Item Abuse has been one of the all time great pit hacks. An awesome combination of glitches, tricks, and insanely hard jumps. The hack has a unique layout with every room having its own theme of abuse. It immediately asserted its dominance as one of the kings of all pit hacks as it introduced a lot of crazy techniques that require a high level of patience and a lot of savestates.
The hack has been around for quite some time, and has had its fair share of TASers attempt to destroy it. Although they have to some extent succeeded, the hack is still a brilliant display of the possibilities in Super Mario World.
This hack requires a knowledge of basic glitches and a high skill level, as well as the use of emulation tools, such as savestates and slowdowns. For the average kaizo player, this hack presents the ultimate test for a players ability, as beating the hack on its own is an accomplishment in itself. While for the more experienced, pit crazy players it present the insane challenge of "how good are you?" with its competitive TASers fighting to beat the level as quickly as possible.
Item Abuse is the only true test for a kaizo lover.
