Akumajo Dracula II aka Castlevania II - Simon's Quest

version: jp, w/ cards - year: 1987 - developer: konami - publisher: konami - format: famicom disk system, 1 disk - condition: mint - rarity: uncommon

I am ashamed to admit that I still need to play this game...

 

Simon Quest II was the 1st Castlevania game to include adventure / rpgs elements

 

Akumajou Dracula II was shipped with a random Simon's card. I don't know how many unique cards exist but they are very hard to find.

Review - This version of Simon's Quest II is basically identical to the western version, except for some minor changes in the saving system.

Also, new locations load, since the game is on disk.

It is interesting to notice that these disks do not have a protection like normal floppies would do. They must be handled carefully to avoid damage.

The booklet is all color, and features some hilarious art (that really looks naive compared to modern Castlevania games!) along with a nice color map of Simon's World.

Aside from the exotic format on which the game runs, this version of Castlevania doesn't have much to offer in terms of additional features compared to the cart vers.

All in all, I would say that it is for collectors only!

Bottom line: to be played.
