Castlevania: The Adventure (GB): Improved Controls

Hack of Castlevania: The Adventure


This hack modernizes the control scheme of Castlevania: The Adventure to make it less frustrating to people used to tighter controls by giving the player more control while jumping.

Complete list of changes:

  • Belmont can now turn around and stop in mid-air.
  • Belmont regains control during knockback.
  • (optional) V-Cancel: when the jump button is released, Belmont immediately starts falling again; this allows the player to make smaller hops if desired.
  • (optional) Inertia: when adjusting velocity in mid-air, Belmont only accelerates slowly (rather than changing direction instantaneously).
  • Belmont blinks rapidly when struck, as in Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge.

Highly recommended to use in conjunction with the Speed and/or Whip hacks located here. You may also wish to apply this hack which removes the music from the game in exchange for a significant performance boost.

Similar to the Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge Improved Controls hack here.

You can use Lunar IPS or any other IPS patcher to apply the hack to your Castlevania: The Adventure ROM file.

Version 1.1 changes:

  • Knockback control is now regained only at the crest of the arc.
  • Blinking iframes.
  • (JP) Fixed inertia.
