Castlevania – Circle of the Moon (GBA) THWARTED!

Circle of the Moon coverGuhh! Death’s second form is quite breathtakingly hard. Fortunately you’re free to go and find a save point after his first form. Which is just as well, because I’ve spent well over three hours play time being killed by Dracula, going off and getting up a level, coming back, getting killed, levelling again, etc. By the time I finally defeated him I was level 51 and started the fight at level 46.

Anyhoo – I ended up equipping as much defensive gear as I could and then staying as far away as possible at the top of the room, listening for his rushes (74% health lost in one rush == gnot gnice). Anyway – he sometimes does two rushes in a row, sometimes three and sometimes four – no way to tell except to listen for the rush sound, wait and see if there’s one immediately afterwards and then rushing down to find him and hit him with a thunderbird summon if not.

So there he is – ganked horribly. And even though I’m in the middle of Final Fantasy III, Puzzle Quest, and Children of Mana, I must start Portrait of Ruin, just to remind myself what Castlevania games became like when they weren’t as ROCK HARD as Circle of the Moon. An utterly, utterly ACEBEST game.
