In Castlevania IV, Medusa has a stone "gaze", this weird orb thing she can shoot out that stones you temporarily if you don't dodge it. She didn't have anything like that, at all, in CV1, probably because the system just didn't have it available that early in the life of the NES.

Whatever the case, I decided not to actually have the funky stone orb, but I did give her back her fitting power.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
