Tip: Layer 3 backgrounds and tides disappear when you hit a message box, so plan your level around that. For example, you can add a sublevel without layer 3 at the start/midpoint, and include your message there.
Designed as a kaizo "starter pack", similar to Quickie World or Baby Kaizo World, though perhaps a little harder. Each stage is meant to either teach a mechanic or explore the various SMW themes (Forest, Underground, Ghost, etc.)
Includes a few secret exits and switch palaces to unlock the final challenge in the Special World. Has Retry and Remove HUD patches. Enjoy!
This hack is overall pretty fun, but varies wildly from level to level. Some of the levels are fun and fair whilst some feel like they could've used additional testing because they are inconsistent or have un-fun setups. It does a good job teaching beginners the basics but I could imagine some sections being incredibly frustrating. Fine work overall though, but some edits would've made a big difference. Cheers.
