Castlevania for the Atari 2600

Ever hear of the game Roc N Rope for the Atari 2600? It was not that popular or well received when it was first released in 1984 based on the Konami arcade game. However, thanks to this game we now can play Castlevania on our Atari 2600 emulator.

Here is the description from its creator:

New Castlevania 2600

This is a graphical hack of Roc ‘N Rope – You are William Belmont who is traveling through Dracula’s bizarre castle. He has too use his whip not only too whip his enemies, but also scale the castle. How far will you make it?

Here is gameplay footage from Roc N Rope for the Atari 2600:

Looks pretty cool and you can download it from Atari Age.

I asked Julius if he plans on having cartridges of this game made and he stated that yes they will be made. There are a few demo carts out there right now. More later in time. Check out this little clip from SBP.
