Strange Hacks of Well Known Games

Postby lynchie137 » March 4th, 2018, 10:30 pm

Hi. Check out this really strange hack of Ms. Pac-Man I happened to stumble upon while perusing this website. It pretty much plays the same as the original, though instead of ghosts chasing you, there are firemen with hoses instead.

Also be sure to read the description of the game that's below the game window. Pretty interesting stuff.

I love this kind of stuff. I know these aren't really "hacks" but are cool variations on classic series.

Pokemon Red: in MInecraft- thought this was really cool. Not a fan of minecraft but the fact that this guy rebuilt Pokemon Red to play in Minecraft is super interesting.

Pokemon Type Wild:- one on one fighter using Pokemon. This actually looks really cool.

Here's a hack of Castlevania that I've been playing. It's called "Castlevania: Bloody Adventures". Aside from your character having a blood red hue, the main difference between this one and the original is that this hack is a heck of a lot easier. You get more power ups, more health refills, and it also seems like you get extra lives after scoring a specific number of points. Also, the enemies don't take away as many hit points from you if they hit you. I believe they only take one block of health as opposed to three or four like in the original. Which really makes negotiating certain levels of the game a lot easier.

Mind you. the game is still pretty tough. But at least I can beat this one. To me, this is definitely Castlevania for beginners. Check it out.

Another strange hack of Castlevania. This one is called "Skel's Revenge" and it has you play the role of Skel. It's about as difficult as the original, but I get a kick out of it all the same. Especially when he climbs up stairs.
