Aimed primarily at quality of life features for the players, this hack does not alter much of the core gameplay and still provides the classic gameplay experience of the original North American release of the game.

Many of the menus and dialogue moments of the game have been given a way to either sick, quick exit, or speed up; namely, the mission brief screen can be greatly sped up.

Instead of providing a health bar like many other hacks, this only opts to only increase the number of lives, maintaining the titles classic difficulty.


A little feature for those interested in perfecting their run, the game can be soft reset at the press of a button.
