Simon's Quest
Dracula's Curse

Castlevania and Contra: Konami Collector's Series, released in 2002 for the PC, is a collection of five Konami hits from the days of the Nintendo Entertainment System: Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Contra and Super Contra. Additionally, the CD contains a Dance Dance Revolution demo. This package was during October of 2006 (and Halloween specifically) re-released for the download service GameTap, which under its multi-system service made available the individual titles mentioned above.

All of the games are perfect emulations of their NES counterparts; the only changes of note are the text differences found in Simon's Quest:


(1) For some reason, the password screen has been changed from the original, with consonants replacing any previous vowels. Also, passwords won't work if you replace the missing vowels with the consonants that took their place. Since you can save your game into the CD's memory anyway, this shouldn't be too much of a problem. (2) When you would collect a Dracula body part in the NES game, it would say, "You now prossess Dracula's (name of part)." Its spelling has been corrected.

Please refer to Castlevania and Contra's PC-version manual for information on the games themselves.
