Castlevania: Improved Controls

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

This hack for Castlevania modernizes the control scheme to make it more like Symphony of the Night and Mega Man, allowing the player more control while in the air.

Complete list of changes:

  • Enables the player to control their x-velocity in mid-air while jumping (including while jump-attacking).
  • (optional) When releasing the jump button, one immediately starts falling again; this allows the player to make smaller hops if desired.
  • After being knocked back, the player regains control after a split second and can angle their fall.
  • When walking off an edge, the player retains control instead of dropping straight down.
  • The player can jump off of stairs at any point in the climb.
  • (optional) The player can land on stairs.
  • (Optional) A bit of inertia while moving in the air.

Similar to the Akumajou Densetsu (Castlevania 3) hack here and Castlevania 2 hack found here.

Use Lunar IPS to apply the hack to your Castlevania 3 ROM file.

Version 1.1 changes:

  • Now compatible with Ultimate Castlevania and The Holy Relics. [i]Please ensure that you use the correct patch from the zip (other-hacks and the-holy-relics respectively) if you combine this hack with other hacks.[i]

Version 3.0 changes:

  • Now compatible with many other romhacks as well (see the folder for compatibility with other hacks)
  • Stair landing
  • Optional inertia for “weightier” jumps.
  • Individual changes can be selected.

Version 3.1 changes:

  • Changed folder layout of zip file to be less confusing. Previously, many would-be-players were incorrectly applying the patch for the vanilla version of the game onto hacked versions of the game.

Gratest update

Reviewed By: gordon81 on 30 Jun 2022

This patch bring back Castlevania Rondo of Blood (PCEngine) control style. More accurate, more addictive.

It’s all you need when you has played couple years to Castlevania I & III.

Castlevania classic control it´s based in strategy… I could jump with enemy and get fare hearts?… the answer it’s easy, Not.

With new control patch you will play to Castlevania I & III as if they were new games.

Fresh fresh fresh play game.

I just want the same patch for Castlevania II… (camilas grave-cemetery jump)

Thanks for these works.
