Mario has just saved Peach again in one of his many random battles with Bowser. They are headed back to the castle and pass though the woods nearby when suddenly Peach disappears again. With only 1 life left, Mario goes searching through the woods for her and finds a castle deep in the woods and suspects she may be in there.
But wait...this doesn't look like one of Bowser's Castles...
This hack was pure joy. I remember playing it long ago, and playing it again was a nice feel.
The concept is pretty cool, something we rarely see nowadays: a hack made of one but very long level. The design is pretty good, well varied and never feels boring. The gimmicks were pleasant, I especially liked how the boost blocks and the jump blocks worked trough the whole level. Definitely a hack I'd suggest to play if you're searching for good design.
The graphics are custom, mixed with vanilla elements. They work very well combined together; not a great gfx set, but still very consistent, it makes the hack feel very professional-looking. Too bad for the weird paletted cap powerup in most of the sections.
Some misc issues:
-In the cloud part, if you enter and get teleported to the outside part with the P-Switch music still playing, it ends up repeating endlessly for the whole section. Good thing after it you face the boss, so it will eventually stop.
-Some major slowdown with accurate emulators.
