It’s not as epilepsy-inducing anymore and better for the eyes :)

Works

Reviewed By: BlazeHeatnix on 20 Feb 2015

It’s a great hack for those with epilepsy or those that think the flash effect is just unpleasant.

However this is the exact same thing Nintendo did with the GBA, GC and Virtual Console re-releases. Though I guess if you truly wanted to play the original NES release with that fix, this is your only option and for that, it works.
