Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun (悪魔城すぺしゃる ぼくドラキュラくん? lit. "Demon Castle Special: I'm Kid Dracula") is an action/adventure platformer game by Konami originally released for the Family Computer system on October 19, 1990, in Japan. An arranged version was later released worldwide on the Game Boy handheld system under the title of Kid Dracula. It was eventually made available on mobile phones via digital download.

The game is a parody spin-off of the Castlevania series, starring Count Dracula's son, Kid Dracula.

The game was released for the first time in English as part of the Castlevania Anniversary Collection on May 16, 2019 under the name of Kid Dracula.

Plot

The story of Boku Dracula-kun is relatively simple: the self-proclaimed Demon King, Kid Dracula, has awoken from a long sleep, only to discover that the dinosaur Galamoth has challenged him. Swiping his father's cape, it's then up to Kid Dracula himself to set out on a journey to destroy the monster and retake his throne.

Although not related to the actual Castlevania storyline, Galamoth, the villain of the Boku Dracula-kun series, is responsible for starting the events seen in Castlevania Judgment; this somehow created a connection. According to the Boku Dracula-kun series, Kid Dracula is 10,009 years old. In Castlevania Judgment, Galamoth sends the Time Reaper from 10,000 years in the future.

Trivia

  • The background music for the first stage of the game is a whimsical remix of "Beginning", from Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse.
  • As it is a parody game, most tropes related to vampires are lampooned or outright disregarded in the game; for instance, one stage involves being in open daylight, with clearly no negative effects for Kid Dracula.
