, this is yet another good place to gain levels. Head left and fight
    through all the enemies. Now double jump up, and head right, killing enemies
    and avoiding the pits. 
    -Head right and double jump over the pit, and take out all your anger on the
    Thunder Demon. Head right into the next room, turn the Bloody Swords to stone
    (tough) then jump onto the ledge and turn all the Brain Floats to stone
    (easier, but still tough), and grab the MP Max Increase bottle. Then head out,
    go left, over the pit (or down and out to save your game) and double jump onto
    the next ledge you see.
    -Double jump up some ledges here, then kick off the wall, but when you do, whip
    the right hand side of the wall and go in there to get the HP Max Increase
    bottle.
    -Now head out and continue to follow the path. (Left, kick up wall, down, left,
    jump kick the wall to get to the top, left, down some ledges). When you get to
    the end of this path, grab the Hearts Max Increase bottle.
    -Drop down to the bottom and head right. Keep on double jumping up the ledges,
    and head left. Go left when the path splits. When you get to a wall, whip it
    and take the HP Max Increase bottle from in there.
    -Leave the room, then kick jump off the wall, and save your game and recover.
    Head right, and walk into the battle with the fun Adramelech.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ADRAMELECH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. I basically
    just beat the crap out of him without worrying about his attacks, and if you 
    are on a high enough level, you may just be able to get away with it. If not, 
    well, he shoots off these blue lasers which surround his face, so you might 
    just want to get back and allow him to shoot those things off, and use your 
    special weapon like an axe or something to destroy him via long range. But then 
    he will pull these orbs out of the ground, and those aren't really fun at all. 
    Just destroy them, though, when he pulls those out. Remember that his head is 
    the only weak part of his body, so just keep jumping and hitting it, and 
    getting out of the way when he shoots the lasers. However, sometimes he will do 
    this attack where a crapload of skulls will go flying out of his hand, so just 
    slide away from that. I tried to kill the skulls but there was too many of them 
    and I don't think I got any of them to die anyways. Just keep on whipping him, 
    and if you have a good enough level, you should beat him with ease.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Now, head right and hit the switch, which will destroy the statue looking
    thingie, and all the other ones (some of which you have probably already
    encountered, I know I have). Now grab the MP Max Increase bottle. 
    -Now, head back to the save room. Head out, then right, then drop through the
    last pit, then head right.
    -There is really only one basic concept here: follow the path. When you get to
    the huge room, just fall down, then slide, then head into the right side to
    save your game and recover. 
    -Now head down, and down, and left, and keep on going left until you get back
    to the Eternal Corridor.

    ===============================================================================
    
    Two major enemies to point out here that gave me fits.
    
    Killer Bees - These guys are annoying because they fly in the air, and suddenly
    they swoop down and poison you. Stay back and fire away at them, do not let 
    them
    get too close to you. I had to use about 10 antidotes between these guys and
    the..
    
    Poison Armor - These guys will shoot off a poison mist that can actually go
    right through you without hurting you, so I stood in front of it, let the mist
    go through me (avoiding the sword) and just kicking his ass, then avoiding the
    mist, because it will hurt you the second time around, enough to poison you.
    
    -Go left and kill all the Imps. Go down and press the switch, then go down, and
    over, and jump on the moving platform. Slide under the passage when you get
    there and go in to get the Hearts Max Increase bottle.
    -Now, head left, and over, and go through the door. Go through this room, and
    remember, there are Imps on the platforms, so kill them, then jump on the
    platforms.
    -When you get to the next room, kill a few million Specters (they keep
    appearing!) and jump up the crumbling platforms, to eventually get to the save
    room on the right. Enter, save your game, recover, all that good stuff.
    -Now head out, and go all the way to the bottom of this room. Go through the
    door, keep on going right until you get to the MP Max Increase bottle. Take it,
    then go back left.
    -Drop down to the lower area and go through the right hand door. Go through
    this area and grab the HP Max Increase item at the end. Now go back out of this
    room.
    -Now, head left through the next door.
    -Follow the path through this room, killing all the annoying enemies. When you
    get to the next room, drop down to the lower area, then head left. Double jump
    to the ledge, and whip the wall. Go inside, and head left. Double jump to start
    going across the bridge, then keep on sliding to get under the platform. Go
    down, and right to get the MP Max Increase bottle.
    -Now head out into the previous room. Go right and onto the edge and kill the
    Poison Armors.
    -Head into the room, and go up, and left in the first opening you see to get to
    the save room. Save, recover, head up, and to the left, and get ready for a
    tough ass battle.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DRAGON ZOMBIES (X2)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. Goddamn,
    this boss is tough. There are 2 of them, one on each side, and their only
    weakness is their heads. It took me 5 times to beat them on Level 40, but I was
    beating on the one on the right first, and when I finally beat them, I took the
    one on the left first. I stayed on the bottom and just threw axes at them when
    their heads came swinging around, yes it was cheap, but it got the job done to
    a certain extent. The left hand side one had a bunch of nasty attacks, like
    this one where he threw rocks straight at me, and another one where he summoned
    stuff to fall from the ceiling. They were both very annoying. The one on the
    right hand side shot off these blue lasers from his mouth, which weren't half
    as annoying, but painful. They also swung their heads around a lot. When one
    dragon dies, the other one will recover HP, so try not to attack the other one
    too much before destroying one. When the one recovers HP, I whipped it a lot,
    which made it easier to kill, because you probably can get off a good 200 HP
    damage before it'll stop healing. Good luck!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Now, head left, and grab the Heavy Ring, which allows you to move those brown
    blocks you have seen along the way up to this point.
    -Go back to the save room and save your game. Head out, down, and left, out
    through the door. Kill the two poison armors and go left. Head across the
    crumbling bridge, and slide under, just like before. Head up, kill the Poison
    Armor, move the block, and head out, back to the Abyss Stairway.

