Tip: Switch palace switches normally disappear if you replay the level. However, if you insert them as direct Map16 and use the hex-edit at $00EEB2 in the ROM map, you can replay the level without a problem.
Quickie World is a fast paced Kaizo with very forgiving difficulty, meant for those who don't want to spend hours grinding out levels, but still want an exciting challenge. It includes 3 Worlds, 15 Exits, and custom music.
Inspired by games like:
- Korosu Mario World
- Super Gracie World
- Legends of Mario
Here's a list of things you won't find in Quickie World:
Great hack. Levels are short and flow very well. Checkpoints are well placed and appreciated. Would love to see another hack like this. This is my first Kaizo hack, and it is a good one to start with. I see myself playing this one for a while. It should be fun to speedrun.
GrandPooBear adviced this hack for new Kaizo players. And I approve of his choice! I've watched tons of kaizo hacks and 3 hours ago I tried my best on this hack. Fumbling about at the start as a new "kaizo player", but I am proud to say that I beat the first 2 levels in under 3 hours with 0 prior kaizo experience (and with little SMW experience). The geart music and short levels really help! Can't wait to play the rest of the hack!
Great hack for people who are new to kaizo. You learn a huge part of all the kaizo "basics" and it's not "frustrating" either. Really enjoyed the hack. Looks great, music is really good aswell and of course the gameplay is fun too.
Thanks for adding retry and nerfing the first castle. Having finished the hack, I enjoyed most of it. Indeed, most levels didn't require hours of grinding and took me less than an hour, with the notable exception of the second castle, which took eight hours. That level alone makes this a non-beginner-friendly hack.
I'm a noob in term of romhack and I am not able to apply the patch to my clean super mario world rom and I know that I did the manipulation correctly. If someone could help me I'd really appreciate it because I really want to play this romhack thanks.
So ive just played the hack. If i have to criticize something i would say the beginning message is kinda misleading, as ive found myself having to slow down MANY times. Like in the level "glitchcat lake".
While the hack is on the easier side and the levels are very short, i probably wouldnt recommend it as a first kaizo (or maybe even for real beginners) as it require the player to be somewhat confortable with the controller intricacies (mostly regrabs), and to have some good repertoire of tricks.
I've only play the first 3 levels and it's been awesome and easy so far. The rest of them I might play on stream tonight.
I think that it's the perfect romhack for kaizo beginners. You did a great job with this romhack.
This is my first difficult Mario hack and so far I am really enjoying it. I watched Barbarian play it on youtube and thought I would have a chance. It takes a complete beginner (haven't really played any mario hacks before) quite a while per level. So far I am on the second level ending. Cannot for the life of me get past that shell less koopa. So far I am really liking it as the sections per level seem really short, and I get time to practice little techniques.
EDIT: Up to the fourth level. trying to find a place to practice shell jumps though as I have never had to do one.
