This is a fan-made port of Hydra Castle Labyrinth, a Japanese freeware PC indie game from the Metroidvania genre created by one E. Hashimoto also known as Buster. It has since been fantranslated to English and so far can only be played on PC.

An anonymous author from 4chan who is a fan of this game and wanted to have it on the go as well as for his own programming educational purposes, decided to port it to 3DS, including the English fantranslation by GaryTheKrampus and some minor convenience tweaks of his own. According to the author there is no plan on further updates.

Installation

Available in 3DSX and CIA formats (by Canzah).

This program uses DSP Audio. If you cannot hear any sound, you will need a DSP dump on your SD card.

Save data can be found in sdmc:/3ds/appdata/HydraCastleLabyrinth.

User guide

The goal was to recreate the game without altering the gameplay or feel of the PC game, but a few small intentional changes have been made:

  • English language is available in the options menu.
  • Fixed English character graphics.
  • Two text lines in item text boxes.
  • Item text boxes do not disapear until you press a button.
  • Weapons can be toggled back and forth.
  • Weapons can be toggled while on ladders.
  • The blue and red gates open by hitting them with your sword.