    -Drop straight down to the bottom of the room. Go right, and drop the box to
    the bottom of the ground. Head right and grab the Max MP Increase bottle.
    -Now, head back left to where you started. Keep going left, down the hill, and
    push the block to the right. Use it to jump up to the higher ledge.
    -Go left into the next room. Take the bottom path and tackle through the block,
    the other blocks will fall down. Go up to the higher ledge, and take the block
    and move it left until it falls. Now, head left out of the room.
    -Go left and onto the higher ledge. Go left, then down. Continue all the way
    down and save your game when you get to the bottom (left hand side).
    -Exit, and go right. 
    -In the next room, an interesting puzzle awaits. In order to defeat this puzzle
    and move on, go to the upper ledge, and stand on the white block. Move the 
    brown
    block down to the ground below. Jump down, and tackle through the white block.
    Now move the block that was next to it to the right. Now tackle the final white
    block, and move the other brown block down below to the right. Slide under and
    move to the next room.
    -In this room, this is gonna be fun. Go down, killing Bone Towers. When you get
    to the path, go right. If you see a Hearts Max, go left and go up, then right.
    Climb up, killing Thunder Armors. When you get to the top, move the block down.
    Keep on moving it down until you see the Hearts Max Increase bottle, then 
    double
    jump off the block and take the Hearts Max Increase bottle.
    -Now move left into the next room. This is interesting. When you see the white
    block, tackle it. Double jump off the brown block, and kill the Fox Hunter.
    Double jump into the next platform, then kill the other Fox Archer, and move
    the block down. Now, move the block on left down, and move the other block down
    too. Now slide off those 2 blocks, and go into the next room. 
    -In this room, double jump across the ledges, killing Fox Hunters. When you get
    to the top, whip the wall on the right hand side, kill the Poltergeist, and nab
    the Hearts Max Increase bottle.
    -Now, head out. When you see the brown block, push it out halfway, but make
    sure it doesn't fall over. Go down, and when you get to the next brown block,
    push it all the way down. Go left and kill all the Fox Hunters, go up, double
    jump and then jump off the block, kill the Fox Hunter, and nab the MP Max
    Increase bottle.
    -Go down and kill the 2 Holy Armors (aiyee, duck!), and go left. Go down, and
    defeat all the Succubus. A couple of ledges down, whip the wall on the right
    and go in and get the Hearts Max Increase bottle. After you beat Camilla, come
    back here, and Lillith will be here, by the way.
    -Now keep going down, when you get to the bottom, head right. In the next room,
    the puzzle here is kind of tricky. Tackle the white block, then push a block 
    off
    the platform to the area below. Now, go down and push the other block next to
    it. Go up, and push the final block all the way to the left, then drop it, then
    push it all the way over to the right. Jump on the blocks and side through.
    -Go right, dash and double jump off to the high ledge. Whip the wall and grab
    the MP Max Increase bottle. Go down, and beat up on the Forest Armors and
    Poltergeists. I raised levels here, because the room on the left is a.. save
    point!
    -Now, go down, and when you have a choice of going left or right, go right.
    Kill the two Forest Armors, and then go right. Kill all the enemies here,
    basically in here are Golems and Dryads. Get the HP Max Increase bottle in
    here. 
    -Now, go all the way back and save your game again. Go down, and left, and
    fight Death.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DEATH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. Death has
    two forms, and neither one is terribly tough. If you were on Level 46 like I
    was, this guy shouldn't even phase you. The toughest thing about this boss is
    the fact that little saber like things will be flying everywhere. Just avoid
    them and hit them, while jumping up to hit the boss. If you have the axe, use
    it. The boss itself will just do attacks like shooting orbs and this attack
    where he will have three spears coming out of him. That attack is so easy to
    avoid. After a while, he will turn into this walking thing. Hit its shell a few
    times, and he will die. If you have the boomerang, use it. Again, the thing to
    watch out for here is the damn enemies floating everywhere, just avoid them and
    attack the boss when you have a chance. He should die soon enough.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Go left and grab the Cleanse Magic item. Whip the left wall and defeat the
    Golem to get the HP Max Increase bottle.
    -Head right until you get to the part where you can slide, and do that. You'll
    be back in the beginning of the game!

    you will be back in the Abyss Stairway.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CAMILLA
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. What a
    surprise, eh? She rides atop a skull, which means you have to hit her, not the
    skull. That is pretty much the toughest part of the battle, because you have to
    jump higher than usual to hit her. She has two main attacks: one is a laser 
    that follows you around, up and down, and the other has these blue bubbles that 
    also follow you around. To avoid the laser, get on the ground and duck. It 
    should pass right over you. To avoid the bubbles, just run around and they will 
    go away after a while. Do not stand under the boss, as it will shoot something 
    at you and hit you. The wind attack is painful, and it's a pain because it is
    tough to avoid. Just try your best, you will know when she is about to do it if
    you are near her at the time. When she swoops down at you, just slide into the
    other side and she should miss you. Use healing items if you must, and she will
    die soon enough.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Go right and take the Roc Wing item. This allows you to do super high jumps. 
    -Go back to the save room. Save and recover.
    -Go up, and about halfway up, go left and down and get the HP Max Increase

