I'm going to be up front: this hack made me very salty in some places and for full disclosure I only finished any% (100% will come later).
The amount of tech that this hack requires you to do is no joke, and you will get better at kaizo games by playing it. There are some truly frustrating parts (which I won't spoil here), but in the end I feel like I am an improved player, and that's what's important to me.
While playing, I wanted to give this a 3/5 rating, but on reflection I have to give it a higher score, because it accomplished what I wanted it to do, which was to improve. Good job, white_moth.
I just finished this hack without tools after 34.5 hours. It was my third Kaizo hack after Super Mario Pants World and Quickie World, and so was a pretty big difficulty spike. It's a very technical hack and I didn't know a lot of the required tech going in (e.g. regrabs, thwomp jumps), but it was sufficiently well designed to keep me going. I occasionally didn't know what I had to do, but it always seemed fair.
This is a great hack for anyone who has a few Kaizo hacks under their belt, or doesn't mind spending a couple of hours per level learning new tech.
Just finished this hack yesterday, and it was definitely worth the download A great introduction to Kaizo, and in my opinion, a game that really everyone should play if they're trying to get into the genre.
Graphics are almost entirely vanilla, but still feel fresh enough to be unique. Don't remember a single bad palette or unpleasant graphical glitch. There's a lot of unique obstacles that feel fair and heavily playtested, with just enough trolls to keep you on your toes. Levels are definitely on the shorter side and saves/checkpoints never feel too far away. Music is entirely vanilla, but not much of an issue to me.
Only minor complaint is that the retry system sometimes restarts the music loop and sometimes doesn't (most notably, it will in the first room of the final castle but not the second?), but that's a really minor gripe for an otherwise-great game. Should be fun enough for experienced Kaizo players to get a kick out of it, but easy enough that players with adequate SMW experience should be able to jump in.
Currently playing this after doing some studying at kaizo college in super mallow world. this is one of my first kaizo experiences and man I'm loving it. Shootout to white moth for doing an excellent job on the design I can only imagine how hard it is to make a kaizo light game and actually have it be fun for newcomers like me. He has the seemingly perfect ratio of kaizo blocks, hilarious trolls, and difficulty so that it stays fun and exciting but not heinous haha. Great stuff and a great intro to kaizo. cheers and RIP BeeKaay
I've already tested this hack before, and it has become pretty manageable, no doubt. It really teaches the players the basic mechanics and it's beatable without savestates. For now I have nothing "serious" to complain.
The title screen text is still bad to look at, but I don't know what you could do besides changing the background, which is something you wouldn't want to do, probably.
Aside from NeXuS learn to kaizo the hack that taught me the most would be Gracie world really great game really fun and just hard enough that you can enjoy it without slamming your controller of the ground
