Finally!

Reviewed By: ultimateman on 26 Jun 2020

I’m so excited that someone finally made this hack!

It is an excellent hack that addresses most of my gripes with the original game. FYI I owned and played this game extensively when I was a kid back in 1993. It was always a solid game but it had some flaws and this hack manages to address nearly all of them.

The decreased difficulty in single player mode is welcome. CPU opponents in the original game seemed to block so nearly everything and time-out rounds were common. I would add that it may be a touch easy for fighting game veterans. I’d love to see a difficulty option added to the options menu in a future update.

The re-balanced inner strength system is much improved. A system like this can never be perfect but I appreciate the efforts of the author in greatly improving a system that really killed some of the fun of the original game.

The increased frequency of the overkills is also much appreciated. They were so rare before that you’d have to play for hours on end to have a chance to see one, unless you bothered to carefully set it up in 2 player mode. I managed to see 3 overkills on a single playthrough now. Great to see these made more accessible.

Like the other reviewer, I haven’t been able to get combos to work in single player mode. I’d love to see this changed in a future update.

Big thanks to the author as I’m sure I’ll get many hours of enjoyment from this very well-done improvement patch.
