The Castlevania game on the NES / Nintendo Entertainment System is a very challenging game and can be quite frustrating at times, Hopefully using the below cheats and codes will help you to beat this game.

  • Easy Lives  Stage 2 – If you hit the candle in Stage 2 that drops a bag of money worth 700 points, you can then head down the adjacent stairs into the lower chamber. Immediately return to the previous screen and hit the candle for 700 more points. You can repeat this process as often as you like, quickly gaining points that allow you to gain an extra life every 30,000 points. You will lose a life whenever the timer reaches 0, but you should be able to gain enough points that you come out ahead, as long as you’re willing to repeat the tedious process (and quickly enough).

  • 2 Secret Endings – Successfully complete the game by defeating Dracula.  To view the new endings, enter as a password, either:

  • Easy Grim Reaper Kill – The Grim Reaper at the end of the fifth level is arguably the hardest boss in the game – harder than even Dracula himself. However, there’s a quick and easy way (some might call it cheap) to kill him. During his stage, find the Holy Water sub-weapon, and hold onto it for dear life. When you finally get to fight Grim Reaper at the end of the stage, you can use the Holy Water to decimate the foe. Since there are raised platforms on both sides of the stage, wait until the enemy floats over or near one of them, and toss Holy Water. This will damage him and freeze him, allowing you to chuck Holy Water after Holy Water. You can kill him in seconds with this technique, before he’s able to chuck even one scythe your way.

  • Unlock A Harder Game – To unlock a harder version of the game, beat the game once through and then play it again from the menu without starting the game over again. You’ll be presented with the identical game as before, with all six levels in tact, but it will be much harder.

  • Play Without Music – At the title screen, let the demo play twice and press Start once you see the title screen for the 3rd time

  • Flashing statue – Watch first demo and when simon gets whip press start. Start game and statue will flash!