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    HUGH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. What a
    surprise, eh? You all should be getting used to that by now. :). This guy is
    pretty easy, he is the same size as you, and his main attacks include charging
    up and dashing at you, hitting you with his sword, and shooting off spikes. I
    just stood back and kept on hitting him with my boomerang, he barely touched
    me. If you need to come in close, remember he likes to charge up and go after
    you, but he will charge up before dashing, so you will know when to get out of
    his way. When he charges, use the Roc Wing for a few seconds, then come down
    and he should be done. His sword attack does a decent amount of damage, but
    nothing too bad, and besides, if you are careful enough he should miss you
    every time with it. The spikes attack is simple, he only shoots off 3 at a
    time, and one goes up diagonal, one goes straight, and one goes down diagonal,
    so just avoid it. This guy isn't as tough as I expected. He will transform
    halfway through, but he doesn't get too much tougher.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DRACULA (1st)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. What a
    surprise, eh? You all should be getting used to that by now. :). This battle is
    really easy. I was surprised. Basically, all you have to do is hit him a few
    times, avoid his attack, and let him warp. He has three basic attacks. One, he
    will shoot three bats at you, just jump over them. Two, he will shoot bats
    after you, one after another. Just jump over these, too. Finally, he will shoot
    bats in all different directions. I just took the hits and killed him before he
    did.    SIMPLE!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Go back and save your game.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DRACULA (2nd)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This guy is tough. No, I did not use the Mercury/Salamander combo this time
    well I did at first, but I changed it a lot as the battle went on. This guy is
    huge, and he warps before attacking, so it's hard to hit him. He has three main
    attacks. One, he will shoot lasers at you. This attack is easy enough to avoid,
    all you have to do is jump over them. Two, he will send a bunch of red bubbles
    after you. The Jupiter/Serpent combo protects you from this attack. Three, he
    will summon these giant rocks to come out of the sky. Just run back and forth
    and you should avoid these. Attack Dracula when the giant eyeball in his chest
    opens up. When it does, hit him a few times, then it will close up. It usually
    opens up right after he warps, so when he warps, get ready to hit him. When you
    do enough damage, he will start to blink, and charge after you. Use the Roc 
    Wing to get high up in the air, but that won't stop Dracula from chasing after 
    you for long, so MOVE! After he does this a few times, he will turn into a
    floating, flashing eyeball. Use the Ice Shield and the bats should die when
    they hit the shield. Whip the floating eye, and he will turn back into his
    normal form soon enough. He will start charging, so duck left and right, move
    around to avoid it. Use healing items, and keep on hitting him, and soon enough
    you will defeat him!  Congrats!

    ----------fouche83@hotmail.com asked----------
    Q: I have 100% of the map complete, but did not kill the final boss yet (have 
    about14/15 cards).  My question is if there is any more to the game 
    possibly, I was thinking it may have something to do with the toy ring or 
    one of the enemies that I got a toy ring from which is the running skeleton 
    that is in the (double) secret area on the left of the corridor that you are 
    falling in at the beginning of the game (the skeleton is in the second 
    secret area that is found above the secret area on the left.).  I just think 
    that there is some reason for the toy ring, but can't figure out what. 
    Please tell me if you have any ideas.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A: There is absolutely no use for the Toy Ring whatsoever. You can also get it
    from the Evil Pillars in the Observation Tower.

    Q: Hi i'm playing castlevania and I'm wondering how to beat trick candle what
    level do you suggest? I'm level 40 right now and have the rose sword but i
    still cant beatæhim. If this is already on the strategy guide i must have
    missed it if it is i'm sorry for bothering you.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A: Level 40 should be fine.. 2 hits from the whip should kill him. What I
    reccomend is using the DSS combo Venus/Salamander which increases attack by 25
    percent, then hitting the candle directly when it shoots out, then again when
    it hits the ground. Good luck!

    ----------Mike (haegylulsuh@yahoo.com) asked----------
    Q: Hi!
    
    I'm at the end of Circle of the Moon, and Dracula's
    second form killed me.  Well, that's what I get for
    going at him on level 48.
    
    So, I figure while I'm trying to get my level up, I
    could go back and get any missing DSS cards and
    explore any map areas I missed.  So far, so good.  I
    only need three cards, and two of them are the ones
    that the monsters in the Battle Arena drop.  But, I
    found two areas I haven't covered.
    
    The first is the Battle Arena.  Well, I don't want to
    get beat there any more than I wanted Drac to beat me
    around.  I'll get that later.
    
    But, the other area is in the underground waterway. 
    In the large room with the switches and the stairs,
    there's a door on my map.  I guess it leads to an MP
    up or a HP up.  But, there are boxes in the way.  I
    tried to hit the switches so that I'm down on that
    level and the boxes aren't in the way, but it seems
    that no matter how I move, I'm still cutting myself
    off from that area.
    
    Which brings me to my question.  How do I get in
    there?
    
    Thanks for your time and help!
    
    Mike
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A: Press the switch you see directly to the right, go to the end of the room,
    go into the next room, hit the switch, go back to the first switch and hit it
    again.

