1UP! (Apr 18, 2008)
Cet humour était indispensable en fin de compte, car sans lui Kid Dracula serait un jeu de plates-formes un peu trop quelconque, même pour le fan de Konami, qui, à moins de porter des oeillères, ne peut ignorer ce que Capcom et Nintendo arrivent à faire dans un genre similaire en 1990 et avant. Il y a de bonnes idées que Konami réutilisera plus tard dans d'autres jeux, sur Super Famicom notamment, comme Tiny Toon Adventure et The Legend of the Mystical Ninja, mais ses inégalités sont malgré tout trop fortes pour en faire naturellement un classique. Cela n'empêche pas de savourer ses éléments créatifs et de rire ou sourire de ses gags farfelus très Konami, très japonais.

Overall, aside from a couple gripes, Kid Dracula is a great game for any platformer or Castlevania fan. I would really love to see this ported to the 3DS or Wii U’s virtual console so more people can experience it. Very solid, and I am happy to start my Famicom journey with this.

I love this game. I’ll never know why this was cancelled but frickin Bayou Billy and Stinger came over. I can at least understand publishing Top Gun, as much as I hated that game. Quality titles like Boku Dracula Kun should have come over. This is a fantastic platformer and an excellent addition to any NES library.

Retrogaming History (Aug 31, 2009)
Alla fine l'unico vero difetto di AS:BD è la relativa brevità e totale mancanza di stimoli a riprenderlo in mano una volta terminato, ma per il resto si tratta di un'altra dimostrazione dell'abilità di Konami nonché di un titolo genuinamente spassoso e divertente.

Thunderbolt Games (Oct 19, 2007)
As its title states, this game really is something "special". Characteristically faultless platforming combined with a charmingly, innocent ambience that blissfully pokes fun at everything that the proper Castlevania games take too seriously - Kid Dracula sure knows how to have a good time! Before Simon Belmont royally screwed Alucard's father (or before Leon Belmont did, if you want to be pedantic), there was already a party going on in Dracula's Demon Castle - whether or not you're a follower of all things Castlevania, you should definitely stop by to say hi and check out this vibrant take on one of the greatest franchises ever.

Given how difficult this game will actually be to FIND, I can't actually recommend you go out and spend like $50 on it. But if you happen to stumble upon it, then it's a worthy action addition to the Konami library.

Nesta aventura, Drácula ainda é uma criança. Uma estrela do mal caiu na Lua, trazendo terríveis monstros que ameaçam dominar seu mundo. Com a sua ajuda, o jovem menino-morcego deverá derrotá-los para manter seus domínios e, quem sabe, tornar-se muito importante no futuro. Afinal, você já deve ter ouvido falar dele, não?
