Welcome to Super Castlevania 2: The site. This page will give
an insight to how and why I created Super Castlevania 2, an edited version of Castlevania 2,
and how you can play it on your computer.
As you can see, I took Castlevania 2 and put in new graphics and text, better colors, and
new characters and enemies, all from other well-known Nintendo games. You will also find links,
files, and music related to this and other Castlevania games.
||Here are compare and contrast pictures. On the left is my hack. On the right is the original Castlevania 2. Notice the new ground graphics, the improved colors, and of course the new enemies and new look for Simon.||
Hello. If you have ever played Castlevania 2 on Nintendo, you
know how addicting it was. The music, game play, and easily beatable
Dracula all added to the immense popularity of this game. Now, if
you have ever heard of emulation, you know how it is possible to play
those old cherished games like Castlevania 2 on
your computer. However, if you haven't heard of emulation, go to
Classic Gaming Newbie Guide
and read all about what emulation is and how it works.
So, if you know about emulation, then you probably also know about how you are able to alter the game to put in new graphics or translate currently untranslated games. Once again, if this is new to you, go to The Hacker's Guide to the World of NES Emulation.
So, this is MY hacked game. I took Castlevania 2, a game that provided me with many hours of enjoyment in the past, and added to it people and enemies and graphics from some of the other great Nintendo games. Currently in my game are people like Mario and Luigi, Link, Samus, Kirby, Kid Icarus, a fighter from Final Fantasy, and Toad. I have also taken enemies from the games that the characters above come from and placed them into my game. Try it out and I think you will agree that this game will stir up emotions of nostalgia and let you re-live, at least for a little while, those days of long ago!
Of course, you will need an emulator to play the game. Download the newest version of Nesticle for Windows 95 and Dos. This version of Nesticle is somewhat of a mystery, thus explaining the version number of x.xx. What I can tell you is that it is near perfect emulation, with the sound being much improved over the last version. To run Nesticle under Windows 95, you will also need dos4gw.exe in the same directory. Of course, you will also need the ROM to play the game, so download those aforementioned files and enjoy!
