Ever since first watching speedruns and TASs of SMW, I was stuck by how awesome the cape powerup was, but simultaneously disappointed at how little of that is shown off in the Vanilla game (flying over levels, BORING). This is my attempt to do justice to the cape, and show off what it is capable of doing in the hands of those who have mastered it.
This is a difficult chocolate kaizo hack that requires in-depth understanding of the cape to complete. I have made a complete walkthrough included with the patch explaining how to do every part of the hack.
This romhack contains no hidden blocks, except those that are needed to complete the levels. The purpose of this romhack is simply to showcase awesome cape tricks and encourage more people to learn and use the cape.
Great job! It is quite evident that you've put hundreds of hours into this piece of work, and for your first hack I have to say I can't ask for much more. I also commend you for taking feedback from the first round of players before submitting it to the site.
The hack is plenty acceptable as is, but there are some things you may want to consider should you ever submit a future update:
-In the last level, some indication that bombs cannot cross the ceiling boundary
-Indication that shells may immediately accelerate (particularly in level 5)
-Flying under the level at the last checkpoint in level 5
-Indication (or simply a different color, etc) for pipes that have suction and for pipes/tiles that grant flight/P-meter
I hope people who want a hard cape hack strongly consider this one, I even learned quite a few things myself!
