Lufia & the Fortress of Doom Restored

Hack of Lufia & the Fortress of Doom

Description:

Based off of D’s Lufia: Decensored, this mod fixes continuity issues the first game has compared to later entries, in some cases using retranslated terms, while still keeping true to the officially established English Lufia lore.

There are also other tweaks to improve gameplay experience.

  • Incorporates JCE3000GT’s Fast Walker patch. Speeds up walking on the world map and in dungeons, as well as vehicle movement. (Modified to restore Sweet and Foul Waters’ expiration notices)
  • The final boss’ battle script has been restored to its original.
  • Lufia and Selan can now use Jerin’s Zircon equipment, thanks to Lufia 1 Multi-Editor.
  • Item descriptions restored, expanding the ROM to 1.50 MB.
  • The beeping noise for spoken dialogue is now retained when the message speed is set to “Fast”.
  • Restored crosses on church walls.
  • Audio defaults to Stereo when starting a new game.

Does What it Says!

Reviewed By: magictrufflez on 29 Dec 2016

I’ve played and beaten all the Lufia entries before, but it had been a particularly long time since I’d played through Lufia I. I’d played a number of Vivify’s translation cleanups before, so I decided to give this a whirl since it not only cleaned up the text but added a few quality of life improvements as well.

The cleanups are great from start to finish, and the restored functions do add greatly to the game!

The only gripes I have are that the final boss, even with its restored moveset, is still a total push-over, and status effects are still way too OP throughout this game. However, these definitely do not take away from the good this patch does–play it!
