W.T.F – Castlevania Adventure

Today’s W.T.F is Castlevania Adventure on the Game Boy, the game was made by Konami.
Here is the story/plot that was written on the back of the box

A challenge you cant walk away from!
After getting his wings clipped in Castlevania and Simon’s quest, the death defying count has risen again.
Desiring revenge more than blood he’ll descend upon your Game Boy with fangs glistening by the light of the silvery full moon.

To survive his maze of torture chambers and vampire crypts, you must unlock the castle’s secrets by locating hearts,crystals and crosses. You must also possess the strength to master whip, which wards of unearthly evils like the she worm.

So risk your neck and accept Drac’s challenge.
Because if you fail to destroy him now, he will rule the night forever”

Now with a story like that you would expect a epic game,but not quite, enjoy my first {maybe my last} W.T.F video and find out what went horribly wrong with this game.

    Great WTF video mate, I really love the way you did it.
    IT worked really well on your own style as you picked the game apart well,
    you point all the flaws in the game and all the negative stuff.

    and it was great you did mention that music was really good as I agree.

    One of the reasons i started doing WTF’s was because sometimes it is fun playing crappy game(and when i did start the WTF series I had never even or heard of AVGN, who i despise with a vengeance) you did a great WTF as you intelligently picked out the cons of this game without resorting to swearing.

    Great video and once again it works because you did it in your own style which works perfectly…. please more WTF’s:)

    Great video mate Konami did the same with Contra on the Playstaion i think it was called C The Contra Adventure, the first level was great but the rest of the game was terrible.
    And the first Playstaion Contra: Legacy of War was crap aswell.

    Don’t make it your last mate I wanna see come more Asperger Gamer style W.T.F.s.

    I’d certainly would love to see more WTFs from you! This is an excellent video, and your review style suits it perfectly. You’re certainly a much better speaker on your vids than I am… I stutter too much and always run out of things to say!

    I’ve never played this one (or any of the CastleVania games for that matter… someone shoot me now!), but by the looks of it it looks OK compared to other games I’ve played so maybe this game is more ‘disappointing’ then ‘crap’.

    Nice and great and balanced opinion on a pretty naff game, its hard not to rage at these games but you manage to do it quite nicely sir, no this is not one of the best games games on the gameboy and its not a good castlevania one either…not to the usual Konami standard anyway

      I gotta agree with Tony, it’s hard talking about a game with out letting all the anger and swearing out lol

      But yeah not the greatest castlevania game and also not the worst lol, I’ve got my next WTF planned on a certain Castlevania game:)

      Can anyone guess which one it is?

      Good bid as always mate:)

    This video brings back memories.

    I have to disagree with you about the game though as I really enjoyed playing this as a kid. I never got past level three with the raising spikes, That was the most frustrating part of the game for me. The music was excellent as well as you said.

    Tanks for the video
