So guys hello and welcome to my C3 thread about my third hack. Like my previous hacks, this one uses SMAS graphics mostly. And this time, it's an SMB1 stlyed hack. Currently, it doesn't have an official name yet so it's still unnamed. SMB1X maybe?. Well as for storyline, this hack contains none. I'm not very good at those to be honest so yeah. Also, i recently finished working on my world 3 levels, good thing i didn't procrastinate as much as i have been lately. So yeah, 3 worlds finished and one level for World 4.
Anyways, Here's a few screenshots along the way.
Hope you guys liked it. :3
Anyways, i think i'll put a little demo as well. SMB1X(?) Demo
So yeah, i guess that's all i'll be saying here. Enjoy and stuff.
I playtested this hack earlier and had a lot of fun with it. It felt like a mix of all the pre-SMW Mario platformers. I also like how some levels had "throwback" sections that reminded me of classic Mario levels like SMB1 1-1 and SML 1-1.

I noticed a couple broken images. To those that are curious, here is what they look like (hopefully you don't mind me linking these Koyuki):
Now then. I was a big fan of SMB3X, having a lot of fun playing through the various levels. Based on the images for this hack, I think it's safe to say that the games will be fairly similar in nature. If it is, then I will most certainly be looking forward to the completion of this hack.
As Ersanio mentioned, I like the way that all of the SMAS "intermingle" together in all of the levels. I always have liked the SMAS graphics, but the way you've used them here, really does freshen up the style to them.
Another hack by Koyuki? Another SMAS-styled hack? Another hack with a nice mixture of graphics? Me want. I'll definitely have to give this a shot after C3 and finals...the screenshots look fabulous (except for the one with Boss Bass).
(Also, I swear your breakable brick graphics look almost identical to the ones I'm using in my hack...)
I've been playing ROM hacks for over two years now, and there aren't very many that I can say I would gladly re-play. SMB3X is certainly one of them, and I'm hoping this will be another of those. Heck, my playthrough of the demo from nearly two years ago has gotten over 25,000 views on YouTube (bar none my most watched LP to date), so I'm not the only one who seems to enjoy it.
Just a thought on a possible title though: in my opinion, SMB1X doesn't flow as well as, say, SMBX (if only that wasn't taken, right?). Perhaps something like SMXB (Super Mario X Brothers - probably even sillier, but it's just a suggestion). Keep up the awesome work Koyuki!
