Introduction

Castlevania: Rondo of Blood was released only in Japan in 1993 on the PC Engine with the CD add-on. It was later ported to the SNES as Dracula X.

Improvement

This is a 103 frames improvement over the Published movie
The 2 first stages have been improved by small optimisations there and here, mainly swaping damage from the rocks with regular ennemys, because killing the rocks was faster, also small changes on heart management was introduced because of that strategy change, some lag in 2-2 can be improved eventually, richter any% movie does include some of thoses changes, but have different outcomes in stage2
The whole rest is a basic copy/paste from the actual publication (very lucky on this), some improvements on maria are possible tought, like suggested in the 100% movie
