Dragon Warrior 3 "Hardtype" for NES


Recommended Posts

Just wondering if you guys heard about this rom hack.

 

http://www.insanedifficulty.com/board/index.php?/topic/4639-dragon-warrior-3-hardtype/

 

 

If it's harder than 2, then it'll be frustrating, to say the least... Well I'm going to find out myself! :D

 

 

EDIT: Ah, damnit, I thought I was in the general forums. If a mod could move this around, it would be grand. Thanks! :D

;) Dragon Warrior III Hard Type? What did they do, Double the enemy's over all power? If that's the case then OH GOD Baramos will be a nightmare, a nightmare of MALROTH proportions.

I believe they've made the end-game much harder, but they've also balanced the efficiency of some spells, making them useless. They've also turned Thor's Sword into a sage-only staff, and they've broadened the range of equipment certain classes can equip.

 

So they've properly balanced it in mid-game, but made it quite unforgiving at end-game.

 

 

Edit: just tried a new game, went out solo with starting gear, and I got MURDERED straight up by Slimes and a Black Raven, with them dealing 3 damage shots. That is a LOT considering you usually get hit for either 1 or nothing by those. The starting enemies are dealing Giant Anteater / Horned Rabbit damage right off the bat. So yeah, it is hard right from the start.

nope, don't like hardtypes. They're hard for everyone but the maker.

;) ^ As someone who dabbles in game design them self this line is pretty accurate. Back to the topic at hand, I doubt I will play this hack one, I'm not a fan of Insultingly Hard Games and two, I have some really good memories of Dragon Warrior III, I would not want to soil them by playing this.

I have yet to play a truly balanced hardtype. They are typically poorly coded, especially in the case of a lot of SNES hards. There is one FFMQ that literially makes it impossible to play without cheating.

Yes. I maxxed the hero out and still had trouble in the Bone Dungeon because the hack maker took out healing items and spells.

 

GBA Torneko plz.

@Ryu: That's just down right horrible game design right there, ANY RPG needs to have some Healing Items and some form of Healing and Attack Magic. Otherwise you might as well make a Platformer or an Action Game.
