A pretty much needed revision

Reviewed By: estoybien on 30 Jun 2020

As an Eternal Champions player since the game came out I always felt this one could have been better with a few changes, because:

  • Has overpowered characters
  • CPU abuses some movements
  • Contest difficulty is out of hand, high with no difficulty select
  • Has punishing continue system
  • Final boss formula way absurd, 5 forms to win, too long and a lottery to end

This hack addresses some good points and could deliver a better experience overall for newcomers, and I like the creator has included optional features. I still need to test deeper but I’ve got this on my mind right now:

  • If taunt doesn’t remove inner strength sometimes makes the CPU get looped trying to do so, so gameplay is a bit broken.
  • Going from default difficulty 7 to 2 was too much, now it’s too easy. Even the last boss can be beaten without seeing all the movements CPU usually do.
  • Movement and energy rebalance is harder to see.

I appreciate the effort, and I hope this game can be tweaked to optimum some day.
