RingtoneAttack - Session # 9 - Castlevania

Posted on December 18, 2013 - 1:30pm by fabio73


Each RingtoneAttack session contains one classic video game soundtrack that’s been converted into ringtones.  All ringtones are 30 seconds in length unless the original track is less than 30 seconds.  Four separate audio formats will be available for download, and will comprise of two lossless formats, ALAC and FLAC, and two lossy formats, AAC and LAME MP3.  Audio encoding information is specified below each specific audio format download link; for you audiophiles out there.

Once you’ve downloaded your preferred audio format, you’ll notice there are some audio files labeled, (Edited), at the end.  Ringtones without this labeling, contain the first 30 seconds of that particular song track.  Ringtones with the (Edited) suffix contain either more of the main verse of that song track, like when an intro building up to the main verse of the song track is a bit long, or a different verse/segment within the song track altogether.

WELCOME g1s!  I’m fabio73, and THIS… is RingtoneAttack!  I’ll be bringing you the highest quality video game ringtones on the internet for all your mobile phone devices! 

Castlevania is one of my favorite series for the Nintendo Entertainment System… hell… on any system.  The first Castlevania game I remember owning was Castlevania III Dracula’s Curse; which I find interesting because you would think that I would have owned Castlevania first.  My parents knew which games I had in my library, so having them purchase Castlevania III before Castlevania always puzzled me.  Not that it really matters much because both are really great games, despite their difficulty.  It got me thinking though… when was it that I first played the original Castlevania?  I couldn’t have played 3 before 1, could I?  Yet, for the life of me, I can only remember playing Castlevania after I already owned Castlevania III.

Of what I do remember, I never owned Castlevania until I commandeered the copy I own today from my Aunt Clarice’s house.  This is the earliest memory I have of playing Castlevania, is at her house.  For some reason she had a copy of the game.  I don’t know why she had it as she mostly played Tetris.  So I decided that there was really know reason for her to want this game so I just “borrowed” it from her.  She obviously didn’t miss it because she never asked for it back, though I knew she wouldn’t.

I’ve never completed Castlevania even though the farthest I got was to Dracula.  That first phase is extremely annoying because Dracula always manages to reappear right where I’m standing and by the time I figure out which way to walk so I don’t take damage, I take damage.  I don’t know if this is by design or I just have rotten RNG, but he always manages to do it.

Alright everybody!  It’s time FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR, your ringtone downloads!  CLICK THE MUSIC!
