This hack is meant as a way of having fun and for beginner in kaizo to feel good about doing cool-looking tricks without being punished or stressed that easily. However there are a few kaizo blocks in the later parts of the hack. As well as some trolls.
I will never claim that this hack is great but I strongly believe that this should be on the playlist for all beginners in kaizo.
The hack contains 13 exits including 2 hidden switch palaces and one hidden side quest (11 levels in total, 3 secret exits), it also has 2 "hidden" 3-up moons. Levels are quite short but containing a few kaizo tricks. Levels become more challenging closer to the end but still on an adequate level for those who want a beginners kaizo-hack.
Worldpeace's retry patch and Alcaro´s double spinjumo antifail patch has been implemented.

This was fun up until the lava level with the shells, which seems to require maneuvers I never even came close to pulling off and which are not introduced well for "beginners" to learn. Very frustrating and not in a way that made me want to retry, unlike the rest of the hack, which always seemed doable with enough tries.
I gave up at that point, I feel the difficulty spike is way beyond anything else in the hack and it's a bit of a downer.
Really fun hack. My only issue is that there's a couple of blind jumps and it kind of ruins the fun when you die to something that you couldn't see coming. other than that, great hack and i would recommend
This was the first hack(1.3) I beat without savestates and I love it. A great entry point for people looking to get in to these types of hacks.
I'm playing through again and I just noticed 2 minor small things.
In the first switch palace, you can softlock if you clip the p switch through the blocks at the very beginning of the level. I don't think that's likely to happen unless you're going super fast.
In the Dognapper, with the section with the shell going between the two on/off blocks, if you jump off the first platform a bit too early, the on/off block despawns and won't get hit, even when it seems like it should.
This was a very fun hack to play through. The soundtrack was good and platforming was fun but in some parts you had to wait (quite a bit) which disrupted the flow. Overall, solid first hack. I would recommend this to someone who's looking for a hack with same difficulty as quickie world.
