Super Castlevania IV is a remake of the original?

Yes. Or at least, a retelling of the same story, Simon Belmont taking on Dracula in 1691. In Japan it's simply Akumajo Dracula, same as CV1 and all the other remakes thereof.

Wow there are some garbage platforming sections in the Castle Courtyard. Glad I'm using save states because otherwise I would be back to the beginning at least 3 times probably.

Edit: right after I complain about it, of course I make it through that section.

Ha, the triple boss (Mummies, Cyclops, Flying Demon) in the castle courtyard is stupid easy due to the layout. Mummies died instantly due to the holy water, Cyclops was dead easily by jumping over him, and the flying demon died easily with the holy water too.

Into the Castle we go!

Why is holy water so good?

It took a few tries, but I was able to hit Death without being able to take any damage.

I know the Cross is the be all end all move, but Holy Water is so broken in Castlevania. I swear only the Axe comes close.

I really like dagger in most of the games, but CV3 is holy water the whole way through.

Also, I haven't actually played with Sypha. Most of my playthroughs I take Grant for his mobility. But man, Sypha's melee is really useful.
