    For some unknown reason, the site claimed my account doesn’t exist, so I recreated it using my E-mail and wanted to check if a small edit works just as fine.

    Due to the fact that CajeASM hasn't been updated by me for many years, still has some odd bugs regarding instruction counter and due to the fact that (nowadays) better alternatives exist now, I've decided to delete this tool from this website. An alternative assembler I can recommend is bass, currently maintained by ARM9. To be found here: https://github.com/ARM9/bass

How interesting, all for the best!

Reviewed By: Algunar on 05 Aug 2022

Highly recommended, as it lets the players costumize options and difficulty at their best tastes (which also makes the previous hard hack of Golden Axe quite obsolete).

Furthermore, it is totally compatible with both Pyron and SCD colour hacks, so there is no point to ever play anymore Golden Axe Genesis without it.

I only wish the same would occur for Golden Axe II and III on the Genesis, even if these are quite mediocre compared to the original game (though the different colour hacks help them a lot to be way less crappy).

Additionally, the SFX change for the dragon attacks is a must have (I just hope this hack author will apply other SFX changes for all enemies voices as well in a potential future version 2 of this hack - I do have the females enemies beaten sound ported from the arcade version and converted to the SEGA Genesis, should you be interested in. It is unfortunately the only one I could get so far though.).

Many thanks to the author for this hack anyway, never play again Golden Axe Genesis port without it!
