* BackThatLightUp: Basically, playing this on the original GBA is not recommended. Fortunately, just about any other system that plays GBA, from the SP (even the older frontlit SP is an improvement) to the {{DS}} Lite, solves this problem.

** A ''very'' well hidden easter egg gives a shoutout to an obscure {{Nintendo 64}} fighter called ''Rakuga Kids''. In a secret room hidden ''within'' a secret room, itself pretty difficult to find, there is a unique enemy, who will immediately run away from you before you can fight it. Figure out how to catch and kill it, and ,if you're very lucky, it will drop a Bear Ring. This item has no ostensible purpose other than lowering all of your stats by 100 when equipped. However, if you equip the ring and then use the Pluto+Black Dog combo that normally turns you in the aforementioned skeleton (and getting either of those cards is a GuideDangIt in itself), you instead will turn you into a strange green bear with a cannon on its head and its ass that shoots bear-shaped rockets out of the cannons and can drop bombs. It is a lot more agile than the skeleton, and can DoubleJump, but still dies in 1 hit. The bear, called Beartank, was one of the fighters in ''Rakuga Kids''.

* LostForever: One of Nathan's DSS Spells can summon a long-lasting storm of rapid homing projectiles, but only if you never got a subweapon during the game (you can't take them off).

Gameplay consists of exploring the castle in search of artifacts that will allow Nathan to overcome obstacles and push deeper inside, with the ultimate goal of confronting Dracula. Exploration and combat with enemies also yields items that will make Nathan more powerful. The most valuable are a series of tarot-like cards [[FightLikeACardPlayer which allow the casting of spells]]. Although the plot is threadbare and predictable, it is played up for all it's worth, with major bosses that would just otherwise just be [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere random monsters]] given purpose, if not exactly character.

* CardsOfPower: Nathan casts magic by combining DSS cards dropped by enemies. One attribute card + one action card grants a specific ability.

** Honestly, the entire game is a love letter to music from past games. Accompanying the four tracks original to the game, among others, are the intro theme and stage 2 theme from ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaBloodlines Bloodlines]]'' and final boss theme from ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse Dracula's Curse]]''.

** The obligatory "Vampire Killer" remix makes its appearance as the theme of the Observation Tower.

** Petrify make you unable to move for a while, and you must shake yourself free or take tremendous extra damage if an enemy smacks you.
** Freeze is the same as Petrify, except that you cannot break free manually, but rather wait until you thaw out. Small wonder why those Ice Demons were such DemonicSpiders.
