         Version 1.0: Just finished making the walkthrough for the game,
         and submitted it to GameFAQS (03/24/08)
    
          -----------------------------------------
      B: |The Story Of Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest|
          -----------------------------------------
    
         Taken straight from the game (not much of a story mind you):
    
            "Prologue. Step into the shadows of the hell house. You've
            arrived back here at Transylvania on business. To destroy
            forever the curse of the even Count, Dracula."
    
          ------------------------------------
      C: |What Is Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest|
          ------------------------------------
    
         Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest is the sequel of the original
         Castlevania game. It's actually a pretty fun game full of
         adventure. However this game is quite different than the other
         early Castlevania games, and that is because it has some RPG
         elements thrown in. It also has some back and forth traveling
         between towns and mansions, because you must collect all of
         Dracula's parts just so you can finally defeat him in his own
         territory at Castlevania. Can you do it?!
    
          ----------------------
      D: |About This Walkthrough|
          ----------------------
    
         Several times throughout the walkthrough I will probably repeat
         myself. A few times would possibly be necessary, such as a Boss
         guide, as well as a few other things. Sometimes I do this without
         even realizing it, and sometimes I do it to make it easier for
         people to find what they are looking for on this walkthrough. This
         guide, like others, is described on how I played/beat the game.
         You have your methods as do I. This is just my way of doing it. I
         hope this helps out in anyways possible.
    
          ---------------------
      E: |Control Configuration|
          ---------------------
    
         These are the basic controls for the game:
    
            START BUTTON: Brings up Status Screen/Pauses game
            SELECT BUTTON: Pauses game
            LEFT & RIGHT D-PAD: Moves left or right
            UP D-PAD: Climbs up stairs

            UP D-PAD & 'B' BUTTON: Allows you to use Secondary Weapons
    
          -------------
      F: |Status Screen|
          -------------
    
         This is glance at the Status Screen (when you press the START
         Button :P) and some info about it:
    
         As you can see there are four sections to the Status Screen. The
         top screen has your basic status which is broken down like this:
    
            1. T (Time) - This shows how much gameplay time you've put into
               the game.
    
            2. E (Experience) - This shows how        -------------------
               much experience you've gained         | T -         12:01 |
               from defeating monsters, though       | E - 0000   L - 00 |
               overtime you won't get any which      | H - 0050          |
               makes getting experience tricky.      |-------------------|
                                                     | L. WHIP           |
            3. L (Level) - This shows what           |-------------------|
               you're current level is. Of           |                   |
               course, the higher the level the      |                   |
               stronger you are. Once you gain       |-------------------|
               enough experience, you will level     |                   |
               up (but your experience will          |                   |
               reset back to 0). The highest         |                   |
               level is Level 6.                      -------------------
    
            4. H (Heart) - This shows how many Hearts you have. You can use
               these as ammo for some of your secondary weapons, or as
               currency so you can buy stuff.
    
         The second section shows you what your current whip you have is,
         as well as what Important Item you have. Those items are: Leather
         Whip, Thorn Whip, Chain Whip, Morning Star, Flame Whip, Silk Bag
         and Magic Cross.
    
         The third section shows you what Game Story Items you have. Those
         items are: Dracula's Rib, Dracula's Heart, Dracula's Eyeball,
         Dracula's Nail, Dracula's Ring, White Crystal, Red Crystal and
         Blue Crystal (when you get a new Crystal, it will replace the old
         one).
    
         The fourth section shows you what Secondary Weapons you have.
         Dagger, Silver Knife, Golden Knife, Holy Water, Diamond, Sacred
         Flame, Oak Stage, Laurels and Garlic.

    SECTION 2: |WALKTHROUGH|
                -----------
    
          ----------------------
      A: |Before The Walkthrough|
          ----------------------
    
         1. Throughout the game, every few minutes or so, you will get a
            message saying "What a horrible night to have a curse". If you
            don't know what this means, FOR SHAME ON YOU ^_^!! But
            seriously it means that day will become night and the monsters
            will be twice as strong. Not only that, villagers will go into
            their homes and Hag Witches will come out. Now after a few
            minutes of nighttime, it will become daytime. When that
            happens, 1 full Game Day has passed. Keep this in mind as it
            will unlock one of three endings to the game (explained at the
            end of this walkthrough). Time will stop when you go into the
            mansions.
    
         2. Speaking of day/night, I won't tell you when nighttime or
            daytime happens, so just be ready for them when they do happen.
            If you are in a town and it's nightfall, all the doors will be
            closed up but the doors leading to the mansions will still be
            opened.
    
         3. When leveling up, there really is no tip because getting
            experience is not easy as you play through the latter portions
            of the game. As you progress, most monsters will not give you
            experience as they once did. Pace yourself with leveling up
            however, or the rest of the game won't be much of a
            challenge ^_^.
    
         4. And of course, what walkthroughs (made by me) wouldn't be
            complete without maps right ^_^? The maps I made will only
            show how to get from one mansion to the next (or the starting
            point to the first mansion). These maps will coincide with the
            walkthrough shown below each of them. This is done so it will
            make it easier for you to navigate through the game. I will
            also put a link to each of the mansion maps I have made.

            LEGEND:
            [01] = Starting Point/Town Of Jova
            [06] = Town Of Veros
            [10] = Castle 1: Berkeley Mansion
    
            SCREEN 01:
            Here we go, the start of the game! You start off at the highest
            point of the Town Of Jova.
    
               T O W N  O F  J O V A :
               ITEMS: Holy Water, White Crystal, Thorn Whip
    
               Welcome to your first town, Town Of Jova. From where you
               start off at, head right all the way to the otherside.
               Please note the door with the cross that you passed up. It's
               a Church, and it will refill your life. At the otherside,
               head down the stairs, and you'll see a Cloaked Man coming
               towards you. He'll offer you a White Crystal for 50 Hearts,
               and since you have 50 Hearts, go ahead and snatch it from
               him ^_^. Head down the stairs below him and at the bottom
               floor, head right leading to SCREEN 02. Don't get too comfy
               though, just kill a few enemies and head back to town.
    
               Repeat this until you get 150 Hearts, then back into town.
               This time head up the stairs to where the Cloaked Man is, to
               find a door. Enter it and you'll see another Cloaked Man who
               will offer you Holy Water for 50 Hearts, which you will
               take. Now head outside this room, and walk left to the
               ledge. Jump left to a lower ledge and head left to a door.
               Enter it to find another Cloaked Man who will offer you the
               Thorn Whip for 100 Hearts. Also talk to everyone for
               valuable info, including about a sacred flame. Now you're
               ready to move on!
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head to the right
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 02.
    
            SCREEN 02:
            From where you start off here, head right taking out any of the
            Blue Wolfman and Blue Skeletons that may be in your way. Also
            keep your Holy Water equipped because you can use it on
            monsters that are on a lower level than you. After you get
            through all of this, head through the rightside which will take
            you to SCREEN 03.
    
            SCREEN 03:
            On this screen, head right, killing the Blue Skeletons and jump
            to the upper floor. A Red Sea Creature will jump out of the
            water, so be ready! After that, jump over the several opened
            gaps until you reach the otherside. This may be tricky for
            beginners because of the Red Sea Creatures jumping out of the
            water and shooting fireballs, but persistance pays off ^_^. At
            the otherside, take out the Blue Skeleton and follow the path
            through the right entryway leading to SCREEN 04.
    
            SCREEN 04:
            For this screen, you can do this one of two ways: the upper
            path and the lower path. Either way won't matter because you'll
            end up at the same place. If you take the upper path, climb up
            the platform stairs and take the upper path to the otherside
            taking out any Blue Skeletons. If you take the lower path, use
            your Holy Water to take out the lower platform (of the stairs)
            and head right, jumping over the pink acid lake and taking out
            the Blue Skeletons. Once past this, climb up the staircase then
            at the upper path head right. Either way you take, head right
            and keep going through the right entryway. This will take you
            to SCREEN 05.
    
            SCREEN 05:
            Right away you will see some Blue Skeletons, and a staircase
            leading downwards. Go down the staircase (don't worry about
            going right, I'll get to that later) and at the bottom, just
            head right with no worries as there are no enemies down here.
            Before going through the right entryway, make sure you have
            atleast 200 Hearts. If you don't, go back and get some. If you
            do, proceed onwards through the right entryway, taking you
            to SCREEN 06.
    
            SCREEN 06:
            As you start this screen, you will notice you're in a town.
            This one is called Town Of Veros.
    
               T O W N  O F  V E R O S :
               ITEMS: Chain Whip, Dagger
    
               In this short town, jump over the small gap and enter the
               door you see. In here, you see well nothing but an empty
               room. So what's the point of being in here? Well head over
               to the right wall and use your Holy Water on it to reveal a
               secret passage. Enter it and you will see a Cloaked Man who
               will sell you the Dagger for 50 Hearts. Go ahead and buy
               this so you will have another weapon at your disposal. Now
               head back out of these rooms and into town. Jump over the
               gap and keep going right. There's a Church in the middle if
               you need to refill your life. After that, keep going right,
               talking to all of the villagers who will give you info on
               various things including Laurels.
    
               Once you finally make it to the otherside, head up the short
               staircase and into the doorway. In here is another empty
               room, but this time, stand at the fourth block and use your
               Holy Water on the floor to reveal another secret passage.
               Make your way down the platforms and then down the stairs,
               where you will see another Cloaked Man. This one will offer
               you the Chain Whip for 150 Hearts, which you will gladly
               take. With those purchases made, head back outside of these
               rooms back to the town. Now we are ready to move on!
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head to the right
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 07.
    
            SCREEN 07:
            As you begin this screen, you will see a Red Eyeball coming
            down and some Gray Skeletons ahead of you. Carefully take out
            the Red Eyeball first, then the Gray Skeletons as you jump from
            platform to platform above the pink acid lake. Make it to the
            otherside of this, then climb the short staircase, and make
            your way to the long platform above where you are. When you do,
            climb up the staircase and two Red Eyeballs will come out. At
            the top of that staircase, climb up the next one and then at
            the top of that (Red Eyeball in the way), head left and follow
            the path taking out the Red Eyeball until you reach the left
            entryway. Go through it and you will then be at SCREEN 08.
    
            SCREEN 08:
            For this screen, head left taking out the Gray Skeleton and
            Spider then continue onwards. Simply head left to the
            otherside, avoiding the Spiders and taking out the Gray
            Skeletons. Once you make it to the otherside, head through the
            left entryway leading to SCREEN 09.
    
