Hordes of Nei

This is a thorough alteration of Phantasy Star for the Sega Master System to make it better tie-in with the rest of the classic Phantasy Star series.

The monsters now come at you in large numbers, so be prepared to fight the Hordes to get where you are going. As for Nei... that is for the player to discover!

Hell Mode Mod

This is a comprehensive hack of Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millenium for the Sega Genesis. The general idea behind this mod is to have every battle be a fight for your life! Every monster has been edited to greatly raise the game’s difficulty, making each battle much longer, especially late-game. And yes, despite the difficulty increase, all monsters give the same amount of experience, so, welcome to hell!

Features:

  • All characters have an average of 3 new Techniques and 3 new Skills.
  • The four "NOTHING" items have been added and can be bought at various shops across Algo.
  • Many new combination attack possibilities.
  • Items with a special battle effect have had their power greatly increased.
  • Easter Eggs in regard to two of the characters unavailable at the end of the game.
  • New descriptions for equipment that did not have them.

Purgatory Mode Mod

This is a comprehensive hack of Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millenium for the Sega Genesis, built off of the Hell Mode Mod patch. The general idea behind this mod, like Hell Mode, is to have every battle be a fight for your life! Every monster has been edited to greatly raise the game’s difficulty, making each battle much longer, especially late-game.

The main difference between this patch and the Hell Mode patch is that all the enemies are now immune to instant death attacks and status effects.

Features:

  • All the changes from Hell Mode Mod.
  • All characters have an average of three more new Techniques and three more new Skills than Hell Mode; replacing the ones that became useless from disabling instant death and status effects.
  • All the equipment in the last third of the game has had its attributes raised to better combat the Purgatory monsters.
  • All Na-level Techs and every character’s final Skills have had the power increased.

Phantasy Star III: Nial Edition

This ROM patch changes a lot. It fixes the dialog to make more sense, the text is actually heavily edited and gives more depth to the characters. Most of the equipment has been renamed to fit more to the Phantasy series, and make sense. (Why someone could wear a robe made out of steel, but couldn't wear armor has always been beyond my comprehension.) Equipment has been heavily edited to be weaker than its original, causing enemy battles to be much more complicated. Shops now sell equipment that makes sense for where you are in the game. EXP and MST has been doubled to prevent building up, don't worry, due to equipment edits battles are more complicated. Bosses have been edited to be actual battles on your hands. Draconia has become a "Challenge World" with fearsome enemies, and all 3 towns have a special surprise inside the shops waiting for the players who dare take on the Challenge of Draconia.
