Hey guys, after I announced the new difficulty options a few days ago, someone mentioned that I should do the opposite of them too, so that casuals have some fun features to play with. I eventually warmed up to the idea, and now I completely agree – a lot more people will enjoy options to make the game easier. (and you can totally mix them, challenges and cheats, to make up your own difficulty settings, like in Bullet Heaven 2)
So here’s a list of cheats coming to Epic Battle Fantasy 5. They will all be unlocked from the beginning, and when enabled, will temporarily disable “Epic” achievements.
Super Effective: Foes’ elemental weaknesses are increased significantly. (for example, +50% becomes +100%)
Super Resistance: Equipment gives more elemental resistance. (you’ll be absorbing a lot)
Feeble Foes: Foes have 25% less HP. (if you want to rush through the game)
Blind Foes: Foes have 20% less accuracy.
Cowardly Foes: Foes surrender much more easily. (maybe useful for pacifist runs?)
Preemptive Strike: Always get the first turn in each wave in battle. (a lot of people want this to be a default feature)
Instant Healing: The party is healed instantly after every battle. (also a requested default feature)
Auto Scan: Foe info is always available in battle, without scanning them. (not in the bestiary though, so there’s no spoilers and no cheating the achievements)
Extra Attacks: Player counter attacks, unleashes, and other “free” skills activate more often. (a bit unfair to equips that don’t have any…)
Unlimited: Limit breaks charge 50% faster.
Summoner: Foes give 30% more SP when defeated, and max SP is also increased by 30%.
The goal with these cheats is to make the game easier, but not necessarily less complicated – good strategy is still rewarded. Also the effects of these cheats must not persist if they are turned off – so “Extra EXP” is not acceptable. Feel free to suggest more ideas if they meet those guidelines.
