    And I forget to fix the version number which is actually 1.8

    The target ROM info was wrong. Patch is meant to be applied to Phantasy Star II (USA, Europe), NOT the (Rev A). How do I know that? Wayback machine, they used to distribute the patched rom. It matches MD5 checksum when NOT using the (Rev A) rom.

Hydlide

PC

Game Description:

My initial preconceptions about Hydlide was that the game stank. Upon trying this, they were reaffirmed.

Then I read the docs.

I proceeded to have a decently fun amount of time with a fairly aimless Ys-like game, once I figured out I had to change my character to “Attack” mode for him to actually, you know, hurt the enemies. Then I hit level 3, and half the enemies stopped giving me experience, while the other half continued to kill me in one hit. And I stopped, nearly frustrated back to my initially reserved opinion.

So! In Hydlide, you’re this guy Jim, and you run around killing things, looking for three fairies, three jewels, and a big bad demon guy to kill. Hey, it’s not particularly deep, but it’s an old game, so it’s excused. The total lack of any aim is a real problem, though; I constantly found myself going one screen too far in what was apparently the wrong direction, and getting reamed by monsters. Your mileage may vary.

Translation Description:

Once again, D-Boy manages to give a game better than it probably deserves. His work on the game is impeccable, although whether or not it’s worth playing the game to -see- his work is another story.

Addendum: This package is in the form of a patch for the installer program to allow you to install the game on English systems, and the general NINJA 2.0 format patch for the translation.
