Hack of Super Castlevania IV

Description:

Thanks to RedGuy’s work on his Super Castlevania IV Editor, SC4 now has most of its assets in an uncompressed format, making it possible to do all sort of hacking feats on both SCIV and Akumajou Dracula.

This hack focuses on restoring most of the censored content from the USA release of Super Castlevania IV:

  • All of the crosses in both backgrounds, coffins, gravestones, etc have been restored.
  • The green goop has been ditched in favor of the blood in level 8-1-1 and 8-1-2.
  • The Stained Glass from the Continue screen has been restored to its Japanese counterpart sprites.
  • The Font has been modified to match that of the Japanese release as well.
  • The Stage Select screen has been completely reworked and translated.
  • Blood Drop from the Japanese Title Screen.
  • Chain Whip SFX from the Japanese version.
  • FastROM hack to reduce slowdowns, by Vítor Vilela
