I found something unusual in the W4 fortress
the bottom bar said W★ instead of w4

Very good. I stopped trying to get every exit after 5-2, but I got at least one exit per level, and finished the game in a bit under five hours. Nearly an hour of that, I think, was the final castle. It was a little too difficult--too easy to make a mistake over such a long level. Still, a great hack.

What a great hack ! A lot of work has been done and we can feel it in every level. Graphics are pretty, music is perfect, everything is at its right place #smw{:TUP:}
I enjoyed my playthrough from level 1 to credits. Thanks a lot for this amazing hack #smw{:peace:}

I really wish this had a 2 player mode. I know it wouldn't make sense to have Mario as 2nd player, but I'd honestly be fine with both of them being Luigi if 2 player mode was implemented.

I can't get down the yellow pipe at level 5-2 to go to the Key room, it simply doesn't work. I don't know if it is a problem with my ROM or with the emulator I'm using. Have anyone had the same problem?

edit: for whatever reason, it only works right after you collected the five A-coins.

Overall a very enjoyable hack. Pretty easy, but still some challenge and fast platforming towards the end. Good music, graphics and overworld. I don't get the obsession with the fire spitting piranha plants though :D

The last boss really got my heart pumping, I feel that if I had died a couple of more times to it I could have hated it because
of the amount of level you got to do over again
but it was exciting and well done, really a satisfying ending.

I'm missing 1 exit and found all of the red level exits, I guess i'm missing a Ghost House or something... Could you tell me what it is?

Thanks and awesome work!

I love this hack. Makes Mario is Missing! Be what it should be: a platform adventure game in the style of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World, and not a boring educational game. Thank you, Gamma V.
Posted by: Vallenatero2020 - | Link
If you were unlucky like me, you played the Mario is missing educational game.

But thanks to this hack I can finally play a real Mario is missing, and also created by the incredible Gamma V!

10/10 #smw{:TUP:}

How Can I Play It On Snes9x 1.60?

Edit:Wait. I Figured it on

what is the music you used for the overworld final world 7?

Ah, Good ol' Gamma V. You never fail to impress. Where to begin?!

You had me at the title screen. I actually streamed playthrough of this hack. It was most enjoyable indeed. I've begun to know a hack is made by you when I see Alliteration in level titles! #w{xD}

Graphics Amazing as usual. The color palettes in levels set a feel (along with music choice) for the whole level. The OW was ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. The music choice in each world brought back so many memories! You even threw in some non-mario baddies! I almost didn't catch that! Hahahaha!

Your music choices are another thing I loved about the hack (Again, they never fail to impress!). It was fun picking out what tracks were from what game. Oh, and the mood they set. Just wonderful. This could have easily been its own Mario game back in the day.

The coding/ASM Fanciness threw me for a loop. And you call this a CHOCONILLA HACK?! I can't imagine what a fully chocolate hack would be like from you. The thought both scares and excited me. Without giving spoilers away, the "Flippity Flop house" really creeped me out in a good way. I would have never expected that!

Overall: WOW! What a hack! Everything from the boss fights to the comical nod to SMB1 at the final boss had me giggling and cheering. Way to go! I can't wait to play your newer stuff! You've definitely got a fan in me. I'd give 100 stars if I could!

I think it's more a nod to the original SMB then an oversight.

Amazing hack! The difficulty curve kind of spiked towards the end of the game, but it was forgiving after I beat it lol.

Posted by: PSI_Digglit - | Link
Pretty good hack, music is great and levels are good, but the controls are reeeally bad. #ab{:S} Sometimes i can't switch directions mid jump and momentum won't stop. It might be my emulator, but it's never happened with other hacks.
Posted by: TetrisKid48 - | Link
This hack was seriously cool. The graphics, the music, the level design, the natural difficulty curve... It all feels very professional and Nintendo quality. If I have any criticism, it's that the boss fights felt undercooked, outside of Bowser. But the level design is so good that this is a must play for people who want to play a romhack that makes them forget it's not an official sequel. 5/5.
Posted by: supercrownjosie - | Link
how do you play it
Posted by: DedMeryo2008 - | Link
Loved it. There were some levels in World 7 that were too hard compared to another levels in the same world. The rest is great; music, graphics, level design... Would play again in the future.
Posted by: MiniPutin - | Link
Finished my play through - all 90 exits.