    ----------illww@usa.net asked----------
    Q: Thanks for your very nice walkthru of Circle of Moon.  It helped me a lot
    while playing the game.  So far I'm at the last part, b4 defeating the 2nd
    transformation of Dracula.  I am not able to defeat him just yet.  However,
    that's not much of my interest since I know it's just a matter of time.  
    Here is my question.  I'm sure you have been to a place called the Battle
    Field or Battle Ground.. or something like that, where your mindpower got
    drowned, so no special attacks.  After defeating the beasts in this area, you
    come to a place where there are bunch of candles waiting to be whipped.  But
    the passage to those candles are too tiny, and it requires sliding thru it. 
    However, since you can't slid while jumping, it's impossible to get thru the
    small passages, and see what the items are.  I know it's not that big of a
    deal, but because b4 attempting the Battle Field, the game said that I'll be
    awarded for my effort.  And i was thinking maybe something really special
    would come up.  So how did you get pass this part?
    Thanks for any help. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A: After completing the first 3 rooms, go down, and just go left through the 
    door instead of sliding out the passage on the right. You can use these 
    passages to escape if you are running low on energy and items, however. Hope 
    this helps!

    the Machine Tower after you beat Camilla. Double Grips are dropped by Dark
    Armor, located in the Observation Tower. Skeleton Medialist is in the secret
    room found in the left hand side of the long jump you make in the beginning of
    the game. Roc wing up until you find the room, then whip the ceiling, go up,

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CEREBUS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This sucker is pretty tough if you do not have good stats, so I'd advise
    levelling up for a while before fighting him. Cerebus has one main weakness: he
    tends to stay still a lot. Basically, just beat the crap out of him when he
    stands still. He usually will stand still after he pulls off an attack. He has
    two main attacks: In one, he will charge at you, just jump over him. In the
    second one, he will shoot off a laser beam. Just make sure to get behind him to
    get in some cheap hits. When he pulls out those electrical spheres, just stay
    away. You're probably going to cause more damage to yourself than to him. If
    you have the Holy Water, use it and he'll die pretty quickly!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NECROMANCER
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I like to use the DSS Card Combo that combines the fire whip and 25 percent
    more damage for this battle. That combo would be Mercury/Salamander. When he
    starts off his battle, he will have these fire orbs around him, and he will
    shoot them off one by one. I say just whip him a few times, then stand back,
    and let him have his fun shooting them off. He will shoot them off one at a
    time, but they vary in speeds, so you can never be too careful. Zombies tend to
    pop up on the ground, so try to stay in the middle of the area if possible,
    hovering around the middle platforms. He shouldn't be too tough to beat as long
    as you have the Mercury card in your DSS Combo somewhere, it increases the
    damage you do!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IRON GOLEM
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. This guy is
    a pain, but he moves slow, so there is his weakness. Just attack him with your
    whip, don't stand too close or he will pull out one of his two short range
    attacks. One of these two attacks is the punch, while the other one, he will
    throw an electrical sphere of light at you. His main attack has him summoning
    these things to come out of the ceiling, so just try to avoid them. The main
    problem with this guy is he keeps on regaining health, like 5 HP a second for
    10 seconds, so just blitz him with attacks, and he will die soon enough. I was
    on Level 20 and I scorched him, even though he still managed to take away like
    half my health, that's only because I did not bother to guard against his
    attacks.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ADRAMELECH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. I basically
    just beat the crap out of him without worrying about his attacks, and if you 
    are on a high enough level, you may just be able to get away with it. If not, 
    well, he shoots off these blue lasers which surround his face, so you might 
    just want to get back and allow him to shoot those things off, and use your 
    special weapon like an axe or something to destroy him via long range. But then 
    he will pull these orbs out of the ground, and those aren't really fun at all. 
    Just destroy them, though, when he pulls those out. Remember that his head is 
    the only weak part of his body, so just keep jumping and hitting it, and 
    getting out of the way when he shoots the lasers. However, sometimes he will do 
    this attack where a crapload of skulls will go flying out of his hand, so just 
    slide away from that. I tried to kill the skulls but there was too many of them 
    and I don't think I got any of them to die anyways. Just keep on whipping him, 
    and if you have a good enough level, you should beat him with ease.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DRAGON ZOMBIES (X2)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. Goddamn,
    this boss is tough. There are 2 of them, one on each side, and their only
    weakness is their heads. It took me 5 times to beat them on Level 40, but I was
    beating on the one on the right first, and when I finally beat them, I took the
    one on the left first. I stayed on the bottom and just threw axes at them when
    their heads came swinging around, yes it was cheap, but it got the job done to
    a certain extent. The left hand side one had a bunch of nasty attacks, like
    this one where he threw rocks straight at me, and another one where he summoned
    stuff to fall from the ceiling. They were both very annoying. The one on the
    right hand side shot off these blue lasers from his mouth, which weren't half
    as annoying, but painful. They also swung their heads around a lot. When one
    dragon dies, the other one will recover HP, so try not to attack the other one
    too much before destroying one. When the one recovers HP, I whipped it a lot,
    which made it easier to kill, because you probably can get off a good 200 HP
    damage before it'll stop healing. Good luck!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DEATH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. Death has
    two forms, and neither one is terribly tough. If you were on Level 46 like I
    was, this guy shouldn't even phase you. The toughest thing about this boss is
    the fact that little saber like things will be flying everywhere. Just avoid
    them and hit them, while jumping up to hit the boss. If you have the axe, use
    it. The boss itself will just do attacks like shooting orbs and this attack
    where he will have three spears coming out of him. That attack is so easy to
    avoid. After a while, he will turn into this walking thing. Hit its shell a few
    times, and he will die. If you have the boomerang, use it. Again, the thing to
    watch out for here is the damn enemies floating everywhere, just avoid them and
    attack the boss when you have a chance. He should die soon enough.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CAMILLA
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. What a
    surprise, eh? She rides atop a skull, which means you have to hit her, not the
    skull. That is pretty much the toughest part of the battle, because you have to
    jump higher than usual to hit her. She has two main attacks: one is a laser 
    that follows you around, up and down, and the other has these blue bubbles that 
    also follow you around. To avoid the laser, get on the ground and duck. It 
    should pass right over you. To avoid the bubbles, just run around and they will 
    go away after a while. Do not stand under the boss, as it will shoot something 
    at you and hit you. The wind attack is painful, and it's a pain because it is
    tough to avoid. Just try your best, you will know when she is about to do it if
    you are near her at the time. When she swoops down at you, just slide into the
    other side and she should miss you. Use healing items if you must, and she will
    die soon enough.

