A great hack for people who tought the original was too easy

Reviewed By: Bregalad on 22 Apr 2017

I always loved Super Castlevania IV, it’s one of my favourite games ever. With much better control than other castlevania games, it’s the best pre-SOTN game of the series.

However it had a main flaw and it is that the game is too easy. At the 1st playthrough it’s not really the case, but once we figured out all the tricks and how to bypass them, playing this game becomes a little boring because of the lack of a challenge.

This hack, by making the game extremely difficult but still alike the original, is a bowl of fresh air and makes Super Castlevania IV enjoyable again. The levels are larger, and often has secrets and multiple paths, making them more interesting than ever. The enemies are more numerous and much more aggressive. Even the bosses are harder.

The first 2 levels are already very hard, but the third is… F****ing hard! Fortunately the passwords are still the same so you can access any level easily - and the latter ones look just impossible.

It’s only a shame there is some glitches hopefully they’ll be fixed in a later version !
