By request, here's a new and different look at the second loop through Castlevania 3. I've posted a second loop video before, but that one showed more ideal circumstances that don't necessarily tell the whole story. It's easy to get into a serious jam in this game if you lose the best powerups (Holy Water, Watch). What then? Watch for some ideas.
Man, it's been a long time since I've played this. I needed quite a few continues, particularly on the level with the triple-coffin boss.
No commentary this time. :( Still, the video shows what it needs to show, so hopefully you'll enjoy it.
