A Sadistic Dragonfire Hack

Recommended Posts

There's really only one significant change here: The dragon shoots his fireballs much faster when you're inside the castle.

 

This version's a little more difficult than the original. :evil:

 

EDIT: If anyone's interested, I can tweak the speed of the fireballs a little faster or a little slower, and release multiple versions of the hack (Sort of Sadistic, Definitely Sadistic, Mega Sadistic, etc) :D

 

EDIT #2: By the way, I created this using the commented disassembly posted on AtariAge a while back. The original programmer, Bob Smith, let Al post it (many thanks to Bob and Dennis Debro!), here's the link to the original thread:

There is a way to fry it and get a super fast dragon on the castle. I have played around frying this one quite a bit. (it is on a 8 game multicart I have that when the toggle switches are flipped with power on will give some strange effects)

 

Great hack though, I never thought dragonfire was too easy as an original, so I don't know how far I will get with this hack. :)

Any faster and surely the game will become unplayable :ponder:

It's definitely still playable, but is much harder. I just wanted to make one of my favorite games a little more challenging.

 

Have you ever tried Thomas' Sadistroids? I was trying to accomplish something similar with this hack. ;)

Here's another Dragonfire hack that uses the opposite approach. The Dragon in the castle can't fire his fireballs high enough to hit you, so you can't die when you're inside the castle. Super Easy. :)

Whats the point of that?

 

No Death no Game unless you label it as a cheat hack

 

maybe you should include it in the "Boring" hacks section! :lol:

Heh, I know, there's no point to it. I'm just having a little fun here, so cut me some slack! ;) :)

 

Ok, on that note, here's another pointless, boring revision. :) This makes the "Easy" hack a little easier yet. I've made the player run about twice as fast, so you can run across the bridge faster. You'll usually make it across before anything is even fired at you.

 

No more pointless hacks, I promise. |icon_innocent.gif

I was kind of playing around with the easy versions of the hacks, but I did intend the more challenging version to be "legitimate". They're all code hacks, so it did take a LITTLE bit of extra work. ;)

Wow, the fireballs are insanely fast in the 3rd castle, I still haven't managed to get past it. Hint: In the first two castles, stay at the top of the screen as much as you can to avoid fire, just drop down to grab treasure and run back up. I've been able to get past the first two pretty easily without losing any lives. :D
