Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin - Improved version

Hack of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Description:

The castle in Portrait of Ruin feels like it was used just as a main HUB, as most of the enemies were scattered into the paintings.

This hack has the purpose of improving the game by relocating most of the enemies around the main castle, making it more challenging and alive, adding more variety and keeping gameplay interesting.

As some of the music is also not the best of the DSvanias, some of the tracks were rearranged to different locations, were the mood would seems more appropriate.

Lastly, new save and exit points were added, inside the paintings and around the castle, to make it a more user-friendly game, using the most of the layout of the maps.

Besides that, is the same story and game that we all love.

Obs: The patch is in BPS format.

Unfinishable Hack.

Reviewed By: StarWyvern on 16 Jul 2020

Anyone who loves POR should play this just for the aesthetics of the changes made here. I enjoyed having more enemies in more challenging places. I also enjoyed the fact that I had to rethink my route through the game in order to progress from New Game to end. Ultimately, in the end however, I ended up disappointed when I defeated the Dracula and Death team up, only to find that True Dracula did not spawn, locking me in Dracula’s boss chamber indefinitely. This makes this hack unfinishable without use of unlock mode cheats. I actually made a few modifications for this hack changing some of the more ridiculous bosses into more tolerable enemies, and rereleased it over at castlevaniamodding.net. But I have not been able to undo the horrendousness of the unfinishable final boss fight.
