Decent little hack. The additions make it feel a bit more unique, and the length does make it justice. I found the first level pretty disappointing, but the other 3 levels do make up for it; Tax Fraud Mountain is pretty fun and Bullet Bridge delivers some action. If I can pinpoint one thing I hate is those fireball shooters. They're more annoying than anything.
Wow,this is a blast of hack!^^
The graphics is soooo cooooool!The level design,joined to the splendid OST,accompany the player to a short but magic world,that all gamers that loves pure platforming should explore^^
and...I really liked the "run & gun" elements where you have to evade bullets like Contra^^fortune that I have much experience with Dodonpachi,so I fast learned how to survive to that obstacle.
The only bad things:I prefer much more the original Castle theme beside DCK2's,because the last level of this hack lose so many atmopsphere,tension and hype without the SMW castle Theme...real bad,I'm really sorry for that because that Blue Castle is an amazing stuff of Castle level...
oh,and difficulty,for me,should be normal because I played many normal hack that have more difficulty than any level of this hack.But pheraps,is I that are already experienced with Contra & Dodonpachi...
5 stars for sure fo me,this should be absolutely accepted,because is an example of the true potential of SNES hardware and SMWhacking^^
