Friday the 13th - NES classic horror back with improvements

In 2014 one of our reviewers Duston Justice, did a terrific review of the 1989 NES horror game ' Friday the 13th ', which was developed by the Japanese game developer Atlus. He noted the idea of having any significant blood, gore, or violence in a 1980's video game was unheard of, and given both the limitations of the console and of what would have been acceptable at the time, ‘Friday the 13th’ on NES was a flawed but interesting and fun game, although some critics have said this was one of the worst NES games of all time. But now thanks to Harlemhero, this marmite game has been given a number of improvements to make it just that little bit more enjoyable.

According to Romhacking a bunch of edits have been made to the Friday the 13th game, which includes different sprites, improved sprites such as blood on weapons and hitsparks, more details on the zombies and counsellors, as well as text edits to the menu, and in game areas. As such it may not be a huge improvement the game needs but at least it's worth trying out :)

A patching program such as beat or Floating IPS will be needed to add the hack/patch to the main No-Intro Name: Friday the 13th (USA), which isn't available here.
