Love the life bar from Dracula X (wish it was red!)

Reviewed By: timeisup on 05 Apr 2020

Love the life bar from Dracula X (wish it was red!), but don’t care much for Simon’s palette change. He doesn’t look shades of brown as in CV1, he’s just been muted and lightened a bit to a soft bitter red rather than the moodier look of the original game.

That is a problem IMO because Simon’s Quest is a moody game and the dark colors really add to the atmosphere. If we could separate these into two patches and especially get the life bar red, we’d really have something. As others have pointed out, not compatible with the Re-translation + Map patch which is a real deal breaker.

Version 2.1 Recommended - No
