My first SMW hack! Yes, Mario has a fedora. Yes, it breaks the trend of naming hacks after other people. However it's not a kaizo hack necessarily, so I'm safe, right? ;)
The objective is to reclaim Star World from Bowser, however, the path to Star Road is blocked by magic! Only by defeating the bosses in the land will reveal the way. You may tackle them in any order, however all 5 must be defeated before confronting the tyrant!
The special world hosts levels made for Twitch and Youtube streamers, you can learn about them in the readme file :D
The point of this hack was to make it as fun as possible. So, have fun!
MAJOR EDITS: Fixed jank, made the special world change palettes after beating it, fixed some glitches in the overworld, and made switchless% actually possible, so you can beat it without needing to press any switch palace switches. Also edited the message after beating Bowser. Also fixed save prompts that weren't happening. ALSO fixed a glitch in yellow switch palace.
Way too many power-ups in my opinions. Or it should be listed as easy/very easy. You have levels with over 10 power-ups in them, all capes or flowers.
And also the "each level is dedicated to a youtuber" after the first few levels gets annoying very quickly.
Hey FedoraFriday! Nice romhack you got! While there are still a couple of bugs in this game, only one stands out, the infinite lives bug. In the level "Milkshake Canyon," on the warp that takes you to the water level, you can use the star and go below the torpedos to get around 8 lives out of each one.
Yo dude thanks! I literally just made this for fun, and wanted it to be fun. Keep in mind this version has bugs in it currently. In my files theres a version with some bugs patched out and some things rearranged. I still have one thing left I have in mind to edit, and thats the hammer bros in the airship level... they like to glitch in to the ground, and I might have a fix for it. After that, I think that's the final fix I can possibly make, unless I am told otherwise. Once thats all done and this hack is either approved or rejected, i will upload the fixed version and hopefully we'll be good!
Have to say, I enjoyed this game quite a bit more than I expected. I mean, when I read it was 'made for Twitch and Youtube streamers' and that it was your first hack, that set off a few million alarm bells. Most first hacks or ones made for YouTube personalities end up being completely dire like Super Kussotare World or Mario's Masochistic Mission or what not.
But no, it was actually a rather well designed traditional Mario game with a unique choice of art style (the Super Mario Maker graphics), some interesting design choices and a generally fair difficulty curve.
Congrats. You managed to completely subvert my expectations here.