    HUGH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. What a
    surprise, eh? You all should be getting used to that by now. :). This guy is
    pretty easy, he is the same size as you, and his main attacks include charging
    up and dashing at you, hitting you with his sword, and shooting off spikes. I
    just stood back and kept on hitting him with my boomerang, he barely touched
    me. If you need to come in close, remember he likes to charge up and go after
    you, but he will charge up before dashing, so you will know when to get out of
    his way. When he charges, use the Roc Wing for a few seconds, then come down
    and he should be done. His sword attack does a decent amount of damage, but
    nothing too bad, and besides, if you are careful enough he should miss you
    every time with it. The spikes attack is simple, he only shoots off 3 at a
    time, and one goes up diagonal, one goes straight, and one goes down diagonal,
    so just avoid it. This guy isn't as tough as I expected. He will transform
    halfway through, but he doesn't get too much tougher.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DRACULA (1st)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I again used the DSS Card Combo Mercury/Salamander for this battle. What a
    surprise, eh? You all should be getting used to that by now. :). This battle is
    really easy. I was surprised. Basically, all you have to do is hit him a few
    times, avoid his attack, and let him warp. He has three basic attacks. One, he
    will shoot three bats at you, just jump over them. Two, he will shoot bats
    after you, one after another. Just jump over these, too. Finally, he will shoot
    bats in all different directions. I just took the hits and killed him before he
    did.    SIMPLE!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DRACULA (2nd)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This guy is tough. No, I did not use the Mercury/Salamander combo this time
    well I did at first, but I changed it a lot as the battle went on. This guy is
    huge, and he warps before attacking, so it's hard to hit him. He has three main
    attacks. One, he will shoot lasers at you. This attack is easy enough to avoid,
    all you have to do is jump over them. Two, he will send a bunch of red bubbles
    after you. The Jupiter/Serpent combo protects you from this attack. Three, he
    will summon these giant rocks to come out of the sky. Just run back and forth
    and you should avoid these. Attack Dracula when the giant eyeball in his chest
    opens up. When it does, hit him a few times, then it will close up. It usually
    opens up right after he warps, so when he warps, get ready to hit him. When you
    do enough damage, he will start to blink, and charge after you. Use the Roc 
    Wing to get high up in the air, but that won't stop Dracula from chasing after 
    you for long, so MOVE! After he does this a few times, he will turn into a
    floating, flashing eyeball. Use the Ice Shield and the bats should die when
    they hit the shield. Whip the floating eye, and he will turn back into his
    normal form soon enough. He will start charging, so duck left and right, move
    around to avoid it. Use healing items, and keep on hitting him, and soon enough
    you will defeat him!  Congrats!

    ---------------------------------------------(VIII. DSS CARDS LIST)------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    You can collect DSS Cards during the game. There are 20 in all, totalling over
    100 card combos. There are two types of cards: Action and Attribute. The action
    cards enable you to perform an action, like flames, while an attribute card
    gives you an added effect or benefit, such as higher attack power. You can
    combine the two types of cards to do combos like a flame whip with 25 percent
    higher attack power. They definitely come in handy, especially for boss 
    battles.

    -Here is a basic hint: Since save rooms enable you to regain health and MP, use
    them to your advantage. Always raise levels near a save room!
    
    -Exactly how to use a DSS Card is not apparent just by finding one. An Action
    Card and Attribute card must be used in combination to make its effect known.
    Once a combination has been used, a description of the effect will appear on
    the DSS screen. There are a variety of different effects possible, which
    include an increase in offensive, defensive, and other attributes. There are
    also those that contain command techniques. Do not rely on just one card but be
    mindful of different cards depending on the situation at hand.
    
    -Save often and more than anything else be cautious not to get killed, which
    will end the game. Keeping this up will slowly but surely make the player
    stronger and closer to completing the quest.
    
    -Try attacking the walls surrouding any suspiciously empty spaces on the map.
    The walls might break away to reveal a hidden chamber.
    
    -Skillfully use the warp zones scattered throughout the Ancient Castle. It will
    become easier to move to far away spots.

    Akumajo Dracula : Circle Of The Moon Card Guide
    For Gameboy Advance
    Version 1.1 (15 June 2001)
    
    Unpublished Copyright 2001 Nyst
    Email:nyst@ignmail.com
    
    This card guide written for Japanese Castlevania(Akumajo Dracula) : 
    Circle Of The Moon. There maybe changes to the US game and the names 
    maybe different. 
    
