Super Castlevania IV - Beat the Game

I finally passed the hell that is level B-2. It is a totally a Battletoads level. You just have to memorize exactly what to do and when.

After beating it, there is an end of game boss rush where fortunately when you continue you generally only have to beat the boss you just died fighting.

The Dracula fight was interesting. It wasn't hard to figure out what to do (his pattern is pretty easy to see), it was just hard to execute. Sort of like the fight with Paula Abghoul and Fred Ascare, except there you feel like the way jumping works hinders you a bit where versus Dracula, it is pretty much all your fault when you get hit. Really, only when I got greedy did I take damage.

After you beat the game, it starts over in "hard mode". I played it a bit to see the differences. Basically, it seems that enemies are tougher, do more damage to you, you have less time, and there are some additional enemies in places. I enjoyed this game, but it is definitely not worth going through it again.
