Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow - Playable Old Axe Armor Hack

Hack of Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow


This is a very simple hack for Dawn of Sorrow that replaces Alucard in Julius Mode with Old Axe Armor from Portrait of Ruin (though Alucard is the one inside the armor ^^;). The Axe Armor has every move it had in PoR, minus the Martial Arts, but he has two new moves he can perform to compensate

Julius Mode is unlocked from the start in this hack so that you don’t have to worry about going through Soma Mode, and now you meet with Old Axe Armor in the top-left room near the starting room on the map

Now in version 1.2 you’ll be able to choose between three color palettes for the Old Axe Armor to your liking; Rondo of Blood (RoB), Portrait of Ruin (PoR), and Harmony of Despair (HoDes)

Hopefully you enjoy playing as Old Axe Armor!
