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.

Great hack

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 04 Jun 2016

This is the way to play the game. By default Sonia Belmont moves really slow. This in combination with really long levels can make this game a bit of a bore. The walking speed seems to be about as fast as the other Game Boy speed hacks so it feels very natural. 1.0 made her default speed as fast as her burning mode so avoid that version if you find it online anywhere. Recommended.
