Quickie World is a fast paced Kaizo with very forgiving difficulty, meant for those who don't want to spend hours grinding out levels, but still want an exciting challenge. It includes 3 Worlds, 15 Exits, and custom music.
Inspired by games like:
- Korosu Mario World
- Super Gracie World
- Legends of Mario
Here's a list of things you won't find in Quickie World:
I FINALLY!!! beat Sawrfing Castle. The Special world was a great conclusion to this hack. Great hack for beginners and anyone looking for a fast paced kaizo experience. And the credits song is a banger!
This was my first kaizo hack, and I had a blast! I didn't get stuck too badly anywhere aside from Sawrfring, but even that was a lot of fun. I had to look up a few things I didn't know how to do, but overall a very beginner friendly hack!
A really fun hack, which is perfect for developing a growing kaizo skillset. The stage lengths are challenging without being overwhelming for new players. Definitely a staple hack for anyone new to kaizo. Beating Sawrfing Castle feels like graduating from kaizo high school. Fantastic hack!
I loved this hack, and it was a great introduction to kaizo. Even Sawrfing was great for all its difficulty. It helped me develop some skills I was sorely lacking, and helped me learn how to find cues for setups and how to grind productively. Great game, thanks Valdio.
Any harder and I would have had to give up. Any easier and I would have been bored. Absolutely perfect thing to play after Kaizo Kindergarten (which I didn't quite finish, but it taught me enough to complete this one)
I know nothing about Kaizo games. This hack was my first game to try that quickly forced me to go play Kaizo Kindergarten, which I wasn't able to beat, but did teach me about shell kicks? After giving up on Kindergarten I picked up Quickie World and after plenty of suffering was able to finish it. I used 1 save state in Sawrfing Castle, but a stage with no checkpoint = fair game to save states. And I did try, about 600 times. Overall, if I can beat this game, even if I did only use 1 save state, then anyone can play this and eventually beat it. It felt great to finally get through it. Highly recommended hack. Do play and don't rage, take breaks, watch a play through if needed. Sawrfing Castle is the hardest stage in the hack because it has no check point, don't bash yourself if you need a save state.
I'm not finished with Sawrfing Castle, I'm still working at clearing it "properly" with no save states, and I will eventually.
*finally beat Sawrfing Castle without save states*
This was my first ever hack that I've finished, and my third hack that I've ever played (I spent some time on Learn 2 Kaizo and Kaizo Kindergarten, didn't finish both), and even though I'm a complete beginner I was able to finish this fairly quickly and have a lot of fun doing so, I really enjoyed most of the levels (I only hated one actually, but that's because I sucked at it) and was able to learn some new stuff through them.
This Kaizo hack was quite fun, and is great for beginners (especially when it comes to teaching regrabs). However, I did dislike the fact that about half of the music was vanilla, and that Sawrfing Castle just felt really rough compared to all of the other levels in the game, creating an odd difficulty spike. None of the levels really felt exceptionally clever, generic more than anything else. Despite these flaws, great work!
My first Kaizo hack after lern 2 Kaizo and it was really enjoyable. Fun level ideas and always satisfying to beat them. Not too hard to get frustrated (except one particulat castle ) but always challenging. Great experience for beginners like me or people looking for a fast paced, short and sweet game.
Love this hack!
This is the second hack I'm playing (after Robfather World), and I love it.
Great customs music, nice difficulty for beginners. Challenging, but not too hard.
Unfortunately I struggle with the second level in the star world (it's the yoshi level).
I don't get the first jump, where you have to eat the shell to kill the goombas.
Everytime the same:
I eat the shell, I spit the fire to kill the goombas, I jump of yoshi .... but the yoshi has not enough speed for the rest of the part,... I'm getting crazy. Is there any technique I have to use to make this part work?
I got it once, but that was very lucky and I'm not able to do it again (yet).
This was my first Kaizo hack, and I loved it til the end. The only level I didn't like was Sawrfing Castle; that level can go shove a saw up it's ass. However, I do not regret this being my first Kaizo hack, and I can't wait to play Quickie World 2! Here are my times.
This is a great hack and it will always hold a special place in my heart. This was the first hack I played and has taught me a lot. Thank you to Valdio for creating it, and for all of those who have played it and helped others to find it.
Quickie World is a very fun hack that improves your skill for various techniques without making things too tight. The level of difficulty increases as you move through the hack without spiking to much.
The hardest/tightest part of Quickie World may be Sawfring Castle. Do not be discouraged if this level takes you some time, as it is difficult, but worth the trouble.