I am relatively new to playing SMW hacks and found this one to have a great difficulty arc with interesting level design!

5/5 for me and I would recommend this hack to many others.

This really is a fantastic hack, and by far one of the best hacks on this website. Keep up the good work Gamma V!

Graphics - 20/20 - Really nice; inspired by Super Mario Bros. 3 graphics I presume.
Level Design - 20/20 - The levels all had a unique spin on it, which never gave me the repetitive feel other hacks give me.
Difficulty - 16/20 - The hack started out way too easy, but the difficult progressed very smoothly into a nice amount.
Music - 18/20 - I really appreciated the music, and it was very cool how it was mostly remix's of other game's musics. I think
there should've been more original tracks though.
Overworld - 18/20 - The overworld was really interesting, how each world was it's own sub-area. The one problem with this is that you are unable to scroll around and look at the map.

Final Rating - 5/5 - Five stars, because it's a truly fantastic hack, that everybody should play. I had tonnes of fun playing it.

He descargado el ROM pero no puedo jugarlo en mi emulador para celular (John SNES lite)
I downloaded the ROM but i can´t play it on my cell phone emulator (John SNES lite)
Posted by: Yuyo - | Link
This ROM is sick! Congratulation guys, very well done!!!
Posted by: Actos - | Link
I just saw this on youtube someone was playing. This looks so darn cute, but I can't seem to get it to work. I patched the game, but the game just opens up to Luigi falling into a pit after I choose my file. I really wanted to play this and show my father who loves the mario games. Did I do something wrong? lol

Edit: Nevermind- I figured it out. Don't use an old Emulator. (Did not see a marking that said what emulator works and what doesn't. Why did I use the old emulator? Netplay lol. Snes9x 1.53 and Zsnes 1.51 is good lol)

The pipe of the world's secret exit 5-2 is not working

I have already collected all the A-coins and I can not enter
Posted by: JooJBr - | Link
A 4 out of 5 at this time, in world 5. Will edit later if I feel different after completing.
Also, the Chomp graphics are x-flipped. They don't face the correct directions in this level. Just something to point out. Did not notice this in any other levels that have Chain Chomps.

Edit: Would rate it as a 4.5 out of 5 if that were possible.
There's a lot I love about this hack, like the custom graphics, most of the level design and the ASM (sprites, patches, etc) that are used. At the same time, there's some instances of custom graphics that I find odd looking like the small Koopas without a shell graphics (all of them) for one example. Level design is on-point through most of the game but the difficulty curve at points drops down to being really easy in later worlds. An example of this (at least to me) is 7-7 which was super easy.

This level I found to have a lot of blind spots where these spike balls could easily catch you off guard...but maybe I'm just impatient?

A few cases of lag I experienced are here and here

A very minor nitpick is the layer 2 hitboxes but I'm not sure what you could even do about that. It clips through the block and hurts Luigi. Another is these cannon balls. They're a little too fast IMO and could be just a tad slower.

In some ways, it feels like a true Mario game. in others, it does not (like the graphics as I touched on earlier. Not all custom graphics, some).
Very solid work overall.

@LucasRCD Oh didn't think about that while playing but it totally makes sense now, thank you =]

I'm pretty sure that's just the bonus star counter, which I'm assuming doesn't change because the goal tape doesn't give you bonus stars in this hack. In other words, it serves no purpose in this hack, but it would in other hacks that use the same status bar and have bonus stars enabled.

Hello GammaV,

Another wonderful work =] There are inventive colorful levels and sprites, and so is the overworld. Music is awesome too. Bosses are a little tricky but also inventive... really I loved every level of the game !

All 89 exits (90 counting Bowser but the game does not save after beating it) are reachable without using savestates. Last world is in fact more challenging, but that's fine for me.

A question though : what does the '0' stands for in the bottom right middle box ? The number never changes throughout the game. I thought it was related to the A-Coins, but I found all of them and didn't change anything ?

10/10 (5 stars) A big thank you for you and all your team. You guys are awesome !

You need to collect the A-Coins to get it.

Secret exit pipe in 5-2 does not work.

Edit: Thanks i could get the secret exit using your advice! Really nice hack. Last worlds get a little hard, but i enjoyed it all the same.
