w00t! I counter-stopped Haunted Castle on Stage 40. Once you go over 999,000. Your score actually drops back down to 980,000!
It's bugged and 1 million can't be reached! Hahaha. Well I'm done with this game.

About 2-3 weeks. Its all about heart management really. Game is a lot more forgiving then most give it credit for.

Congratulations on your high score. That’s awesome work! I got to tell you though I kind of feel like Brian Kuh in the King of Kong. Only if I could distracted you with “Possible Counter Stop on Haunted Castle if anybody interested”.

I’ve beaten the US M and K versions, Not to much difference in them except how the bats fly so I’m pretty sure you could do really well on the M version. Just haven’t played the Japanese one so not sure how it stacks up. I think I’ve beaten it twice and died on the 3rd run through on M. Did you use the spammer clock?

I just stumbled upon this thread looking for Side Art for my Haunted Castle cab. Couldn’t help myself but to join and comment after seeing this high score. Good work man! Now could you hook me up with some Side Art?

The clock is required for getting this far. There's an EVIL bug on Stage 4, you often randomly lose your powerups and start with the basic whip. But if this happens, the very first mummy will drop the sword. And you need to freeze him cause it takes 8 hits with the whip. And if you don't get the sword back, you may as well give up.

Nice to meet another fan of this game. In truth it's not a "good game", but it is a lot of fun. I love the "B-movie" feel of the whole thing, and the music is fantastic. I haven't touched the English versions. I prefer to stick the original Japanese version, plus the J-pcb costs a fortune (much rarer then the English versions), so I really don't want to spend anymore money on this silly game. :awe: Sorry no side art, I don't think the J-pcb ever had side art, in those days, Japanese arcades were full of generic JAMMA-tables (which is what I own today), so it just had the 2 instruction cards as far as I'm aware.

Other day I did Beat Dracula with the Flame. Pretty awesome how much health it took off. Not sure how you would beat the Rock Monster without the Clock.

I'm really in love with this game. I'm a huge Castlevania fan and this use to be one I couldn't stand. Now after spending time I'm very much in love with it. I'd take it over Lord of Shadows any day.
