This hack is the recovery of a cancelled project in 2010,
Super Mario Land 4.
Like Super Mario Land 2, it's an open world game, you can access the 4 first worlds in the order you want.
In this demo, 2 of these 4 worlds are playable.
See the read me for more details.
2 ips files (one with the game in English, the other one in French).
2 read me and credit files (ENG and FR too).
La première et dernière démo de mon projet Super Mario Land 2.5
Ce hack est la reprise d'un projet abandonné en 2010 suite à de nombreux bugs, Super Mario Land 4.
C'est un jeu à monde ouvert comme Super Mario Land 2 où vous pourrez explorer les 4 différents mondes indépendamment.
Dans cette démo, seuls 2 mondes sont accessibles.
Jetez un il au fichier "lisez.moi" pour en savoir plus.
Le dossier ZIP contient:
2 fichiers .ips: Un fichier contenant la ROM en français et le deuxième, la même ROM traduite en anglais.
2 fichiers "read me", toujours pareil, un FR en un ENG.
By far, one of the most greatest examples of a 'perfect' Super Mario Land sequel. Very well thought out level design, and massive creativity all over this game. Your hack stands true to previous Super Mario Land titles, keeping its original charm and nostalgic music scores. The hack can be a bit difficult at times, but it's overall an outstanding masterpiece.
I hope to see this hack finished once and for all, to leave an impeccable mark in the SMW hacking community. I've been following the hack since its previous "Super Mario Land 4" version.
Maybe after this, we could see to a long awaited Super Mario Land 2 SNES remake? c:
Man, your Hack it's very COOL! The graphics are very original (i never seen before in a normal SMW Hack) very cool the soundtrack too, PLEASE CONTINUE THIS PROJECT, i play a lot of hack but this is the BEST! VERY GOOD JOB MAN! I HOPE you continue this Hack! VERY ORIGINAL!
pretty fun overall.
metroid level and western/future/jungle level were my favorites.
occasionally I thought mario looked derpy and the 4 gem door needed to be fine tuned a bit but this rom kept me playing all the way through.
If you are going to mash Mario World and Mario Land 2 together, go all the way instead of just putting a few things together and leaving lots out. Controls whist using the carrot power-up should be changed so you can just hold down the jump button and Mario will slowly float to the ground like on the GameBoy. Having to repeatedly press the button now to do the same is annoying. Try and stick to one look for enemies, SML or SMW. It varies by level so it lacks consistency. Also, some of the spelling doesn't appear to have been translated properly from French or you have mis-spelled it.
Apart from that though, it is a very nice looking hack and would love to see a full version of it.
Done moderating it. That was fun, enjoyable hack in most aspects.
Few little issues you should take care of though (note: I moderated the English version, assuming the French one possibly has the same issues):
1. Sometimes the second spike top in this area doesn't appear.
2. Got this red coin when it still wasn't visible. When the level scrolled up, half of it still appeared (however, it wasn't collectable anymore).
3. Thinking of possibilities, if the player somehow managed to lose the special powerup in this level, enter the pipe and come back, he'd possibly get stuck.
4. Blank message boxes.
That's it! I'm rating it 4/5. It'd have been a 5/5 but aspects like inconsistent songs choice (yeah man, I'm disappointed that almost every level has a different song, with completely different samples most of time) and too-detailed tilesets in some levels that don't fit the overall style of the hack at all.
