Hack of Chrono Trigger

Level Zero is a concept hack that was initially designed to circumvent the quirky nature of magic defense and other stats by removing the level-up entirely. After changing character and enemy stats, I mainly tried to learn to do more things with the ROM and improve the game’s balance by tweaking more and more components of the game, even adjusting/adding a few minor events.
While this is not explicitly a hardtype hack, it is probably is a bit on the difficult side, so if you’d like to play Chrono Trigger with a bit of an edge, Level Zero is worth a go.
This patch earlier was known as “Frozen in Time” but has changed substantially since then.

User Review Information
The game it possibly should have beenReviewed By: dudejo on 31 Oct 2012
In my opinion, EXP and Tech points were redundant since they both provided a linear increase in power.
With EXP gone, you not only get rid of this redundancy but you also create a character progression that’s unique to Chrono Trigger.
Also, since your stats are locked the whole game, you actually need to visit shops every now and then for better equipment or recovery items.
The downside is that New Game+ loses some of its meaning since you no longer have level 99 to strive for.
