Game History:
Castlevania is a video game series created and developed by Konami and localized for North American and European releases of Castlevania in 1987. Castlevania, was a typical platform game in which the player takes the role of Simon Belmont, a descendant of the Belmont clan, a bloodline of vampire hunters. He travels to Dracula's demonic castle, Castlevania, and fights his way through its monstrous denizens, eventually destroying Dracula himself. Belmont's main weapon is the Vampire Killer Whip, while the secondary weapons, inspired by the legends and folklore regarding vampires and related supernatural beings, are powered by Hearts, found by whipping candles. Common secondary weapons include a dagger,[4] and a bottle of holy water.

Over a hundred years ago when vampires boldly roamed the Earth, your ancestor drove a stake through the heart of an Evil Count. But he didn’t die! Enraged, the bloodthirsty Count placed a curse upon your ancestor and his descendants. As the evil Count’s next victim, you have a choice. Accept your fate. Or fight! The duel, of course, is to the death.

GAME PLAY: Steel yourself for battle and seek out the Count in his own dark, dank lair— Castlevania! Malevolent creatures and myriad deadly traps block your passage through a six-story deathtrap riddled with secret doors, and horrible surprises— the den of the villanous Count. Take courage! Crack a magic whip, and master a variety of effective weapons concealed in the cavern floor and walls. You can destroy the Count, SERIES and rid your house of the curse. But first, you must overcome rabid bats, zombies, ghosts, and other slimy nasties that no one has yet lived to describe!
