    Amending my review due to misconstruing what the patch does, at first. I assumed one of the patches retained the armor graphics and changed the palette, which it actually doesn't do.

Final Fantasy IV - Ultima

Hack of Final Fantasy II

Description:

Final Fantasy IV - Ultima is a ‘deluxe’ version of Final Fantasy II for the SNES. FF2US always felt somewhat lacking and incomplete but full of potential. This hack rectifies that by adding a ton of additions to the base game while keeping the majority of the main story intact and the feel of FF2US the same.

Now includes the Novice Mode patch for a much more accessible experience with the Optional/Endgame content!

List of features, additions and changes:

  • 40 New Weapons! Including Magically Imbued Weapons!
  • 42 New Spells! Also revamped existing spells!
  • 26 New Bosses! Brand New Boss at Endgame that utilizes Randomized AI!
  • Party Swapping among 6 different members at Endgame!
  • Damage Limit increased to 14999! Can turn Enemy Encounters On or Off!
  • New Areas! New Side Quests! New Commands!!
  • New Enemy Graphics! New Events! New Endgame Scenarios!
  • New Equipment Screen with DETAILED buffs and stats!!
  • New attack/swing/spell animations!
  • New weapon graphics!! New sound effects!
  • New maps, new areas and new edits to overworld maps!
  • New events! New enemies!! Sprint with the Y button!!
  • New commands for characters. New Armors and Gears!
  • Revamped shops/equipment and balanced their progression.
  • Dark Knight Cecil now dual-wields and is 2-handed!!
  • Edge is now buffed offensively! Stealing is also buffed!
  • Rydia has also been buffed(slightly). It’s a surprise!
  • Cecil has been buffed as a tank.
  • Rosa can use more White Mage combative gears.
  • Kain has new offensive buffing spells at end-game and new commands as he rejoins the team.
  • Rare items and summons now drop much easier! This hack is designed as a ‘play-through’ without grinding.
  • Many enemies now have meaningful rare drops, and all end-game enemies now have rare ultimate drops!
  • New thrown weapons and back-row weapons!
  • Lots of secrets that can lead to early acquirement of better equipment!
  • Few minor tweaks to the base game such as save points, etc.
  • Useless finds now replaced with good items or equipment!
  • All weapons/armors used by characters no longer in party are now usable by at least one character from the end-game party!
  • MOST items/equipment are now non-missable. Meaning they will be acquirable in some ways at end-game.

Dream come true for FF4 fans

Reviewed By: Ninjatemper on 15 Nov 2019

If you love FF4 but always felt that some elements in the original game were lacking or rushed, this hack is for you. All of the wasted potential that FF4 had is unlocked with this hack. It doesn’t stray far from the source material but instead increases the quality of the dialogue, battle system, and menu system.

New equipment and new spells / skills are plenty, but they don’t break the balance of the game which is quite a feat for something that was worked on by one person.

The main story can be beaten with about the same ease as the original game, but if you think yourself a pro, there are a ton of optional areas and secret bosses that will put your strength, strategic ability, and patience to the test.

On top of all this, the developer is very active in terms of working on this hack and is quick to respond to questions / suggestions from his player-base.

I can’t recommend this game highly enough and as a huge FF4 fan, I consider it the best ROM hack I’ve played to date.
