    Removed Alternate Title. The title is already read "Captain Rainbow", even if its romanized its still officially read as "Captain Rainbow". Besides reading romanizations is kinda weeaboo cringe level.

Double Dragon 3 Deluxe

Hack of Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones

Description:

Double Dragon 3 Deluxe is a hack that not only adds Jimmy as a playable character, it rebalances the game in difficulty. Health is now 255 and weapon usage is now 99. Enemies are weaker and characters are slightly stronger.

This hack uses Double Dragon 3 (Easy) hack by tog as a base, the program GGGuy (Game Genie Guy) by Kyle to add in Jimmy, and the hex editing program HxD to edit health and weapon values and also fix Jimmy’s name.

This hack did not use the Double Dragon III - Difficulty Fix hack in any form.

Double Dragon 3

Reviewed By: magnitude10 on 24 Feb 2017

Great effort, I wanted to say first and foremost that I played through the hack last night and enjoyed it.

Bought Double Dragon 3 with my own money as a kid coming off of Double Dragon 2 and hated it so much because the difficulty was stacked so highly against you.

Usually when I played it I barely made it past the first stage and the furthest I ever got was the stage after you get Chin, by that point because the game didn’t replenish your life you’re usually so beat down that you might as well just turn the system off without even attempting the stage.

So it was quite nice to actually see the game through to the end, however the game now has the opposite problem that it originally had. There is ZERO challenge. I plowed through the entire thing with no effort. I was hoping for a difficulty akin to Double Dragon 1 or 2 when I downloaded this.

I just think you went overboard stacking the game in the player’s advantage. I think in addition to making the attacks stronger and the enemies weaker that boosting all the life stats to 255 as well was severe overkill. Having all the weapons have 99 uses just led to me cheesing the entire game with nunchucks with zero consequence. And with the extra brother in addition to the 3 other characters, you end up with four gigantic 255 life bars and you’re pretty much invincible. Unless you fall down a pitfall there is NO challenge. I think you added unlimited continues too, I do really appreciate that, keep that.

I appreciate all the work you did fixing the Bimmy thing, adding the extra brother, and just overall making the game better and more accessible in general. It IS still an improvement, don’t get me wrong… Just needs tweaking to make it less of a cakewalk. That’s all. Thanks for hearing me out.
