Online version of Castlevania for NES. Castlevania (Akumajō Dracula) is a side-scrolling platform game developed and published by Konami, originally released for the Family Computer Disk System in 1986. It is the first game in Konami's Castlevania video game series. Castlevania uses platform gameplay and is divided into six blocks of three stages each, for a total of 18 stages. Players control Simon Belmont, who has entered Castlevania to defeat Count Dracula. Simon can move, jump, crouch, climb stairs, and use a magic whip as his primary combat weapon. The player fights a boss character at the end of each block, and must win the battle and pick up an orb before time runs out in order to advance. The ultimate goal is to defeat Dracula at the end of Stage 18, triggering the collapse of his castle and allowing the player to restart the game at increased difficulty...

NES Console

Online emulated version of Castlevania was originally developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), an 8-bit third-generation home video game cartridge-based console produced by Nintendo, first released in Japan as the Family Computer (commonly known as the Famicom) in 1983. The NES, a face-lifted version, was released internationally in the following years. The NES featured a number of groundbreaking games, such as the platform game Super Mario Bros, the action-adventure game The Legend of Zelda and the action game Metroid. As one of the best-selling gaming consoles of its time, the NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983.

The game controller used for both the NES and the Famicom features an oblong brick-like design with a simple four button layout: two round buttons labeled `A` and `B`, a `START` button, and a `SELECT` button. Additionally, the controllers utilize the cross-shaped joypad, designed by Nintendo employee Gunpei Yokoi, for Nintendo Game & Watch systems, to replace the bulkier joysticks on earlier gaming consoles' controllers.
