Castlevania RemixCastlevania Hack for Nintendo: Nintendo Entertainment System
<< Go to Castlevania hacks list
Castlevania Remix is a hack of Castlevania which incorporates the use of a few simple tones for the palette in order to create a bit of a sepia/black-and-white quality to the game, which lends itself very well to Castlevania, making it look more like a silver-age era monster film, which is definitely where the idea for Castlevania originated. Some might scoff at the use of a palette like this, but making the graphics look this detailed on the NES with a small set of colors is no small feat. Besides the graphical changes, the level layouts are also changed, and in some spots itâ€™s a lot more difficult, and in others itâ€™s easier. One thing to watch out for, though, is a distinct lack of hearts, which makes bosses a lot harder to defeat since you will only get off a few shots with your weapons before having to resort to your whip. Oh, and also be on the look-out for camoflaged staircases in a few spotsâ€“ if you canâ€™t find them, you may find yourself stuck. Also of interest is that the soundtrack has been rearranged slightly, and in some spots modifiedâ€“but the sound hacks still need a little work. Perhaps in a future version.

Fun to play, good job on changing the backgrounds, but it's all monochrome. It looks like a GameBoy title and everything is very dark which makes some monsters almost blend in with the background. Where's all the enhanced palettes and graphics??
this downloads only an .exe i call bs on this one. also the cv3 remix hack contains an exe...
sad person says:
I've patched my Castlevania1 USA rom using the exe on Ubuntu Linux. I started the patched rom. I first get a revamped title screen. But when I press START, two PRESS START logos appear, one flashing and the other one not. Then I see a weird looking Simon walking left on a grey screen and crouching at the middle of the screen. The game crashed after that.
