|Title: Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (2nd Review)
Rom Player: NESticle
Synopsis: Castlevania is destroyed, Europe is freed, and the land is once again restored, but the townspeople do not know the fears about to rise upon them. Before the final blow was dealt to Dracula in the first Castlevania game, Simon was inflicted with a curse; while Dracula is dead once again for another century, Simon would fall ill and die. One town's priest told Simon that the only way to lift the curse is to find all of Dracula's 5 body parts and burn them, now join Simon in one of the first RPGs on the NES and fulfill Simon's Quest. Music is once again classical and famous, the gameplay is EXTREMELY difficult at times, but you will pull through. You are given (sorry to say) a complicated password feature, but what do you expect from an RPG password? Replay may not live up to it, but the game will. Travel Walachia Europe and destroy the Count forever!
Best Cheats: What to do with the White Crystal: This is your first journey. You must travel to the next town to the right of your starting town and find the Crystal knight at the top of the town. You'll automatically trade crystals.
What to do with the blue crystal: You must now find the river. You must activate the crystal by selecting it on start and duck down right next to the river (don't accidentaly go into it!). Soon, the screen will shift down, you'll hear a cool running water sound and you can now jump down into the underground cave. Then you must once again trade crystals at another town with the same gray colored knight.
What to do with the Red Crystal: If you've noticed before you must go to the side of a cliff which is a complete dead end. this is where ghosts appear and a weird fire flower is too. Activate the red crystal and kneel down next to the cliff, a weird tornado comes and picks you up, you're then transported to almost another world in the canyon.