    I hardly have time to update this guide, so it may take some time 
    for a newer version to be put up. Also I do not have or played the 
    US version, thus I do not know the actual names of monsters or places 
    in that version of the game.....=)
    
    !!!THE INFORMATION GATHERED IS BASED ON JAPANESE VERSION OF COTM!!!
    
    ===============
    Version History
    ===============
    ver 1.1 - Corrected SOME information....Final version(maybe)
    
    ver 1.0(8th april 2001) - Updated some important card locations
    
    ver 0.8(1st april 2001) - First card guide written
    
    
    ==============
    Card Locations
    ==============
    Here are the card locations that I found, where u can get the cards 
    from the earliest monsters. Cards can be found in OTHER monsters too.
    Card drops randomly at different times, maybe affected by lck(luck) 
    or level(not sure). Once a card is gotten, it won't drop again of
    course.

    =============================
    Card Combination Effects(DSS)
    =============================
    I will list the effects by action cards. Action cards represents 
    different kinds abilties that can be used. Attribute cards are
    different types of elements available. 
    
    Some cards need certain button sequence to activate, but it's the
    same for all that need it.(Uranus, Apollo and Pluto)
    
    Here's the button sequence:
    Activate DSS(Press the left shoulder button). Press,
    Down, Left Down, Left, Left Up, Up, Attack(B button)
    OR
    Down, Right Down, Right, Right Up, Up, Attack(B button)
    
    Tips : Monster that are frozen or stoned can be step on without 
    taking any damage. This allows you to jump to higher places
    that cannot be reached easily.

    Diana + Salamander = A fireball is released with each attack 
    
    Mercury + Mandragora = Whip of Thorns

    even know what the combo is, so I cant figure it out) 
    
    Jupiter + Mandragora = ??? 
    
    Diana + Mandragora = 3 Plumes of Petals are released with each attack

    ----------Amarant (Krypto13@cs.com)----------
    
    Killer Bees-Hate them damn bees don't ya? Well, there's an easy way to get to
    'em without taking any damage. Just have the dagger and throw it at them from a
    safe distance. 
    
    Dragon Zombie(s) Boss-I've found a very easy (yet long way) to beat the hard
    boss. Once you start have the Poison Cloud combo (DSS cards Jupiter/Manticore)
    or the Fireball combo (DSS cards Jupiter/Salamander). To lessen the risk of
    loosing your MP fast, have an item that gives you high intellagence (sorry if
    spelled wrong). Oh and make sure you also have the axe sub-weapon. When you
    start the battle, go over to the left dragon. Get on his left side (side
    closest to the wall) and keep jumping and hitting his head with your whip. When
    the head is out of reach, throw a couple of axes for extra damage. When he is
    just about to swing his head into the wall, slide under his neck and out into
    the middle (don't worry about the falling rocks since the Poison Cloud combo or
    the Fireball combo will destroy the rocks). Once the left side is done, do the
    same with the right side. 
    
    
    ----------Sam Winotai (swinotai@yahoo.com)----------
    
    I found that Cerebus we pretty easy to kill... all you have to do is just
    stand on the side right by the doorway, and he can't pounce at you, just
    throw knives, and whip him when he gets near. The laser beam won't affect
    you at all since he will be facing the other direction. When he decides to
    do the sphere, just go to the other side of the room, and do the same thing
    over again... just thought you might want to add that to your walkthrough
    since it might be a helpful hint.

    Hello! A few things:
    1. (correction) In your FAQ's Faq, you said that the Mars DSS card comes from
    the Marionette enemy. It actually comes from the Bloody Sword.
    2. (extra) If you have 'em, Jupiter + Mandragora works great in the Zombie
    Dragons Room (you called 'em the Twin Dragons, and I suppose they might be).
    When your HP gets low, stand near the door and activate the combo - then stand
    still. Your HP will come back slowly! There is a small, SMALL chance that a
    fireball will hit you, but you can duck it.

     Just a couple of strats I found EXTREMELY helpful on my first pass through
    
     Cerberus - use Holy Water, it will usually hit him 10+ times for 7-10 damage
    (depends on level), makes him a cinch.
    
     Adramelch (or "that smelly goat guy" as I call him) - Ax his head off. If you
    are in the right place when you throw you will hit him 2x for 25-30 damage each
    (depends on level of course).  For me it was half on/half off the column just
    next to him (away side of the column) and about 3/4 of a jump off the ground. 
    Fopl around until you find you lucky spot, and just run to the edge of the room
    when you need to dodge an attack/whip the little blue balls on the floor/etc.
    
     Twin Dragons - Once again its all about placement.  Both dragons can swing
    their heads at you, but the breath is depended on which dragon it is, Left does
    the annoying fire spray that can hit you almost anywhere, and Right throws the
    insignificant white bubble breath that (unlike the fire) stops when it hits the
    other dragon and can't be aimed at the ground.  Thus, stand in between the
    dragons, on the ground, and as close to the left dragon as possible, and all
    you have to fear is the 360 degree head roll attack, which can be dodged with a
    slide under the neck and a double jump over the neck (or vise versa).  Use you
    best Mars combo so your 'sword' hits their head when its above you and hack
    away.  Try to kill the fire sprayer (Left) first because he has the worse 
    breath
    attack, then repeat on the other side, mirrored position.
    
