This is an amazing game and i cant believe its your first hack. I love the level design and the difficulty is good. The secrets are not that hard so they are still fun to play. I cant wait for more games by you! 5 stars!
However some of my previous comments remain, for example, you asked where I can find you examples of vanilla edits, well in your 1st screenshots, that's exactly the same level layout of Sunken Ghost Ship in SMW. This hack is in decent shape with level design but still has some minor problems. However I do not think a further update is necessary. You already submitted 2 updates to a 2016 hack (I'm referring to this one) in a week, please understand that moderators would rather not play the same hack 10 times for small adjustements.
I will not play this hack again, i already did 2 times. I like it in it's current state and i just believe you fixed the small issues i pointed out. Even if not, the hack is still pretty solid and fun to play.
Level designs are often more interessting now and you fixed the cutoffs from the OW and the stages themselfes.
I recommend this hack to everyone searching for a classic, pretty easy vanilla experience without frustration but also without surprises.
Just pretty good gameplay with good coin, power-up & enemy placements, which makes most of the levels very enjoyable.
