I played the entire hack, and for a first hack i have to say it's ok, remind me of my first one, when i didn't care if the levels were extremely anyoing of dificult (almost kaizo), and in some form, they were still memorable and fun to play, i had the same feeling with the hack, it was difficult, and i used save states to the limit, even doing things like shell jumps, key jumps, springboard glitches to pass to the extreme parts (or just by lazyness, i founded sometimes more fun to try to break it and do something crazy than actually playing like it was suposed to be, like in that ice cave level with the giant mole passage).
It was interesting trying to manage how to progress in the game, and thats something very rare to find, since some levels require the switches, yoshi, or even some powerups to get pass, i have to think a lot of how to deal some parts or how to get some secret exits, while the vast mayority of the hacks make secret exits like usseless bonus or secondary paths, you make them necessary to continue, i don't think if you have thought of it but is a really clever idea.
Obiously this hack won't be accepted in the Hacks section, due it's difficulty, overusage of munchers, bad palletes, cutoff, and some little things that make some people cry, if you don't care about that, i recomend this hack.

... Why the first level of like every hack has a shooting pipe.
