Rose Colored Let's Play: Super Castlevania IV

Posted by Travis Goss Saturday, October 26, 2013
Since Halloween is just around the corner, I thought it would be best to play one of the greatest games from the 16-bit era, Super Castlevania IV, for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or SNES if you are a big fan of abbreviations.

Released in 1991, Castlevania IV demonstrated the capabilities of the then-new Nintendo system by showing off its massive color palette and Mode 7 effects; not to mention an incredible soundtrack thanks to the Nintendo S-SMP sound chip developed by Sony.

The game has a bit of a strange lore. If anybody has played the original 1987 Castlevania game and its 1988 sequel for the NES, you will know Dracula rises every one hundred years. Simon Belmont defeated the Count in both games. Here's what I mean: in the first game, Simon was cursed by Dracula after defeating him in the first game. In Simon's Quest, Simon must rid his curse by locating five different body parts which belonged to the Count.

This brings us to the fourth game in the series. It does appear this could be a complete remake/reboot of the first game. Or, maybe Simon is still carrying the curse?

Anyway, enough lore. Let's play Super Castlevania IV!
