"Super Mario 64 1.5 - Ztar Attack !" is a finished hack which has 170 Ztars (the longest non-extreme hack out there), and has, like SM64, paintings to going to levels (but they have a much stronger connection between them). Download it here!
So, you'd ask me... why didn't I continue Super Mario - the Forgotten Stars ?
Well... some times ago, I've stopped SMtFS because I wanted to improve my level-designs... so I've started to do unfinished concept-hacks.
And one of them was SM64 1.5.
So, for me, feedback and ideas are very important for me, because without them I won't progress !
As usual, Bowser kidnapped Peach. But this time, he has taken over
her castle to doing some experiments : he created some evil Stars !
He tried it on Peach's paintings (which still aren't back to normal)
and... he did obtain completly different worlds, taken over with his troops ! Now that he knows that these "Ztars" work, he wants to use them on Mario, to prevent him to save the princess again.
He has prepared a trap, to have him absorb their negative powers !
Will he accomplish his plan ?
