Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin - Improved version

Hack of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Description:

The castle in Portrait of Ruin feels like it was used just as a main HUB, as most of the enemies were scattered into the paintings.

This hack has the purpose of improving the game by relocating most of the enemies around the main castle, making it more challenging and alive, adding more variety and keeping gameplay interesting.

As some of the music is also not the best of the DSvanias, some of the tracks were rearranged to different locations, were the mood would seems more appropriate.

Lastly, new save and exit points were added, inside the paintings and around the castle, to make it a more user-friendly game, using the most of the layout of the maps.

Besides that, is the same story and game that we all love.

Obs: The patch is in BPS format.

Incredibly misguided

Reviewed By: gauchomax on 26 Dec 2017

By the power of poor taste, enemies are now seemingly randomly placed around the map without any regards for balance, thematic, or even consistency.

Arguably, the original game was also faulty of this same issue, but to a far lesser issue.

Only recommended for those who enjoys headaches and and brain tumors.