     Camilla - Another cinch if you know the trick.  Her only annoying attack is
    the purple bubbles that continually follow you, so use Jupiter/Serpent so the
    circling ice blocks destroy ALL the bubbles for you.  The other four attacks
    are all position problems, the poision spray, the swoop, the breath beam, and
    the
    thunder-from-out-of-nowhere-but-looks-like-it-comes-from-the-skulls-brainstem.
      To dodge them all simply stay BEHIND her at all times, double jumping and
    whipping her when you have the chance.  When she turns around, you can easily
    time it so you run under her between lightning shoots, so you are never in
    front of her at all.
    
     Hugh - Two parts
     1.  Use you best STR boosting combo, run away from him so he follows you,
    stop, jump over him and whip him on the way down, rinse, lather, repeat. 
    Simple. 
     2.  If you ever get wounded badly, which isn't to rare, Roc jump to the top
    most ledge on either side of the room and use the heal combo (Venus/Mandragora
    I think) and wait.  The only thing that can hit you while up there is his
    homing sword-spirit attack, which he can only use after the mid-battle
    charge-up, can be dodged by cranking the volume so you can hear the destinctive
    sound that accompanies it, then waiting for the swords to apper on the bottom
    edge of the screen before double-jumping/Roc jumping to the identical platfrom
    on the other side (they don't home well).  Use Jupiter/Serpent to protect you
    if the persist.  When you are healed, jump down and repeat the first part of
    this procedure
    
    Love the FAQ, keep it up

    Hey, I've been reading your guide on Circle of the
     Moon and it's the best I've seen around!
    
     Anyway, I have some more DSS combos for you. Hope you
     like 'em (composed them myself, you know :)!
    
     Note: With certain combos, I added bits of info I've
     noticed. Even if someone gives you a full list before
     this gets to you, you might want to look it over.
    
     Mercury + Salamander - Fire whip, though later, it
     actually REDUCES attack effectiveness!
    
     Mercury + Serpent - Ice whip. As an enemy is about to
     die, it freezes and you can use it as a platform.
    
     Mercury + Golem - Earth whip. Longer, but not really
     stronger. Used to attack distant enemies.
    
     Mercury + Cockatrice - Stone whip. Like Mercury +
     Serpent, it can turn enemies to stone platforms.
    
     Mercury + Manticore - Angled up and forward whip that
     releases a mist of poison.
    
     Mercury + Griffin - Wind whip that rapid-fires when
     held.
    
     Mercury + Thunderbird - Electric whip that stays out
     and shocks when held.
    
     Venus + Salamander - Inflicted damage increases by
     25%.
    
     Venus + Serpent - Defense increases by 25%.
    
     Venus + Golem - Defense increases the exact % of the
     map you have cleared.
    
     Venus + Cockatrice - Gains experience from walking,
     though not very useful if not used all the time.
    
     Venus + Manticore - Gains double the amount of hearts
     received.
    
     Venus + Griffin - Intelligence increases by 25%.
    
     Venus + Thunderbird - Inflicted damage increases the
     exact % of the map you have cleared.
    
     Jupiter + Salamander - 2 fireballs circle you in
     defense. I've found this very useful, as it hits with
     your own whip's effectiveness!
    
     Jupiter + Serpent - 4 ice balls circle you in defense.
     These can freeze enemies.
    
     Jupiter + Golem - If damaged, the invincibility
     duration is 4 times longer.
    
     Jupiter + Cockatrice - Transform into stone and become
     invulnerable.
    
     Jupiter + Manticore - A cloud of poison spreads to
     protect you. Not much damage, but protects well from
     spirits.
    
     Jupiter + Griffin - While dashing, a sonic wave
     appears to protect you.
    
     Jupiter + Thunderbird - You will be sent flying when
     damaged, but you only receive 1/2 damage.
    
     Mars + Salamander - Attack with a fire sword.
    
     Mars + Serpent - Attack with an ice sword. Can freeze
     enemies.
    
     Mars + Golem - Attack with a massive hammer. Causes
     earthquakes. Slow, though.
    
     Mars + Cockatrice - Attack with tonfers. Can turn
     enemies into stone.
    
     Mars + Manticore - Attack with poison claws.
    
     Mars + Griffin - Sword draw. Holding attack longer
     will inflict more damage.
    
     Mars + Thunderbird - Martial arts. Hold attack to
     perform combinations.
    
     Diana + Salamander - A fireball is released with each
     attack.
    
     Diana + Serpent - 3 slivers of ice are released with
     each attack.
    
     Diana + Golem - A quake is released with each attack.
    
     Diana + Cockatrice - 3 rocks are fired with each
     attack.
    
     Diana + Manticore - When the whip is swung upward, a
     ball of poison will come out.
    
     Diana + Griffin - A wind wave is unleashed with each
     attack.
    
     Diana + Thunderbird - Electricity fills the air when
     the whip is spun.
    
     Neptune + Slamander - Fire attacks heal character
     while reducing MP.
    
     Neptune + Serpent - See above, but it's ice attacks
     instead.
    
     Neptune + Golem - Earth attacks this time.
    
     Neptune + Cockatrice - Ditto, but stone attacks.
    
     Neptune + Manticore - See above, but with poison.
     NEXT!
    
     Neptune + Griffin - Same, but with wind.
    
     Neptune + Thunderbird - Electric attacks heal with
     this combo.

