Ultimate Superman

Hack of Superman

Description:

Ultimate Superman is a balance patch designed for the 1992 Superman game by Sunsoft.

The primary goal of this patch is to bring down the game’s frustrating difficulty in various ways.

From lowering amount of damage taking from enemies, giving Superman more control over his powers and adding more health powerups throughout the game’s five stages, Ultimate Superman aims to truly make you feel as if you are The Man of Steel!

v2 Changes:

  • Two new difficulty options!

At the title screen, Hold B or C and press start respectively. Holding B Activates Hard Mode where damage Superman recieves is doubled. Holding C Activates Extreme Mode where damage Superman recieves is tripled! Pressing start will default to normal difficulty featured in Ultimate Superman v1.

  • SRAM Function

How It Works: Saving: Game saves after every level.

Loading: At the title screen, Hold A and press start.

Game Saves: Current Level Current Difficulty

v1 Changes:

  • Tweaked the amount of damage Superman takes when coming in contact with enemies, projectiles and hazards
  • Superman’s punch recharges much faster
  • Superman’s heat vision is always fully charged
  • Start with 5 continues
  • Superman jumps higher when pressing Up+Jump
  • Silver S logos now operate as health pickups

Patching details can be found in the readme file.

Finally! But needs better balance...

Reviewed By: vonseux on 25 Jun 2020

Superman for Genesis is an amazing game hindered by crushing difficulty, so most people can’t even enjoy the amazing soundtrack it holds fully. This hack is much anticipated, however the team made Superman TOO powerful, breaking the fun on the gameplay.

A few suggestions for a possible revision:

  • Tweaked the amount of damage

It’s now virtually impossible to lose a life, breaking the game. Allow more damage, or remove the Silver S logos health picks.

  • Superman’s punch recharges much faster

this is a nice idea, however recharge should not be instant, allowing to spam boss fights. It´s also game breaking as removes any strategy.

  • Superman jumps higher when pressing Up+Jump

this is not needed, and looks glitchy

The hack still useful if you just want to see the game go by without any actual challange, but for this you may just watch a longplay video.
