Gradius - Arrangement Chronicle Death

Hack of Gradius

Description:

Here is a conversion patch which changes most of the original NES components to make it more like the original arcade version of Gradius. Graphics and sound have been altered as well as the use of having 4 options instead of the default 2. Another addition to this is an option menu at the start screen which allows you to reconfigure controls and also change the roll out of lives at the start of the game.

This new patch also adds the MMC5 Mapper to the ROM as well.

Fantastic!

This is a superb update to Gradius and is now the default version of the game I play. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve beaten it already! It’s hard to fathom why Konami limited the game to allowing just two options when this patch shows it’s perfectly capable of running with four.

The enemy placements are now much more faithful to the arcade version as are the graphics. The Vic Viper and end of level boss in particular are huge improvements over the somewhat weird looking originals. I definitely recommend this to any Gradius fans!
