Description: Want to waste 15 minutes? Check out this hack!

This is a hack I originally made around mid-2014 and revised a little after Christmas that same year to fix a few overworld bugs, along with a koopa in the first level and a glitchy koopa in level 4 due to the Sumo flames.

It's really easy, but somewhat well designed. Give it a shot and have fun!

There are some errors in this hack, such as in the Slow And Easy stage. At this stage 1 Dragon Coin is missing and as much as I look, I couldn't find it. There are also some blind jumps in this hack, such as the jump to catch the P after the midpoint of the Dread Pyramid stage, but nothing that gets in the way too much in the game. Note 4.

Nice hack!

It's a good hack! Sometimes some items are not needed, like one of the P switches in the first level, but overall it's a sweet hack!

Great job AlexMario!

This is a retrospective look at this hack by me, the author.

This hack is fairly well designed. It follows the SMW formula to a certain extent. It's all fairly linear and each level is short and no level overstays its welcome. It does have its flaws, however, such as the lack of memorability the hack as a whole has. It's all fairly generic, using vanilla music, linear design and being very easy you can't expect a lot of people to remember the hack in the long term.

It also suffers from a few technical and design flaws, such as the random unintended events in the overworld that occur, or "Slanted Pipe Run" not showing up when revealed by "Forest Tree Top Fun", or the koopa that drops down on the player in level one.

The hack overall, though, is somewhat well made. Better than some of my own later works, so I would recommend this more than, say, Good Question or even A Hack Thing 2.
