ALPHA SPHERE: Director's Cut is a more completed version of the HLDC 1st Place Entry that addresses many issues, and adds many things that fleshes out the experience. You play as Norma, a girl trying to escape a man known as Dr. Andre when she stumbles across an ancient relic. Now she must provide it a new home before the night time passes. There are 4 endings you can get, and many secrets to unravel.
Warning: This hack contains themes of suicide and implied sexual themes (nothing visual). The whole game is Red and Black, which may lead to eye sores if played for a long period of time.
- Use the warp at the beginning of the game frequently, as it sets multiple midpoints to warp you to the last "challenge" areas you've been through. (If you are not sent to the intended location, just keep trying again until you make it back).
- For your first run, ignore Dr. Andre's advice of returning the "Alpha Sphere" and keep going left to find an opened pit.
- Press START to skip the Game Over screen.
- Try talking to Dr. Andre more than once.
Very nice hack and story as well. However, when playing something caught my eye. After getting the sphere and going into the pit then entering the door, I went back out and found a surprise. An eerie static image fixed on the bottom left of the screen. Was this on purpose or is it just a missed bug?