            SCREEN 09:
            Once entering here, you have two choices: the upper path or the
            lower path. It's probably easy to take the upper path, so by
            doing so, head up the stairs (taking out any Gray Skeletons),
            and then just continue going left. As you do, more Gray
            Skeletons as well as Flying Bats, so make sure you get around
            all of this. Once you do, head to the left edge, use a Holy
            Water on the lower Gray Skeleton, and then head for the ground
            level. Keep going left after this, taking out the remaining
            Gray Skeletons and then go through the left entryway, which
            will take you to SCREEN 10.
    
            SCREEN 10:
            Upon entering here, you will see a door in the middle. Now get
            your White Crystal equipped and if you're at Level 2, you're
            good to go. Now enter the door and get ready because you're
            entering Castle 1!

            S E C T I O N  1 - 1 :
            Here we go, the first castle! Now remember how I said you
            should equip the White Crystal first? Well as you see, there's
            a moving platform that will appear when you equip it. With
            that, get on it and jump onto the lone platform at the top. Use
            your Dagger to take out the Blue Lance Knight. Get onto the
            flooring and continue going right (taking out the Blue Skeleton
            Solider) and you will find two staircases (one going up and one
            going down). Take the one going up and climb it. Once at the
            top, head left and you will see some Blue Gels and Green
            Gargoyles. Take these out if you want and make it to the
            otherside. When you do, there will be a Blue Skeleton Solider
            on an upper platform. Take it out and make your way up these
            platforms to the top (where another one and a Blue Lance Knight
            is waiting). Now up here, you can either go up the staircase or
            go right, it really don't matter which way you go, so let's
            just go right.
    
            Along here are some Blue Gels, so be ready (and at top is some
            Blue Skeleton Soliders). Make your way right and you will see
            some spike pits. Jump over them and continue going right until
            you get to the wall (use the Dagger to take out anything in
            your way). Use the Holy Water on the wall to reveal a book.
            This is Clue #1 and it will say "A symbol of evil will appear
            when you strike the stake". Worry about the meaning later,
            right now head left all the way to that staircase from earlier.
            When you get to it, climb up it and head right, taking out the
            Blue Skeleton Soliders along the way. Now here's the catch, at
            the end of this long platform, it would appear you could jump
            over to the next one easily. Well you're wrong, because the
            edge of the next one is fake, so you have to jump over the
            first two blocks. When you do, continue going right until you
            reach the entryway. Go through that and you will be
            in SECTION 1-2.
    
            S E C T I O N  1 - 2 :
            Upon entering here, head right and you will see some Blue Bone
            Tossers, so use your Dagger on them. After that, simply make it
            all the way to the otherside and drop down to the lower level,
            then once down there, head down the down staircase you see.
            Down here, head left and continue taking out the Blue Skeleton
            Soliders. At the otherside, you should see a staircase going
            upwards. Take it and continue going left, jumping across the
            spike pits. You will then see a Cloaked Man who will offer you
            Oak Stakes for 50 Hearts, so take the offer. Now jump left
            again and use the Holy Water on the wall, which will reveal a
            book which is Clue #2. This one will say "Destroy the curse and
            you'll rule Brahm's Mansion". Of course in this walkthrough, I
            spelled it as "Braham", but who cares, not me! Anyways, with
            that, go back right, jumping over the spike pits and to that
            staircase you used.
    
            Climb down it, then the staircase below that and go right until
            you reach the wall. A Blue Gel will be here, so take it out and
            use Holy Water on the wall, to reveal another book which is
            Clue #3. This one says "A flame flickers inside the ring of
            fire". Boy, this line sounds familiar O_o. Anyways back to the
            staircase, and now take the lower one leading down (I know I
            forgot to put that on my map, my bad!). Down here is a Blue
            Bone Tosser, so be ready. Now head right but be careful as part
            of the floor is fake. Which part, well count the blocks in the
            floor. The tenth and eleventh blocks are fake. If you fall
            through them, you will have to make your way back to the start
            of this mess (look at my map to get back to here). Jump over
            these blocks and then continue going right, taking out the Blue
            Skeleton Soliders.
    
            Now climb up the staircase and keep going right and you will
            see an orb of flashing light. Equip your Oak Stake and use it
            on the orb, which will cause the room to shake and a flashing
            bag to appear. You will now prossess Dracula's Rib (Prossess,
            has Konami ever heard of a dictionary before?!). Anyways with
            that, we can now get out of here! Head left, over the edge and
            to the fake blocks and drop through them (it's safe). Now
            carefully jump over to the lone left lower block then over to
            the flooring. There are Blue Lance Knights and Green Gargoyles
            here, so be ready. After that, just continue going left along
            this until you reach the otherside. Once you do, go through the
            left entryway and you will be back in SECTION 1-1.
    
            S E C T I O N  1 - 1 : (REVISITED)
            Once back here, head left, taking out the Blue Skeleton
            Soliders and Green Gargoyles until you reach a staircase. Climb
            up it and then head left at the top of it. Take out the extra
            Blue Skeleton Soliders and then the Blue Lance Knight. After
            that, jump to the lower platform, then to the next lower
            platform and drop through the crack between blocks. You will
            notice that you're back at the start of this castle, so head
            left and you will have completed Castle 1!

            [16] = Town Of Aljiba
            [17] = ITEM: Silver Knife (use Garlic)
            [20] = Castle 2: Rover Mansion
    
            SCREEN 10:
            You should now be outside of Castle 1, pat yourself on the
            back. With that out of the way, you can move onto Castle 2, but
            first, there are some things that needs to be done. For
            starters, let's head through the right entryway, which will
            lead to SCREEN 09.
    
            SCREEN 09:
            In here again, simply head right killing the Gray Skeletons and
            Flying Bats. Once you make it to a platform staircase, head up
            them and continue going right taking out the Gray Skeletons.
            Continue going right until you get to the entryway. Go through
            it and you will be back at SCREEN 08.
    
            SCREEN 08:
            Like before, just head right, getting past the Spiders and Gray
            Skeletons. Once at the otherside, head through the right
            entryway leading back to SCREEN 07.
    
            SCREEN 07:
            Once you are here again, simply head right, taking out any Red
            Eyeballs in your way. At the otherside, ignore the staircase
            and go through the right entryway, taking you to SCREEN 11.
    
            SCREEN 12:
            In this new screen, Flying Bats and Red Eyeballs will come out
            to greet you, so quickly take them out. After this, simply walk
            right and down the platform stairs. Now don't leave the screen
            just yet. As you are on the bottom floor, use your Holy Water
            to take out the lower platform. You can now proceed left, so do
            so and go all the way to the otherside. More Flying Bats and
            Red Eyeballs will come out to play so be ready. At the
            otherside, use your Holy Water on the two blocks next to the
            wall and you will notice a flame just flaming away. Get that
            and you will now possess the Sacred Flame (do they realize that
            it's spelled "possess"?). Anyways, this is another Secondary
            Weapon which will be of great use, and will only cost 1 Heart
            to use. Now with that, head right to where you destroyed the
            platform. Go right past this through the right entryway, which
            will take you to SCREEN 13.
    
            SCREEN 13:
            In here you will see Gray Skeletons and Spiders, so equip your
            Sacred Flame to give it a good test run. Make your way across
            this bridge like structure and then continue onwards to the
            otherside (more Gray Skeletons). Go through the right entryway
            and it will take you to SCREEN 14.
    
            SCREEN 14:
            Get ready as a Gray Skeleton will come at you right away. After
            that will be a staircase going down, but ignore that for the
            time being. Instead head right, taking out any Gray Skeletons
            along the way. Now go through the right entryway which will
            take you to SCREEN 15.
    
            SCREEN 15:
            Spiders and Gray Skeletons are in here, so just make your way
            to the otherside like before (nothing too fancy here). When you
            do, go through the right entryway again, which will take you
            to SCREEN 16.
    
            SCREEN 16:
            As you start this screen, you will notice you're in a town.
            This one is called Town Of Aljiba.
    
               T O W N  O F  A L J I B A :
               ITEMS: Garlic, Laurels, Blue Crystal
    
               Here we are with another town. Jump over the gap and go into
               the door. Looks like no one's home here, or that's what they
               want us to think. Equip your Holy Water and use it on the
               floor to reveal a secret passage. With that, make your way
               downwards until you see a Cloaked Man. What does he have to
               offer you now, well, how about some Garlic for 50 Hearts?
               Seeing as you shuold have that much, go ahead and buy some.
               Who knows what use they'll have. Now head back out to the
               town and jump over the right gap. Go right and into the next
               door, where it will appear that this one is empty too. But
               we can fix that by using Holy Water on the floor revealing
               another secret passage.
    
               With that out of the way, head down to the lowest part of
               this room and you will see an opening to the right. Go
               through it to find an old woman, who tells you that
               "Dracula's eyeball reflects the curse". All the work just to
               hear a clue, it has to be important, but how. Anyways make
               your way back out to the town and continue going right. At
               the otherside, jump over the gaps and climb up the staircase
               and enter the door you see and find another empty room. What
               is this with empty places and secret passages? Oh well, like
               before, use Holy Water on the floor and head down to the
               lowest level, and then through the right opening.
    
               Inside is a Cloaked Man who will now offer you Laurels for
               50 Hearts. I'd say go for it if you don't have any. Back out
               to the town, head up the nearby staircase and at the top,
               follow the pathway left all the way until you reach a Gray
               man. Talk to him and he will offer you the Blue Crystal for
               your White Crystal. What a trade! Now head back right to the
               staircase, and go down it. Then go down the other staircase
               and ignore the right entryway for now, as it would lead to a
               dead end of sorts. So instead head left to the otherside of
               town until you reach the left entryway. Now we are ready to
               move on!
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head through the right
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 17.
    
            SCREEN 17:
            Upon entering here, you will see some Purple Soul Grabbers. Go
            up to the first one and equip your Garlic and use it (UP & 'B'
            BUTTON) and an orange Cloaked Man will appear. Go up to him and
            talk to him and he will offer you the Silver Knife and for you
            to use it save your neck! These are a bit more powerful than
            Daggers, but they will cost 1 Heart per use. Now with that, if
            you go right, you will see you can't go any further, so go back
            left to SCREEN 16.
    
            SCREEN 16:
            Upon entering here, you have returned to the Town Of Aljiba.
    
               T O W N  O F  A L J I B A  (REIVISTED):
               ITEMS: None
    
               Guess what, there's nothing you need to do here, so just
               make it to the otherside of town.
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head through the left
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 15.
    
            SCREEN 15:
            Just like before, Gray Skeletons and Spiders are here, so just
            make it to the otherside and go through the left entryway,
            taking you to SCREEN 14.
    
            SCREEN 14:
            In here, like before, is Gray Skeletons. Take out any in your
            way and make it to the staircase. Go down the staircase all the
            way and once you reach the bottom, head right and through the
            right entryway. This will take you to SCREEN 18.
    
