I really appreciate the Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest box-art.
Mostly, I just like that the whip forms a “2”. It’s simple. It’s clever. It’s subtle.
It’s also a fun inversion of the original Castlevania’s boxart. Structurally, they’re very similar: grey background, Dracula in the top left, his castle in the top right. Except, in the first game, Simon’s back was to the viewer; now he’s facing forward.
It’s a simple, dumb thing to appreciate. But it makes me happy.
