Hack of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow


Happy New Year.

This is a mod that aims to make a slightly more difficult vanilla experience. Readme for more info.

You start out as a greyed-out Soma with weaker leveling and a Handgun that deals Dark damage, and you notice that all enemies are tougher, some resistant to even Slash. Some have drastically increased damage. All of them drop their souls and items far easier than normal. Some yellow souls have multiple effects. Item placements are changed, soul pedestals are changed, there are new holes in the walls… It’s mayhem up here.

0.96 - “Making this update gave my monitor a scanline.”