            SCREEN 18:
            For this one will be more Gray Skeletons and some Red Eyeballs,
            so get ready to take them out. To get through here, simply go
            right until you reach a staircase. Just past that is a lone
            block which you need to get on and then the upper platform just
            past that (trust me, this way is much easier). Take out any
            Gray Skeletons you see, and at the otherside drop down to the
            main level and head through the right entryway, which will take
            you to SCREEN 19.
    
            SCREEN 19:
            Okay you will now see a large body of water. So like WTF are we
            suppose to do now? Well, equip your Blue Crystal and crouch
            down and hold it for a few seconds (toilet humor perhaps?) and
            the screen will then scroll down revealing a hidden cavern.
            Keep in mind, you must do this each time or else if you jump
            into the water you will die. Now climb downwards until you
            reach the staircase. Don't bother with going down the stairs,
            instead drop off the rightside of the stairs and then continue
            going right. Go into the right entryway and you will then be
            at SCREEN 20.
    
            SCREEN 20:
            Upon entering here, you will see a door in the middle. Make
            sure you're at Level 3, as a safe place to be for stats. Now
            enter the door and get ready because you're entering Castle 2!

            S E C T I O N  2 - 1 :
            Welcome to the Rover Mansion, and it's tougher than the first
            castle. Right away you will be greeted by a Blue Lance Knight
            and a Blue Bone Tosser. You will also see a staircase, which
            you need to climb up. At the top is another Blue Bone Tosser,
            so take it out. Now head right all the way to the edge and up
            the platform staircase you see. After that, jump down to the
            lower right platform, and the from there, jump down to the
            island platform between the two gaps. Now that you're on here,
            jump over to the right wall. Don't worry it's safe, because
            it's a fake wall, and you will land safely on the small
            flooring it's connected to. Now jump over to the right and head
            through the entryway, leading to the next section.
            Incidentally, there is alot more to SECTION 2-1, including
            Small Bats and Blue Gargoyles, but it's not necessary to go
            through, so explore on your own, I'm moving on to SECTION 2-2.
    
            S E C T I O N  2 - 2 :
            Upon entering here, you will instantly see a couple Blue Bone
            Tossers, so use your Dagger to take them out. After that, jump
            over the few gaps you see. Once past that, head over to the
            staircase and ignore it for now, and head past it. You will
            come to an upper long platform over a long gap. Jump up to it
            but be careful because a moving block will push back and forth,
            and if you're caught in it, it will push you into the gap
            below. Get past that and jump to the lower pathway on the
            otherside. A Blue Bone Tosser will be here as well as spike
            gaps. Also here is an Cloaked Man, which will offer you Oak
            Stakes for 50 Hearts. Now that you got that, jump back over to
            the long platform and then jump on the moving block and onto
            the shorter platform above it. Once there, jump  to the upper
            platform on the right. Now head to the lower platform on the
            right. Here's the deal with this, there are some fake floors
            here. How can you tell, well see where the gate is in the
            background. The floor underneath each of the gates along here
            is fake, so jump over them.
    
            Now equip the Holy Water and use it on the right wall. Doing so
            will reveal a book which holds Clue #1, and it says "Destroy
            the curse with Dracula's Heart". After that, head left and make
            your way to the moving block area, then left to the staircase
            from earlier. Once there, climb up the staircase and take out
            the Blue Bone Tosser. Climb up the next staircase, and then the
            staircase after that, taking out any Blue Bone Tossers in your
            way. Once you make it up the staircases, head right down the
            platforms until you reach the next staircase. Now climb up it
            and head left a bit. Notice how the upper areas has some
            platforms sticking out, well climb up them. This will be a very
            tricky climb because you have to stand at a certain spot to
            make it up them, or else you'll fall to the flooring below.
            Once you carefully make your way this area and at the top head
            right. You will come across some Blue Bone Tossers and Blue
            Lance Knight along the way, so take them out. Make it past the
            staircase and to the right wall.
    
            Once there, use your Holy Water on it and doing so will reveal
            another book which has Clue #2 in it. The clue says "Garlic in
            the graveyard summons a stranger". I wonder if this has
            anything to do with that graveyard next to the Town Of Aljiba
            O_o. Anyways, after this, head to the staircase and go down it
            and at the bottom, head left until you reach the opening in the
            floor. From there, drop down all the way and once you reach the
            bottom, head right. Jump up the platforms and you will see an
            orb. Equip your Oak Stake and strike the orb with it. Again the
            room will shake an bag will appear, so get it and you will
            prossess Dracula's Heart! Well, two pieces down, three to go!
            With that, head left and make it back up to the previous
            staircase. Climb it, head left to the otherside and drop down
            and you will land right next to the lower part of a staircase.
            Head left across the platforms then down the staircase, then
            the one after that. Go right from there and down the next
            staircase. Head left, and jump over the several gaps (watch out
            for the Blue Bone Tossers) and head through the left entryway,
            which will take you back to SECTION 2-1.
    
            S E C T I O N  2 - 1 : (REVISITED)
            Once you are back here, head left and jump over the gap then
            jump to the upper island then jump to the lower floor on the
            left. After that, continue going left, taking out the Blue Bone
            Tossers and the Blue Lance Knight. Now go through the left
            entryway and you will have completed Castle 2!

            LEGEND:
            [01] = Town Of Jova
            [10] = Castle 1: Berkeley Mansion
            [16] = Town Of Aljiba
            [20] = Castle 2: Rover Mansion
            [22] = Ferry Crossing (Equip Dracula's Heart to go to [23])
            [24] = Castle 3: Braham Mansion
    
            SCREEN 20:
            You should now be outside of Castle 2, but don't celebrate too
            much, you still got along way to go! With that out of the way,
            you can move onto Castle 3, but first, there are some things
            that needs to be done. For starters, let's head through the
            left entryway, which will lead to SCREEN 19.
    
            SCREEN 19:
            In here, head left and make your way across the two platforms
            to the staircase. At the staircase, climb up it and make your
            way up the platforms until you are above the water. Now head
            through the left entryway, taking you to SCREEN 18.
    
            SCREEN 18:
            Once here, this might be tricky. As you enter this screen you
            will see a moving platform ahead of you. Time your moves
            carefully, and use that platform to get to the otherside. When
            you do, you will see another one, so repeat the process. After
            that, continue going left along the lower level until you reach
            the otherside, taking out the Red Eyeballs and Gray Skeletons
            that may be in your way. Now go through the left entryway,
            which will take you to SCREEN 14.
    
            SCREEN 14:
            In here, head left climbing up the platforms until you reach
            the staircase. Now climb up it and take out the Gray Skeletons
            at the top. So now which way do we go? Well, I say let's go
            through the left entryway. Doing so will take you to SCREEN 13.
    
            SCREEN 13:
            A Gray Skeleton and Spider will greet you here, so get ready to
            take them out. After that, simply head left until you reach the
            otherside. Go into the left entryway, taking you to SCREEN 12.
    
            SCREEN 12:
            In here, climb up the platforms and follow the upper path to
            the otherside, taking out the Flying Bats and Red Eyeballs.
            Once at the otherside, head through the left entryway, taking
            you to SCREEN 07.
    
            SCREEN 07:
            For this screen, just stay along the upper path that you are
            on, as there is no need to go down the stairs. Red Eyeballs
            will be in your again, so take any out and head through the
            left entryway leading to SCREEN 08.
    
            SCREEN 08:
            In here, like before, head left to the otherside, taking out
            Gray Skeletons and Spiders. Go through the left entryway
            leading to SCREEN 09.
    
            SCREEN 09:
            In here, head up the staircase in front of you, and continue
            going left taking out the Gray Skeletons and Flying Bats. At
            the otherside, equip your Holy Water and take out the Gray
            Skeletons then drop down the platforms and keep going left.
            Again head through the left entryway, leading to SCREEN 10.
    
            SCREEN 10:
            Here you will be at the entrance of Castle 1, but you don't
            need to go here, so just continue going through the left
            entryway. You will then be at SCREEN 11.
    
            SCREEN 11:
            Although you've been on all the other screens (up to this
            point) so many times, this is the first time you will be on
            this one, even though it's in the same area roughly ^_^. You
            have Blue Skeletons on this screen, so once again (this is
            getting rather old) head left until you reach the otherside.
            Over here, a Red Sea Creature will jump out onto the brown
            platform, so use your Silver Knife to take it out from a
            distance. Now hop over the water pits and to the left entryway.
            Go through it and you will be at SCREEN 05.
    
            SCREEN 05:
            Once you are here, equip your Holy Water and use it on the Blue
            Skeletons and jump over the pink acid lake. Continue going
            left, past the staircase and through the left entryway, which
            will take you to SCREEN 04.
    
            SCREEN 04:
            Right away a Blue Skeleton will see you so quickly take it out.
            Now jump to the upper path and take out the other Blue
            Skeleton. Continue along this upper path until you reach the
            otherside, taking out anymore Blue Skeletons. Now go down the
            platforms and through the left entryway leading to SCREEN 03.
    
            SCREEN 03:
            In here, you need to make your way across this screen to the
            otherside like normal. Be careful though as there are several
            small gaps you must jump as well as Red Sea Creatures and Blue
            Skeletons being in your way. Equip your Silver Knife as it will
            become very helpful through this screen. Once you have
            carefully made it to the otherside, head through the left
            entryway and you will be at SCREEN 02.
    
            SCREEN 02:
            Easy enough on this screen, head right, taking out the Blue
            Skeletons, and eventually taking out the Blue Wolfmens. After
            that, head through the left entryway, which will take you
            to SCREEN 01.
    
            SCREEN 01:
            Upon entering here, you have returned to the Town Of Jova.
    
               T O W N  O F  J O V A (REVISITED):
               ITEMS: None
    
               Nothing really to do here, except that if you wanna refill
               your life, head to the Church on the top level (going up the
               staircases you see right away). After that though, on the
               main level, head left to the otherside, jumping over gaps,
               and go to the left side of town.
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head through the left
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 21.
    
            SCREEN 21:
            Okay now we are in some new areas! Time to build up some
            experience too! Right away you should see some Purple
            Lizardmens coming at you. Use your Silver Knife on them as it
            will be your best defense here. After that, continue onwards
            and you will see a Blue Fast Cat speeding by. With that,
            continue left and you will come to a pink acid lake. If you
            have a Laurel, now would be a great time to use it. You'll be
            able to cross here without taking damage. Be careful as there
            is some Blue Slime Creatures here and a  Leech at the otherside
            so take them out. At the otherside, go through the left
            entryway, which will take you to SCREEN 22.
    
