Finally, the "definitive" edition of Mother!

Reviewed By: jdsteel7 on 24 Jul 2020

This hack combines the best of all worlds by utilizing the gameplay fixes brought about in the 25th Anniversary Edition, while restoring the classic visual charm that separates Mother 1 from the sequels. That’s not all though, Night Falls successfully incorporates some of the graphical changes that the 25th Anniversary edition brought, so the game looks better than the vanilla game without changing the look drastically. The result is a polished, “faithful” edition of Mother that is approachable to newcomers but still challenging enough throughout the whole story to be fun.

Thank you Night Falls for making this gem!

10/10 - played through the whole game with no notable glitches

Version 1.2 Recommended - Yes
