As you can see here, the original Castlevania wasn't only on the NES, but also on the MSX computer. scrimpeh did on the MSX Castlevania what Phil Côté & Morrison did on the NES Castlevania.

This version is different in some important ways. For instance, you must collect a white key in each stage to advance to the next stage. The chain whip is lost after each boss battle. Some subweapons can be bought from sitting bystanders in white or red clothes.

This is an improvement of 29.03 over the original run thanks to a few new time-saving tricks.

Note: To play the OMR file, you'll need to have the Panasonic FS-A1WSX bios installed and openMSX 0.8.1.dev-12131 (or official 0.8.1).

In addition to the normal encode, an experimental WebM encode is available for download. Feedback would be appreciated.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