            SCREEN 22:
            In here is some Red Lizardmens, so take them out (it's probably
            best to get up to Level 4) and continue onwards. After a bit
            you should come to a lake, with a Cloaked Man on a boat. Okay
            so what's this crazy person doing here?! Worry about that
            later? Either way, equip Dracula's Heart (gross much?) and talk
            to him. He will tell you that he will "show you the way", and
            will take you on a little trip, and as you are traveling with
            him, Red Sea Creatures will come out, so be ready because you
            can fall in the water if you're not careful. With that, you
            will travel through the left entrway, leading to SCREEN 23.
    
            SCREEN 23:
            As you're entering this screen, you will hear a strange sound.
            I suppose this means you're going the right way, so that means
            there must be a second way you could go?! We'll get to that
            later though. This screen however starts off the same way, Red
            Sea Creatures jumping up. Soon as you get to the docking point,
            jump off and continue onwards going left. Red Lizardmens will
            greet you once again, so take them out. Continue going left
            through the entryway and you will be at SCREEN 24.
    
            SCREEN 24:
            Upon entering here, you will see a door in the middle. Make
            sure you're at Level 4, as a safe place to be for stats. Now
            enter the door and get ready because you're entering Castle 3!

            S E C T I O N  3 - 1 :
            Okay here we go, the third castle! From the starting point,
            head right, jumping over the spike pits until you reach the
            otherside. Once you do, climb up the stairs and take out the
            Purple Lance Knight. After that, climb the staircase behind it
            and take out the Purple Skeleton Solider at the top. Climb the
            next staircase and another Purple Lance Knight will be up
            there, so take it out as well. Up here you will see you have
            two choices, going left, or going up. Don't go up because there
            is nothing up there, so instead head left. Purple Gels will be
            greeting you here, so take them out if you want and continue
            going left until you reach the otherside. At the otherside,
            climb up the staircase and take out the Purple Skeleton
            Solider, then climb up the next staircase (so many staircases,
            so little time!).
    
            At the top is another Purple Skeleton Solider, so take it out
            and this time go right and follow the path to the otherside.
            When you get there, you will see another staircase (shocking)
            and a Cloaked Man on the otherside of the wall. You'll get to
            him soon enough, but now climb the stairs. At the top of this
            staircase, there will be a few more Purple Skeleton Soliders,
            so take them out and climb the short staircase leading up. Up
            here a Purple Gargoyle and a Purple Lance Knight is waiting,
            so take them out quickly. Now you can either go left or right
            at this point, but you're gonna go right. Do so and at the
            otherside, go through the entryway which will take you
            to SECTION 3-2.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 2 :
            Upon entering here, there will be two Purple Gargoyles starting
            to attack, so use either your Holy Water or drop down and
            attack them. Either way take them out and head down the
            staircase at the bottom. Down here is a Purple Lance Knight, so
            be careful taking it out as there are also spike pits here.
            After taking it out, jump over the spike pits until you reach
            the wall (don't worry, I haven't forgot about the entryway).
            See the little opening, well drop down into that and use your
            Holy Water on the rightside. Doing so will reveal a book which
            is Clue #1. This clue will say "Wait for a soul with a Red
            Crystal on Deborah Cliff". Where is that at, well I guess that
            will be our next mission ^_^. Now jump back across the spike
            pits and go through the left entryway, which will take you back
            to SECTION 3-1.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 1 : (REVISITED)
            Upon entering here, you will see a Purple Lance Knight on a
            lower platform, so use your Holy Water on it to take it out.
            Now make your way to the Cloaked Man (the one from before), and
            talk to him. He will offer you some Oak Stakes for 50 Hearts,
            which I'm sure you have that many, so go ahead and jump on his
            offer. After doing that, drop down just to the right of him and
            you will probably land on a Purple Lance Knight (oops!), but no
            worries unless you don't have much life left O_o. Take that one
            out, and go down the staircase. Down here will be a Purple
            Skeleton Solider and another staircase. Go down it to find a
            Purple Gel and ANOTHER staircase. Go down those staircase to
            find another Purple Gel and an entryway to the right. Go
            through it and you will be at SECTION 3-3.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 3 :
            This is a very short section, which contains some Vampire Bats.
            Simply take them out and head through the right entryway which
            will take you to SECTION 3-4.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 4 :
            Well check it out, it looks like we finally get to fight Death.
            Get ready for the first boss fight in the game (took it long
            enough)!
    
               BOSS #1: GRIM REPEAR
               ITEM REQUIRED: Chain Whip & Sacred Flame
               ITEM RECEIVED: Golden Knife
               Here is how the fight will setup, Grim Repear will float
               around at a medium pace, throwing out his psycthes at you
               (doing little damage). These will take 2 hits with your
               Chain Whip. So what should you do? Well use a Laurel first
               (if you have any) so that you are given a little protection.
               Now equip your Sacred Flame and get him to stay in the
               middle part of the floor. With him there, use your Sacred
               Flame on him, which will do some decent damage to him (about
               3 or 4 hits). While he's being attacked by the flame, use
               your Chain Whip on him to do double damage. This is a great
               combo attack to take him down. After about 7 or 8 rounds of
               this he will fall.
    
            After the fight, you will be rewarded with the Golden Knife,
            which is a very powerful Secondary Weapon, but will take 2
            Hearts per use. Now, go through the right entryway which will
            take you SECTION 3-5.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 5 :
            In here you will see an orb on the otherside of the room. Go
            over, climb up to it and equip you your Oak Stake and strike
            the orb. Again the room will shake an bag will appear, so get
            it and you will posess, I mean "prossess" Dracula's Eyeball!
            Okay now it's getting really gross. Now head back through the
            left entryway leading back to SECTION 3-4.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 4 : (REVISITED)
            In here, you will see the Grim Repear again, but you don't have
            to fight him if you don't want to, so just head through the
            left entryway, leading back to SECTION 3-3.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 3 : (REVISITED)
            Back in the small little room with the Vampire Bats. Take them
            out if you want, and head through the left entryway, leading
            back to SECTION 3-1.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 1 : (REVISITED)
            Here we go again with the staircases, woo and hoo. Anyways,
            head over to the staircase (take out the Purple Gel) and climb
            up it. Continue going upwards the staircases, taking out any
            enemies in the way. Once you get to the highest point, take out
            the Purple Lance Knight. Now head over to the lowest right
            platform and get on it. Now this will be kinda tricky, you need
            to jump over to the higher platform, then to the next higher
            platform. Turn around, use a Golden Knife on the Purple Lance
            Knight then jump on that platform and head to the staircase. Go
            through the right entryway, taking you to SECTION 3-2.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 2 : (REVISITED)
            Upon entering here again, you will be greeted by a Purple Lance
            Knight, so take it out fast. After that, climb up the long
            staircase to the top. Up here is a couple Purple Gargoyles, so
            be quick about taking them out (use your Golden Knife). Now,
            head to the leftside, up the platforms and through the left
            entryway, taking you back to SECTION 3-1.
    
            S E C T I O N  3 - 1 : (REVISITED)
            Once again, you will be greeted by a Purple Lance Knight, so
            take it out and continue going left until you reach the
            staircase. Now you can go down it, but instead head left all
            the way to the otherside. While you're doing this, equip the
            Dracula's Eyeball. Now at the otherside, drop down and then
            walk left a bit more, and you will see a book within the
            blocks. Now to get to it, stand right on the fourth block from
            the edge, jump up and throw your Holy Water to the left. This
            should hit the top block, giving you access to the book. Doing
            so, and you will see Clue #2, which says "Place the Laurels in
            a silk bag to bring them to life". Okay, moving on! Take out
            the Purple Skeleton Solider and then drop down to the lowest
            level.
    
            Once down here, head down the staircase, take out the next
            Purple Skeleton Solider and then head down the next staircase
            (or drop down over the leftside). Down here, head right and
            follow the pathway all the way to the otherside, taking out the
            Purple Lance Knight, and then head down the staircase, take out
            the Purple Skeleton Solider then climb down the next staircase.
            Down here is a Purple Lance Knight, so take it out and go down
            the staircase. Now head left, and jump over all the spike pits
            until you reach the otherside. You will probably see an upper
            pathway that you could get to, but don't worry about that as
            there is nothing up there. Now go through the left entryway and
            you will have completed Castle 3!

            SCREEN 24:
            You should now be outside of Castle 3, and the journey is
            roughly halfway over! With that out of the way, you can move
            onto Castle 4, but first, there are some things that needs to
            be done. For starters, let's head through the left entryway,
            which will lead to SCREEN 25.
    
            SCREEN 25:
            For this screen, head left until you get to the lake. Now this
            next part will be pretty tough. You see the moving blocks, well
            you need to jump from block to block. Now the tricky part is
            that if you don't jump off one block at the right time, you
            will end up falling into the lake (and you'll have to start all
            over). So what's the right time? Watch the blocks, stand close
            to the edge and at the moment it hits the highest point, then
            you can jump successfully to the next block. Now this will take
            a long time to get across, so do be extra careful. Once you get
            to the otherside, head left and then go through the left
            entryway, leading to SCREEN 26.
    
            SCREEN 26:
            In this screen, you get to see several new enemies (hooray?).
            Starting off will be a Red Mummy and Speeding Eagles. Take out
            the Red Mummy, and then continue going left. Next will be some
            Glowing Ghosts floating towards you, so take it out. Continue
            onwards, jumping over the gaps and you will then come across
            Floating Medusas and a Fire Plant. It's probably best to use a
            Golden Knife on the Fire Plant, then continue onwards to the
            otherside, which is a dead end. Also here is a an orange
            Cloaked Man who will give you the Diamond. This is a handy
            Secondary Weapon that can hit anything in it's path, that will
            cost 1 Heart per use. Now with that, turn around and head
            right, taking out all the enemies in your way. Once at the
            otherside, head through the right entryway, taking you back
            to SCREEN 25.
    
            SCREEN 25:
            Just like you did before, head right to the lake then carefully
            make your way across the blocks to the otherside. Once you do,
            continue going right and then through the right entryway,
            taking you to SCREEN 24.
    
            SCREEN 24:
            When entering here, you have no reason to go back into the
            castle, so continue going right through the right entryway
            leading to SCREEN 23.
    
            SCREEN 23:
            Once you're here, take out the Red Lizardmens and head right
            until you reach the Cloaked Man on the ferry. Talk to him and
            he will tell you that he will take you to a good place, with a
            evil laughter in his voice. Wonder what he's planning!? Well,
            for now he'll just take you across the lake and through the
            right entryway leading to SCREEN 22.
    
            SCREEN 22:
            Now once you enter this screen, travel on the ferry until you
            hit dry land. Jump off, and then head right a bit (taking out
            the Red Lizardmen), and then turn back around and the Cloaked
            Man will be there. Now make sure you de-equip your Dracula's
            Heart and talk to him again. Again he will take you to a good
            place (this is getting a little creepy). But this time when you
            travel through the left entryway, you'll be taken to SCREEN 27.
    
