Tip: Do not set the music bypass to 00 in a level with a P-switch/star; the music will endlessly loop.Not logged in.

After some further testing, 2 things I thought were impossible turn out to be possible, even if requiring a slightly different method of achieving it. I don't know how to insert a goal orb (yet) so that pretty green star is a place holder for it, to signify the very end of the 1-square room level. Without further ado, here is the revised final room, which is probably the most convoluted of them all:

Any sort of feedback or questions are very welcome, meanwhile I'll be starting work on other rooms.
Walljumps sound too unreasonable to have in a Kaizo Hard hack. Without frame advance it's essentially random chance that you jump and catch the wall, which isn't fun.
Having tidied up my 1 square room puzzle level, I am now ready to release it, along with 2 older levels! The other levels, known as The Worlds Longest Shelljump and Precise Perfection were created a while ago, but I have updated them with new pallets, title screens, overworlds, intros, and I have even extended Precise Perfection with more evil frame perfect sections, so they are now of a suitable quality to TAS from start to finish.

The 2 levels mentioned above are of course very difficult, but the 1 Square Room puzzle level is something special. It requires serious pit hack and glitch knowledge to even work out how to progress, and there are many puzzles the player will encounter during the playthrough, at parts that may have seemed trivial at first glance. This level is not for the faint-hearted, even for pit hack standards. Below are some screenshots, together with the download links for them.

The Worlds Longest Shelljump: A 1 room level featuring a grand total of 2 platforms to stand on (at the start and finish), 0 walljumps, and 18 shells, many of them you'll have to jump off of several times.

Precise Perfection: A 1 room level uniquely featuring 0 items whatsoever. The room pushes this gimmick to the absolute limit, with approximately 50 close-to frame perfect jumps.

1 Square Room: The one you're here for. A 14 room puzzle level, where each room is contained within a 16x16 square space. Often, the intended solution is not so straight forward, so you will need to abuse and reuse the objects and sprites you have available to the maximum, in order to progress to the next room. If a room seems too straight forward, then perhaps you'll find out later on that you actually needed to keep that powerup...

Enjoy! Many thanks to Bruno, Amaraticando, Kaizoman, Archie, and anyone else who helped me out on the Kaizo Discord <3

I start at the room with the goal orb in that square room hack somehow. Pretty sure that wasn't intended since you wanted your hack to be split into multiple rooms, which is a shame, but it's more than worth pointing it out.

Oops, thanks for pointing that out, I had changed the starting level during testing and forgot to put it back, fixed now :)
Hi there.

With the recent release of pit of insaneness 2, I've wanted to watch all the old pit hacks TAS's. So, I made a playlist with all the ones I could remember. I've simply named it "Hardest Super Mario World Hacks" to maybe appeal to people who aren't part of the community already, in order to potentially boost viewership and involvement in the scene. There's a chance that this playlist could become a "recommended" playlist to those watching TAS videos.

I'm intentionally only adding the current fastest times for each particular pit hack, to keep the playlist concise. I'd like to also add all the little snippet videos that various TASers post on their youtube channels, but don't actually consist of a completed hack. I'd move those to the end of the playlist.

If you know of any pit hack videos that you'd like to suggest to add to the playlist, just post here or pm me and I'll add it :)


P.S. Someone please TAS "Pitiless", it's been way too long with no one having completed it yet.

finish it dude :D or at least upload what you have already so I can add it to the playlist.
Very simple but creative stuff! Feels like an iwbtg type game, like a rom hack that could be a standalone title, rather than a smw kaizo hack as such. Refreshing to see something that at least looks original, rather than just combining things (and more abstract layouts, structures, and level progression) we've already seen before plenty in other hacks. Fantastic use of non-linearity and I look forward to the finished product :)
Looks great! Is there a video to pit of god 1?
