Description:

This hack attempts to modernize the beloved cult classic The Battle of Olympus by giving it SRAM Saving function plus other various re-balancing adjustments to the game.

List of features, additions and changes:

1) Added SRAM Saving function! Speaking to the gods will SAVE the game, and pressing START at the password input screen will LOAD the game at an instant!

2) To reduce grinding, the drop rate for Olives has been increased. While the original game was great, the item prices were extremely high and grinding for Olives can take the enjoyment out of the game. Not to mention losing 1/2 of the Olives upon dying, which is why that issue has also been addressed…

3) The player now loses 1/8 of the Olives instead of 1/2 upon dying. This greatly reduced the frustration of losing/grinding Olives in the game, while keeping the overall difficulty. Minimal Olives grinding is still present.

4) Various texts changes and additions.

5) Passwords are still present and usable, so feel free to enter that super code!

6) 2 optional patches:

  • Adds blocks that extend the shores of Argolis leading to Phrygia.
  • Optional patch that reverts to losing 1/2 of the Olives upon death.
