How to play

Castlevania II - Simon's Quest(tm)



The second coming of Count Dracula

You're Simon Belmont, bravest of the brave, boldest of the bold, a gothic
warrior respected by kings.

You earned your praise, not by crushing Viking invaders or Turkish hordes, but
by destroying the evil Count Dracula in a duel to the death at Castlevania.
But your victory proved painful, as the wounds inflicted during the duel 
slowly gnawed at your soul.

One day, though, a beautiful maiden appeared. With a soft voice she warned 
that you were possessed by the Count's curse. She said your only hope of
destroying the curse and healing your scars was to find the five body parts of
Count Dracula and burn them all in his Castle, ending forever the reign of
the Prince of Darkness.

Suddenly, like most beautiful visions, she began to fade. And as you reached 
to touch her, she spoke her final words -

"Fear not, brave Simon, for if you have the courage to risk your life, you 
will find the strength to win again."


How to play

In this one-player adventure your quest is to discover Count Dracula's 5
missing body parts. Upon finding these gruesome items, proceed to Dracula's
Castle, where you'll again duel to the death with the Count. But heed the
spirit's warning and find the Magic Cross before entering his domain.

This quest won't be easy, for you must battle hideous fiends who stalk the 
land. Fortunately, the longer you survive, the greater your Experience rating
and the less vulnerable your troubled soul.

Secrets to this adventure can be found as you wander around friendly 
Transylvania. Stop and talk to the villagers, because these helpful strangers
will give you clues. Some are also merchants who'll sell you weapons and other
mystical items. Your purchasing power depends on how many hearts you've 
collected during your confrontations with evil.

Another warning from the spirit: a few friendly villagers are town pranksters,
and their clues are false. Of course, you'll never know until you take the
