While I understand that game design was not perfected in the nintendo age, Simons Quest was an unworthy successor of the first castlevania. The thought of an rpg is pretty cool, but the password is too long and I cannot figure out where to go. The gameplay is great but nowhere near as good as the first. The grim reaper fight is humorably easy, and there are little bosses to begin with. The rpg is poorly executed and confusing, and the people give you false information. The way you find hidden areas are so complicated, you might as well just be trying to find the square root of pi. My biggest complaint is dracula. He looks like death, and is way too easy to kill, but the nail that seals the coffin is when you die three times, you lose all your hearts. This game is so bad I gave it two stars just out of pity. The only game I can find that is worse than this game is Dr. Jekkyl and Mister Hyde, but this is all my opinion. Other people love it, some people hate it. Its like Zelda 2. The Graphics are crazy improved, but I cant still accept the fact that I could beat Dracula on the first try.
