    Spelling correction of the word "Assohles", I fixed the typo and changed it to "Assholes". I also capitalized the words "French", and "English" in the description section. I got the following errors when I attempted to submit my corrections so I had to download, resize, and upload/change the images as well: 1.

Castlevania: Improved Controls

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

This hack for Castlevania modernizes the control scheme to make it more like Symphony of the Night and Mega Man, allowing the player more control while in the air.

Complete list of changes:

  • Enables the player to control their x-velocity in mid-air while jumping (including while jump-attacking).
  • When releasing the jump button, one immediately starts falling again; this allows the player to make smaller hops if desired.
  • After being knocked back, the player regains control after a split second and can angle their fall.
  • When walking off an edge, the player retains control instead of dropping straight down.
  • The player can jump off of stairs at any point in the climb (however, it is still impossible to land on stairs, so be careful jumping from long flights of stairs over pits)

Similar to the Akumajou Densetsu (Castlevania 3) hack here.

Use Lunar IPS to apply the hack to your Castlevania 3 ROM file.
