Salty Sagan World is a moderately challenging Kaizo hack dedicated to the streamer, speedrunner and scientist
CarlSagan42. It features a wide variety of levels mainly focusing on fast paced platforming with the occasional
item tricks thrown in. Most levels also feature custom music to give them more character, apart from that though
the hack uses almost exclusively vanilla SMW assets for that authentic SMW kaizo experience.

Engaing story with multiple endings
An escort mission
Updated to Version 1.01
Updated to Version 1.02
Updated to Version 1.1
Heavy nerfs to most levels to make the game more accesible
The Escort Mission was probably the hardest stage, and maybe the most frustrating also, although it was still a very fair stage, and after Version 1.1 the door entries were way more forgiving, which is probably the only reason I even finished the hack. Overall, an amazing hack with great design, I really wish Carl had the time to play it, especially since it's nowhere near as unfair as it used to be.
Just played half of the hack and I can see good level design in this hack so far. (Especially the cave level and 'The Escort Mission' in world 3). Had a lot of fun playing this (even my finger is kinda hurt now).
5/5. I recommend this one for experienced kaizo player.
This is a tough kaizo hack that requires a great amount of previous kaizo experience. The 1.11 patch fixed a lot of the issues I previously had and for the most part everything seems fair(for a kaizo hack) and well tested.
The levels flow very nicely and are well-paced. The Vertical Escort mission and the lava level were great spins on existing kaizo archtypes.
Small glitch abuse required for 100%: Double eating sprites with Yoshi and an easy keyjump.
@Oskise No, if you're close to the top, you can jump and stand in the ground out of the screen and skip some parts. Is easy to do. For example, watch this video in the minute 1:41:13
