Castlevania Game Boy

Halloween is over, but that doesn't mean you can't drink in the coolness of this custom-painted Castlevania Game Boy. French artist Oskunk used a damaged first generation model for this design. It's a shame that the screen is broken.

Considering how much I loved Castlevania: The Adventure when I was a kid, seeing a handheld like this would have blown my six-year-old mind. So what if you climbed ropes in that game rather than going up or down stairs? It was still Castlevania in my hands that wasn't the horrible Tiger Simon's Quest LCD system that my grandmother picked up at a yard sale years before.

So, given my first handheld Castlevania experience, those quirky Game Boy titles were amazing.
