Hack 3 is a ROM hack of the 1990 Nintendo game Super Mario World. It plays similarly to a typical Mario platformer, except that every level has a unique obstacle to overcome, which is explained to the player as they start.
Hack is not Standard: Normal, should be changed to Hard/Very Hard. In Bodacious near the end of the first room, often the usually pretty much required mushroom doesn't spawn. It's very tight to get through but if both piranha plants decide to spawn, it becomes impossible. This is a problem when you have to replay the entire level for the star coin thing at the very end, especially if you die trying to get up there. Not sure how someone is supposed to find some of these on their own. Should probably have used midpoints, there are clear points in most levels they would work. That would be the only way I could see this as "Standard: Normal".
You should be able to reach it by pressing down on the Space Center.
Could you please fix the bug where you can't access the star if you save the game after unlocking the path on the Space Center (or something, not sure what I did)? My save file got stuck with 27 stars and I can't access the remix levels. I simply can't go down.
I didn't 100% it, but I finished the 9 base levels + ??? and have to say that - after over a decade of not playing SMW romhacks, it's good to play one so well-designed that offers such a unique challenge. The music was excellent without sounding hollow / soulless like a lot of other SMW Custom songs. The level design was perfect, graphics crisp and very much in tune with official Mario! I love it! I'll likely go back later to 100% it and give a better, updated review, but for now: 9/10!
uhm... whats this all? :o http://puu.sh/ss8gK/c805853600.png
and yea this hack was amazing fun. i'd say its hard in difficulty not normal but that might just be me in some levels. i really enjoyed this hack and im sad that it was so short, im gonna play the other hacks you made aswell!
Important: Do not save after you have activated the star pad. For some reason, the path disappears after you reload your safe file and such prevents you to get the 100% if you haven't beaten the remix courses yet.
