This is the best fully-vanilla hack I ever played, it really feels like a game that nintendo would have made if they decided to do a sequel reusing smw engine.
There were some very cool and clever ideas using the smw elements, and the hack really brings the nostalgia that the vanilla smw did.
I give this 5/5 stars!

This is one of the greatest, if not the only hack made by RAGB. Even though the hack was created some period of time back in 2006, this hack has been very fun and very creative. For this traditional vanilla-based hack, I liked the challenges in which casual and hardcore gamers alike can conquer.

Sometimes, there are some reviewers who often complain about secret exits or even ghost houses for that matter. I actually did not really complain about the ghost houses, mostly because it's easy and straightforward to know that all of them have secret exits to no surprise.

Everything used for the vanilla hack was well put together into an action-packed 59-exit adventure. I loved everything that was assembled into one hack. So far, nothing went wrong with the hack besides some confusion with secret exits and ghost houses.

5 stars out of 5

Fun game. Little challenging at time for the casual player, but a fun casual play for anyone who wants to take a break from the chaos known as kaizo... Def recommend to people who like the original SMW!

I just finished playing this hack on my Twitch stream after Pixel-Gon Gamer recommended it to me. I had played it before, but got stumped for years on the Wiggler Ghost House. I only now figured out what you're supposed to do there. Beyond that, some secret exits stumped me to the point of having to look them up after questioning whether or not they even existed. Still, what I appreciate most about this hack is its difficulty, which isn't as overbearing as that of most other top-tier hacks. I also love how creatively RAGB used the vanilla assets, such as having a moving Layer 2 in a water level. Beyond the occasionally obtuse secret exits, my only real complaint would probably be the use of 1-block-wide platforms in some of the ice levels, as single-block platforming and ice physics don't exactly mix.

The complaints here are valid especially with the secret exits and ghost houses most are just straight up not fun. Otherwise some elements are really nice and pretty fun overall 3 out of 5 for me maybe 3.5

Wiggler Ghost House is absolute cancer.

Only just got into playing ROM hacks (SNES Classic mini) and I'm so glad I did! Super Mario World is my favourite game of all time and I was always sad that they never brought a sequel out with the same style and gameplay (Could never get into Yoshi's Island).
This was the first hack I played and I loved it! This is much more what SMW2 should have been like! Only downside for me was the lack of a starworld.
Thanks for a great hack!

Great work! I can tell you worked hard on this. My only complaint is that there are too many lives and some puzzles can't be reset. Keep it up! 7/10

This Hack feels very much like the Original Super Mario World (except for the linear Overworld). Other than that, i had quite a lot of fun Playing this Hack.

I also spend much time in Choco Peninsula 6. I tried to finish the Level without using the Platforms - which works! It's just a little Hard. But it was a lot of fun to attempt a challenge like this.

Thanks for this cool Hack! I rate it at a 4/5!

If SMW had DLC expansions back in the day, this hack ostensibly could have been one of them.
Overall good level design
Good warp pipe areas/rewards
A little short with no Star World or Special World. Pretty linear too
Odd choice always putting checkpoints right next to boss doors in castles
Takes 5-10 hours to beat 100%
Specific highlights include:
- Ludwig's Castle
- Frozen Valley 4 (a very vertical level)
- Choco Peninsula 6; Dastardly good design
- Bowserland levels and Bowser's Castle
- Yoshi's Secret Isle
- Some of the secret exits
Lowlights:
- A few repetitive, uninspired levels like Wiggler's Woods 2
- Wiggler's Ghost House is dumb
- Urchin Ocean (the water levels) drags on too long
- Some secret exits aren't fun. Will make you backtrack the whole level or do the same tricks as previous secrets

4/5

I've almost finished this one, and I've liked it so much... till now. The hack is a great vanilla one, and I would suggest it to anyone who likes vanilla, however, I'm not a very skilled Mario player and I can only handle no more than normal difficulty, but I have to say that Bowserland is really too hard respect all other levels. But not a reason to not download this, seriously, it's just me and my lack of skill

this hack is very good at emulating super mario world's level design. it's rather slow-paced but it's mildly entertaining enough to keep you interested.

however, the overworld design is disgustingly linear. there are no sidepaths or forks in the road, almost no secret levels and very few things that are optional. while the author demonstrates skill at imitating the original game with the levels, the overworld does about the exact opposite and is about as open-ended as one of the nsmb games, maybe even less so.

probably the biggest issue i have with the overworld is that there are at least 4 spots in the game where you have to find the secret exit to progress via the normal exit takes you in a circle. the secret exits themselves are well-hidden and more well-designed than most secret exits i've had to deal with, which makes it all the more disappointing that they're not optional. even if they just took you on an alternate route i would be fine with it. but they are mandatory to advance on a linear path and it bothers me so much.

that said, the levels themselves are satisfactory and enjoyable in their own right. i was bored to death of the water world, but overall as a package these were some nice levels. but the overworld disappointed me greatly and i wish so much that it was more non-linear.

it's good, but it's held back from being great. 3/5

This is the first hack I have played and the one that got me inspired into hacking. Overall, the game is good and the levels are fun, but there are some hard parts like World 4. It really feels like a true sequel to Super Mario World.

I can't manage to find Yoshi's Island 3 secret exit... I'm stuck.
Since RAGB is gone, maybe someone can help?

Hello RAGB,

A really pleasant to play vanilla hack, levels and overworld are very interesting. It is an easy one (compared to others tagged "Normal" in difficulty), and it was no problem to find all 59 exits without using savestates.

I really enjoyed playing it, it could really have been the sequel to Super Mario World, and the idea to add water and ice world is very pleasant =]

10/10 (5 stars) Thank you =]

This hack is sooooo good, I totally recommend it.
But I would want it to be longer, like adding an another world (It could be a Desert World), Star Road and Special. But besides that it's really good, totally recommend it! (Sorry for my bad english)
