Mario is Missing! Done Right, a 90-exit hack by Gamma V

I have completed Mario is Missing! Done Right, with all of the exits found in the hack. This hack is far superior than some of the other smaller hack projects done from yourself. I would definitely recommend Mario is Missing Done Right, due to the fact it has a lot of fun gameplay. It was also fun discovering every part of the hack without having to break a sweat on any of the levels, and the good thing that comes along with excellent levels? Great overworld design and having to play as Luigi.

There was some good boss battle sequences, especially setting up the Boom-Boom battles and Koopaling kids. The one con I can recall from the boss battles, is all of the Koopaling Kid fights are won by bopping them on the head three times. Even though there are custom bosses, it felt too simplistic OR it just didn't feel like it had inspiration.

As a traditional hack, you kept the difficulty setting just as perfect from World 1 onward; very easy to somewhat difficult is what a perfect ROM hack should be set. It does not disappoint when it came to the music, all because the music was used as recommended from the composer's keytags when it was submitted. To put this paragraph in retrospect, creating a rom hack with 90 exits is as hard work as it gets, but it turned into a work of art!

The hack, in general, looks, feels and finishes like a masterpiece! Despite boss battles that can be as simple as "three headshots and win", I had a lot of fun playing this hack! Mario is Missing Done Right is a recommendation to any and everyone who are new to Mario World gaming. Great work, Gamma V!

4 stars out of 5

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.
Ccedric68 Link
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.
lapilozo Link
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.
Nicoke42 Link
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!
Vallenatero2020 Link
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.
Aueipg3k 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:}

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

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.
supercrownjosie 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.
DedMeryo2008 Link
how do you play it
MiniPutin 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.
bsolt 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.
Kanekechi Link
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.
Holy Shinx Link
that was great, at a start i was bored because it was kinda easy but difficulty slowly rose up, spritework, level design and music is really nice, thanks for making it

This ROM is sick! Congratulation guys, very well done!!!
MysticTemptress 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
Mogu94 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 !

I really have enjoyed your hack for many days.

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.

I tried patching this with FLIPS and it crashes while doing so. Did the conversion from IPS to BPS mess this one up? Beat also said patching failed.

IMO there are alot of enemies, spamming fire bros in world 7 isn't the best way to make it hard.

Why does the ZIP of the hack show up as 666.66 KB on my phone... strange
joelcanciones From older version: Mario is Missing! Done Right Link
@Gamma V and @Mirann Thanks both for your answer. I found that what Mirann told me is true but the problem is that if you collecct all the Ace Coins in level 5-2 and then do the normal exit, when you enter the level again to do the secret exit, the Ace Coins won't appear again and you won't be able to enter the pipe that leads to the secret exit. In order to do the secret exit you will have to reset the game so when you enter the level again the Ace Coins appear again so you cand do the secret exit.
Megakoopax From older version: Mario is Missing! Done Right Link
I haven't played this yet but from the screenshots, this hack looks very promising. I love the concept of how this is what Mario is Missing should've been like and I can't wait to try it out.
bandicoot From older version: Mario is Missing! Done Right Link
Well, I think level design is more a personal taste,but I really loved the level design here, specially because the interection between sprites and platforms.
Some of your other hacks felt a bit repetitive in their design like Kola Kingdom Quest and SMB5 reborn, but here I found the level much better, also the graphics and music are very good.
So 5/5 stars here.

Congratulations for this new hack, your next new hack will be Super Mario Bros The Early Years?, how many levels are there?

niko From older version: Mario is Missing! Done Right Link

I dont like the very boring and repetitive design from this hack in many situations.

Its just not a very good level design for me, sorry for all the guys who love this, but i think a hack need more than a good lock.

I think the exactly same hack with a vanilla look will be have a lower rating, without all this eye candy.

But... its not a bad hack, no no, its just too simple to be fun for a long time. You play it for 15 minutes, have fun and then you play somtheing else.

3/5

90 outlet is not a secret a Stage I can't see it there, once completed, but with 89 exit.

Hi: I have completed the hack once and really liked it a lot and that's why I decided to play it a second time. But when I tried to get the secret exit from level 5-2, I could not enter the pipe that leads to the secret exit. I thout it was because I was playing using the second save file and thought that was the reason of the error (happened me before with another hack that only work properly when playing with the first save file) but even when I erased the first file and started a new game using the first save file and got there again by using cheat codes to make things faster but even in the first file couldn't enter the yellow pipe that leads to the secret exit. Could it be that I am using zsnes or is it something else?
Paddy From older version: Mario is Missing! Done Right Link
Very fun and enjoyable hack. Well done.
GamingWithDrew From older version: Mario is Missing! Done Right Link
I've only completed the first three worlds so far, but I'm having a blast playing this. It's not particularly difficult, but it's good, simple Mario World platforming fun just the way I like it. Job well done, Gamma! Can't wait to play more. I'm also currently uploading a let's play of this on YouTube for anyone interested. :)

Please re-download the hack. The previous version had some overlooks, which are now fixed in this accepted version.

It's a pretty fun hack overall with fun levels and graphics as a Mario game should be like. I didn't get (nor want) to play the original game, but at the end the hack makes a fun joke about it which I found hilarious.
