Super CV IV - CV1 Font + HUD + Icons

Hack of Super Castlevania IV

Description:

This is a hack of Super Castlevania IV. It changes the HUD and font to be similar to the first Castlevania game. Simons sprite was also recolored to be a simpler color palette like the one in the first game. Weapon and item sprites were also ported and in some cases re-shaded. There is also a special edit to the final form of Dracula also.

This is a more in depth hack that changes more than what was changed in the Super CV IV - CV 1 & 3 Font and HUD hack. These exist separately as it’s unsure if there will be a CV3 updated version. Also because some people may only want the HUD changed.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • No-Intro Name: Super Castlevania IV (USA)
  • (No-Intro version 20130701-030720)

Really neat

Reviewed By: Midas Magnezone on 30 Sep 2019

I have a soft spot for the subweapons icons in Castlevania NES. Something about the whip upgrade icon in the original game just doesn’t look right but I still like it. This hack makes Super Castlevania IV feel even more like a remake of the original NES game. The attention to detail is great, such as changing the menu text colours. Definitely great for replaying SCIV with a new coat of paint.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, but this patch doesn’t work correctly with the “Uncensored” hack by ShadowOne333, probably because the Uncensored hack requires a headerless ROM. Most other hacks should be fine, though.
