Castlevania Simplified

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

The purpose of this hack was to make the original Castlevania much easier for gamers that find games that aren’t too incredibly tough more enjoyable.

Key changes:

  • Players begin the game with 5 lives.
  • Small Hearts are now worth 2 hearts.
  • Daggers have been completely eliminated. They have been changed to either Crosses, Holy Waters, or Axes.
  • The vast majority of bottomless pits are eliminated. There are still some left in to provide at least some challenge.
  • Simon takes 1 HP of damage from most attacks and enemies.
  • More porkchops and other items are hidden throughout the levels. There are even 3 items in Dracula’s room!
  • Porkchops now heal Simon’s entire health bar.
  • The corridor leading to Death no longer have Axe-Men and have been replaced by simple Skeletons.

This hack was created with the use of the Stake Level Editor.

Castlevania Noob Version

Reviewed By: onepiecefan2007 on 17 Aug 2018

There isn’t much to say about this hack ROM, it’s simply a simplified version of CV, in this hack you can notice that there are a few holes in the floor, there are rarer weapons, a lot of useless weapons have been deleted, and the life bar decrease more slowly than the original game. This hack is good for those who want play a simplified version of CV, but in my opinion with a minor difficulty the fun decreased a lot. My vote for this hack is for the simplicity 5/5, and for the hack in general 3/5.
