The duo of developers Dr. Mario and Optoman come together to bring fans an ambitious hack of the classic Castlevania and present a brand new game from the ground up altering not only graphics and music but items, levels, and bosses for a ‘true to spirit’ Castlevania experience.
Holding true to the design and concept of Castlevania, this hack presents a fast-paced and hard hitting challenge that requires precision and awareness to master but is overall intuitive to play and easy to get in to. The new designs and concepts will easily entice veteran players who can be sure that their previously mastered skills will not go to waste.
This hack feels like a spiritual successor to Castlevania offering an all new story, protagonist, and antagonist. Castlevania Chorus Of Mysteries offers a somewhat increased difficulty, likely due to the new mechanics that many of the enemies have which cause the player to think and react in new ways. This hack is certainly something to bring back the nostalgia of first attempting to perfect Castlevania.
The title screen is heavily customized from the original and emulates the Castlevania aesthetic perfectly.
The graphics in this hack have been entirely overhaul with all new level designs and completely new sprites for the protagonist, monster, and bosses. Players will encounter new effects along with new weapons.

A number of the weapons that were present in the original game can be found in this game as well with similar or identical functionality, however, there are also some new weapons to play around with such as Laurels, a plant that will grant your temporary invincibility at he cost of eight hitpoints. Players will also experience new enemies and bosses that function in completely unique ways apart from the enemies seen in the original game.
