Hack of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

Description:

Circle of the Moon was a great Castlevania game, but the card system left something to be desired. Cards being dropped solely from enemies was less than desirable, since it meant that the main gimmick of the game was locked behind a game of dice. This mod makes the cards more accessible by placing them in specific locations around the world. Enemies who did drop cards now instead drop meat, as a nod to the classic style Castlevanias. Cards are generally placed in an ascending order of power; you won’t get big bone powers by searching the early areas.

Updated on 14/01/2020

Changelog:

  • Moved pointers to be compatible with COTM translation mods.
  • Gave Devil in the Observatory Shinning Armor as a rare drop, made Mirror Mail a common drop.

A massive improvement to a great game

Reviewed By: zergius on 03 Jun 2020

I’m really grateful to the creator of this patch, I loved this game but hated the grinding necessary to get all the cards. Having to instead explore for them is much better game design overall, and anyone who disliked the game should give it a second chance with this patch. The way the cards were hidden feels very natural as well, working well with the pacing. My only concern is where the Uranus card is, since I’ve completed the game and this was the only one I couldn’t find, even checking online to find where all the secret rooms are. Unless it’s far in the arena, the only place I haven’t completely explored, it seems to be too well hidden to find in this patch, and unfortunately I can’t check online for help where it’s hidden.

Also, I’d love to see a card randomizer made with this patch. It would be so great for replayability to have the cards that appear at every location be different each time people play it.