            SCREEN 27:
            Now as a reminder, on SCREEN 22, equip the Dracula's Heart if
            you wanna go to SCREEN 23, but de-equip it if you want to go to
            SCREEN 27. Now with that out of the way, jump off the ferry
            when it hits land and continue going left, taking out the two
            Red Lizardmen, and go through the left entryway. Doing so will
            take you to SCREEN 28.
    
            SCREEN 28:
            As you start this screen, you will notice you're in a town.
            This one is called Town Of Alba.
    
               T O W N  O F  A L B A :
               ITEMS: Garlic, Laurels, Red Crystal
    
               We are now in the Town Of Alba, so what shall we do first?
               Well head left across the gaps and you should see a man in
               Gray on an upper platform. Go up there and talk to him and
               he will trade you your Blue Crystal for the Red Crystal. Now
               head right a bit and jump to the upper platform and continue
               going right, which you'll find a door. Go in it and you'll
               see the return of the empty rooms! Equip your Holy Water and
               use it on the right wall to reveal a hidden passage which
               going through that, you'll see a Cloaked Man who will offer
               you Laurels for 50 Hearts. Buy some if you want, then after
               that, head back to town. Now head up the nearby staircase
               and then up the next staircase. Up on this highest level is
               a Church so you can refill your life. Much further down the
               left pathway is another door, which when you go inside,
               you'll see it's empty as well (no shocker). Use your Holy
               Water on the floor this time to find a hidden passage.
    
               Make your way down here all the way to the bottom level.
               Once there, go through the right entryway and you will see
               another Cloaked Man who will offer you some Garlic for 50
               Hearts. Do you take it or not? I'm thinking you should! Now,
               head back to town, and once you do, head right all the way
               to the staircase and go down it and then the next one. Now
               head all the way left (pant pant), getting various clues
               including something about hitting your head on Deborah Cliff
               (ummm okay?) as well as other useful stuff. At the otherside
               head down the staircase then down the next staircase until
               you reach the bottom level. Now we are ready to move on!
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head through the left
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 29.
    
            SCREEN 29:
            When entering here, you will be greeted by Blue Hopping Slimes
            and going left some more, you'll see some Skeleton Snakes, so
            be careful when taking them out. Continuing on and you'll see a
            Green Skeleton, so take it out and go through the left
            entryway, taking you to SCREEN 30.
    
            SCREEN 30:
            Upon entering here, you will be greeted by a Green Skeleton and
            a Green Stalker, so take them out. You will now be presented
            with a choice: go left or down the stairs. Let's go down the
            stairs for now. Go down them and make your way down and on the
            platform, jump over the left edge and you will land safely on
            the platform below. Now if you dropped down, you will have
            fallen through the invisible platform (don't worry, nothing bad
            will come of it). Now with that, head left drop down to the
            lower platform, jump over the middle (invisible platform
            dropping you to the pink acid lake) and continue going through
            the left entryway, taking you to SCREEN 31.
    
            SCREEN 31:
            Upon entering here will be some Green Soul Snatchers, so take
            them out, and continue going left. You will then come across
            Skeleton Snakes and Green Skeletons, so take them out and
            continue going left. Soon Blue Hopping Slimes and more Green
            Soul Snatchers will join the party, so take them all out. Keep
            going and you will come across another dead end. Okay so now
            what do we do? Well equip your Garlic and use it at the dead
            end and a green Cloaked Man will appear (he must love
            garlic?). Talk to him and he will give you the Silk Bag, which
            you can use to hold more Laurels! Now with that, head back
            right, taking out all of the enemies and go through the right
            entryway taking you back to SCREEN 30.
    
            SCREEN 30:
            Upon returning here, use one of your Laurels (if not you should
            still be okay unless you have little life), and jump into the
            pink acid lake and cross it. At the otherside, continue going
            right until you reach the staircase and climb up it. Continue
            climbing up the stairs until reach above ground. Once you get
            there, head left taking out any Green Stalkers and Green
            Skeletons along the way. Once you make it to the otherside, go
            through the left entryway which will take you to SCREEN 32.
    
            SCREEN 32:
            Upon entering here, you will be greeted by some Blue Hopping
            Slimes, so be careful taking them out. Afterwards, continue
            going left taking out more of them and then head to the left
            entryway. Now make sure you have atleast 250 Hearts, because
            you will need each one of them. When you do have that much, go
            through the left entryway, taking you to SCREEN 33.
    
            SCREEN 33:
            As you start this screen, you will notice you're in a town.
            This one is called Town Of Ondol.
    
               T O W N  O F  O N D O L :
               ITEMS: Laurels, Morning Star
    
               You are now in the next town, which is the Town Of Ondol. So
               what shall we do here, well head up the staircase in front
               of you and enter the door you see. In here is, well you
               guessed it, an empty room. So bust out the Holy Water and
               use it on the right wall and go through the hidden passage
               to find, another empty room O_o. Okay so that's two empty
               rooms, now what, well, third times the charm so bust out the
               right wall of this room and go through that hidden passage.
               You will finally find the Cloaked Man who will offer you
               some Laurels for 50 Hearts (all this for that?!). Get them,
               and then head back to town.
    
               Once back outside, head up the nearby staircase and at the
               top of that, follow the path left and keep going until you
               reach a door. Enter the door to find a big hole in the floor
               O_o. Go through the hole and continue going downwards all
               the way. Once at the bottom, head through the right passage
               and you will see a Cloaked Man who will offer you the
               Morning Star for 200 Hearts. Obviously you should have this
               much Hearts, so go ahead and buy it (finally a new whip!).
               With that, head back out into town. Now head left to the
               otherside and head down the staircase, then the next one and
               head left. Now we are ready to move on!
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head through the left
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 34.
    
            SCREEN 34:
            Upon entering here, Glowing Ghosts will come to you, so take
            them out and then keep going left. You will then encounter some
            Red Mummies, but they should be easy now. Continue going left
            until you reach the lake, which has some moving platforms.
            Remember how to do this from before? If not, jump from block to
            block when they reach the highest peak. Make your way across
            these three blocks carefully. After that, continue going right
            and you will come to a dead end? Equip the Dracula's Eyeball
            and you will see a Clue Book appearing. Go to it and it will
            say "Dracula's Nail may solve the evil mystery". Well how do we
            find Dracula's Nail then? Well, here's a start on that mystery,
            jump up to the left wall and equip your Red Crystal and kneel
            down and after a few seconds of this a tornado will come out.
            It will take you to SCREEN 35.
    
            SCREEN 35:
            Hope you didn't get air sick, because it looks like that
            tornado took you right outside of the next castle we're going
            in. Make sure you're at Level 5 for this one, and when you are,
            enter the door and get ready for Castle 4!

            S E C T I O N   4 - 1 :
            Here we go, the fourth castle! Upon entering you will see a Red
            Lance Knight, so take it out an continue going right where you
            will see a Red Skeleton Solider. Now here's the deal, ahead of
            you is a wall but if you jump into the lower part of it, you
            will see that it's an fake wall. Obviously this would be a
            shortcut to the treasure, but we're not gonna go that way.
            Instead climb up the staircase and take out the next Red
            Skeleton Solider then climb up the next staircase after that.
            Another Red Skeleton Solider and a staircase, follows that, so
            head through this. Now you will see two Blue Gels, but more
            importantly, walk four blocks from the stairs to the left, then
            jump to the next staircase as there is a fake floor in between.
            After that, climb up the staircase to find more Red Skeleton
            Soliders (sounds like a trend is happening).
    
            Now you could go left where you will find some Falling Rocks
            and another Red Skeleton Solider, but it's a dead end, so just
            go right instead. Do so, and jump up the blocks and walk a few
            steps right and you will see a lone platform with a spike pit
            under it. Make it across here (wouldn't want to fall into the
            pit now) and you will see you can either go up or down (both
            with a Red Skeleton Solider). Well going down leads to a dead
            end, no fun there, so I guess we take the upper path. Except
            the upper path looks like it's a dead end as well. Don't worry,
            I purposely led you here because at the wall, jump up to the
            right to find a fake wall, which going through it will take you
            to SECTION 4-2.
    
            S E C T I O N   4 - 2 :
            Upon entering here, you will see Red Skeleton Soliders all
            around, so take out the one you see, head right and drop down,
            take the other ones out, head left and drop down take some more
            out, then continue going right until you come to another wall.
            Right now you're probably trying to walk through it, which you
            can't. So instead use you're Holy Water to take out some of the
            blocks (this sure sounds familiar), and then you can continue
            on. Do so, jumping over the small spike pit and there will be
            more Red Skeleton Soliders and Red Lance Knights. Take them out
            and you will see two staircases. For now, climb the staircase
            going up (take out the Red Lance Knight), and head left a bit
            and drop down to that smaller platform sticking out.
    
            Now face the blocks, use the Holy Water to reveal a book which
            has Clue #1. It says, and I quote, "The curse has killed the
            Laurel Tree". Nothing you can do for now, so just head back to
            the staircases and then take the one going down. As you make
            your way downwards, you'll see a Red Lance Knight and a Red
            Bone Tosser, so take them out. So now we're down here with what
            looks like another dead end, and you're probably mad about
            this. But wait, jump into the left wall to reveal a fake wall.
            Of course by going into it, you will be going into what could
            very well be your doom! Only kidding, it's just a dark section
            ^_^. Follow the pathway left and you will see an orange Cloaked
            Man who will offer you Oak Stakes for 50 Hearts, which I'm sure
            you have, so go ahead and buy some.
    
            After that, continue going left and you will drop through a
            fake floor and land on another flooring. You will see a Red
            Skeleton Solider so take it out if you want, but head left and
            drop down to the lowest flooring and then head right, taking
            out more Red Skeleton Soliders and soon you will be in a room
            with an Orb. Break out your Oak Stake and use it on the Orb to
            uncover Dracula's Nail, which you will now prossess (why is it
            still called "prossess"?). Anyways, after this, turn around and
            head left until you reach the staircase (taking out whatever is
            in your way), and climb up the second staircase. At the top is
            some more Red Skeleton Soliders and another shorter staircase,
            which you will climb. Now jump up the blocks and go through the
            left entryway which will take you back to SECTION 4-1.
    
