Description: This ROM Hack is dedicated to one of my good friends, Dram55. It is the sequel to Super Dram World, which I also created in 2015. Dram55 is a Super Mario World Speedrunner who has held numerous World Records in the past. He has showcased some of his speedruns at Games Done Quick marathons and will (hopefully) return from the war soon.

This hack aims to be as vanilla as possible, attempting to keep that nostalgic, authentic feel to it. A special world is also included for any 100%'ers out there. An added bonus (which is actually useful) is given to those that complete the special world. The hack also includes a built-in death counter.

Special thanks to Kaizoman (Thomas) for helping me fix a lot of bugs as well as creating a lot of the ASM used in the hack. Another thanks to Umari0, who has helped rigorously playtest and point out any bugs found during the playtesting phase.

Good luck!


v1.1 (July 31, 2017)

- Fixed the grammar in two of the message boxes
- Removed a skip that allowed players to skip the second half of "Dram's Bathtub"

- Added a few more troll pipes for fun

An all time classic, thanks Panga for all you do.

Panga did it again, and this time he outdid himself. While the first Dram World game was like an appetizer, this hack was like a FULL COURSE MEAL, pushing your guts to the limits. Extremely replayable, super satisfying, and incredibly enjoyable. This hack is also really flashy and is great to play in front of people, with various shell tricks, fast autoscrollers, and intense battles with dolphins (that level was GOD-AWFUL!). Another example of a GRAND hack, where the level design is huge and feels momentous to play. Nice hack, Panga. Well done job, again.

Someone has to change the difficulty
to "Kaizo:Expert". It's much harder than
Kimota Link
This was largely a slog. Maybe a third of the sections were enjoyable. Dram 2 still has the odor of the original Kaizo series, as well as many derivative obstacles and level themes from Dram 1 (ex: the final boss is basically the same minus water). There is good new stuff here - for example, cape levels - but unforgiving difficulty makes it harder to appreciate.

The total absence of quality-of-life features contributes heavily to the "slog" feeling. In this hack, you will find: blindness, mandatory waiting, random kaizo blocks in open areas of air, no custom music, no retry, and the occasional jank. Wall clips are not patched so expect to die many times from losing your spin jump against a wall. Obstacles generally have to be manually timed, rather than "lining up" in the modern sense. Cut it some slack because it's 2017, but worth keeping in mind that much more modern feeling hacks like Super Glitchcat World predate Dram 2.

If you have played Dram 1, then the best description of this hack would be similar in style, but more punishing.

A beautiful TAS of this hack, made by IgorSantos:

Anyone know of a good set up video to play this? I don't have the emulator either. I would appreciate that a lot. 10q!

It's very cool. No wonder who got secret finish on the second level after 5 yoshi coins.

Been watching a bunch of streams of this hack on Twitch and I'm loving it.
Don't think I'll be playing it myself though. I suck at Kaizo hacks! :P

Fantastic hack, definitely top kaizo quality. I really recommend looking on twitch for the speedrunners playing this, it's a lot of fun to watch. I also had a lot of fun playing the hack (although I had to use some savestates, as I'm not very skilled with RTA plays), and I'm definitely going to TAS it at some point. 5 stars!

Your ROM is not clean, try downloading one from another source, then check what this tool tells you.

when i apply the patch it say this patch is notintended for this rom, the same thing happen with dram1 but i can apply the patch with other rom..
is there something else i need to do first?

@kallaan, thanks for pointing these out, I have fixed these and will either post a v1.11 with the minor fixes, or wait for a v1.2 to fix another issue I've stumbled across.
kallaan Link
I'm not sure the rule on posting cheese here, but you can still cheese Dram's Bathtub in v1.1
The first spot the cheese can be done has some death block in the way, however you can still cheese it at the second spot located after the pokey. There's also some invisible walls in the way, but you can swim under them.

There's another cheese at the end of Mushroom Palace that lets you jump across the blocks normally. Just a heads up in case you want to fix it, keep up the good work Panga.
