Castlevania II: Simon's Quest Review Rewind

Dracula’s Revenge

It was common practice for game developers to make radical design changes for the first sequel of a popular game in the early NES days. It was no different with Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. Released in North America in 1988, Konami decided that a few changes were in order.

Backloggers Anonymous Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Part 2

The Halloween special we finished before Christmas. We're just that lazy.
