Description Nathan Graves starred at the corpse. The submachine guns had swiss-cheesed the woman's body, and now her blood oozed along the cobblestone bricks of the back alley.

Why the dark-hair lady had come to this dangerous part of Bucharest he did not know. Her stiff grey eyes gazed at him, unmoving. But that is was Nathan expected.

A siren approached and the loud steps of policemen came from several of the neumerous alley ways.

Nathan just stood there as the officials surrounded the dead body and began to yellow tape the perimiter. Then an old ragged woman Nathan had never seen before hobbled onto the scene.

The woman pointed a finger at Nathan and burst out, "HE DID IT! HE MURDERED HER!!!"

The cops turned to him and raised their batons. He did not know why... But he ran.

Welcome to the begining of the fourth Castlevania series for N. I have started the levels out easy because I like people who play this series to slowly improve their skills as they play each level.

This time around to the CV series I am offering prizes.

You will also please note that there are two two crosses made of gold in this map. The completion demo to show both of these crosses being gathered will get this map dedicated to them.

The first completion demo will get an RCD. For those of you who do not know what an RCD is I will explain. Rate-Comment-Demo, an honorable offer by which the winner of this prize may link a map of his/her own to me. I am then bound to rate, comment and supply a demo for that map.

On a sidenote, I would like as much contructive critism as possible. But please bear in mind that this level is ment to be as the tags describe.

and did they really use caution tape in (approx.) 1920's Romania?


wow, quite the start to the series. I liked this map a lot. The lightly sprinkled puzzle feature was nice, and what I mean by that is every time I played it I realized a faster way to do it; I started off going the long way around for things, etc. I can't think of anything that I would change, though it seems like a little something somewhere could be changed... perhaps (maybe the bottom right? That gold cross wasn't a challenge to get at all (I know it's supposed to be easy, but still I thought the crosses were more of a challenge) and the one-ways were at first a bit annoying, until I realized that it helps to just fall properly). This feels like a solid 4, but because I can't really think of whatever may be wrong and for the sake of the CV series it gets a 5 ;)
