Hydlide Easy Mode

Reviewed By: XtremePrime on 26 Jun 2022

This romhack enables people who find Hydlide tedious or at times difficult due to the way combat works to finally be able to play through it in a swift 30 minutes (if you know what you need to do)!

The improved XP rates makes it so that grinding doesn’t take a long time, but it’s still a process you as a player need to undertake before going in dungeons for items like the pot. The regenerating health increase makes it so you don’t have to wait extended periods of time just for your health to top out before attempting again. Definitely an improvement!!

The only note I have to mention is that due to said health regeneration increase, you will recover health very quickly at max level inside during the Varalys encounter, making it incredibly easy to just attacking him a bit in defend mode, then run off, wait a second to regenerate HP and then fight him again. It’s up to each if this is a good thing or not, due to the nature of the original fight relying on the Medicine potion and the RNG from the nearby enemies.

All in all, I definitely recommend this romhack if you want to have a quick fun run of Hydlide!
