Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (originally known as 悪魔城伝説 or Akumajō Densetsu, meaning "Legend of the Demon Castle") is the story of Trevor Belmont's battle against Dracula from the times before Simon's battle in Castlevania. In this complex and difficult game, there are three playable allies whom Trevor can recruit: Alucard (Dracula's son), Grant DaNasty (a pirate captain), and Sypha Belnades (a mystic warlord).

This game has a technically high-quality soundtrack because it uses a VRC6 sound chip that works in the Japanese Famicom but not in the NES. Thus, the movie was made with the Japanese version of the game instead of the USA version.

This movie takes the path that recruits Alucard. It is about 39 seconds faster than the previous movie, played by Genisto. There's also a Grant path movie and a Sypha path movie.

This is the story of Dracula's curse from the times before the first Castlevania game. The original name of the game is 悪魔城伝説 (Akumajou Densetsu, meaning "Legend of the Demon Castle").

This movie features the Grant path, and is about half a minute faster than the previous version and 5 minutes slower than the Alucard path played by Genisto. There is also a Sypha path movie.

This game has a different sound than most other NES games, because of a special VRC6 chip used in the game cartridge. The chip was only shipped in the Japanese versions, which is why the USA version soundtrack sounds poorer, even though it features the same melodies.

This is the story of Dracula's curse from the times before the first Castlevania game. The original name of the game is 悪魔城伝説 (Akumajou Densetsu).

This movie features the Grant path, which hasn't been featured previously at this site.
There is also a Sypha path movie and an Alucard path movie, of which the Alucard path movie is the fastest.

Like all of the Mortal Kombat games, MKII is about warriors fighting in a tournament for inspecific power and fame. Shang Tsung is chosen for his ability to transform into other characters.

This movie aims to demonstrate as many quirks and fatalities of the game as possible. Examples include two Shang Tsungs with a Raiden child, a headless Reptile eating Kitana's head and a bloody clone of Jax. The AI is also humiliated.

The author's comments page is a definitely recommended reading for this movie.

Note: The movie contains semi-realistic violence to be expected with the Mortal Kombat series.

Note: The movie is rated PG-13.

Like all of the Mortal Kombat games, MKII is about warriors fighting in a tournament for inspecific power and fame. Shang Tsung is chosen for his ability to transform into every other character (except the two non-playable characters), and a different fatality is used on every level (despite the extra time that it takes to do so). The run focuses more on entertainment than finding the fastest way to win.

Each round is a flawless victory, despite being hit by an attack that doesn't register any damage.

Another game in the Simpsons series. This one takes a bizarre trip through Bart's imagination; fighting amoeba, smashing psychotic appliances, and transforming into Bartzilla.

Of course the author handles these bizarre situations with expert precision.
