Description from the back cover:

Castlevania was a cakewalk compared to this bloody curse.

You thought you had the Prince of Darkness defanged - eh, Simon Belmont? Well think again, 'cause according to a damsel in distress, evil Count Dracula has left a horrifying curse in his wake. And the only hope you have of ending the terror is to destroy his missing body parts!

Talk about your frightening quest, searching a maze of mansions, graveyards and dark, eerie forests - each guarded by man-eating werewolves, fire-throwing zombies and other devilish demons.

Your grim chances are kept alive in Transylvania, where cowardly villagers offer clues to the whereabouts of Dracula's remains. And where you'll purchase magic weapons, including silver knives and flame whips.

But beware the night. For when the sun disappears, Dracula's curse grows deadlier. And your chances grow dimmer and dimmer.

TRIVIA

Castlevania II - Simon's Quest for NES was released in December 1988 in North America.

This game is known in Japan as "Dracula II - Noroi no Fuuin".

There are slight differences between the original Famicom Disk and NES versions of the game. The obvious difference is the quality of the soundtrack which fully uses the advantages of the Famicom Disk sound chip. Then the Famicom version allows the player to same his progress onto the disk itself whereas the NES uses passwords. On another hand, the Famicom Disk version has loading times which sometimes affect the gameplay.
