COUNT DRACULA CHALLENGES YOU... ARE YOU UP TO THE TASK?
Welcome to HooperVania, a free and non-profit French fan-game celebrating Castlevania, the French videomaker Hooper, his community and video games as a whole! Navigate through various stages using the famous Vampire Killer to defeat numerous enemies, large bosses and ultimately vanquish Dracula himself!
A team of around 15+ people worked hard to make this a reality, with several level-designers, artists and lots of playtest. I hope you will enjoy the game as much as we enjoyed making it!
Hooper regularly streams video games playthrough, with a special tradition: each December 31st, to celebrate the new year, he plays a new episode of Castlevania. Since he started in 2009, he has already kicked Dracula's ass a dozen of times!
This time, however, Dracula has had enough. Using his mystical powers, he fusions his world with Hooper's, and challenges him to a fair one-on-one fight.
Now, it is your time to shine! Play as Hooper wielding the whip of the Belmont Family to thwart Dracula's plans once and for all!
HooperVania's gameplay is pretty close to those of the original Castlevania series. Move, jump, crawl, use the whip and other secondary weapons to vanquish your foes!
