Konami has always managed to capture the gothic feel of the dark-middle ages with their great series. Each of the games is usually made up of multiple stages--sans Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and others like it, all of which utilize areas--with a boss guardian at their end. Click on the title link below to see the stages of each game in two forms: (1) Single screenshots with descriptions or (2) complete stage maps (if available)--see the bottom of each page for the second such option. If you would like to zip directly to a boss character and its description, click on its names where it's listed in the stage table. Furthermore, if you'd like to hear the stage/area theme, click on the name of the song (if available); it'll open up in a second tab so that you can listen to it while you read.
