User Review Information

Well done, but too much backtracking

Reviewed By: Ace of Spades on 29 Aug 2019

I played through some of the hack and I have to give props for it. Clearly a lot of work went into this ROM hack and I must say I am more than impressed. I understand many people find it difficult and I can definitely see why they say that but on a personal note, I don’t mind hacks that add a bit of difficulty to a game.

However, I must say that amount of backtracking in the first dungeon alone is far too frequent. I mean, the player finds the Guardhouse, finds a key or two and is required to go all the way to the other side of the dungeon, finds a key item, must backtrack past the beginning, find another key (item) and go back to the other side of the Guardhouse. It becomes tiring and almost a bit irritating to just have to frequently go back and forth before actually completing anything; especially when the player doesn’t have the sword right away, forcing them to spend even more time dodging enemies.

This was all for the 1.23 version of the original Parallel Worlds. I understand there is a remodel of it which I have played and the backtracking is greatly reduced. This hack is meant to be more difficult than the remodel which is understandable but the backtracking is too much and should be lowered. Otherwise I fear not many people would want to finish it

Besides this, I wish you two, Euclid and SePH, the best of luck and hope you keep up the good work!
