Hack of Little Nemo: The Dream Master

Description:

What this hack does:

This hack attempts to increase the usage of the WAND and to improve the overall gameplay of the beloved cult classic Little Nemo: The Dream Master. This is accomplished by giving the player the WAND weapon from the start, streamlining the action-platforming aspects of the gameplay, and reducing the cumbersome animal-riding parts of the game. Various re-balancing adjustments and improvements have been made to the game as well.

List of features, additions and changes:

1) WAND activation! Nemo can now use the WAND weapon from the beginning!

2) Brand new bosses at the end of level 5 & 6!

3) Nemo can now jump slightly higher. He can now reach up to 3 blocks vertically without the help of the frog suit!

4) Nemo now has a max of 4 hit points. This should reduce the difficulty of the game in the early stages.

5) All new levels! The amount of changes to the levels vary from level to level. From minor edits/polish to complete overhauls.

6) Adjustments to enemies hit points. Example, Airplanes and Balloons in level 3 can now be killed, etc.

7) Added more platforming challenges.

8) Added many challenges that require the usage of the WAND.

9) Added many secrets and bonus areas. These areas are not required to pass each level.

10) Streamlined many levels from the confusing and annoying key-fetching quests to more of an action-platformer.

11) Reduced and streamlined the animal-riding aspects of the game. Removed all instances where the need to constantly change animals are required.

12) The height of jumping out of water is now consistent and always at the highest.

13) Various graphical changes to give the levels a better look and feel according to the level’s theme.

14) Restored censored contents.

15) Swapped music between levels 5 & 7.

16) Bosses hit points have been increased to provide a more challenging boss battles experience.

17) The difficulty of level 8, Nightmare Land, has been ramped up to the max. Take advantage of the extra 1-ups!

18) Cap of 9 max lives is now removed. Nemo can now have a stock of more than 9 lives.

19) Various texts changes in attempt to modernize and to make the story fit with the early WAND activation.

20) Minor adjustments to enemy hit points.

21) Other various minor edits and adjustments.

22) Changed the “Morning Star” to the “Wonderful Wand”.

A Great New Twist!

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 18 Apr 2019

Not only does this start you out with the wand, but it uses it quite extensively. You’ll have to switch to the wand frequently to deal with the enemy onslaught, though it doesn’t really get to be obnoxious. That’s the key, really: a reasonable challenge, and this provides that throughout most of the game. The wand recoil puzzles in Nightmare Land were a bit difficult to figure out, but once you do, only one is really frustrating. I didn’t play the version with a boss at the end of Dream 6, but the one at the end of Dream 5 was an interesting new experience, because there are no boss fights in the original that allow the screen to scroll. There are also tons of neat little secrets to find that made the stages even more fun to explore. Definitely worth your time, if you’re any kind of Little Nemo fan!
