Cadence Of Hyrule

Earlier in the week, Brace Yourself Games released a new update for the music-rhythm game, Cadence of Hyrule. This is a rather sizable patch compared to Version 1.0.1, which was limited to some minor bug fixes.

Version 1.0.2 adds achievements to the game and a "Beat Rumble" option that will vibrate your controller every time you're in battle. Leaderboard categories for co-op runs have also been added in and there are a number of bug fixes as well. Below are the full patch notes, courtesy of the Brace Yourself Games Discord channel:

  • added achievements
  • -added leaderboard categories for co-op. If co-op is used at any point during a run, the run will become a "co-op" run for leaderboard purposes
  • added more granularity to time-based leaderboard scores
  • added a "Beat Rumble" option, that gently vibrates the controller on the beat
  • added "(<character> only)" flyaway when a player picks up a weapon their character cannot currently use
  • added collision in several areas to prevent map escapes and dungeon skips
  • added an option to see the credits from the main menu
  • adjusted enemy movement behaviour when an enemy is being pushed against a wall by wind
  • adjusted player movement behaviour when holding an object while being pushed by wind
  • adjusted player movement behaviour when pushing an object while sliding on ice
  • added an option to change some HUD elements to improve readability for colour-blind players
  • changed HUD elements to grey-out when the player does not have enough stamina for that action
  • prevent giving out dagger/shortsword in "Flawless Victory" blue chest
  • fixed a bug that could cause enemies to take an extra move when the song looped
  • fixed a bug where bombs could be lifted after they had exploded, with unintended results
  • fixed a bug where game time would continue to count up if the console was put to sleep or quit to the home menu
  • fixed a bug where skipping the cutscene between phases of the Ganon battle could prevent him from refilling his health
  • many other bug fixes

For those wondering, the achievements require players to complete tasks such as defeat bosses, kill a number of enemies with a single bow and complete the game within a limited amount of steps. View the full list of achievements over on Reddit.
