Hack of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Description:

IPS patching required.

This is a hack of Aria of Sorrow that changes most part of the map, and the aim is to give completely new experience to players.

Changes

  • Most of the map redone. Some new puzzles added. Added a new area like Nest of Evil in PoR.
  • Some of the weapons, armors and accessories are changed. Example: Valmanway and Excarlibur.
  • Changed some items. Example: Mina’s Charm, work like magic ticket and can be used without consuming it. Talk to Mina to aquire this.
  • Most of souls are slightly easier to aquire.
  • Bug fixes to original game, including shop giltch and death warp.
  • Soma’s status are chaged. Julius is greatly strengthened. The aim is that Julius is super and can be used very easily.

Not all changes are listed here, so that players can find out new things themselves.

For some frequently asked questions, view the readme file.

Update

  • v1.10: Changed some parts of the game which has confused a lot of players (and is also not satisfied by the author). The main game play remains the same so that players who has already cleared this hack are not necessarily to play this again. This will be the last update for this hack if no major bugs were found.
    • A key item can no longer be sold, which will prevent the player from getting good ending.
    • Added a tip telling player what is happening when opening the gate in the Underground Reservior.
    • Changed the gfx of sealed boss doors so that players can tell apart them from normal ones.
    • Remade a room in the Inner Quarters so that player may not be confused by the fake “exits”.
    • Changed the text of Hint Card 2 & 3 to make them more clear to players.
    • Some other minor changes.
  • v1.01: Fixed a bug that Tsuchinoko soul does not work correctly.

A marvelous hack of Castlevania AoS!!

Reviewed By: ikusatatsu_ushiromiya on 10 Apr 2019

This is the most surprising and interesting hack of Castlevania AoS I have played!

The whole castle are remodeled, which gives me a brand new experience. I had to explore many places to find the route. The map design is very ingenious. Many places have original puzzles such as three boxs, the up and down of water level, the stopping time in the tower. These new puzzles also wonderful parts of this hack. Some weapons, armors and accessories are changed and have new functions. The most startling item is Mina’s Charm! Which can let me return to Mina everywhere and anytime.
