Personal review
This is the first Castlevania game ever and it was perhaps the best-looking game for the Famicom/Famicom Disk System so far with great and varied background graphics and sprites. Music is also very good and memorable. Konami really understood early on how to program high quality games for that console. Playability is also quite good but there are a few issues. Most prominent one the fact that when you are hit by a monster you are pushed back quite a bit, which very often results in falling down platforms and to your death. In this Famicom Disk System version you can save your game's progress on disk, making it a bit easier than the US NES version, which was released several months later in 1987.