            S E C T I O N   4 - 1 : (REVISITED)
            Remember that shortcut, and well there's two ways to get
            through: tough or easy. Let's go easy, head to the staircase
            (that I forgot to put on my map, my bad!) and climb up it and
            head left taking out the Red Skeleton Soliders. On the
            otherside, simply drop down and head left to the wall. Now if
            you are curious about the tough way, if you got on the lower
            platform (from the staircase), you would have to use your Holy
            Water to take out the upper platforms ahead of you, and jump
            across the lower platforms. And with spikes there, not worth
            it! Anyways at the wall, jump through it to go through the fake
            wall and then continue going left. You will see the Red
            Skeleton Solider and Red Lance Knight from the start of this
            castle, so just take them out and continue going left. Now go
            through the left entryway and you will have completed Castle 4!

            LEGEND:
            [35] = Castle 4: Bodley Mansion
            [38] = ITEM: Flame Whip (Morning Star needed)
            [41] = Castle 5: Laruba Mansion
    
            SCREEN 35:
            You should now be outside of Castle 4, and the long road is
            getting ever so close to finishing! With that out of the way,
            you can move onto Castle 5, but first, there are some things
            that needs to be done. For starters, let's head through the
            left entryway, which will lead to SCREEN 36.
    
            SCREEN 36:
            On this screen is a whole lot of nothing, which is good after a
            long journey. Make your way to the left entryway and go through
            it, taking you to SCREEN 37.
    
            SCREEN 37:
            For this screen, you will see a lake in front of you. No, I
            didn't lead you the wrong way. Instead equip the Red Crystal
            and bow down to the water (for it is your master!). You will
            notice the screen will then lower revealing a passageway
            underneath. Make your way down here and once you make it to the
            staircase, make sure you drop over the left side. After that
            continue going left until you reach solid ground. Continue on
            by going through the left entryway which will take you
            to SCREEN 38.
    
            SCREEN 38:
            Now this screen is a little crazy. You'll probably notice as
            you play through this screen that it's rather big. But you
            don't have to go through the entire screen just get through it.
            Infact all you need is to stay on the lower half. That's why I
            drew a map to help you through (what a complete shock huh lol):

            From where you are, head to the Black Skeleton and take it out,
            and head up the blocks. You will then come to a wall, so equip
            your Holy Water and take out the wall. Continue left to the
            edge and Floating Skulls will come out (use your Golden Knife
            on them). Carefully jump across the gaps, because this will be
            tricky. Once you made it past the gaps, and onto the solid
            platform, turn around and drop down the rightside and you'll
            land on a moving platform. On there, face the left wall and use
            the Holy Water on it. Now go left and you'll see a Cloaked Man.
            Talk to him and he will upgrade your Morning Star into the
            Flame Whip (the strongest whip in the game). Now jump across
            the moving platforms then at the otherside, go up the blocks,
            go left, take out the wall, cross the gaps and you'll be on the
            solid platform again. Now continue going left, drop down a bit,
            climb up the lone blocks, take out the Black Skeleton, drop
            down the leftside. Now there is more to this screen, but it's
            not necessary to explore. Now go through left entryway taking
            you to SCREEN 39 (phew!).
    
            SCREEN 39:
            Upon entering this screen, Floating Skull and Fire Creature so
            take these out and continue left. Soon you will come to the
            moving block situation like before. Carefully jump across these
            blocks and at the otherside is another Floating Skull and Fire
            Creature. Take these out continue going left defeating more of
            them. Go through the left entryway leading to SCREEN 40.
    
            SCREEN 40:
            Upon entering here, use one of your Laurels (if you don't have
            one, you're kinda screwed) and go through the pink acid lake.
            After crossing the first one (which has a Leech in it), you
            will have to cross a second one (which has an Orange Slime
            Creature as well as Leeches in it). This is a long one, so
            hopefully you'll have another Laurel on you. After getting
            through this, jump out of the lake and go through the left
            entryway, taking you to SCREEN 41.
    
            SCREEN 41:
            Right now you will be outside of another castle. I know, we
            just got finished with one five screens ago, but here we go
            with another one! If you're still at Level 5, that's good. Now
            enter the door and get ready for Castle 5!

            S E C T I O N   5 - 1 :
            Upon entering this castle, you will be greeted by two Gray
            Skeleton Soliders, so take them out and continue going right.
            Continue going right and you will come across a Gray Lance
            Knight and a Gray Bone Tosser. Take these out and head to the
            staircase (there is a Gray Skeleton Solider here as well). Be
            careful as you climb up the staircase as there will be a Gray
            Lance Knight up here (I'm beginning to see a color theme here).
            At the top, go left and make it to the otherside (another Gray
            Lance Knight), and climb up the short staircase. From up here,
            take out any Gray Skeleton Soliders you see, and jump to the
            upper platform on the right.
    
            This time you don't have to climb the staircase (GASP!) but
            instead you must go right and follow the pathway to the
            otherside, climbing up the short walls, taking out any Gray
            Skeleton Soliders along the way. Continue going right and you
            will see a staircase, which you will pass this one up as well.
            Instead go right up the platforms then down the platforms on
            the otherside (watch out for that nasty Gray Bone Tosser in the
            way!). Once you made it to the otherside, go through the right
            entryway which will take you to SECTION 5-2.
    
            S E C T I O N   5 - 2 :
            In here you will be greeted by a Gray Skeleton Solider on the
            lower platform, so use your Holy Water or Diamond on it. After
            that, well, it looks like we have a decision to make (such as
            life), do we go up or do we go down? I'd say let's go up, and
            with that, stand on the platform where it was, then jump to the
            upper platform on the right. Once there, climb up the staircase
            (why are there spikes here, it's not really much of an
            obsticle?!) and take out the Gray Skeleton Solider at the top.
            Now jump up the platforms to the right, and take out the other
            Gray Skeleton Solider. Now keep going right, across the small
            spike pit and you will see a Cloaked Man (they seem to pop up
            all over the place). Talk to him and he will offer you an Oak
            Stake for 50 Hearts, which you obviously have, so go ahead and
            pay him. With that, climb up the nearby staircase, and at the
            top continue going right until you reach the edge.
    
            Drop off the right edge and you will see a Gray Bone Tosser.
            Take it out if you can, then head right a bit and drop over the
            right edge of that (I know my map says you'll land in a spike
            pit, but that's not true, I must adjust that). Down here will
            be a couple more Gray Bone Tossers, so use your Golden Knife on
            them. Jump over the spike pit and then drop down the left side,
            then go right and drop down the right side. Be careful as there
            are Gray Bone Tossers and Gray Lance Knights down here (I'd use
            the Golden Knife in this case). Now head left and drop down the
            leftside and you will land on a small landing. Now from here,
            get to the edge and JUMP (not drop) to the right over the lower
            wall you see. If you drop, well, it's gonna be a long journey
            back to this point. After jumping over the right side, drop
            down to the Gray Lance Knight and take it out (shouldn't be
            hard as it's only two hits). Now just make your way to the
            lowest portion of this area. Head through the right entryway,
            which will take you to SECTION 5-3.
    
            S E C T I O N   5 - 3 :
            What do you know, another boss fight is ahead of us, and it
            looks like some weird face mask one eye thingy. Oh well, get
            ready for the second boss fight in the game!
    
               BOSS #2: FLOATING MASK
               ITEM REQUIRED: Flame Whip & Golden Knife
               ITEM RECEIVED: Magic Cross
               Okay this fight might be a bit tougher than the last. What
               we got here is this mask creature that will float around in
               a circular formation, covering most of the room. When it
               stops however, it will shoot down fireballs which will
               disperse and shooting 5 of them in an archway formation.
               These are its only attacks. So what should you do, well make
               sure you have some Laurels, and use them to get a bit of
               protection. For defeating it, get to just to the left of the
               center and make sure it's at the lowest point. Using the
               Flame Whip/Golden Knife combo will work perfectly here, but
               you have to jump up at it to hit it. After about 4 or 5
               rounds of this, it will be defeated!
    
            After the fight, you will be rewarded with the Magic Cross,
            which is a weapon you can't use quite yet (but you will soon
            enough!). Now, go through the right entryway which will take
            you SECTION 5-4.
    
            S E C T I O N   5 - 4 :
            Upon entering this room, you will see the seizure-ific Orb once
            again, so equip your Oak Stake and use it on the Orb. Again the
            room will start to shake and you will be presented with a
            seizure-ific bag which has Dracula's Ring it. So let's see, you
            have the Bone, Heart, Eyeball, Nail and Ring. I know, let's see
            what we can get for that on Ebay! No no, instead we must use
            them for something bigger. With that, leave through the left
            entrway, leading back to SECTION 5-3.
    
            S E C T I O N   5 - 3 : (REVISITED)
            In here, you will see the Floating Mask again, but you don't
            have to fight it if you don't want to, so just head through the
            left entryway, leading back to SECTION 5-2.
    
            S E C T I O N   5 - 2 : (REVISITED)
            Once you get back here, jump up the short wall, and head left
            until you reach the long spike pit (try to avoid the White
            Spiders web attacks). Once here, a moving platform will come
            your way, so jump on it, and use it (and the next one) to get
            to the otherside. Be careful as spikes will shoot up from the
            spike pit. Now jump up the short wall to find another Cloaked
            Man, who is just begging you to take his Laurels (free stuff,
            who are we to argue right?). Now head back across the long
            spike pit like before and head right until you reach the small
            platforms leading upwards. Take out the Gray Lance Knight and
            keep climbing upwards. Now you will probably notice you can't
            climb any further, so instead jump over to the left side
            (you'll know what I'm talking about).
    
            Now continue going left along here, taking out the White
            Spiders until you make it to the otherside. Now this might be
            tricky, in which case if you mess up, you'll have to start over
            by going across the long spike pit and up the platforms (just
            look at my map). What you need to do is jump up the small
            platforms (leading left) taking out the Gray Skeleton Soliders.
            Once you get to the second one, take it out, and jump to the
            upper platforms on the right, taking out the Gray Bone Tosser.
            Once there, jump to the upper platforms on the left, where
            there is a Gray Skeleton Solider. Take it out and head through
            the left entryway you see, which takes you back to SECTION 5-1.
    
            S E C T I O N   5 - 1 : (REVISITED)
            We're almost mansion free, literally! From when you come back
            here, jump up the platforms to the left then head to the
            staircase (there will be a Gray Bone Tossers and Gray Skeletons
            Soliders here). Now go down the staircase, take out the next
            Gray Bone Tosser, and drop down over the left edge. Down here
            will be another Gray Skeleton Solider and a Gray Lance Knight,
            so take them out as well. Now head left and continue going
            left, taking out any enemies in your way and ignoring the
            staircases. More Gray Skeleton Soliders, Gray Bone Tossers and
            Gray Lance Knights will be in your way, so take them out. Now
            that you are at the otherside, go through the left entryway and
            you will have completed Castle 5!

