Ended up getting an extra thousand after the screen shot just before getting killed. :skull:





I've never really played this Castlevania before; any advice for the branching paths?



The only things that really matter in the different routes are which companions you find and whatever boards you might find easier to handle. So actually it's just a matter of preference.

This is nothing special. I just didn't feel like playing it again and going for points. It's too long and can be pretty cheap. If someone posts a better score on here, then maybe I'll give it another go. Until then, maybe this can help function as a means of credibility.

Well, this happened last night.  Been working on completing all the different routes and getting in some practice of Loop 2 (Hard Mode).  Took me nearly six hours.


Insane score.  You're a machine!  Updated the scoreboard:  https://neshsc.neocities.org/Games/Castlevania_III_Draculas_Curse.html.
