A lot of potential, but not fully enjoyable

Reviewed By: Aceearly1993 on 27 Aug 2021

Honestly I’d admit that this hack has a lot of potential to top every other pre-existed DS Castlevania hacks in creatively and quality, but the major problem was it crashes quite often when I want to pause and consume potions in several areas consists of very large rooms (e.g.. Nest of Evil floor 5 room 3/room 4). This really ruins the whole experience with the hack (the crash happens on DSTT flash cart in NDS mode through 3DS’ Twilight Menu ++ , and I’m not sure if it also happen on emulators. Still, the optimization needs work to get rid of the crash on flashcarts anyway.) Also the difficulty curve contains some problems as the game suddenly became way too hard when first stepped in Great Stairway areas, enemies souped on you at some large rooms of that area, and it’s fairly easy to fall onto spikes which deals fixed percentage damages, which is, a complex feeling onto me which I can describe it best as “pain”.

Hope the crash issue gets fixed in the next updates, I’m counting on you.
