My first hack uploaded to this site, therefore I kept it a bit tame as I learned how to use the editor and such. I focused on unique themes and strong level design - this is the type of game that would be fun in short bursts with a portable emulator.
I tried to design the levels to be playgrounds for people who have mastered Mario's move set, especially the midair twirl (thanks to GreenHammerBro) and wall jump (thanks to KKevinM and MarioE).
Two worlds are included in the demo, plus a few side areas since this hack has a huge emphasis on finding secrets, much like the original SMW. I hope you enjoy searching for them!
If this hack gets enough support, I will work on publishing the full game. I truly hope you enjoy and constructive criticism is always appreciated! :)
Im fairly new to the smw rom hack scene, but this has been my favorite so far. there are a few places where the color needs tweeked a bit, but thats about it for my input. I love the twirl/wall jump mechanic you put in. cabt wait to see a full game. thank you very much!
This was a really fun demo, good job! There are 2 oddities I noticed, though:
1. You can wall jump above the screen in some levels and fall into the ground from above. This isn't a softlock because you can escape with wall jumps. I'm really not sure if this was intentional or not.
2. You can swim over the ghost ship in the ghost ship level at the start above the screen for a while but it leads to nothing. You might want to block that off.
I understand that this is just a demo, but I wanted to let you know about all this stuff. Again, good job!
