Castlevania - Legends: Speed Hack

Hack of Castlevania Legends

Description:

One of the things that put me off about the Gameboy CV games was the slow walking speed of the protagonists. While I understand this was due to the old school Gameboys blurring very badly when ANYTHING moved, in the age of emulation it’s just a pain in the ass.

Therefore, I hacked Castlevania Legends so Sonia moves faster than usual.

In v1.0, Sonia moved as quickly as when Burning Mode was activated. Due to complaints, I slowed her down a little (By using a different method to hack her speed), so Burning Mode still provides a speed bonus along with its other benefits.

There is also a patch for the japanese version of the game as of v1.1. The most notable difference is that it uses SRAM instead of passwords.

Version 1.1. I’ve always loved Castlevania and the original Gameboy games felt like I was playing in slow motion the entire game. Now with this hack you can have Sonia move at a pace that doesn’t crawl. This does make the game easier though as jumps that were originally a super challenge are now easier to get across. Finally feels more like the NES Castlevania games.
