Castlevania - Legends: Speed Hack

Hack of Castlevania Legends

Description:

One of the things that put me off about the Gameboy CV games was the slow walking speed of the protagonists. While I understand this was due to the old school Gameboys blurring very badly when ANYTHING moved, in the age of emulation it’s just a pain in the ass.

Therefore, I hacked Castlevania Legends so Sonia moves faster than usual.

In v1.0, Sonia moved as quickly as when Burning Mode was activated. Due to complaints, I slowed her down a little (By using a different method to hack her speed), so Burning Mode still provides a speed bonus along with its other benefits.

There is also a patch for the japanese version of the game as of v1.1. The most notable difference is that it uses SRAM instead of passwords.

Do not play this game any other way

Reviewed By: Supergamerguy on 07 Mar 2021

I tried playing the vanilla version of this game and ragequit during level 3 (even with the use of save states). However, this hack allowed me to beat the game all the way through with less frustration. This hack turned the game from a literal slog to a mediocre platformer that I could find at least a little bit of enjoyment in. There’s no reason to ever play the vanilla experience again; if you are interested in this game, use this hack to make the game bearable.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