            LEGEND:
    
            [35] = Castle 4: Bodley Mansion
            [39] = ITEM: Clue Book
            [41] = Castle 5: Laruba Mansion
            [45] = Town Of Doina
    
            SCREEN 41:
            You should now be outside of Castle 5, and you have just a
            little bit more to go (FINALLY ^_^)! With that out of the way,
            you can move onto Castle 6, but first, there are some things
            that needs to be done. But before we do even that, I'd like to
            point your attention to if you go left. Doing so would take you
            to SCREEN 42 and then SCREEN 43. After that, you will be at
            SCREEN 17, which if you remember from before (which I'm sure
            you don't), you'll recall it's a one-way trip. Long story
            short, avoid going left from SCREEN 41 ^_^. Now with that
            pointless talk out of the way, let's head through the right
            entryway, which will lead to SCREEN 40.
    
            SCREEN 40:
            Once here, head left and use a Laurel and jump into the pink
            acid lake. Avoid the Leeches and take out the Orange Slime
            Creatures. Once you make it through the first, jump into the
            second one and make it through this one. After that, jump out
            and head through the right entryway, taking you to SCREEN 39.
    
            SCREEN 39:
            Right away you will be greeted by Fire Creatures and Floating
            Skulls, so I would use the Golden Knife to take them all out.
            Continue like this until you get to a lake with moving
            platforms. Time your moves and be careful as Floating Skulls
            will come at you. After you make it across that, continue going
            right, equip Dracula's Eye and you will see a CLUE BOOK (where
            did that come from?!), which says "Dracula's evil knife blurs
            Camilla's Vision". I guess that Floating Mask creature has a
            name, oh well, too late to do anything now ^_^. Continue
            onwards, and then go through the right entryway, which will
            take you to SCREEN 38.
    
            SCREEN 38:
            You are now back in the maze of blocks, and if you can't
            remember how to get through, I'll be glad to copypaste my map
            from earlier, just for you :)

            I'll wait till you all make it to the otherside (watch out for
            the Black Skeletons and Floating Skulls). *surfs Youtube* Okay
            now that you made it to the otherside, head through the right
            entryway, taking you to SCREEN 37.
    
            SCREEN 37:
            Once you get here, jump over to where the staircase is, and
            climb up it. Now continue making your way up the blocks until
            you reach the lake. Jump out of that, and head through the
            right entryway, taking you to SCREEN 36.
    
            SCREEN 36:
            In here, simply make it to the otherside and go through the
            right entryway (why can't it always be this easy?), taking you
            to SCREEN 35.
    
            SCREEN 35:
            You will now be just outside of Castle 4, but you have no need
            to go into it, so instead go through the right entryway, taking
            you to SCREEN 44.
    
            SCREEN 44:
            In this new screen, you will be greeted by Red Mummies, so take
            them out with ease, and then continue onwards. Soon you will
            come across a White Fire Plant and then Flying Vultures, so do
            be careful taking them out. Continuing onwards and you will see
            Floating Medusas, so get around this and make your way to the
            right entryway. Go through it, and you will be at SCREEN 45.
    
            SCREEN 45:
            As you start this screen, you will notice you're in a town.
            This one is called Town Of Doina.
    
               T O W N  O F  D O I N A :
               ITEMS: Laurels
    
               Here we are in the Town Of Doina. There isn't exactly alot
               in this town. All the people seem to be really anal about
               you coming back to Castlevania. Don't exactly get why, but
               it's not your problem. The first door you see has an old
               lady who tells you to get back! The second door is a Church
               which will come in handy to refill your life. Make your way
               to the third door and enter it. Inside, drop into the
               opening in the floor and continue making your way downwards.
               You will then see a Cloaked Man who will offer you some
               Laurels for 50 Hearts, which I'm pretty sure you have, so go
               ahead and buy some. DO NOT use any Laurels from this point
               on, you will need to save them. After this, head back
               outside to town. Now we are ready to move on!
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head through the right
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 46.
    
            SCREEN 46:
            Upon entering here, you will see some Red Skeletons and an
            Orange Sea Creature popping up. Be careful as you make your way
            through here, because you will have to jump over from platform
            to platform. Once you make your way across this big mess,
            continue onwards, taking out more enemies and go through the
            right entryway, taking you to SCREEN 47.
    
            SCREEN 47:
            For this screen, you will be be greeted by some Green
            Lizardmens, so be quick on taking them out. Continue onwards to
            the pink acid lake. Now if you have alot of health, jump into
            the pink acid lake. No sense of wasting a Laurel because at the
            most you'd lose a few health points. At the otherside, take out
            the Green Lizardman and head through the right entryway, taking
            you to SCREEN 48.
    
            SCREEN 48:
            When you get in here, you will see Red Skeletons and a choice
            to make: Go down the stairs or continue on. Well, we are going
            down the stairs. Just so you know, if you went continue on, you
            would go through SCREEN 52, 53 & 54, but it's pretty much a
            dead end with nothing of use there. So there is no point going
            through those screens. With that, use your Diamond to take out
            the Red Skeletons and go down the stairs. Once you make it to
            the bottom, continue going right and follow the path to the
            right entryway. Go through it and you will be at SCREEN 49.
    
            SCREEN 49:
            As you start this screen, you will notice you're in a town.
            This one is called Town Of Yomi.
    
               T O W N  O F  Y O M I :
               Items: None
    
               You are now in the Town Of Yomi. As you explore through
               here, you will see that this is really the town of nothing,
               as there isn't anything happening. The first door leads to
               an empty room (no there isn't any secret passages). As you
               make your way to the otherside, you'll see another door
               which has an old woman in it. She will tell you "let's live
               here together". I'm thinking she's been alone for a long
               time, it might explain why the town's dead *runs*. Head back
               outside into town before she gets any ideas. Now we are
               ready to move on!
    
            Now that you are done with this town, head through the right
            entrance of town, leading to SCREEN 50.
    
            SCREEN 50:
            Wow, the 50th screen. Just how big is this game?! Right away
            you will see some White Mummies. Now believe it or not, the
            tombstones block your way (that's 2-D phsyics for you), so you
            need to jump on them, and take out the White Mummies (using the
            Diamond). As you make your way across this, you will see some
            White Speeding Eagles too followed by White Glowing Ghosts, so
            be careful of those. Continue making your way across the
            tombstones until you reach the otherside (a bit of a journey).
            Work up to getting to Level 6, because you will need all your
            strength for the final battle! Once you make it to the
            otherside, head through the right entryway, taking you
            to SCREEN 51.
    
            SCREEN 51:
            Right away it would seem your path is blocked by blocks. Great,
            come all this way to find a dead end, or is it? Get to the
            blocks and with your Holy Water equipped, jump up and throw it
            on the first two blocks to destroy them. Now we can pass
            onwards! Jump over the other blocks and continue following the
            long pathway to the otherside. Now once there, go through the
            right entryway and you will be at Castle 6!

      M: |Castle 6: Castlevania|
          ---------------------
    
         ITEMS FOUND: None
         ITEMS REQUIRED: Dracula's Rib, Dracula's Nail, Dracula's Heart,
                         Dracula's Eyeball, Dracula's Ring, Cross
         LEVEL REQUIRED: Level 6
         LINK TO MAP: There is none ^_^
    
         If you were expecting a map for Dracula's Tomb, well forget it,
         because I never made one. Guess I should have, but it was too
         straight forward so I decided not to make one ^_^.
    
            S E C T I O N  6 - 1 :
            Here we are, the final stage! The good news here is, NO
            ENEMIES! With that, from the starting point, head right
            (jumping over the small platform) and continue onwards the long
            path to the end. You will now see a staircase going downwards,
            but tons of blocks are in your way. Bust out your Holy Water
            and start throwing it on all the blocks you see. Doing so will
            destroy several of them, giving you access to the staircase.
            Head down the staircase, and drop over the rightside. Go left,
            drop down, then go right and drop through the skinny opening.
            You will notice that you can't go back the way you came (like
            it matters now). Now head left till you see two staircases.
            Take short one going up and then follow the short path to the
            ledge. From the ledge, jump over to the landing on the wall,
            then drop down on the leftside of that wall. Now go right,
            jumping over the blocks (why they put stairs here I'll never
            know), then on the otherside, go over to the staircase going
            down and head down it. At the bottom, turn around and head
            right into the big room. Now go through the right entryway,
            which will take you to SECTION 6-2.
    
            S E C T I O N  6 - 2 :
            Upon entering here, a cutscene will take place, showing that
            all those items of Dracula you have collected will go into the
            middle pedistal. A fire will appear and then a figure will
            emerge. This figure is the Dark Prince himself. Get ready for
            the final battle!
    
               BOSS #3: DRACULA
               ITEM REQUIRED: Flame Whip & Golden Knife
               ITEM RECEIVED: None
    
               So here's how this fight is set up. Dracula will split into
               four beings, and begin circling the room very fast. He will
               stop for a split second only to throw out, what looks like
               his ribs? Here's what you need to do: Use a Laurel right
               away and get to the bottom right corner. From there, just
               use your Golden Knife and Flame Whip combo on him, no matter
               if he's circling around or if he's standing still, you'll
               still be able to hit him just the same. The moment one
               Laurel runs out, use another one (you should have 8
               Laurels). If you have alot of Hearts, then don't worry about
               your ammo supply, just keep hitting him. Soon enough he will
               be destroyed!
    
            And with that, you have completed the game. You will now be
            treated to one of three endings. Which one, well that depends
            on how well you did. To find out, please skip to the next
            section. And now I will say, congradulations on beating
            Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest for the Nintendo Entertainment
            System.

      N: |The Endings|
          -----------
    
         There are three endings to this game. To get those endings, you
         must play through the game in a certain amount of days. Here is a
         list of all the endings and their requirements (SPOILERS AHEAD):
    
            1. BEST ENDING: Requirements are to beat the game in 8 Game
               Days. Sun is setting and we see Simon kneeling at Dracula's
               Grave. You will get the following message: "The encounter
               with Dracula is terminated. Simon Belmont has put an end to
               the eternal darkness in Transylvania. His blood and sweat
               have penetrated the earth and will induce magic & happiness
               for those who walk on this land". And with that, it becomes
               nightfall. But just when things look safe, the grave shakes
               and a hand appears!
    
            2. GOOD ENDING: Requirements are to beat the game in 8 to 15
               Game Days. Daybreak is upon Simon as he kneels down at
               Dracula's Grave. You will get the following message:
               "Although the confrontation between Simon and Dracula has
               concluded, Simon couldn't survive his fatal wounds.
               Transylvania's only hope is a young man who will triumph
               over evil and ride the city of Dracula's deadly curse." Kind
               of a depressing ending honestly.
    