    Huzzah! I saw your FAQ and though I'd give you a reader's tip!
     (^_^)
    
     Ok, when fighting Camilla, I found it most useful to not only have the
     Jupiter + Serpent DSS combo working (you know, the one where you are
     protected with 4 balls of ice), but to also have Axes to help defeat
     her. .... The Ice Balls spin faster than the the other great balls of
     fire, thus protecting you from ALL those damn little purple balls of
     death she throws at you (which is a good thing). The Axes are useful for
     pelting her from above. You don't need to worry about attacking her from
     below or anything, all you need to do is stay on the top most pillars,
     aim for her general location, and keep tossin' those axes. It may be a
     tad slower than a full frontal attack, but you take very little damage,
     which is useful if you don't have any/many Potions, etc.
    
     OK, that's my reader's tip. Toodlie pipski!

    2nd Battle Arena cheat: This is a way to re-do the last 3 rooms(or all of 
    them)   in  the Battle  Arena! When you are in the room with the Shinning
    Armor,     stand in the middle of the exit and the left side of the armor
    stand. Face   left and slide. If done correctly, you can turn around and slide
    back in! All of  the doors will be open, so you can re-do as many rooms as you
    want from end to  start! Very useful for the Unicorn and Black Dog cards.

    hey psychopenguin!
    
       Your strategy guide for Castlevania:Circle of the Moon was great!  I
     did, however, want to correct some parts,  and an extremely easy way to
     beat the Dragon Zombies.
    
     first off, you said you get Apollo from an Arch Demon in the Machine
     Tower.  However, there is no Arch Demon there.  I think you mean from an
     Arch Demon in the Underground Warehouse.
    
     To beat the Dragon Zombies very easy (I know you've heard this one
     before, but take this for example: I beat them using this technique on my
     second try. I was level 28.)
     When you enter, use Mars/Mandragora (the rose sword). Slide and crouch
     beneath the neck of the left dragon. The only thing that might hit you
     here are the rocks. When the Dragon gives you an opening, run out and
     keep hitting him on the head with the rose sword until he starts to do
     something dangerous, then go back to your hiding spot and wait. Do this
     until he dies, then go open up a can on the other one in a similar
     manner. Oh, and if you must heal, go ahead and use Jupiter/Mandragora but
     use the door to the treasure, not the one you entered through, nothing
     will hit you here.
    
     I have yet to collect Unicorn and Black Dog, but as soon as I do, be
     prepared to get a list of combos from me.

     Hey, what up man. I want to tell you an easier way to kill them Twin Zombie
    Dragons (damn, that was a bitch though) and Camilla and Death.
    
         You have got to have the Diana and Mandragora cards though, and have the
    axe as your special weapon.  I was only level 26 or 27 when I beat them.  Beat
    Camilla at level 29.  Beat Death at 32.
    
         Stand in the bottom middle platform and use the Diana/Mandragora card
    combination and attack the left one first.  It took me 2 Mind Restores to beat
    lefty and then I ran out and used the axes.  After lefty died I attacked when
    the other one was regaining health, but not with Diana/Mandragora card
    combination, at least until you get it at full again, you want to attack with a
    normal whip attack, and axes.
    
         Camilla you want to use the Jupiter/Serpent card combinations.  Stand on
    the top middle platform, and just make sure to spin your whip non-stop.  Don't
    hit her with it though, because it makes you do less damage.
    
         Death is the easiest of all baddies.  Just use the Jupiter/Manticore card
    combination, and have the Boomerang Crucifix and attack with that and the
    whip.  Took me literally 1 minute and 42 seconds total to beat both forms.
    
     My AIM name is funyollaii, contact me if you want more card combinations and
    stuff.  You are cool helping people like me with your game guide.

     noticed you didnt have ANY combos with the griffen card, so here are some.
    
    Mercury + Griffen = a rapid-attack whip, but lowers strength by about 30
    
    Venus + Griffen = some sort of sheild which increases intelligence
    
    Jupiter + Griffen = a rushing batering-ram attack
    
    Mars + Griffen = a small blade attack
    
    Diana + Griffen = Shoots an arrow-like projectile which consumes mana quickly
    
    Apollo + Griffen = Im not sure what this does, but it seems to recover mana
    more quickly
    
    Neptune + Griffen = Doesnt seem to do anything, but consumes mana
    
    Saturn + Griffen = Summons a little green fairy which shoots fireballs when
    whip is used
    
    Uranus + Griffen = does nothing
    
    Pluto + Griffen = Increased speed and jump
    
    Hope this helps !

    Hi...I've been reading your FAQ guide for C:COTM and by far it's the best I've
    seen.
    
    Well there's a way to kill the dragon zombies easily. I was lvl 23 when I did
    this and i took almost no dam. at all. All you have to do is attack the left
    one first because of his fireball spray. Stay to the left of him and just keep
    double jumping and attacking until you notice his head swing to the right. This
    means that he's going to knock his head against the wall to knock those stones
    from the ceiling. just stay to the very left and attack him when he does that.
    After that, slide twice to the right because he moves his head downwards after
    that. Then when he brings it back up, repeat. He rotates his head a full circle
    when you knock out half of his health, so get ready to double jump to the 
    middle
    platform, dash double jump to the platform on the upper left and drop down to
    the bottom left again. After he's dead, attack the other dragon zombie using
    the same strategy except in the opposite direction. After awhile, they should
    be both dead. I only got damaged when the right dragon zombie rotated his head.
    Thanks for your time.
