I had a lot of fun playing through this hack, overall very well done!
I agree with NatsuFireball that the last few levels have a pretty big skill jump which might be frustrating for players looking for an "easy" hack. I'd still recommend this to beginners and experienced players. The demo screen and 70 star bonus soundtracks really put this hack over the top for me
Two big softlock hazards that caught me a few times: the diagonal branches on the tree in main hub are softlock hazards and the small trees in Watery Woods.
A wonderful hack with 8 well designed worlds, full of nice gameplay ideas and nostalgic musics =]
Overworld is cleverly designed too and has a lot of secrets !
Game starts easy but becomes hard to the end, with some unforgiving stars to get, such as the reds of Bowser 3, so I would say the difficulty should be set to "normal" rather than "easy" as the game becomes a lot harder than the original to the end. The 70 starts are all obtainable without savestates though.
10/10 (5 starts) Thank you very much, I had a lot of fun "for to" playing your game =]
