Super Castlevania Hard mod

Hack of Super Castlevania IV

Description:

Welcome to the Super Castlevania 4 Hard Mod.

This is a complete level hack of the original game. Each level features new challenges and puzzles that will take time and out of the box thinking to overcome. The motivation was to make this game even more difficult and to have a fresh new challenge for people to sink their thumbs into.

This is geared towards advanced techniques and even making glitches into interesting mechanics.

The intended way to play this mod is to play it without save states. You start the game with 100 lives (99+your first life) and there are no continues. On game over you will be returned to 1-1. This change is to make checkpoints more valuable. The stage passwords are left in, so feel free to practice the later levels with them, but the real challenge is start to finish with the given life pool.

This mod is very hard and you will need to use the following to complete it:

Damage boosts

-Over pits -Through spikes/enemies

4 tile jumps

-Can be hit moving or still -Simon can put his toes far over the edge and not fall off

Ring glitch

-Easier than you think to learn -Press jump and whip over a ring, holding whip press down, right over the top -You can also just down whip over a ring but this is more difficult

Whip upgrade specifics

-Long whip spawns after collecting 8 hearts -Certain parts need long whip to progress, -It is possible to have it when it is needed

For experienced/master players this is beatable. For casual/novice players you should be able to make it through with save states and it will still be rewarding.

You need to use xdelta to patch a US version of the game. -used xdeltaUI to make the patch

Thanks to RedGuy for the editor.

Hope you like it, Drunken Draconian

A great challenge and to who I recommend this hack

Reviewed By: bogaabogaa on 12 Jul 2017

This hack is not made for every Castlevania player. You need to be a die hard Super Castlevania IV player to find Joie in this one. The difficulty level with precise jumping and advanced mechanics is introduced from the fist screen on. And the game does not stop using Candle cancellation as a “fun” mechanic to teas your ability to avoid it. The game does a poor job to teach some mechanics so look at it as a test of your knowledge and skill in the game. You may experience this not as much with savestate but to take the challenge will test you as a person in many ways or please the masochist in you. And if you dear to complete the 100 man challenge don’t wait to share your time on the speedrunningDOTcom. Guess there are only a view who will make it.

For the normal die hard Castlevania IV fan who managed to finish the game with savestating. This review is an illusion and is a trap Devisut by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progress!
