Akumajou Dracula AGA - Castlevania for the Amiga, and it still looks amazing in this playable prototype update

We've certainly played our fare share of Castlevania inspired games over the years, especially the most impressive Castlevania Spectral Interlude, which we had the pleasure of playing on the ZX Spectrum which was created by Sanchez. But today thanks to another heads up by Saberman, we've been told the Castlevania prototype, which the developer is calling 'Akumajou Dracula AGA' and using Earok's Scorpion Engine. Has recently been updated with the "Vampire Killer" soundtrack; a change which features great Paula 4 channels rendition by the talented musician Estrayk/Capsule^Scoopex, based on the original by Satoe Terashima.

Castlevania was and still is an incredible action platformer, that even today can be played via emulation or through an NES and give you hours worth of enjoyment. Now however thanks to Dante 3D dev, you can play not only an updated prototype which I mentioned above, but it features the whole first level which is playable with its sections (1-1, 1-2 etc) right up to the boss, and the basic "framework" for the game is set such as the main character with whip and secondary weapon. And that's just a brief write up for this update but for further information, please make sure to visit the link below.

  1. A comment just to remember that Castlevania was also released on the Amiga at the time, with an official Konami port released in 1990: https://www.lemonamiga.com/games/reviews/view.php?id=411 - This new version is much better, but also on an old ECS Amiga you could play a version similar to the NES one with a slightly better graphics, since 1990.
