Well, it's a pretty memorable hack to play and looks like a good remake of original Super Mario World. Although there are just a few minor issues:
- glitched graphics, e.g. graphics of unused turn blocks when Mario interacts with them, Piranha Plant stems in YI3, events after beating DP1
- cutoff piece of gray pipe in DP1
- "unfinished" secret exit in DP1
Verdict: This hack is pretty enjoyable to play. I recommend it to people who want to have an experience with something different from Super Mario World or those who aren't familiar with the game enough.
Overall rate: 4/5
Well,good hack in general,but there are some ploblems:
on the world map,I don't know if is ZSnes's fault,but the road on it...appears buggy and sooooo bad to see,like a Commodore 64 games runs on a mid broken cassette.
Then,I think you should put 400 on timer,because 500 is too much even if you simply walk slow.And dificulty,should be changed on "normal"bcause even the first level is harder than first world of the original SMW.
Then,I don't have much appreciated the "menace words" of Iggy on hintblock before the fight VS him.He's the same,anything changed so you should cancel that block,or change some Iggy's pattern,(for example to make him faster)
And on last level,I couldn't find the secret exit:I seen a white tube,incomplete,pheraps that is the exit.Is incomplete,if is like so...
horewer,I like the levels how well make remember the original SMW,and that puzzle on Yellow Palace...I lost a life,thinking that it needs a glitch XD Then I got that's simpler than I thought,and resolved^^really splendid puzzle,in my opinion^^
I give 4 stars because those negative thing written here,otherwise it could be easy 5 stars^^keep it up,it could be a great hack in future^^
Well it lives up to its name, and you certainly tried to keep it as vanilla as you could. That said, I would still make a new overworld if I were you. Donut Plains 1 also felt unfinished, as much of it was flat, and the turn blocks were glitched, so fix that in the next update.
It's not a bad hack, hence why I've accepted it anyway, I just feel you should make it stand out a bit more.
