Dracula II - Noroi no Fuin is a platform/adventure game by Konami and is the second Akumajou Dracula released for the Famicom system. After vanquishing Dracula in the first game, the vampire slayer Simon Belmont is hoping to take a well-deserved break from his obligations. But things don't always turn out the way they should. Before dying, Dracula placed a curse upon the young man and, seven years later, Simon must retrieve and destroy the remains of the evil vampire to break it. Dracula's five body parts must be brought back the his castle and sealed away forever. This episode is a big departure from the series and unlike other installments, Dracula II includes major RPG elements such as experience points, shops and conversations with villagers and other townspeople. Time and especially day and night cycles are at the dynamic core of the gameplay and greatly affect the various enemies Simon encounters throughout his journey (each second equals four minutes in the game). Simon still uses his vampire killer whip as his primary weapon but he also has a choice of several sub-weapons such as the knives and the Holy Water. However, they are not scattered around each stage anymore and have become unique quest items. Hearts are the game's currency and can be used to purchase new items or to enhance the almighty whip. Finally the game features infinite continues and the only price the player has to pay for consuming all his lives is to lose his accumulated experience points.
