Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest - Moody

Hack of Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest

Description:

A cosmetic enhancement patch for giving a “moody” look to Castlevania 2 Simon’s Quest (U).

In more detail:

  • Emphasizes the mood of the scenes.
  • Makes the scenes more convincing regarding the way in which a light source at different times of the day would change colors in each scene.
  • Enhances perspective by separating planes by hue and by making more analog the colors considered belonging in the same distance plane -specially in backgrounds- while shifting hues and contrasting values in the the closer planes in order to give them a bit of air in between them.

Personal Aesthetic Bias

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 08 Nov 2017

I love palette swaps, but I really wasn’t into this one. Outside, it seems like it’s going for a more realistic look, sticking mostly to greens and browns, but Simon’s Quest’s weirdness is part of what I liked about it, whether it be the strangely colorful palettes, the blank space rooms that you can explore in certain mansions, or even the way the bosses just kinda show up with no fanfare, almost like they’re just some weird, super-durable one-off enemy; it makes a nice, strange experience. As for the mansions in this hack, they were a bit hit or miss for me. The first mansion is a lovely blood red, but it clashes with all of the green in most of the rest of the palette. On the other hand, the third mansion is a gorgeous deep red with a lighter blue for its background. All in all, it could be my personal color preference that makes me prefer the original over this hack; give it a try, if it sounds like your sort of thing, or even if you just want to play the game with a new coat of paint.
