i love that game i bought it the day it came out on the gamecube. and pretty much nobody i know has ever played or even heard of it but i love it. try beating it on hard that took me so many tries i pretty much have the whole game memorized. i think that is the only way you can beat it. i would love to see more games like it come out on the wii
oh and as for Super Castlevaina IV summary you start out at the gates of Dracula's castle you work your way all the way up to his chambers. you play as on character throughout the game and his main weapon is a whip but you can pick up sub weapons such as a Knife, cross (acts kinda like a boomerang), holy water, axe, and a clock that stops time. To uses these sub items you have to have hearts, which up pick by whipping candles and such. Each stage has a boss you fight at some time in the level for example on one of the levels you fight Medusa and on other you fight two ghost dancers. The game is long enough probably take you 2 or 3 hours the first time through it. This a pretty difficult game with some tough boss fights and is well worth the $8 it cost to buy on the VC. I have been playing this game since i was like 7 years old and i still love it.
