True indeed Tom.

Actually, sinse many developers, ---- particularly for arcade games rarely do their homework as far as research goes, you might even improve upon things.


For instance, instead of just cobbling together a skeletal horseman boss and giving him a good name, ---- as was done with Raodane, why not have him be an actual resurrected skeleton of a historical character, brought back as a skeleton under the vampire's control?

imagine one of the three musqiteers as a skeleton, ---- or martial su of The napolionic wars?

That would be both a cool boss, and an interesting bit of plot, ---- and not one included in original castlevania.

Even if the boss was just a smack and avoid affair in the best arcade tradition, this could make things much more fun!

Beware the grue!

Hi Dark,
Absolutely. That's why I've been thinking off and on of doing a good Castlevania clone. The game is so generic that no one can come and pull the plug on it by screaming about copyrights. It is like, 'copyrights? What copyrights?" Take the Belmont's out of the picture, drop the Castlevania name, and a few miner modifications here and there and bingo. No more copyright problems to worry about. Hehehehe!

True tom, however so many of the concepts are fairly generic I don't see the problem.

You could for instance have a skeletal horseman with a lance, ---- just not called Raodain, a giant flying bat boss just not referd to as the zap bat etc.

I'm surprised that the dracula novel is pd, ---- but if so that offers some interesting possibilities, ---- Mina dracula as a boss? or Lucy?

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
