Personal review

The best game for the old NES, period. Huge levels, multiple characters and extra paths make this one of the most innovative Castlevanias to ever hit the shelves. Hands down a Castlevania favorite.

Official description

It's a cursed world we live in (thanks to Drac!). So go forth young Trevor into the cold black night, where death lurks around every corner and evil lingers on every stone. And remember, if your courage and cunning are any less than magnificent or if you fail to choose the correct Paths of Fate, you'll be banished to the world of the undead, and zombies will rule until the end of time.

Description

Trevor Belmont, the origin of the famed Belmont vampire hunters, must destroy Count Dracula's reign of darkness over Europe. And so it begins the greatest Castlevania ever.
Dive into the quest: rescue pirates, mages and even vampires; and choose your path through a maze of incredible levels--broken bridges, haunted ships, swamps, towers, and even a Sunken City. Finally, find your way to Castlevania and a battle with the Count, and earn a place in the history of this great video game franchise.

Only the Japanese cartridge contained the VRC6 chip which improves the sound quality of the game.
