    Changed author "kmikz" to the group names in the "Authors" field, since it was a translation made as a collaboration of lots of people, envolving three different brazilian romhacking groups. The other members will be added as credit entries. NOTE: I had to reupload the filename with another name, since I was getting the error "Invalid File Extension in URL". Probably due to the filename having lots of spaces and special characters. Renamed it to a simpler name (ZMC_PT-BR_RC1.7z).

Super Castlevania IV - Alter Quest

Hack of Super Castlevania IV

Description:

“Alter Quest” is a hack supposed to be the third quest after Simon has beaten the two from the original game. The focus was in game balance, and the hack includes changes to enemy stats (such as damage, hit points, size and, in some cases, behavior) and to the player’s weapon stats (including damage, range, speed and heart cost). Bosses in this hack were buffed and the player will need to use more strategy to beat them.

This hack tried to maintain the feel of the original Super Castlevania IV, so the overall map layout of the game didn’t receive many changes, but extra traps and enemies were added nevertheless. There are some changes of graphics also.

The player starts with only three lives, but extra lives can be found hidden in many of the levels. The hack starts somewhat easy but gets harder as the game progresses. Overall, it’s harder than the original.

If you like this hack, please feel free to share your experiences with it on the net. Playthroughs/walkthroughs/etc are most welcome! ;)

Have fun!

Version 1.1:

  • Increased the damage of the brandished whip so that it is more useful against lesser enemies;

  • Reduced a bit the difficulty of the last level;
  • Increased a hints section in the readme file to help the player with some hard parts of the hack.

Version 1.1b:

  • Decreased the stability of crumbling blocks (so they will crumble a bit faster now);

  • Increased the damage of the knife and cross subweapons from 20 to 24;
