Kick Master - Magic User's Mode

Hack of Kick Master


“Magic User’s Mode” gives you new version of an old well-known game, where Magic became more helpful and Kicks can be mastered like a true Martial Art… The life is one and precious - you have to play carefully and protect it with all the magic in your arsenal!

  • Almost all kicks are now fully CONTROLLABLE - they can be stopped by releasing the B-button! Same goes for the Slide Kick (the first one to get), which became the proper “escape move” now;
  • Order of gaining new kicks changed (see it in the “Demo of Kicks” section of the menu);
  • Knee Drop can now be used from the very beginning of game - but only on the descending part of jump’s trajectory;
  • Vertical Press Kick’s rate is limited - to prevent “spamming to death” bosses, approaching player from above;
  • Flying kick now requires you to release the “jump” button before use (to keep the ability to perform normal Kick with horizontal movements while jumping);
  • Blazing Flip is no longer depends on character’s “level” - and activates under a certain magic effect);
  • HP-bar was made a little shorter at the beginning;
  • Reduced the amount of EXP gained (from 10-30-50 to 10-20-30);
  • Number of lives is always at “0″ and cannot be raised - Hi-scores and “1UP” items give you 100 MP instead;
  • Max amount of magic to store is no longer defined by the “skill level” of your character and is always at 700;
  • Lowered MP cost of some magic spells (Twin, Force Shield, flying magic) - this may prove very helpful, especially when playing on difficulty round 3 or 4;
  • The “Debug Room” was added to the “Options” menu - to choose higher difficulties whenever you want!
  • The “Earthquake” was replaced with a NEW “Regeneration” spell! It gradually heals player in exchange for MP, but breaks when you move or take damage;
  • Decreased HP of the last boss to the *normal* amount and changed background music of the final fight - to make the finding of new tactics more enjoyable!
  • The “Autoloot” hack patch of “Kick Master” seems to work together with this one.

The hack that was needed

Reviewed By: Kuda on 28 May 2023

The mechanics fixed with magic are excellent, but the inclusion of the advanced difficulties are the best, the original is so easy that it makes the game not appreciated as it should be, but the level 4 difficulty fixes that problem. My only complaint is that it wasn’t necessary to remove a life bar, I think you’ll need it heading to the end of the game. The same goes for life removal, on difficulty 4 it becomes very tedious to have to replay the whole level. Fortunately that can be solved if you use the other Auto Tool hack, which evens out the balance making this hack a delight.

Version 3.2 Recommended - Yes
