Makes a huge difference!

Reviewed By: ArugulaZ on 30 Aug 2017

I understand why Blizzard and Mass Media adjusted the color palette in the Game Boy Advance version of Blackthorne, but it detracts from the dark atmosphere of the game and drowns out some of its detail in a flood of saturated, unnatural hues. This hack makes the handheld version of Blackthorne look much more like its Super NES counterpart, and it’s a welcome change. Nobody wanted to play this game with preschool colors anyway.