I can't believe I haven't commented on this game yet. This is one of my favorite games EVER. Thank you for making it! It has brought both tears of joy and of speedrun frustration to this old gamer's eyes! Thank you again!
I'm not able to run the game for some reason.
I've hit a dead end on helplessly googling so I hope someone here is able to help me.
I'm using the latest version of windows 10 and snes9x on a really weak laptop and just get the badchecksum error and a black screen.
Don't know if I let out something important, but if anyone has the patience to deal with this: You're my only hope.
This is the second kaizo hack I have completed after quickie world 2.
IMO more difficult than QW2 but still beginner friendly. Well designed levels with a fair difficulty curve. The Second castle destroyed me. Very fun hack good work Valdio.
This is a great hack to start out with for Kaizo, it's what got me hooked. Some things can take a little getting used to for newbies and there are some quirks to be sure, but each level is short and fun and takes minimal grinding for the hard parts.
Really loved this. I've played a few levels of other Kaizo hacks, but this was the first one I concentrated and finished, mostly blind. The shorter level length was very good for newer Kaizo players, and there was a nice variety of challenges, with the difficulty ramping up a bit towards the end.
I can't get this hack to work or any hack on this site for that matter. I really want to get into this stuff, but I seem to be at a lost. I have made sure I have headers, and super Mario world and I just have no idea how to make this work at all. So guess I'll never get to play any rom hacks.
I was looking for a kaizo hack that was easy enough for me to start playing these games, and after a few attempts I remembered of seeing this one, and it has been an awesome experience, it makes really easy to understand the SMW mechanics and the level design is so fluid and fun that it makes you want to learn how to beat it, and the satisfaction after you beat a level is incredible. Totally in love with this hack, the soundtrack is fire btw.
Excellent hack, is pretty much exactly as advertised. Difficult enough to provide a challenge, but not so difficult as to turn newer players away. Art direction and soundtrack are well-thought out and interesting. Mostly minimizes SMW jank.
Finally a Kaizo that can train your timing without suffer. \('0'\)
It is a good Kaizo to the beginners me included :T to learn the basics of an Kaizo.
The ckeckpoints here saved me from rage, btw.
Without using savestates, I finished 5 levels in under 1 hour
Note: 5/5 ( ^-^)/
Great hack. Levels are short and flow very well. Checkpoints are well placed and appreciated. Would love to see another hack like this. This is my first Kaizo hack, and it is a good one to start with. I see myself playing this one for a while. It should be fun to speedrun.
GrandPooBear adviced this hack for new Kaizo players. And I approve of his choice! I've watched tons of kaizo hacks and 3 hours ago I tried my best on this hack. Fumbling about at the start as a new "kaizo player", but I am proud to say that I beat the first 2 levels in under 3 hours with 0 prior kaizo experience (and with little SMW experience). The geart music and short levels really help! Can't wait to play the rest of the hack!
Great hack for people who are new to kaizo. You learn a huge part of all the kaizo "basics" and it's not "frustrating" either. Really enjoyed the hack. Looks great, music is really good aswell and of course the gameplay is fun too.
Thanks for adding retry and nerfing the first castle. Having finished the hack, I enjoyed most of it. Indeed, most levels didn't require hours of grinding and took me less than an hour, with the notable exception of the second castle, which took eight hours. That level alone makes this a non-beginner-friendly hack.
I'm a noob in term of romhack and I am not able to apply the patch to my clean super mario world rom and I know that I did the manipulation correctly. If someone could help me I'd really appreciate it because I really want to play this romhack thanks.
So ive just played the hack. If i have to criticize something i would say the beginning message is kinda misleading, as ive found myself having to slow down MANY times. Like in the level "glitchcat lake".
While the hack is on the easier side and the levels are very short, i probably wouldnt recommend it as a first kaizo (or maybe even for real beginners) as it require the player to be somewhat confortable with the controller intricacies (mostly regrabs), and to have some good repertoire of tricks.
I've only play the first 3 levels and it's been awesome and easy so far. The rest of them I might play on stream tonight.
I think that it's the perfect romhack for kaizo beginners. You did a great job with this romhack.
This is my first difficult Mario hack and so far I am really enjoying it. I watched Barbarian play it on youtube and thought I would have a chance. It takes a complete beginner (haven't really played any mario hacks before) quite a while per level. So far I am on the second level ending. Cannot for the life of me get past that shell less koopa. So far I am really liking it as the sections per level seem really short, and I get time to practice little techniques.
EDIT: Up to the fourth level. trying to find a place to practice shell jumps though as I have never had to do one.
