CastlevaniaRL is a fast paced roguelike in which your character must challenge the castle of count Dracula seeking to finish him off, after facing all kind of monsters in different environments into the Castle of Chaos. Each one of the six different classes is armed with an array of skills for both offense and support and gains power as they advance through the game.

The game features both console and graphics mode, as well as support for midi and mp3 music and wav special effects.


CastlevaniaRL dates from the 2005 7DRL challenge. The very simple game that was submitted evolved guided via a centralized RFE and Bug Report system, based on community feedback.

On june 2006, development of the game graphics version started due to the inclusion of Christopher Barret on the development team.

On september 2006, the game was exposed on a local University fair at Medell????n

The game is in continuous development and a graphics version is being actively mantained. A cellphone version is planned to be made as well.

The latest release version is v. 1.21. dated September 15th 2006
