Reinhardt Schneider-Reinhardt comes from the Belmont family of vampire
killers,which for generations has battled

Reinhardtís  Weapons


This is a powerful weapon with medium range. The farther you are from the

projectile attacks.


The dagger is not as strong as the whip,but it is useful for enemies who are
in your face.

Carrie Fernandez-A young girl gifted with magical powers. Her destiny is clear
and she cannot turn away from it.
Armed with her magic and courage,she sets off defeat Dracula!

Carrieís Weapons


This attack has very long range,but it gets weaker if is fired at an enemy
that is far away. Hold B to charge the magic
and make it more powerful.

Like the Dagger,this is useful for enemies that are in your face.

press start. Select either Easy or Normal (I suggest Normal),then pick
Reinhardt or Carrie.

at times do different stages.


 1.Forest of Silence                                       Both
 2.Castle Wall                                               Both

 4.Underground Tunnel                     Yes                  No
 5.Underground Waterway                No                  Yes
 6.Castle Center                                            Both
 7.Duel Tower                                  Yes                  No

 9.Science Tower                              No                 Yes
 10.Sorcery Tower                             No                 Yes
 11.Room of Clocks                                        Both
 12.Clock Tower                                             Both
 13.Castle Keep                                              Both

Also,at times one will face a boss while the other faces a completly different
boss (Room of Clocks,for example)

One last thing: These levels are HUGE,so make sure you have plenty of time to
do them!


(7)Reinhardt Schneider Walkthrough

Level 1-The Forest of Silence

Enemies-Skeletons,Explosive Skeletons,Bats,Werewolf
Mini-Bosses-Giant Skeleton,Giant Werewolf
Boss-Giant Skeleton Rematch

As you begin the level,a few trees will crash down in front of you. Jump over
them,then use your dagger to destroy
the torches and grab the knife and red jewels. Then climb atop the broken
pillar and leap to the other. Destroy the
torch to get some Roast Beef.  Jump down,then follow the path until you see a
cinama. After this,three skeletons will
come to life and attack you! Whip the first two,then get the last one with
your dagger. 

Continue along until you reach a door. Use your whip to destroy the metal seal
in the middle,and then get ready for
battle. A giant skeleton will come crashing out. He isnít that tough to
defeat. Run under his legs then attack him from
behind. During the fight heíll call out little skeletons by banging his club
on the ground. When this happens,defeat the
skeletons and then attack the big guy again. Be on the look-out for Power
Ups,theyíll help out a lot. After youíve
done this about four times,heíll jump off a cliff and prepare to ambush you

Two platforms will rise up. Carefully jump across them,and defeat the
skeletons that appear. Follow the arrow to the
White Jewel and save your game,then head in the other direction. Go in the
little buildings and destroy the torches to
get Sun & Moon cards. Then use the stairs to leep atop the buildings and get
some red jewels and roast chicken. 

Now continue foward and leap over the ledges to reach a switch. Pull it,and be
prepared to face the second mini-boss.
This guy is a cinch. Just use your whip. But donít get too close,or heíll toss
you around and cause some damage.
Then leap back across the ledges and go back to the white jewel. Save
again,then go through the gate that just

Destoy the torch and grab the cross,then check the block to find some Roast
beef. There is also red jewels and a
power up in the other torches if you need them. Now,go foward and save you
game. Destroy the next two torches on
the path to find some Red Jewels and some more ledges you must leap across.
Pull the switch. Thereís no mini-boss
this time,but youíll have to make carefully timed jumps to get back across.
This will probaly take a few tries.

Go through the next gate,and destroy the skeletons for some much-needed items.
Enter the crypts to find some red
jewels and some roast chicken. You should see a skeleton standing on a ledge.
Use a cross or axe to kill him,or else
risk a trip into the poisonous water. Then leap to where he was standing,and
make another jump to reach the torch.
Inside is Special #1 (See Secrets section). Then jump back and leap over to
the other cliff.

Defeat the bats,and then head foward and a werewolf will appear. This guy is
tough. He is vicious at close range,so
use your whip to keep him away. Use a cross if you have it. When heís
dead,enter the crypt to fin a sun card. Then
save at the white jewel. Check the statue to find some roast chicken,then
follow the path. Defeat the skeletons and go
down the platforms carefully. Press the switch at the bottom,then climb back
up. Save,then head back to the area with
the 3 crypts. Press the switch there and grab the roast beef. Then go back to
the werewolf area,save,and go through
the next gate.

Now youíll have to face the Giant Skeleton again. Check the Boss section for
info on this fight. Now walk foward
and youíll see a cinama,and then enter the Castle wall. Congrats,you beat
stage 1.


(8)Carrie Fernandez Walkthrough 

Coming Soon



Skeletons-The first enemy youíll face. Just stand a safe distance away and
whip them or shoot them with magic. 

Explosive Skeletons-These guys are annoying. If crash into you,theyíll cause
damage,and if you kill them too
close,youíll also recieve some damage. I think you know what to do,but be

Bats-These guys are annoying,but not dangerous. Use your secondary weapon.

Werewolf-This is a cool enemy. Too bad he only shows up twice. He fast and
dangerous,so use a Cross if you have
it,or use your primary weapon and dodge his attacks as best you can.



These are,of course,the toughest enemies of all. They can be quite tricky,so
hereís how to beat them.

1.Giant Skeleton Rematch
Appears at The Forest of Silence

The giant skeleton is back,and heís meaner than ever! Take out his motorcycle
buddyís first or else theyíll bother you
the whole match. Then go after big boy. Heís faster and heíll attack you
more,but besides that,this match is pretty
much the same as the first. Heíll start losing limbs as you hurt him,starting
with his hand,his arm,and then his legs! He
may look defenseless now,but he still whack you and score some major damage.
Many players donít realize this.
Now,run in and give him the final blow!



Castlevania isnít complete without secrets! All of them found so far require
you to beat the game,so donít think you
can just cheat your way through the game!

Secret #1-Inside the forest of Silence,before you fight the werewolf there is
a torch in midair. Jump over and destroy
it,then grab the jewel. When you finish the game with this,you will be given
Hard mode.
