Interesting excuse to play it again with a twist!

Reviewed By: estoybien on 23 Jun 2022

First, I didn’t find any issue whatsoever with this patch, works as intended. Something curious is that if you continue twice for example, the same amount will be discounted in the option menu, but not important.

Second, for purists you always will have the original game, but everything in this patch can be switched ON/OFF.

And third, thanks to the creator for the patch and the nice touch to include it also with Pyron’s color hack that is much closer to the arcade colors.

Now for the patch. While the game remains mostly intact, this lets you activate the arcade life glitch, use the normal or the new extra difficulty levels (where the AI is more aggressive and has more life), change the number of continues up to 9, and the normal arcade or the beginner magic spell usage.

Also, you can choose in the character selection the magics you want to use with any character. That will make the dwarf with the fire magics, nine continues and the low magic usage, a hard to beat powerhouse, or any other combinations you have in mind.
