A game series produced by Konami in 1986. The first game Castlevania (1986) was made in Japan on the Famicom Disk System and brought to America on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The plot of the first game was as Simon Belmont you must kill Dracula before he destroys the world. The game was an instant success and later ported to the Commodore 64, MS-DOS, and the Commodore Amiga.
Here are my favorite Castlevania games:
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (1987)
Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (1989)
Castlevania Adventure II: Belmont's Revenge (1991)
Super Castlevania IV (1991)
Akumajou Dracula X68000 (1993)
Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo (1993)
Castlevania: Bloodlines (1994)
Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night (1997)
Castlevania: Circle Of The Moon (2001)
Castlevania: Harmony Of Dissonance (2002)
Castlevania: Aria Of Sorrow (2003)
Castlevania: Dawn Of Sorrow (2005)
In Konami's hit game Castlevania, Dracula's castle always crumbles to the ground or dissolves to particles.
