Backwards Mario World is an easier hack that parodies the storytelling/style in most rom hacks.
This hack features an interesting overworld design where you play through the events/levels as if they already occurred. Additionally start-select is enabled because Mario has technically beaten the game already. Good Luck!
-Fixed a major bug where using start-select made it possible to skip to a midway entrance in every level.
-minor changes to graphics in Xen's Castle
-Fixed a spawning issue in Dode River
-Changes to Credits
-Fixed some palette/graphical issues
-Minor changes to indicators
-Fixed a minor bug with RB's Shell Cavern.
-You can now switch the on/off blocks with L or R in Xen's Castle.
This was my first mario hack and was perfect for me to learn on. I really appreciate the work you did in this. For someone as new as me it was still a real challenge but I learned so much from it. Shell cavern was a necessary evil for me.
A great hack. This was only the second I completed and it had a fair amount of tricks across shorter levels which made the difficulty seem fair, but challenging.
It was great practice for various tricks that I was not the most consistent on before, but learned throughout.
As I was goofing around with the completed file I did find one oddity in the game. I had completed RB shell cave up until the pipe and then when to another stage. When I went back to shell cave the game started me above the level. It was not a soft or hard lock as I could navigate to the pipe to get to part 2, but it did present confusion the first time. Not sure what caused the issue, but I was able to fix it by completing the stage and then it started at the correct place and then replicated the issue a few more times by going to the midway and then start selecting out.
