Mother 2 Deluxe

Hack of EarthBound

Description:

The new 2.0 version of Mother 2 Deluxe is a VAST improvement over the old 1.31 version that was here in romhacking.net.

A very small selection of major new features:

  • Massively rebalanced to make the game more fair and less arbitrarily difficult.
  • Jeff has his own Tools menu of his special items to free up his inventory.
  • Many new battle animations for PSI and Jeff’s Tools.
  • New final dungeon to tie Mother 2 and 3 together.
  • Your Places (formerly known as Your Sanctuaries) that can be skipped until later (Lilliput Steps, Milky Well, Magnet Hill, and Pink Cloud) now auto upgrade their enemies and bosses over time to stay at your power level all game.
  • Enemies completely reprogrammed to be very intelligent. Bosses and stronger enemies can detect status ailments on them and heal themselves.
  • New PSI and PSI arrangements and costs.
  • New battle sprites and enemy overworld sprites.

SO MUCH MORE!

Hack requires EBP (Earthbound Patcher) in order to patch.

Does not play nice with Snes9x and Zsnes (why are you using Zsnes!?) Recommended emulators are BSNES and Mesen-S.

Complete joke of a romhack

Reviewed By: liquicl on 01 Apr 2022

Wow where to start with this pile of cancer…

The VERY beginning enemies can easily kill you over and over and over simply due to bad RNG (you’ll miss attacks very frequently and the starting dog mob can easily 2 shot you).

The difficulty flow is absurdly stupid, picture dark souls style beating your face in but with turn based RPG mechanics.

You shouldn’t have to visit an Inn after every. single. encounter. This is just poor RPG pacing.

Overall an absolute insult to the original, easy deletion.

Version 2.0 Recommended - No
