Fun vanilla hack. Would recommend if you're looking for some challenging vanilla platforming.

Finished it now with all 74 exits. Some more thoughts. World's 1-5 were fairly painless for a very hard hack. There were a few tough parts, like in castle 5, and I died a handful of times. It's getting hot in here was definitely like getting kicked in the pants, repeatedly.

World 6 was slightly tougher than earlier worlds, but Choco cliffs was particularly devilish. World 7 was a bit harder still, and the first part of castle 7 before the checkpoint was nasty.

The star and special worlds were both really easy compared to worlds 6 and 7 of the regular game. That seemed out of order to me. Also, what was the deal with the last special level besides all the freebies, anything?

Overall, I had a few hours of fun with this, and it was an enjoyable play. After having completed this, my rating remains unchanged at 4/5. Reasons for 4 stars and not 5 are as follows: The lack of a more developed overworld, lack of Yoshi, and lack of open levels that include flight mechanics. Another thing is that (almost?) none of the pipes in the levels besides those that lead to alternate exits go anywhere, which makes this feel like more of a obstacle course than a Mario game. This doesn't support saving at any time from the overworld, and doesn't have SRAM saving either.

Overall level design, consistently good choice of music, and the fact that I played through this without noticing a single bug gives this 4 stars. Thanks for this game, was fun.

I disagree however about the non-existence if a difficutly-curve. Well, at least kinda. While world 1 is easy (for a very hard hack), world 2 will get more challenging quickly and World 4 has the hardest Level in the hack this far. It's not an optimal difficulty curve, but the worlds hardest level mostly beats the hardest level in the previous world. Also, world 5 will have a slight difficulty-spike and World 6 will make you question your sanity. Have Fun.


I look forward to finishing this actually, and will return to comment when I do. Hopefully, the second half of this has just as good music as the first.

I'm just over half way through this now, and here are my thoughts this far:

The overworld, even though this is clearly a vanilla hack, is awful. Paths and map layout world to world (I'm at the castle on World 4 with 2 star world levels beaten, and all paths fully explored up to this point) is linear and flat design wise.

The levels, however, are challenging in all the right ways. The level design here seems to be based on precision, timing, and reaction speed more so than each level just being a free-for-all against an endless swarm of enemies. If I had to summarize the game with a phrase, it'd be "tough, but fair".

The difficulty of this is an interesting bit. This hack doesn't really have a difficulty curve, it's consistently hard to very hard, but has a few levels and sections in levels that I think are closer to kaizo light. The levels I've completed thus far are beatable without savestates, I didn't use them, but there are a few particularly nasty levels that I had to replay to finish. I'd recommend this to players of any skill level. 4/5 all day.

I just got 74 exits without save states. I'm dizzy, I can't even believe I did it. It's almost 1 am, I've played for over 4 hours. omg.
Anyway, the hack is good, fantastic level design, but the overworld is bogus.
Here's a few levels that can go fuck themselves:
Castle 4
This stage rocks
Fire something i don't remember
The last god damn castle
Yoshi's house

Also, I'd like a list with the music used in this hack, would that be possible?

Good hack. I was debating 4 or 5 stars, but Tower of the Dolls as BGM in the last stage pushed it over the edge to 5. #smw{:TUP:}

I have two remarks. One is that I don't understand why the Special World has easier stages than the main path. The second is that I don't think this warrants the Very Hard difficulty rating, if a hack like Jump 1/2 is rated only "Hard."

This hack was fantastic from start to finish. Fun levels with good increasing challenge as you progress. Really nothing bad to say. The music choices were 100/100. Thank you!
