Hack of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Description:

This is a hack of Castlevania SOTN which rebalances the difficulty. This includes adjusting enemy strength, enemy HP, weapon stat adjustment, removing more powerful (cheap) weapons, and adjusting spell attributes. All the changes are mentioned in the included Read Me.

Patch is in PPF format, BIN/CUE format for the game image seems to work fine.

Amazing

Reviewed By: necrodrakath on 08 Nov 2017

I’m experiencing this game in a new exciting way now I can finally enjoy and have some challenge in the bosses and enemies without having to handicap myself.

Playing this you will discover a lot of strategies and details of the game like the weakness system that was underused before and the spells will be of great help.

The only complaint I have is that I think I found a bug, I’m playing with the only lvl 1 path and everything has being good and balanced so far but the early version of the mist power (Colosseum one) doesn’t stay for long enough to pass the grates.
