Manall's FF1

Hack of Final Fantasy

Description:

This mod brings you a fresh and harder Final Fantasy with greater depth and tactics. Instead of just a raw difficulty increase, the mod aims to add interesting new choices in combat and expand class synergy. That said, even with some new items and spells care has been taken to ensure the game still “feels like FF”.

Along with the game you will find comprehensive charts and maps valuable to any new adventurer. Think of them as your guide like the original paper charts which came with the NES cartridge (except they’ll be correct!)

Some key overview features:

  • Greater challenge & rewards from battles
  • The Archer and Green Mage replace the original Black Belt and Red Mage
  • Thief role greatly improved, Fighter role brought down to mere mortal status
  • Graphics have received extensive improvements
  • Ports have been removed - the SHIP can now dock at any shore
  • Dirt Roads added near most towns, which help protect you from those random battles
  • New (and familiar) items, spells & monsters
  • Redesigned all useless items & spells

Combat Overview

  • New reactionary battle system - actors take their turns one at a time
  • Weapons can have powerful elemental, creature or status effect bonuses
  • Added Regeneration, a new status condition which recovers HP every turn
  • Poison is stronger, works on monsters, displays damage, visuals & sound
  • More monsters utilize spells, have more diverse & strategic spell scripts
  • Extended spell names to 5 letters, spells also display icons showing their element
  • Increased and added to the thematic presence of all eight magic elements

…and numerous bug fixes and quality of life improvements.
