Following a challenge proposed at Pixelation, I decided to recreate Castlevania's final battle. This artwork was made following NES restrictions for palette and tile count/placement. Here are the tiles used, and the green area are the tiles I saved (yes, a mess, I know):

Even though the challenge proposed an enhancement, I went a little crazy and made much more than the original room had. But I tried to maintain the signature objects (casket in the center, two columns by the sides, windows). Here's what it originally looks like:

I love the use of the orange and the pink!

I hope your version is easier to beat than the original!

I remade the Holy Water item, but I didn't remake the status bar (wasn't the point of the challenge). Though I might, now that you mentioned it.

I don't think you went crazy at all.  Looks terrific.  Makes the original look crappy, even.
Your Dracula does look a bit more "elfin" though - more "powerful" than "monstrous and evil."  Just felt like pointing that out.
EDIT: you didn't do the items and stats and stuff.  How come?

Pretty cool

The ambiance and background are great, so dark and gloomy, great fit. But in my opinion it's the dracula sprite that steals the show. Thanks for sharing.

Looks awesome! After zipping through pixelnation thread, I'd love to see some of these changes put into roms hacks.

Oh hell yeah.

Loooooove this, really great stuff.

There's definitely a better sense of depth.

love the background, especially the casket

I mean, Castlevania was already pretty evocative back in the day, but realizing it could have looked like this is kinda amazing.  It's like you've invented the NES Style HD Remake.

Just...  Bravo!

Brilliant stuff! I've been following the thread on pixelation, as well. You should post it! 

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 3/30/2016 01:33

Awesome work! You should post it on Pixelation as well!

Daymn! However did you manage to make the NES colors work so harmoniously together? Such an awesome scene.

JuPa98 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/29/2016 20:08

Looking great :D

StoneStephenT (Level 8 Ruby) @ 3/29/2016 15:19

Holy hell, that looks amazing.
