Great for Newcomers

Reviewed By: TRIFORCE89 on 02 Dec 2014

Back in the original release you either had the Tips and Tricks guide or you drew out a map for yourself on the back of the manual as you went along.

In the absence of these, this hack makes for a great substitute. The healing speed improvement and the heart meter break down is even more of a welcome improvement.

It should be implemented on every hack, if possible.

My only complaint is that you’re limited to the PRG0 version of the game. If you want to play, say, the Collector’s Edition version with the rewritten text scroll… well, these aren’t compatible. The overworld is fine, but the game will crash once you’re in a dungeon.
