A couple of weeks ago I revived my old MSX2 computer (SONY HB-F500F). I immediately sourced from Japan a cartridge of Vampire Killer edited by Konami in 1986. The plot is basic, but my recollection of the game was delightful. Simon Belmont (シモン・ベルモンド), you, must find Dracula in his vast satanic castle and slay him! Few tried to turn the beast into whipped cream but failed miserably. To be honest, I was a bit anxious to play this game some 32 years later. But after booting into the game, my fear vanished pronto. The gameplay, the graphics, and the music were as good as I remembered them. Something else vanished as well: my player skills!
