Wouldn't Play Without This

Reviewed By: Shade Aurion on 04 Dec 2018

I grew up with Castlevania II - Simon’s Quest so I’m very used to the harsh and unforgiving nature of the game and what this hack does is take something frustrating and make it a non-issue. The reduction in penalty really makes it feel like less of a hassle and keeps players playing rather then getting salty and quitting and that is no small thing.

I used this hack along with Annoyance Fixes and Improved Controls in my playthrough here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUTCRuJqHYc&list=PLVFlHPy0Pa9ti3NATk3akAX3uHkQ66QWv
