Castlevania: Circle of the Moon box art, Konami, Game Boy Advance, Wii U

Unlock Magician Mode

Complete the game, then start a new game and enter ‘FIREBALL’ as a name. If done correctly the word ‘Magician’ will appear on the Option screen. In this mode all trading cards will be available immediately under the DSS option.

Unlock Fighter Mode

Complete the game in Magician Mode and start a new game with ‘GRADIUS’ as a name. The word ‘Fighter’ will appear on the Option screen if done correctly. Nathan is stronger and able to take more damage in this mode. Trading cards are not available in this mode.

Unlock Shooter Mode

Complete the game in Fighter Mode and start a new game with ‘CROSSBOW’ as a name. The word ‘Shooter’ will appear on the Option screen if done correctly. Nathan will have a greater number of hearts, extra sub-weapon damage and can use the Homing Dagger sub-weapon in this mode.

Unlock Thief Mode

Complete the game in Shooter Mode and start a new game with ‘DAGGER’  as a name. The word ‘Thief’ will appear on the Option screen if done correctly. Nathan’s stats will be lower to begin with in this mode and will not increase as much when you gain a level apart from the ‘LCK’ (Luck) stat which will start at 1600 and will increase by an additional 160 LCK at each level.

Spinning Attack

While using the whip hold down the attack button to make it spin round in a circle. This will prevent small enemies from hitting you but you cannot move while performing this attack.

Defeat Dragon Zombies

An easy way to defeat the Dragon Zombies is to jump up to the platform by the door where you entered whenever you get hurt and activate the Jupiter + Mandragora DSS combo to heal yourself. Just watch out for the occasional fireball which may come your way.

Defeat Death

To defeat Death easily activate the Jupiter + Manticore DSS combo. This prevents his sickles from hitting you.
