Golden Axe III isn’t very good, but this hack transforms it into a somewhat decent experience overall. Higher player attack strength, coupled with removed enemy blocking, makes this game much easier than how it was before, allowing players to actually get a chance to make significant progress for once. That alone is worth using this hack, if only to remove some of the original game’s annoyances.

I would like to see this hack integrate the Quality of Life Improvements of the Gryphon Hack as well, just so that people can have the complete Golden Axe III experience. Other than that, this hack is well worth using for those looking to play Golden Axe III in modern day.