            3. BAD ENDING: Requirements are to beat the game in 15 or more
               Game Days. It's nightfall (seriously, it's black and white!)
               has fallen, and we see a lone grave. You will get the
               following message: "The battle has consummated. Now peace
               and serenity have been restored to Transulvania and the
               people are free of Dracula's curse forever. And you, Simon
               Belmont, will always be remembered for your bravery and
               courage." Guess someone kicked the bucket ^_^

    SECTION 3: |THE GOODIES|
                -----------
    
          ---------
      A: |Level Ups|
          ---------
    
         To gain experience, you defeat enemies. However unlike most RPGs,
         if an enemy drops a Heart of any kind, you only get experience
         from that. Keep in mind, that these Hearts can be used as currency
         to buy stuff or as ammo for your Secondary Weapons. There are
         three different kinds of Hearts, which is listed below:
    
            1. SMALL HEART = These are found in enemies, and gives you 2
               Heart Points and 1 Experience Point.
            2. 1/2 GIANT HEART = These are found in enemies, and gives you
               4 Heart Points and 3 Experience Points.
            3. GIANT HEART = These are found in enemies, and gives you 6
               Heart Points and 5 Experience Points.
    
         Now the downside, overtime, you will not be able to get experience
         from the Hearts certain enemies drops. I was working on a way
         where you can find out where you can level up at, but kinda gave
         up on that. If anyone out there has such a chart, I'll be glad to
         credit you for it! ^_^
    
         With everything that I've told you in mind, once you get enough
         experience, you will level up (just like in any RPG). Below tells
         you what experience you need to get in order to level up, as well
         as other info:
    
             LVL  HP   EXP  ATT DEF
             --- ---- ----- --- ---  LVL: What your current Level is.
            | 0 | 12 | 000 | 1 | 1 | HP:  How much bars of life you have.
            | 1 | 12 | 100 | 2 | 2 |      (shown in the upper left corner)
            | 2 | 16 | 150 | 3 | 3 | EXP: Shows how much experience you
            | 3 | 16 | 200 | 4 | 4 |      need to get to the next Level.
            | 4 | 20 | 250 | 5 | 5 | ATT: Shows how much damage you can do.
            | 5 | 20 | 300 | 6 | 6 | DEF: Shows how much damage you can
            | 6 | 24 | 350 | 7 | 7 |      withstand from enemies.
             --- ---- ---- --- ----
    
         Keep in mind, when you level up, your experience will reset back
         to 0 so that you can begin building up for the next level. Seeing
         as the highest experience you can get from anything is 5 EXP, it
         is quite possible that your experience will show up to 4 EXP after
         hitting Level 6 (349 EXP + 5 EXP = 354 EXP), but it won't mean
         anything if that happens. Also note, your Attack and Defense is
         nowheres listed in the game, but it is something I came up with to
         give you more info on how stronger you will become.
    
          ---------------
      B: |Primary Weapons|
          ---------------
    
         The main weapon in this game is whips. There are five whips in the
         game and below is a list of them and info on them:
    
            1. LEATHER WHIP (ATT +1): This is the first whip in the game.
               You also start off with this whip.
            2. THORN WHIP (ATT +2): This is the second whip in the game.
               You can buy this for 100 Hearts in the Town Of Jova.
            3. CHAIN WHIP (ATT +4): This is the third whip in the game. You
               can buy this for 150 Hearts in the Town Of Veros.

               Take the Morning Star to a man near Castle 5, to upgrade it.
    
          -----------------
      C: |Secondary Weapons|
          -----------------
    
         Like other Castlevania games, there is quite a few secondary
         weapons. This is a list of all of those weapons and info on them:
    
            1. HOLY WATER (ATT +1): Does little damage to enemies as well
               as destroy some blocks revealing secret passages.
            2. DAGGER (ATT +2): A little more stronger weapon that can be
               used for long distance attacking.
            3. SILVER KNIFE (ATT +2): Just as strong as the Dagger, only
               this weapon costs 1 Heart per use.
            4. DIAMOND (ATT +2): When using it, a diamond will shoot out
               hitting all enemies in its path.
            5. SACRED FLAME (ATT +4): Throw it at an enemy and flames will
               rise up doing decent damage to enemies. Very good defense.
            6. GOLDEN KNIFE (ATT +16): This is the best Secondary Weapon,
               which will do massive damage to enemies.
            7. OAK STAKE: Used to break open the orbs found in the five
               mansions. Not to be used as a weapon.
            8. LAUREL: Using this will give you temporial invincibility.
               Use these against bosses or in very dire need.
            9. GARLIC: While these may have other uses, the main one is to
               summon a Cloaked Man who will give you the Silver Knife.
    
         Amongst these Seconrdary Weapons, some of them will cost Hearts to
         use. Below is a list of those weapons and the Hearts they use:
    
            1. Silver Knife = 1 Heart   3. Golden Knife = 2 Hearts
            2. Diamond = 1 Heart        4. Sacred Flame = 2 Hearts

          -------
      A: |Enemies|
          -------
    
         There are three groups of enemies: Overworld Enemies, Castle
         Enemies, and Town Enemies. Most of the enemies you encounter will
         be repeated throughout the game, but as different colors. Below is
         a list of all the groups of enemies, as well as how many hits it
         takes to defeat them (thanks to RPGClassics.com for the idea
         behind this, as well as any info from them).
    
         The first list will be of all the Overworld Enemies. For these, I
         will show the how much it will take to defeat them in both daytime
         and nighttime, as they are twice as strong at nighttime.

               out but be careful.         | Gray   | 32 | 16 | 8 | 4 | 2 |
    
            6. SMALL BATS: These will fly    COLOR    LTH  THR CHN MRN FLM
               a very short distance.      | Black  |  4 |  2 | 1 | 1 | 1 |
    
            7. FALLING ROCKS: These rocks    COLOR    LTH  THR CHN MRN FLM

               Spiders, only tougher.      | White  | 32 | 16 | 8 | 4 | 2 |
    
         Finally I will list the very few Town Enemies, which only come out
         at nighttime. These creatures aren't that tough:
    
            1. HAG WITCHES: There are four   COLOR    LTH THR CHN MRN FLM
               kinds of these enemies that | Green  |  2 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 |
               invades towns at night. As  | Green  |  4 | 2 | 1 | 1 | 1 |
               you progress through the    | Green  |  8 | 4 | 2 | 1 | 1 |
               towns, they get tougher.    | Green  | 16 | 8 | 4 | 2 | 1 |
    
            2. RAVENS: These are birds       COLOR    LTH THR CHN MRN FLM
               that will swoop down and    | Black  |  4 | 2 | 1 | 1 | 1 |
               attack whn you're nearby.   | Black  | 16 | 8 | 4 | 2 | 1 |
    
          ------
      B: |Bosses|
          ------
    
         This is a list of all of the bosses in the game:
    
            BOSS #1: GRIM REAPER (from Castle 3):
            ITEM REQUIRED: Chain Whip & Sacred Flame
            ITEM RECEIVED: Golden Knife
            HITS: LTH = 128; THR = 64; CHN = 32; MRN = 16; FLM = 8
    
               Here is how the fight will setup, Grim Repear will float
               around at a medium pace, throwing out his psycthes at you
               (doing little damage). These will take 2 hits with your
               Chain Whip. So what should you do? Well use a Laurel first
               (if you have any) so that you are given a little protection.
               Now equip your Sacred Flame and get him to stay in the
               middle part of the floor. With him there, use your Sacred
               Flame on him, which will do some decent damage to him (about
               3 or 4 hits). While he's being attacked by the flame, use
               your Chain Whip on him to do double damage. This is a great
               combo attack to take him down. After about 7 or 8 rounds of
               this he will fall.
    
            BOSS #2: FLOATING FACE (from Castle 5):
            ITEM REQUIRED: Flame Whip & Golden Knife
            ITEM RECEIVED: Magic Cross
            HITS: LTH = 256; THR = 128 = CHN = 64; MRN = 32; FLM = 16
    
               Okay this fight might be a bit tougher than the last. What
               we got here is this mask creature that will float around in
               a circular formation, covering most of the room. When it
               stops however, it will shoot down fireballs which will
               disperse and shooting 5 of them in an archway formation.
               These are its only attacks. So what should you do, well make
               sure you have some Laurels, and use them to get a bit of
               protection. For defeating it, get to just to the left of the
               center and make sure it's at the lowest point. Using the
               Flame Whip/Golden Knife combo will work perfectly here, but
               you have to jump up at it to hit it. After about 4 or 5
               rounds of this, it will be defeated!
    
            BOSS #3: DRACULA (from Castle 6):
            ITEM REQUIRED:
            ITEM RECEIVED: None
            HITS: LTH = 256; THR = 128 = CHN = 64; MRN = 32; FLM = 16
    
               So here's how this fight is set up. Dracula will split into
               four beings, and begin circling the room very fast. He will
               stop for a split second only to throw out, what looks like
               his ribs? Here's what you need to do: Use a Laurel right
               away and get to the bottom right corner. From there, just
               use your Golden Knife and Flame Whip combo on him, no matter
               if he's circling around or if he's standing still, you'll
               still be able to hit him just the same. The moment one
               Laurel runs out, use another one (you should have 8
               Laurels). If you have alot of Hearts, then don't worry about
               your ammo supply, just keep hitting him. Soon enough he will
               be destroyed!

         Like anyone would read this but something new I've been toying
         around with is the idea of taking donations. After making as many
         maps and FAQs as I have, it tends to be a big strain on my
         computer (I have a cheap-ass computer). So if you like any or all
         of my FAQs and maps, and wish to give a little something back, you
         can donate as much as you want to my PayPal account ^_^. Email me
         your donations at StarFighters76@comcast.net

      D: |The Disclaimer|
          --------------
    
         Castlevania 2 is probably a very underrated game for the series.
         To be quite honest however, this one is my favorite of all the
         Castlevania games (though you can't knock the original). It's a
         very unique game that's quite different than the norm for the
         series, especially the earlier games. I dunno, something about it
         I just got into (maybe the RPG aspects of it), and that's why I
         really love this game. I made this walkthrough the best way I can
         and I hope it helps out in every way possible. Now here comes the
        important stuff you need to read.
    
         Ok, I'll make this quick and simple. This walkthrough is my work.
         I've made this walkthrough, describing the game the best possible
         way I can. You can use whatever info you want, so long as you give
         me credit and don't alter anything. All you have to do is email me
         at StarFighters76@hotmail.com if you're gonna do anything with
         this walkthrough. And to show that I'm not a complete selfish
         bastard, if you have something you wanna add, email me and I will
         give you full credit ^_^. This walkthrough, like many others are
         intended for GameFAQs ONLY. You want it on your site, well you
         better start emailing me. Failure to comply with this, and I will
         be mad, among other things.
