FINISHING THE REAL GAME
First you need to get the gold ring (beating succubus on Nightmare) and silver ring(going to the spiked hallway using spike breaker). Wear them when you're on the big clock. Clock will turn to 6:30 and the floor will open up.
You will speak to Maria and she will give you the HOLYGLASSES in where you would see belmont being possessed.
Go to belmont and wear the holyglasses and you will see the green ord on top of him. Dont kill belmont instead destroy the orb. Then you would go to a teleport station in where it would lead you to the inverted castle.
That's the level 2 of the game and you will fight stronger monsters and bosses, and also shaft(evil priest) and Dracula itself. You can easily finished the game when you can get Crissaeblade.
It's a drop item from the floating head monsters in where you can see the wolverines. It is actually located at the library of the inverted castle. It's a fast blade with a long distance from your point to the enemy.
Always make use of the faerie card or demon card to reveal secret rooms.
Have your bat card to level 99 and you will have 5 extra bats when you changed into bat. And easy way to level it up is to just stand infront of the hallway in the very beginning in where you can see a lot of mummies. Your bat will continously attacked them even if you're going to watch tv or doing something else. Cool huh?
To beat dracula and shaft, you need to get the 5 items of vlad from the bosses. You can see it in the relics. Then go to the clock and the ceiling which happens to be the floor on the upright castle will appear. The same place in where you spoke to maria for the holyglasses.
Secrets of the shield rod. Just combine it with any shield and press the square and circle together. Each shield has it's own special casting spell.
