Whether it's the imaginative art styles, the wondrous music, or the deep, emotional stories, the very best video games (Castlevania, in this case) have a way of bringing out the dreamers in all of us. It's these factors and their derived inspiration that drives the truly talented to take the next step and dive into the field of game development--to touch others in much the same way. Some create unique works steeped in game-universe mythology, while others more closely follow the template and supply only a personal touch. This page acknowledges all such work, as embodied by all categories listed below. Click the desired link to zip down to your games of choice.

Rearrangements

It's in developing a rearrangement that the game-maker rips graphical or mechanical elements directly from existing titles and uses them in the creation of a unique work. In contrast to hacks, which simply redecorate original efforts, rearrangements offer unique experiences based off of familiar ideas; personal additions include the likes of new soundtracks, weapon systems and sub-mechanics. The process is simple: Download the file, unzip it, and click the executable to begin playing.

Castlevania Fighter, as bluntly named, is a M.U.G.E.N.-based fighting game featuring a number of iconic Castlevania characters as you remember them from the games.
