Very great MOD, but needs some balancing

Reviewed By: Persephone on 19 May 2022

I like Castlevania, and Megaman series too. Adding Zero / Omega to Castlevania game is very good idea, I like it :D

However, there are some problem too. I don’t know if this intentional or not, but I feel if character’s attack range is way too short. I must very close to the enemy to land a hit. This is can be seen when you summon your partner. Look at him/her when you’re attacking an enemy. They CAN’T HIT the enemy you’re attacking at all. This makes me wonder : “Should I summon this guy to help me? Because it doesn’t matter if I summon him/her or fighting by myself, it makes no difference”

I don’t know if this MOD was supposed to be played in the same way like you did on Dawn of Sorrow, because on there, of course you are playing alone. But keep in mind if Portrait of Ruin is team-tag game. You can’t expect me to playing alone through the entire game without summoning partner at all.

About their moveset, why their moveset were different? Why Omega can’t do gravity jump like his partner did? This makes 90% of my playthrough were playing as ZX because her mobility are faster than Omega. And her lifesteal ability, woah, I love it, but I think that’s not enough to compensate their short attack range, especially if you’re playing hard mode (because the damage you receive are much higher than normal), or the worst, playing on ANDROID PHONE (the touchpad on android emulator is suck, you know) xD

Oh by the way, did I forgot to mention if there is a bug in this MOD? Once again, I don’t know if this was intentional or not, but the bell in Forest of Doom stage are invincible and CAN’T BE DESTROYED by their attacks. This makes me run all the way back to the other side of blocking wall. Because, well you know, the bell is supposed to open those barricades, but since it can’t be destroyed, you don’t have a choice.

Should I recommend this? I’m gonna say YES, but you need to increase their attack range so your partner could hit the enemy too. Otherwise, this MOD is become unfriendly to newcomers or non-veteran Castlevania players
